Editorâ€™s note: The following is the first of a four part series in honor of Fatherâ€™s Day.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” John Slavich is known as one of the faces of the Whitley County Community Foundation, but to his five children he is known as â€śDad.â€ť
This father is somewhat of a â€śsuper dad.â€ť Having two teenage kids in his 50â€™s will make him a superhero to any young parent.
Lowell Elden Sidwell (Sid), 81, passed away at 10:50 p.m. Sunday, June 10, 2012, at his home, in Columbia City, surrounded by family.
Sidâ€™s many successful business accomplishments include the opening of â€śSidâ€™s Barbershopâ€ť on Wells Street in 1957, â€śNew Look Auto Body Shopâ€ť in 1969, and the â€śFish of Stroh Restaurantsâ€ť starting in 1973.
COLUMBIA CITY â€“ Do you have a few â€“ or perhaps a collection â€“ of old postcards from Whitley County?
If so, The Post & Mail would like you to share them in a special community project.
â€śWish You Were Here . . . Historic Postcards from Whitley County, Ind.â€ť is the project that will be completed during the next six to eight weeks.
The final result will be publication of a special â€ścoffee tableâ€ť book that will contain about 100 pages, printed on 70# paper, perfect bound with a colorful laminated cover.
