Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for students grades kindergarten through 12th.

MAKING CENTS: School officials weigh the costs

September 4, 2012

Editor’s note: This is the final installment of a four-part series on public school funding and how money is dispersed within a school system.

Ask the average Whitley County resident about any of the county’s three school systems and they might mention the score of Friday night’s football game, which teachers are the most popular with their children or what school was like in years past when they attended.
Not many residents could speak with authority about the costs to maintain the county’s public schools.
The Capital Projects Fund is fueled by county property taxes.

BREAK-INS: Vehicle break-ins on decline in Col. City

September 4, 2012

COLUMBIA CITY — While vehicle break-ins in Fort Wayne are on the rise, Columbia City’s vehicle break-ins are on the decline, but still a continual problem.
“This seems to be a common problem for us,” said Longenbaugh.
“With this we often see where we get a group of juveniles who wander around town and get into unlocked vehicles.”
In 2010, 18 break-ins occurred from Jan. 1 to Aug. 31.
In 2011, the number increased to 37 from Jan. 1 to Aug. 31, but this year’s report has seen a decline to 27 break-ins.
