Brice said typically, dog-fighting rings publish underground magazines, e-mail and text message each other to get the word out about what they call a â€śdog show.â€ť Saturday nightâ€™s show just happened to be hosted in Churubusco.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” Gun permit applications are still on the rise in Whitley County, as both Columbia Cityâ€™s Police Department and the Whitley County Sheriffâ€™s Department tripled their applications in December.
