PREVIEW: Third-ranked Eagles welcome Fairfield

October 10, 2013

CHURUBUSCO — Churubusco’s football team is preparing for its final home game Friday and will face a team on a hot streak.

Unbeaten Churubusco (7-0, 6-0) will welcome the Falcons (6-1, 5-1) for a 7 p.m. kickoff Friday.

Fairfield is fresh off of a victory against previously-unbeaten Lakeland. The Falcons lost their second game of the year to Prairie Heights and have been unblemished ever since. In each of its last five wins, Fairfield has scored more than 40 points.

THEIR SHARE: WCCS questions TIF districts

October 10, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — As Whitley County has the honor of having some of the oldest and most successful Tax Increment Funding (TIF) districts in Indiana, some members of Whitley County Consolidated Schools Board of Trustees are questioning when the schools will get their share in the tax money generated from those developments.

“TIF districts are becoming an issue as far as schools go,” board member Jill Western said. “They’re getting too far away from what they’re designed to do.”

WCCS invited its attorney, John Whiteleather, to Monday’s meeting to counsel the board on the TIF’s impact.
