GARAGE SALES: ‘Ordinance needs enforcement’

October 17, 2013

CHURUBUSCO — With Churubusco leaders working on a revised garage sale ordinance, Wayne Yager, a resident, offered an example of why the town needs an enforceable policy.

At Wednesday’s meeting, Yager told Town Council members that he felt the town’s ordinances were not being enforced.

“You need to be doing a better job of enforcing ordinances pertaining to the appearance of the town,” Yager said.

According to Yager, a home on West Whitley Street held a garage sale which lasted for a lengthy period of time.

FOOTBALL PREVIEW: Whitko playing for championship

October 17, 2013

SOUTH WHITLEY — Whitko’s football team had its five-game winning streak snapped last week against Rochester.

Even worse for the 5-3 Wildcats, their loss to the Zebras was their first to a Three Rivers Conference opponent.

This week, though, Whitko still has much to play for when it takes the field. The Wildcats can put the 26-9 loss to the Zebras in the rearview mirror and focus on visiting Tippecanoe Valley.

The winner of the game between the Wildcats and Vikings will get at least a share of the TRC championship, and possibly more.

FOOTBALL PREVIEW: Columbia City faces another hot opponent

October 17, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY— After three straight weeks of playing a ranked football team, Columbia City gets a reprieve.

But not much of one. The Norwell Knights are currently unranked in Class 4A, but are red-hot, having won their last three games in a row.

Those three wins came against East Noble, DeKalb and Homestead.

While Columbia City lost to East Noble and Homestead this year, the Eagles also beat Bellmont, who defeated Norwell.

This match-up between the 3-5 Eagles and 3-5 Knights will be even more interesting, though, as it is a sectional preview.

The road to semi-state

October 17, 2013

Columbia City High School’s Marching Eagles stepped their way right into a Gold Rating and Distinction in Visual Effect Saturday at the Indiana State School Music Association (ISSMA) district competition at Homestead High School in Fort Wayne.

The Eagles will compete again this Saturday for the Lafayette regional, with hopes to advance to semi-state.

FOOTBALL PREVIEW: Eagles look to rebound all the way to title

October 17, 2013

CHURUBUSCO — Churubusco’s conference winning streak, dating back to 2010, was snapped last week by Fairfield.

Despite that result, the 7-1 Eagles still have much incentive in their final game against Lakeland, which is 6-2.

‘Busco could rebound from defeat all the way into a tie for the Northeast Corner Conference championship.

Fairfield’s conference slate is over, and the Falcons ended at 7-1 in the NECC. Churubusco, at 6-1, could get a tie for the championship with a win Friday.

EMERGENCY PROCEDURES: WCCS trains staff on CPR

October 17, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — A law passed in 2012 now requires all new school teachers and instructors renewing their licences to have CPR, AED and Heimlich certification.

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is an emergency procedure, performed in an effort to manually preserve intact brain function until further measures are taken to restore blood circulation and breathing in a person in cardiac arrest.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED: ISMS girls end 12-year Maple Creek reign

October 17, 2013

OSSIAN — Indian Springs Middle School’s girls cross country team wrapped up its season in prime fashion.

The Lady Eagle-Stars raced out of the season as double conference champions, after winning the NELMSC (NLC) Saturday, and the NHMSC (NHC) Wednesday night.

Not only did ISMS grab the conference title, the girls beat Maple Creek (Carroll) for the first time in 12 years in the 10-team conference.

Maple Creek has held the conference title since 2002.

GARAGE SALE ORDINANCE: So far, so good

October 17, 2013

CHURUBUSCO — A new ordinance was introduced at Churubusco’s Town Council meeting Wednesday night.

After the town tried to pass a new policy on garage sales this summer, residents created a stir over the proposed permit fee and the limitations placed on the number of sales allowed during a calendar year.

Because the debate was thick, town leaders agreed to scrap the proposal and go back to the drawing board.

Wednesday’s meeting offered signs that the town may be on the right track.
