COLUMBIA CITY ‚ÄĒ Tune the radio dial to WJHS 91.5 and students from Columbia City High School can be heard broadcasting community news, events as well as popular music.
The station, which started in 1985, works as a on-air classroom.
‚ÄúYou learn as you go,‚ÄĚ said Hunter Clark, a CCHS junior. ‚ÄúThis is a class where you learn on the job, but the experience is invaluable.‚ÄĚ
For Clark, the radio station has helped direct his career choice.
COLUMBIA CITY ‚ÄĒ Who should be in charge?
That is the question asked by the Indiana Conference of Mayors (ICOM). ICOM has begun a campaign known as Trust Local.
The message has been spread at the Indiana Statehouse this year, with the principle being that control should be in the hands of city and local government as much as possible, rather than with the state or federal government.
‚ÄúSometimes the state broad brushes an issue,‚ÄĚ said Columbia City Mayor Ryan Daniel.
