COLUMBIA CITY â Three brothers, originally from Columbia City, reunited last week for a chance to relive some childhood memories.
Jim, Dick and John Walter, affectionately known as âThe Walter Boys,â grew up in Columbia City, but life has taken them outside of town. Sitting in the backyard of Dickâs home on West Lincolnway, the threesome shared some of their favorite memories of growing up in the area.
âItâs been two years since we got together,â Dick said. âThis is wonderful.â
COLUMBIA CITY â Out of 10 senior girls, only one could be declared Distinguished Young Woman (DYW) of Whitley County for 2014.
That one was Hannah Schaefer, a Columbia City High School student.
âWow! This is so unexpected,â Schaefer said. âItâs wonderful, but right now, itâs overwhelming.â
Schaefer is the daughter of Mark and Mary Ann Schaefer. In addition to her designation as DYW, Schaefer also earned the award in both the Talent category and in Self Expression.
COLUMBIA CITY â The cityâs streets were full of orange T-shirt wearing Lutheransâ Sunday as three local congregations came together to volunteer in Columbia City.
The work day was part of a nation-wide initiative celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ECLA).
âGodâs work, our hands,â was the motto for the day. Judy Follis, event coordinator and pastor of Hope Lutheran Church, saw the day as a chance to give back to the community that has supported the local ECLA congregations.
