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.

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.

COLUMBIA CITY — “It’s a grand night for singing,” as the popular Broadway tune says.

A special evening is being planned for elementary school students who might be interested in singing with Whitley Community Children’s Choir (WCCC).

Thursday, from 5 to 6:30 p.m., children and parents can visit the choir at Northern Heights Elementary School, north of Columbia City.

Those attending should enter the school through door three.

This is a no-obligation opportunity to participate with the choir, the night is just to “try it and see if there is an interest in joining.”
