   COLUMBIA CITY — Usually power and athleticism win out in a sporting event.
   A win usually also follows when your top two singles players win in a tennis match.
   That was not the case for Bethany Christian when it traveled to DeVol Field courts Tuesday to take on Columbia City in boys’ tennis.
   Despite dropping the top two singles matches, the Eagles used a sweep of doubles play along with a undefeated streak by their No. 3 singles player to win a close 3-2 match.

Putts drop as City beat North Side

August 24, 2010

   COLUMBIA CITY — Putting is the ultimate test of any golfer’s game. It can make a bad tee shot be forgotten when a long putt is sunk or it can turn against you making a great start turn into a snowman on the scorecard.
   Monday, Columbia City girls’ golf had just enough putts to post its fifth consecutive dual match score under 200 as a team.
   In the process, the Lady Eagles matched their own win total from a year ago beating North Side on the back nine at Eagle Glen Golf Course 198-260.

August 24, 2010

Linda Ramsey of Columbia City lost her 28-year-old daughter less than a month ago, and as hard as it is, she says she’s talking about it — albeit with teary eyes — to just about anyone who will listen.
Her daughter, Lilly Helsley, of Middletown, died July 30 after smoking K2 for the first time.

If you’re looking for family entertainment this weekend, travel no farther than Larwill.
The 156th annual Squawbuck Days festival kicks off Friday night, but the bulk of the activities take place Saturday.

In the summer of 2009, a group of Hoosiers concerned about the time zone in which Indiana was placed began a push to get the state on Central Time.
