Anyone whoâ€™s ever figured a studentâ€™s reading skills are the responsibility of the English teacher would be pleasantly surprised within the halls of Columbia City High School.
Students here get a healthy dose of that first member of the Three Râ€™s no matter whose class theyâ€™re in.
Teachers and administrators at Whitley County Consolidated Schools have been boosting instruction in reading, even in subjects that involve using test tubes, a slide rule or studying the Civil War.
A rural Columbia City resident came before the Whitley County Commissioners Monday with a concern about truckers on his road â€” truckers who donâ€™t belong on that thoroughfare.
Charlie Acheson, who lives on County Road 700 East, said over-the-road truckers travel down his road trying to make their way to Steel Dynamics Industries, Inc.
The problem is, according to Acheson and County Highway Director Michael Barton, you canâ€™t get there from here.
