SOUTH WHITLEY â€” A dream which seemed unrealistic two years ago is now becoming a reality for South Whitley residents Katey Till and Colleen French.
The two mothers have been working vigorously to raise money in order to transform the communityâ€™s town park into a magical playland complete with a fire truck and colorful village houses.
â€śWe are really anxious and ready to put something down there,â€ť French said. â€śWith gas prices up, it would be nice to have something new and inviting in this town because people may not be able to afford to drive to another town for a park.â€ť
COLUMBIA CITY â€” The Columbia City Common Council is expected to announce the bidding process for new police radios at its regular meeting Tuesday.
In recent weeks, the board has heard presentations from the two front-runners to receive the city radio contract â€” J&K Communications, a local company, and Motorola.
Departments throughout the county of police, fire and emergency medical and dispatch personnel have been making a transition to 800 MHz technology since last year.
