COLUMBIA CITY â€” While some people in the country might feel they are still digging out of the Great Recession, some economic indicators show Whitley County might be back to normal.
The Community Research Institute (CRI) at IPFW released its 2012 document of business dynamics in Whitley County. Most of the findings showed growth in the county, with expansion in job numbers and dollars invested locally.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” Changes in technology have affected almost every sphere of life, with education being no exception.
Whitley County Consolidated Schools (WCCS) has looked at changes in how it purchases curriculum. The district, as it examines textbooks, also examines the software present. This has led to conversations regarding the future of technology for WCCS.
â€śYou can look at things and say this is fabulous, and think you can do great things, but applied to larger scale it does not work with our hardware,â€ť said Dr. Pat Oâ€™Connor, WCCS superintendent.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” Something old in Columbia City will have a new feel to it and could recharge memory banks for some in the community.
DeVol Field is having a baseball/softball diamond reconstructed with an estimated target for completion in the summer.
This is not the first time the field has been used for these sports in the townâ€™s history.
When Morsches Park was constructed, the fields down at DeVol fell out of use. There will only be one field there in 2013, as opposed to the multiple fields that were there in the past. The timing will be impeccable for the city.

Whitley County defies trend, sees growth in 2012

WCCS may have technology changes on horizon
