January 18, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — 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.

TECH SAVVY: WCCS may have technology changes on horizon

January 18, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — 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.

“You 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,” said Dr. Pat O’Connor, WCCS superintendent.

PLAY BALL: DeVol Field revives baseball past

January 18, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — 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 town’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.
