CITY: Blanket ERA ‘makes sense’

September 30, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — Columbia City's Common Council is ready to take the next steps in placing a blanket Economic Revitalization Area within the city limits, just as the Whitley County Council has done in the county.

Several council members at last week's meeting agreed the designation "makes sense."

Currently, there are several small ERAs throughout the city, and every time a company wants to apply for a tax abatement, a process of public hearings and council appearances have to take place before the company can even apply for the abatement.

DOUBLE PLAY: Twin brothers spend Friday nights under the lights

September 30, 2013

SOUTH WHITLEY — It’s not double trouble, but twice blessed for Whitko High School’s football team.

Caleb and Logan Busz, 14-year-old identical twins, have spent the last eight seasons on the sideline for the Wildcats’ football team.

After several seasons as water boys, the Busz brothers are now on their third year as the squad’s ball boys.

The boys began helping the team because their father, Joey Busz, is an assistant coach for the Wildcats.

With two older brothers, both boys agreed there’s a lot of football in the Busz household.
