After a harsh winter, many roads across Northeast Indiana have been left cracked, and Columbia City is no different.
The Columbia City Street Department received two bids, with Pavement Solutions being the lowest bidder at $37,180. Officials said the work is essential for street maintenance.

The new sidewalk and curb will be on Washington Street, and run from Jefferson Street to Ellsworth Street.
For many children the best part of celebrating a birthday, aside from spending the day with their friends and family, is opening the colorfully wrapped boxes and bags of special gifts meant for them.

Sydney Pequignot is a member of the Whitley County Dazzlers, a special needs cheerleading squad.
She encouraged her friends and family to donate to the squad in lieu of purchasing a gift for her birthday.
