RELEVANT EQUATIONS: Eberly gives purpose to math problems

September 13, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — For the students who say they’ll never use superior mathematical equations after they graduate from school — teacher Brett Eberly concurs.

Eberly, a math teacher at Eagle Tech Adademy, Columbia City, has taken a new approach to teaching his students — giving them skills to last a lifetime.

“It’s not realistic to think they’ll use this math for the rest of their lives,” Eberly said. “My goal is to help them build problem-solving skills so when they’re presented with a problem in the working world, they’ll have the experience and can work their way through that problem.”

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT: Tio proposes blanket ERA in city

September 13, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — Columbia City’s council is taking a blanket Economic Revitalization Area (ERA) under consideration.

ERA is a specific designation required for business owners to request a tax abatement for economic development.

Currently, economic development and revitalization areas within the city limits are patchy and numerous — there are 25-30 different designated areas.

Whitley County Economic Development Corporation President Alan Tio said putting a blanket ERA designation throughout the city limits would help simplify the tax abatement process.
