Adams Central outguns Lady Eagles, 16-13

May 2, 2013

CHURUBUSCO — No one gave up.

Churubusco’s softball team found itself behind more than once in Wednesday’s loss to Adams Central, but several times the Lady Eagles clawed back to make the game close again.

The Lady Flyin’ Jets defeated ‘Busco by a football-like score of 16-13, and just like the gridiron, there were offensive flurries from both sides and power on display.

Offensively, the game was tight in the early going. A first inning solo shot and home run blast in the fifth helped Adams Central open up a 5-1 lead. But ‘Busco responded.

RISE TO POWER: Lickey to take electric dept. reins

May 2, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — Few people would consider 13 as their lucky number.

But for Shawn Lickey, the number has a nice ring to it. He has been working with the Columbia City Electric Department for 13 years, and he will step into the superintendent’s position at the end of this month to take over for a retiring Larry Whetstone.

The story diverges though, with the use of the word luck. Lickey has worked hard to get where he is at and has taken advantage of many learning opportunities.

MODIFIED JUSTICE: New bill could affect court system

May 2, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — Indiana House Bill 1006 would be expected to have an impact on the inmate population at state prisons and local jails.

It could also bring changes to the justice system inside the courtroom.

If the bill is passed, felonies will move from four different classes to a level system. Felony convicts will also be required to serve a greater percentage of time in the system. Provisions will be in place as well for greater sentencing on the local level.

While the exact impact is not known, some inside the courtroom believe reviews of the current code are necessary.
