Col. City comes out on top of shootout

November 16, 2013

While Columbia City has beaten the Lady Wildcats the last five years in a row — the Lady Eagles have not scored more than 80 points in any game since 2000 — 13 years ago.

County rivalries heat up this weekend

November 15, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY— Basketball season is just beginning for high school girls around the state of Indiana this week.

Despite it being so early in the season, the battle for Whitley County supremacy will be waged this weekend.

Whitko will host Columbia City Friday night at 8 p.m. The Lady Wildcats will then turn around and travel to the other Whitley County high school — Churubusco, for a game Saturday night at 7:30 p.m.

The contests will somewhat determine the best team in the county, but not completely, as Columbia City does not play ’Busco this year.

Water concerns continue to rise

November 15, 2013

O TANNENBAUM: The Clugston prepares for annual tree walk

November 15, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — A Christmas tree is a traditional item to mark the December holiday. However, trees become more than decoration when they are part of The Clugston’s Annual Walk of Trees.

In its fourth year, The Walk of Trees will open for tours Friday, Nov. 29 at 5 p.m. and will continue Fridays and Saturdays from 5 to 8 p.m. through Saturday, Dec. 14.

The event is free and allows area businesses and organizations a chance to sponsor and decorate a tree. More than 20 trees are expected to be a part of this year’s walk.

WHAT’S IN A NAME?: Small town history provides a comic relief

November 15, 2013

LORANE — Whitley County is peppered with towns that once existed on their own, but have since been incorporated into larger municipalities.

Although time may have diminished small towns’ independence, the legacy and history behind places such as Peabody and Tunker still live on.

Never has that sentiment been more true than for the little town that once was — Lorane.

Located off of West Lincolnway, near the County Road 350 West intersection, the town was founded in 1850.

In 1851, a post office was established in a small country general store which burned in 1855.
