Eagles jam Northridge, 59-48

January 2, 2013

FORT WAYNE — For Columbia City’s fifth game in five days, head basketball coach Chris Benedict is pleased.

“Sometimes it might not be the prettiest, but our guys make the plays to win the basketball game,” Benedict said. “They do a really good job of finding a way to get the job done.”

Columbia City topped Northridge 59-48 at the Memorial Coliseum Tuesday night in the Super Hoops Classic.

The Eagles were far from their 90 percent 3-point shooting display against Whitko in the season-opener. In fact, Columbia City shot 17 percent from behind the arc, one of the worst of the season.

RURAL AMERICA: Small farms losing face in government

January 2, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — Indiana has 47,000 farms that are 220 acres or less. More than 75 percent of the state’s farms fall into the “small farm” category, according to a 2007 Census of Agriculture. With such a high percentage of small farms in the state, agriculture legislation should be a hot topic among voters.

However, U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack reportedly appeared at a forum where he said rural America is “becoming less and less relevant.” He encouraged voters with a stake in agriculture to speak up so rural America can still have a voice.

NEW DIRECTOR: Emerging leader spearheads childcare center

January 1, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — Whitley County’s YMCA recently welcomed Tara Kuhmichel as the Early Learning Childcare director. In July, the YMCA took over where Stepping Stones Day Care left off. After the day care program was closed, most of the Stepping Stones staff made the switch to the YMCA’s Early Learning Childcare program.

The childcare program was a first for the YMCA, but Executive Director Erica Miller saw the community need and worked quickly to fill in the gap. Now the early learning center has a new director and is continuing to grow the program it so quickly took on.
