COLUMBIA CITY â€” Change is on the way for the northeast side of Columbia City.
Crews began work on the Ind. 205 project this week; a project with a $3.14 million pricetag that should improve safety and traffic to and from the park.
Clearing of the area began this week and an erosion control silt fence has been placed this week.
At the completion of the project, the entrance to Morsches Park will be moved north to be directly across from Towerview Drive (the entrance to the Blue River Industrial Park).
CHURUBUSCO Ââ€” Plans to install a new lift station were approved by the Churubusco Town Council in efforts to relieve the Sunny Slope subdivision of standing water caused by rain and melting snow.
The council accepted the bid from Ironclad excavating from Roanoke, Ind. of $53,000 to install the new main.
Line Street and Windsor Drive are currently on the same line, according to Town Supervisor Jeremy Hart. When the new line is in place and Windsor Drive is on its own line, the situation should be greatly improved.

INDIANAPOLIS â€” The Columbia City High School Eaglesâ€™ boysâ€™ volleyball team traveled to Indianapolis for its season-opening tournament at Bishop Chatard High School, recording a 1-3 record for the tournament.
The squad, consisting of three seniors, one junior and the rest sophomores, opened pool play against Fishers, a new team in the IBVCA membership.
The Eagles struggled to put together points until the end of the first game, when they rallied from a 21-16 deficit to win the first game, 26-24.
SOUTH WHITLEYâ€” Baseball is the American pastime and basic fundamentals are still at its core. If a team can hit the ball and play good defense it can win a lot of games. The 2015 Whitko Wildcats baseball team fits perfectly into that mold. Whitko will be strong at the plate, defensively very sound and if the â€˜Cats can find some more pitching they just might be a threat come sectional time.
