Eagle golf posts a 148

May 10, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — Columbia City’s golf team dropped to a whole new low Thursday night — and not the bad kind.

The Eagles were determined to even out their Northeast Hoosier Conference record, topping New Haven by an impressive 148-200 score — the lowest score Columbia City has posted this season — and in the last 10 years.

“That kind of score will get you anywhere,” Columbia City Head Coach Andrew Thompson said, alluding that a 148 could advance nearly any team to the state finals. “I think some people will see this score and start to notice us.

“That’s just tremendous golf.”

Col. City track falls to Huntington

May 10, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — Columbia City’s girls track team hosted, and fell, to Huntington North Thursday night.

The Lady Eagles dropped the meet 89-43, but Columbia City Head Coach Bob Fahl said there were several high-points on the night.

Carlee Hearld jumped a personal record, 5 feet, 6 inches, then went for the school record.

The current record, set by Indiana University graduate Ashley Rhoades approximately five years ago, is 5 feet, 7 inches.

Hearld attempted a leap of 5-7.5, but wasn’t able to clear the bar.

Several other tracksters had personal records Thursday.

Despite snags, ISTEP staying online

May 10, 2013

INDIANAPOLIS — Regardless of problems that caused students to be kicked offline and see frozen screens instead of their ISTEP tests, students shouldn’t expect to go back to No. 2 pencils and bubble sheets when taking standardized tests.

Online testing lets schools get results back weeks faster than with paper-and-pencil exams. That means teachers are able to see earlier what lessons students do and don’t understand and have more time to adjust their lessons.

DHAKA, Bangladesh (AP) — A seamstress buried in the wreckage of a collapsed garment factory building for 17 days was rescued Friday, a miraculous moment set against a scene of unimaginable horror, where the death toll shot past 1,000.

Reshma survived, in remarkably good shape, by eating dried food that was in her area and drinking spare amounts of water with her.

She was discovered on the second floor of the eight-story Rana Plaza building, where crews have been focused on recovering bodies, not rescuing survivors, for much of the past two weeks.
