THE VOICE OF THE TOWNSHIP

Details

Every year, the Indiana Township Association (ITA) organizes the Metro Conference, which provides educational workshops and opportunities for exchanging information. The ITA planning committee, which I was a member of, decided to move the conference around to various cities instead of always having them in Indianapolis. I'm pleased to announce that the Metro Conference (a 4-day event!) is going to be held in Fort Wayne next week during the Three Rivers Festival. I'm so proud to be able to...

One of Fort Wayne's most notable assets is our outstanding Parks and Recreation Department. We have 87 parks throughout Fort Wayne, and soon that number will increase. One of the larger and more widely used parks in the southwest quadrant of the city is Foster Park.

Fort Wayne is also enjoying an increase in the diversity of our community. We all reap the benefits of having a multi-cultural city, but many of our residents whose native tongue is not English face difficult challenges with...

FROM THE DESK OF SENATOR DAVID LONG

Details

I am writing this column on June 7th. As such, the material may appear dated by the time you read this column. If so, please forgive that transgression, but at least you know why it occurred.

I thought I would take a break from writing about the Special Session currently ongoing in Indianapolis. By the time the next column appears, I should be able to write about the outcome of the Session and its implications for all of us.

Instead, I thought I would weigh in on the Congressional...

On May 1, 2002, Greg Leatherman took over the leadership position at Neighborhood Code Enforcement. Leatherman replaced Gary Baeten who, after serving the City for so many years, retired. Leatherman has had some very big shoes to fill, but I am confident that he will provide Neighborhood Code Enforcement with the leadership they need to serve the residents of Fort Wayne.

One of the first things Leatherman did as he began his new position was to make changes in the WEED program. NCE implemented...
