MAYOR GRAHAM RICHARD

The most horrific result of the terrorist attacks, after the loss of lives, is that safety is now a constant question for all Americans. I have heard many compare recent events with the events that brought America into World War II. Then, there were a lot of discussions about where Fort Wayne fell on our enemy's list of American cities to attack. The unease of America has brought similar discussions back into our daily conversations.

It is important to keep in mind that circumstances are...

COUNCILMAN’S CORNER

Details Tom Hayhurst

Much has happened since I last wrote this column. We are all aware of the tragic events of Tuesday, September 11, 2001. I agree with our national leaders that the terrorist attacks in NYC and Washington were as much an attack of our way of life and our national security as the attack on Pearl Harbor was 60 years ago. Our lives are likely to be changed in many ways, just as the lives of everyone in the USA were changed after Pearl Harbor. I appreciate the bipartisan effort of the President and...

FROM THE DESK OF SENATOR DAVID LONG

Details Sen. David Long

At the risk of sounding like a partisan Republican, let me say how proud I am of the job that President George W. Bush has done in the wake of an unprecedented two weeks in American history.

THE VOICE OF THE TOWNSHIP

Details Matthew Schomburg

We all have felt the tragedy of the September 11th attack on America, some to a greater degree than others, but nonetheless, all of our lives have been altered. I'm proud to be a part of this community, whose leaders and citizens have responded calmly, with a generous and truly patriotic spirit. I'm equally proud of my staff, as they maintained themselves to the highest degree of professionalism amidst this strange and frightening time.

Just three days after the attack, I had the privilege of...

MAYOR GRAHAM RICHARD

Details MAYOR GRAHAM RICHARD

It was one of the major goals announced during my first State of the City Address and it remains a top priority of my administration: the redevelopment of the Southtown Mall property. It is clear that the property's current owner, Haywood Whichard, is not interested in the mall's long-term future. That is why I am asking the Fort Wayne Redevelopment Commission to draft an urban Renewal Plan for Southtown Mall.

Mr. Whichard, who owns shopping malls across the country, has characterized himself...

THE VOICE OF THE TOWNSHIP

Details

Wayne Township of Allen County is one of our States largest Townships in terms of residents. We are now third largest in terms of Township Assistance due to our struggling local economy. Over the last four years we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of requests for Township Assistance. Over 12,000 families in need requested our services this past year and we were heart struck by their pain and suffering.

Township Trustee's pride themselves in being one branch of government that is...
