COUNCILMAN’S CORNER: THE RECENT STORM

Details MITCH HARPER

Folks across the city are dealing with the aftermath of the recent storm, the power outages and the record-setting heat wave that followed. The aftermath for many has included disposing of cutting up downed trees and tree limbs, discarding spoiled food, and, like Dawn and me, getting a tarp on the roof and receiving the report from the claims adjuster.

It has meant counting our blessings in terms of neighbors, family and friends who helped others clean up, stay protected, and lessen the...

MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR: THE JUNE 29TH STORM

Details MAYOR TOM HENRY

The damaged caused by the June 29th storm will take us several months to cleanup and repair. The storm not only caused power to go out for more than 70,000 Fort Wayne residents, it destroyed cars and damaged many buildings and homes throughout the City.

After assessing the initial damage, I asked our County Commissioners to declare a State of Emergency for our area, as one of the first steps towards seeking federal assistance.

If you had storm damage to your property, please take the time to...

VOICE OF THE TOWNSHIP: IF YOU GET KNOCKED DOWN, GET UP

Details Richard A. Stevenson, Sr.

I hope by the time you're reading this that our Township will have received some rain. Even though I enjoy the warm and sunny weather, the drought with our dried up grass, withering gardens and burn bans has gone on way too long.

I have always emphasized the importance of helping our clients obtain employment. Our mantra since I have been in office has been "assistance to...

Details SENATOR DAVID LONG

Many laws passed during the 2012 state legislature are slated to take effect July 1.

But of all the new laws passed, those aimed at helping more Hoosier students graduate college may hold the most promise for our state.

According to Help Wanted, a report by the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce, by 2018 55 percent of jobs in Indiana will...

VOICE OF THE TOWNSHIP: SUMMER

Details RICHARD A. STEVENSON

Summer is really in full swing now. School is out, Germanfest is over and we are heading very quickly toward the Fourth of July and then the Three Rivers Festival. As we do every year, we opened our summer event season at the Wayne Township Trustee's Office by participating in the Waynedale Memorial Day Parade.

And, what a great Parade we had! My staff and I always enjoy participating in the Waynedale Memorial Day Parade and meeting all the wonderful residents of Waynedale. I must commend The...
