A wise outdoor event planner once said: “The thing you have no control over, is the thing that can make or break everything,” she said, referring to the weather. The hardworking folks of the Heritage of Flight Festival Committee maintained a positive attitude throughout the cold, windy weekend, shrugging off the chill and disgusting frozen precipitation by saying they made the best of it.

Thankfully, Friday’s doom-and-gloom weather let up just enough for the evening’s Cruise-In Car Show to draw a crowd, but attendance numbers seemed lower than in years-past. Unfortunately, the weather returned in full-force Saturday morning despite a forecast that promised cold, yet sunny skies.

The skies were anything but sunny Saturday morning as a thick wave of frozen precipitation the meteorologists call Graupel fell on the area, combined with sleet, snow, and rain, making for a messy mixture. As if that weren’t bad enough, the accompanying winds quickly arrived, blowing vendors’ tents up and down Main Street in erratic fashion, and knocking their precious wares into the street.

The high winds also prevented the festival’s signature elements from appearing in the parade, as pilots feared the gusts would either flip over the airplanes or knock their wings into the street light poles along Main Street, as they only had a few inches of clearance on either side.

Festival organizers pushed through Saturday night’s wind and drizzle to finally bring fireworks to downtown New Carlisle, resulting in what everyone agreed was a fantastic show.

Miami County Engineer Paul Huelskamp expects this winter to be anything but easy, thanks to the shortage of road salt.

That doesn’t mean, though, that he’s in a panic.

Huelskamp last week explained the salt availability for the county and the townships that it usually supplies in a discussion with county commissioners.

Word of the shortage follows last year’s harsh winter during which salt use was high.

City Seeks To Increase “Earned” Income Tax PDF Print E-mail

2014 Budgeted Police ExpensesThe voters of New Carlisle are being asked to support an “earned income tax” for the purpose of supporting only the expenses for police and streets. City Manager Kim Jones explained to the New Carlisle News that the .50% earned income tax would bring $500,000 per year into the city funds. This is a 5 year levy that would begin to be collected from paychecks on January 1, 2015.

We asked Ms. Jones why the city elected to place an earned income tax on the ballot rather than a property tax for the purpose of funding law enforcement and streets. She explained that when the city council was in discussions about what type of levy was needed and the amount of income it would produce, a group of local citizens came to the council and asked for some relief for those on a yearly income that is from pensions, disability or other sources that is unlikely to increase. They expressed a need to protect their monthly expenses which would increase if a property tax were levied.

By Sarah Anne Carter

In the running world, it is quite an accomplishment to finish any race, especially a marathon.

Many people train for personal reasons, but two locals trained to help others and support worthy causes for the Air Force Marathon races last weekend. There is a 5K, 10K, half and full marathon.

DiAnn Stephens, a New Carlisle resident for five years, ran in the 5K and 10K this year.

“I walked with a guy who was doing his first 5K,” Stephens said of the first race. “He is over 300 lbs and he completed it. I’m very proud of him.”

For the 10K, Stephens completed it in about an hour and ran that in support of a group who helps families who have lost loved ones to PTSD called 22 Too Many in reference to the statistic that about 22 veterans
