Looking Back – July 24


A proposed drug treatment center, Bethesda House, in downtown Columbus was denied rezoning for the second time in two years.


Columbus measured 7.25 inches of rain in July, more than April, May and June combined, and was on course to break the record set 108 years prior for rainfall for the month.


Columbus Grange presented 14 new benches painted with advertising for local businesses to Bartholomew County Fair Board for use at the 4-H Fair.
