About Me – Charlotte A. Weybright
I own an older home in the West Central historic district in Fort Wayne, Indiana, directly across from the St. Marys River. I have four grown sons and nine grandchildren - five granddaughters and four grandsons.
I enjoy working on my home and gardening, and I enjoy all types of crafts. I have my own library, now approaching 1,000 books. I am also a vegetarian and have been since 1990.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Indiana University and a Juris Doctorate from the Valparaiso University School of Law.
I enjoy the political scene with all of its passions and faults. Writing is one of my favorite activities, but it seems that I never have as much time as I would like to devote to the task.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.

River front development in Fort Wayne, for the most part, is a phantom dream, and we should accept this fact. Our City – and anyone who knows me understands that I love this City and where I live – sits … Continue reading
City Council couldn’t quite get its act together to make a decision that would have allowed a worthy and much-needed women’s shelter to begin construction. Amidst bickering and heated debate, the Council voted to delay its decision on whether or … Continue reading
The City doesn’t seem to want to quit messing up the banks of the St. Marys River. After the Flood of 2003, the City requested a Section 205 Study of the St. Marys River for the purpose of deciding where … Continue reading
Is the City moving forward on the out-of-sight, out-of-mind North River project? This past February, the City sent a request to Senator Richard Lugar’s office asking for $295,000 to fund a section 216 study to review the old Flood Control … Continue reading
Wednesday and part of yesterday was a bad day for the flood-fighting effort. The city had brought in one pump, but it had problems and wasn’t working properly. When I got home Wednesday night, the water around my home was … Continue reading
After going through three floods in a year and a half, I have become familiar with the ebb and flow of the river just across Thieme Drive from home. Yesterday was the the fourth time in four and a half … Continue reading
Quite some time ago, I wrote about Thieme Drive and the St. Marys River, both of which are within a few dozen feet of my front door. In July 2003, we experienced what was labeled a “100-year” flood event with … Continue reading
