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.

For the last several years I kept thinking I would take the helicopter ride that comes with the Three Rivers Festival, but I never got around to it. Boy, what was I thinking! Today, I finally made the time to … Continue reading

It is no secret that I oppose a flood wall on Thieme Drive. And, the neighborhood association also does not want a wall. So when I am called an obstructionist by a certain neighborhood resident who lives at the end … Continue reading
Fairmount Place has now become not only a site upon which a disputed structure was to be built but also the subject of how it landed in the hands of the Rescue Ministries. In today’s Journal-Gazette, Tracy Warner details the … Continue reading
