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.

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
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
As I stroll onto my front porch each morning to tend to my hanging baskets and other flower containers, I look across Thieme Drive – named for Theodore F. Thieme – and to the St. Marys River. The river bank … Continue reading
Nope, I am not referring to the rock group, Barenaked Ladies. Or those groups of oldies but goodies who bare all for calendar sales. I am talking about average, everyday deciduous trees during the two seasons when they have shed … 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
Yes, the Three rivers Festival Parade will once again grace our fair neighborhood. The last time the parade wound its way through West Central was 2002. The next year was the Flood of 2003, and Thieme Drive, the route of … Continue reading
