In ground gas tanks that have laid dormant for years were removed from the ground at the old Clark Station on Jefferson Street in Plymouth, Tuesday. Work on the unused station has been ongoing this week. The station has been closed for several years. The removal of the tanks and other activity at the station had become somewhat of an attraction, said a man calling the Pilot News Tuesday afternoon. A number of people watched the progress of the job, as heavy equipment was called in to dig out the underground tanks.
MARSHALL COUNTY â€” The Argos Town Council has withheld adding fluoride to the town water. The decision was made some time ago based on recommendations of the Argos Water Works Operator in Charge. The Marshall County Board of Health touched base last week on the topic as board member Dr. Thomas Pedavoli expressed his disappointment with the Argos council last week.
â€śWe (council) decided the negatives outweighed the positives,â€ť said Town Council President George Noll.
It never gets any easier.

The meet begins today in Des Moines, Ia., and Uceny â€” the No. 1-ranked 1,500 runner in the world just a year ago â€” is struggling.
The simple fact is: She hasnâ€™t been running very fast, not by Uceny standards. And she hasnâ€™t been winning many races.
