PLYMOUTH â A home scheduled to be demolished is providing a unique opportunity for area firefighters.
The Marshall County Health Department condemned a home at 4170 Lilac Road near Plymouth, according to Jerry Fussell of the Health Department, and rather than just tear it down, itâs been offered to the LaPaz Fire Department to use for training.
â(The house) is in a decaying state,â explained Fussell. âWe cannot contact the owner anymore; we have no way to get in contact with them.â
The Culver community gathered Thursday night at a standing-room-only Wesley United Methodist Church on School Street, where an ecumenical, community-wide prayer vigil was held to help students and parents work through their grief.
The vigil was in response to the shooting death on Madison Street of two Culver residents, 44 year-old Michael Price and 16 year-old Stephen Suthard, Wednesday night in an incident still under police investigation.
HAMLET â Anyone who missed the first quarter at Oregon-Davis Thursday missed the girls basketball game itself.

BREMEN â This year Bremenâs swim teams have shifted their focus a bit in practice.
The Lions are sweating some of the finer details, and the change has already done them some good.

âWeâre focusing more on intensity and endurance this year and a lot more on technique work, and I think itâs paid off for some of them already,â said Bremen head swim coach Meredith Eakins.
Lady Pilgrims stay perfect
The Lady Pilgrims scored with 51 percent efficiency at a 23-of-45 floor clip while holding Tippy Valley to 36 percent from the field, and Plymouthâs girls basketball team remained unbeaten with a 63-44 win on the road in Akron Thursday.
Amber Redinger tallied a team-high 18 points, while Hunter Stevens finished with 15 points and nine rebounds, Haley Harrell scored 11 points with five assists and four steals in an all-around strong outing, and Lauren Tanner finished with 10 points for the balanced Pilgrims.
