State Senator Randy Head (R-Logansport) paid a visit to Culver recently, updating members and guests of the Culver Kiwanis Club on the latest in the state legislature.
DUNLAP â In a game that saw plenty of offense, it will be two defensive plays that are the talk of the town this week as Plymouth came away with an essential road win over Northern Lakes Conference foe Concord 31-28 Friday night.
After Plymouth quarterback Ike Kastner plunged over from 6 yards out at the 7:49 mark in the fourth quarter for what would prove to be the winning touchdown, it would take two big time defensive plays to preserve that win.
BREMEN â With 15 straight championships, it' would be easy to start to start taking Plymouth's sectional ascendancy for granted.
But there was nothing preordained about the Pilgrims' title win Friday evening, as the host Lions gave them all they could handle before succumbing 4-1 in Plymouth's 16th-straight tennis sectional championship at DeSantis Courts.
LAKEVILLE âÂ Triton looked a bit like a defensive unit conducting an experiment as to whether hitting football carriers high or low yields better results.
Not surprisingly to anyone whoâs ever muddled through a physics course, low works best.
After hitting high and surrendering 147 total yards to LaVille in the first half, the Trojans regrouped and allowed just 35 yards and two first downs after the intermission en route to a 21-10 Northern State Conference win â Tritonâs first of the season âÂ at Lancer Field Friday.
BREMEN â It was Homecoming Night for the entire Bremen football team, but one senior in particular had a very special homecoming Friday night.
Tailback Reid Zellmer returned from a four-week hiatus recovering from a broken collarbone, and the 6-foot, 176-pound upperclassman rumbled for 269 yards and two touchdowns in 27 carries in a gutsy performance as Bremen held off Knox 21-14 at Don Bunge Field.
CULVER âÂ The Culver Military Academy defense came up big as it forced four turnovers in a battle against Class 2A Churubusco Friday night.
Busco came into the game undefeated at 6-0, but came up empty as the CMA Eagles defense held it to only two scores, a feat that Coach Andy Dorrel was very pleased with during his teamâs 35-16 victory.
NEW CARLISLE â Howâs that old football saying go? âThe battle is won in the trenches?â
John Glennâs defensive line has been pretty good in trench warfare this season. But New Prairieâs offensive line has been even better.
Thatâs a big reason why the turnaround Cougars are 6-1 under first-year coach Russ Radtke. And itâs the main reason why New Prairie whipped the Falcons, 41-14, Friday night at Amzie Miller field.
The Thursday morning fire that left Jason Oldham of Tippecanoe critically injured was caused by a malfunction in the home, according to Tippecanoe fire captain Mike Walters.
âWe did determine the cause, the source of the fire was from the utility room,â said Walters Friday. âIt wasnât criminal at all. It was a malfunction of something in the home.â
Walters, who lives nearby the Oldhamâs former home, said that he had heard from family members that Oldham was still in serious condition.
To stay or not to stay was the question of the hour at a Culver town council work session centering on the condiÂtion and fate of the town hall, among other topics.
"This building is falling apart," said town manager Dave Schoeff at the early September meeting. "I think we all know that. I wanted to hear from the council about how they feel and what direction we should go."
