Help for autism

January 10, 2011

PLYMOUTH — This past week, a story debunking the work of a prominent medical researcher, Andrew Wakefield, who claimed that childhood vaccinations caused autism, made the rounds.
In 1988, a publication, The Lancet, a medical journal, claimed that Wakefield and his colleagues had linked measles-mumps-rubella vaccine with autism in most of a dozen children they had studied.
Mika Adams, Zionsville, an autism consultant, is the daughter of Plymouth’s Willie Resler.
Adams said numerous studies have shown that there is no correlation between the vaccines and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Like your iTunes? Thank a Plymouth grad

January 10, 2011

NASHVILLE — You could really call 1981 Plymouth High School graduate Joe McKesson a renaissance man.
A self admitted “computer nerd,” he is also an extremely talented singer and performer with a love and skill for opera, singing for opera companies all over the United States. With his background in music and technology, it was kind of a natural fit for him to be involved when iTunes was just an idea on a drawing board.
