PLYMOUTH â€” The Downtown Revitalization board started to discuss new ideas for the Plymouth downtown area at their Aug. 6 meeting.
Committee member Dan Tyree suggested that the council begin to focus on housing in the downtown area, as well as providing incentives for businesses and investors to take a look at the downtown Plymouth area.
Having once consulted with Valparaiso, the council discussed the idea of bring one to two more restaurants into the downtown area. Valparaiso had great success with their restaurant expansion, according to Tyree.
MARSHALL COUNTY â€” The Marshall County Sheriff's office has identified the top ten most accident-prone roads, and US HIghways appear most frequently on the list.
In terms of personal injury accidents, US 31 and State Road 10 in Argos top the list at 12, while property damage accidents only rate at six.
The highest amount of property damage accidents goes to US 30 and North Oak Drive at 16.
A complete list is provided in this news story in the print and e-editions of the Pilot News.
MARSHALL COUNTY â€” Marshall County residents are asked to watch for two teenagers who escaped from a detention center in the southern part of the state and may have returned to the Plymouth area.
Kody Whiteman and Adam Waggoner escaped during the early morning hours of Aug. 3.
Police say a short time later that same evening a report of a stolen vehicle was reported. On Aug. 5, that vehicle was located in the West Township of Marshall County.
Wakarusa's monthly town council meeting attracted a crowd of interested residents who expressed their opinions on many items. Details in the Aug. 14 Advance News
BREMEN â€“ In 1912, J Huff erected a building which still bears his name way atop the frontpiece facing Bremen's main street.
The building has obviously served the town well, most recently as the headquarters of the venerable Quinn realty operation.
But even Mr. Huff could not have imagined, more than 100 years after he opened for business, a new bookstore would occupy his building, a few doors down from the famous Wooden Peel.
Yet it has.
Michella Smith owns and operates â€śInspired.â€ť
To simply call it a bookstore is an insult.
This is the proposed agenda for the Marshall County Council meeting to be held on August 11, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. at the Marshall County building.
