Senter names top priorities for reelection
PLYMOUTH â€” Incumbent mayoral candidate Mark Senter released the following main topics for reelection.
Members of Culver Community Schoolsâ€™ board of trustees received an update on the iPad program for Middle and High School students at their Monday night meeting. In May, the trustees approved a contract with Apple for $150,000 to supply each student grades 7 through 12 with an iPad for use as a supplemental teaching tool. Albert Hanselman, administrator, introduced Cameron Turney to give the board members her unbiased opinion of the iPad.
BREMEN â€” This yearâ€™s Northern State Conference race was a fight to the finish.
The NSC tennis title boiled down to the last match of the tournament as Triton 2 doubles tandem Wil Rettinger and Jackson Downing handed Knoxâ€™s Joe Clabaugh and Cody Fletcher a split set, 6-2, 6-7(3), 6-2 defeat under the lights at DeSantis Courts in Bremen.
With a possible three-way tie hanging in the balance, the 2 doubles win clinched Triton a second-place finish at the tourney behind meet champion Bremen, good enough to cement the Trojans their first-ever Northern State Conference tennis title outright.

PLYMOUTH â€” The annual Jefferson Jackson Democratic Dinner held Sunday night featured three speakers.
Speaking at the event were Brendan Mullen, 2nd Congressional District Democratic Candidate for U.S. House of Representatives; Nancy Dembowski, currently serving in the Indiana State House of Representatives; and Pete Buttigieg, Democratic candidate for Mayor of South Bend.
Mullen said, â€śWhat is needed is family, fellowship, hard work and service.â€ť
PLYMOUTH â€” Chilly weather complete with a downpour of rain on Saturday didnâ€™t keep 60 motorcycle riders from participating in the 4th Annual Ride for â€śShop with a Cop-Christmas for Kids.â€ť
The ride started at Young Amphitheatre in Plymouth and took riders to Rochester, Bass Lake and then back to the American Legion hall in Plymouth. Following the ride, a meal and auction were held as well.
One of the organizers, Jeff Stewart said, â€śWe canâ€™t thank the community enough for their support in monetary and gift donations.â€ť
Culver resident Jean Triplet may represent the last local link to the bygone days of small-town pharmacies, so well remembered by many here. After 49 years in the business, Triplet has retired from CVS Pharmacy in Culver, though her earliest years behind the drug-store counter were at beloved local pharmacy Mr. T's.
KENDALLVILLE â€” A trio of area golfers finished out their seasons as the weather nearly derailed the East Noble Girls Golf Regional Saturday.
Plymouthâ€™s Emily Berger shot a 98, while Tritonâ€™s Sydney Gochenour carded a 97, and Culver Girls Academyâ€™s Mackenzie Toth shot a 99 in the persistent drizzle at Noble Hawk.
Led by Heidi Morganthalerâ€™s round of 78, NorthWood found itself in contention to advance with a 368 as lightning delayed the regional tilt for several hours, and darkness eventually forced the suspension of play with several teams set to resume their rounds today.
PLYMOUTH â€” A penalty kick on a controversial call left Plymouth down two goals and chasing visiting Northridge, and the Rockies lost an eventual 5-1 Northern Lakes Conference decision to the Raiders at Kindt Soccerplex Saturday.
Plymouth went into the half trailing 1-0 after Steven Hooley scored on a Cameron Miller assist in the gameâ€™s 15th minute, but it was Millerâ€™s pk in the 43rd minute that put Plymouth into press mode, and Northridge capitalized with two more goals during an eight-minute span between the gameâ€™s 50th and 58th minutes to put the game out of reach.
