PLYMOUTH â Although many area yards had a crouton-like look and feel over the last six weeks, it has been a lucky summer for Marshall County and much of Northern Indiana.
Currently 54 Indiana counties were locked into active burn bans, while Marshall County entered fall without making the sizable list.
PLYMOUTH â It wasn't a win, but the Rockies refused to give up a loss on Senior Night.
NorthWood broke a 1-1 tie with a Trent Jacobs unassisted goal in the 77th minute resulting from some miscommunication in the Plymouth backfield, but the Rockies stayed composed, and Andrew Youst found the back of the net on a Francisco Jasso assist less than a minute later to force an eventual 2-2 Northern Lakes Conference tie at Kindt Field Tuesday.
PLYMOUTH â This week is a crucial week in Plymouth football.
âHopefully weâve learned that anybody can beat us,â said Plymouth Head Coach John Barron. âIf you donât make plays when youâre given opportunities youâre going to get beat.â
Wawasee made big plays when given the opportunity and put an end to a two-year regular season winning streak by the Rockies. The loss is a tough one, but the Rockies still control their own destiny in NLC play and have learned a few things in the process.
PLYMOUTH â A little enthusiasm can sometimes go a long way.
Plymouth showed that Tuesday as the Lady Pilgrims stayed up after a third-game loss to visiting John Glenn, rebounding quickly to put their guests down early in the fourth game and hold them off for a 25-12, 25-16, 23-25, 25-16 victory at The Rock.

PLYMOUTH âÂ Donald E. Jernstrom, 80, of 12661 Plymouth-Goshen Trail, Plymouth, passed away Saturday, Sept. 25, 2010, atÂ 5:31 p.m. at theÂ Elkhart Hospice House, Elkhart.

He drove a truck for Central Transfer, in Plymouth. He also was a Teamster driver for Redi Froz, in South Bend, retiring in 1985. He served in the Naval Reserve out of Great Lakes, Ill.
BREMEN â As the 44th Annual IHSAA Boys State Tennis Tournament gets under way around the state Wednesday, Plymouth is the heavy favorite at the Bremen Sectional.
With an unbroken string of 16 straight sectional championships it would be easy to take a 17th consecutive title as a foregone conclusion.
But thatâs not what the Pilgrims have in mind as they open play Thursday against John Glenn.
LAKEVILLE âÂ LaVille didn't come out intimidated, but once Knox got rolling, it was tough to stop.
The Class 3A, Indiana Coaches of Girls Sports Association (ICGSA) No. 8-ranked Lady Redskins overpowered the host Lady Lancers 25-14, 25-9, 25-7 in a Northern State Conference match at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium Monday.
PLYMOUTH â After a stormy process of putting it together, the 2011 budget for the city of Plymouth had a very quiet public hearing last night.
After a month of consternation over raises and paid holidays the Plymouth Common Council held its public hearing on the coming yearâs budget and if initial public reaction is any indication, the Council appears to have arrived at a budget thatâs at least acceptable to the public.
No one spoke for or against the budget when the floor was opened for public comment.
