The fourth annual Lake Maxinkuckee Film Festival, âA Gift of Warmth,â will feature a grand assortment of âfabulous â50sâ films, kicking off with a gala sponsorsâ evening Friday, September 2. As mentioned in last weekâs edition of this newspaper, this yearâs sponsorâs evening will have a âtwistâ: six film shorts created and produced by students in Purdue Universityâs Film and Video Studies department. Each short, says festival committee chairman Gary Shaffer, is five to eight minutes long, and students act in, direct, and produced the films.
PLYMOUTH âÂ The young Rockies did some growing up Friday night.
After failing to convert on a pair of fourth-down conversions from the Rochester 2-yard line in the gameâs opening 13 minutes and giving up a pair of big play touchdowns in the second and third frames, Plymouth found itself down 13-0 early in the second half.
But the Rockies finished five of their next six drives and surrendered just one more Rochester score to claim a 34-20 come-from-behind win over the visiting Zebras at The Rockpile.
BOURBON âÂ Triton football head coach Rodney Younis felt his teamâs offensive rhythm start to slip with a pair of late first-half interceptions Friday.
The second half turned into an all-out free fall on both sides of the ball.
Trailing by six at halftime, visiting Northfield held Triton to just 41 yards of total offense after the intermission and scored during four of its five second-half possessions to pull away from the Trojans, 43-20.
WALKERTON â An opportunity to end over two decades of frustration was there for the taking Friday for the John Glenn High football team.
Unfortunately, Brody Olson stepped in to add to the Falconsâ misery.
Olsonâs grab of a tipped pass good for 30 yards midway through the fourth quarter, helped Jimtown on its way to the winning touchdown and a thrilling 14-13 victory over Glenn in Northern State Conference action at Falcon Field.
NAPPANEE â According to the statistics, CMA should have won the game against the NorthWood Panthers Friday night, as the Eagles outgained NorthWood 295 yards to 229 and had 15 first downs to the Panthersâ nine, but five CMA turnovers were the difference as the Panthers downed CMA 27-18 at Andrews Field in Nappanee.
LAKEVILLE âÂ The Union-North United School Corporation will be seeking a new superintendent within the next few weeks to replace the current superintendent, Dr. Terry Barker.
Although the official announcement by the School City of Mishawaka has not been released, Barker began the task of informing Union-North School board members Friday afternoon that he is heading to the Mishawaka top leadership job.
He also met with the administration teams of the LaVille Schools after the students were released Friday.
Dr. Barker came to the LaVille Schools in July of 2009.
ARGOS â The driver of a semi truck died Friday after going off the road into an embankment on US 31 south of S.R. 10, according to Marshall County coroner Bill Clevenger.
Clevenger is currently investigating the cause of death and the 61-year-old driver's name is being withheld pending notification of family members.
The truck ran off the road around 11 a.m. Argos Police responded to the crash with additional assistance from Marshall County Police.
PLYMOUTH â Sometimes youâre just overmatched.
Such was the case for Culver Thursday as it suffered a lopsided 25-8, 25-5, 25-15 loss against a bigger, stronger Plymouth squad on the Lady Pilgrimsâ home floor at The Rock.
âPlymouthâs a good team,â said Culver head volleyball coach Amanda Minix. âWeâve had some pretty light teams here in the first part of the year, and I told them coming into night âThey play hard, they serve hard, they can place serve it,â and we just kind of fell apart.â
Compared to the next three miles she has to travel, getting to South Korea was a breeze for Plymouth native Morgan Uceny.
Because the next three miles â to be run one at a time â are for all the marbles.
Uceny, a 2003 Plymouth High School graduate, begins her quest to win a gold medal in the womenâs 1500-meter run Saturday when preliminary heats kick off the IAAF World Track & Field Championships in Daegu, Korea.
Is she nervous? You betcha.
But is she ready? Oh, yeah.
