PLYMOUTH â âTis the season for pens, notebooks, and glueâand not a small amount of stress for parents who need to provide new school supplies for their children.
âIâm not a good plannerâI usually buy what I can the last couple of weeks before school starts, even if it breaks the budget,â said Hesper Manns, Knox mom of Layne, 14, and Brenna, 10.
Manns is not aloneâthe list of needed supplies, especially for parents of multiple children, can seem overwhelming. To combat budget worries, Plymouth mom Amy Schuler plans on buying school supplies gradually instead of all at once.
PLYMOUTH â Even a 15-day strike hasn't slowed the project on Pioneer Drive.
Reporting to the Marshall County Commissioners DLZ project engineer Ron Wireman said that even dealing with a strike that shut down work for more than two weeks likely won't push the completion date for the road back any further than the second week of September. The contractors on the project will be allowed a 15-day extension for the days lost to the work stoppage which sets the official required completion date back to Oct. 17.
