ARGOS â€” Argosâ€™ scoring ability was a question mark at the start of the season.

Jami Patterson opened the scoring on an assist from Shelby Sanders at the 10-minute mark, and Stefany Parrish, Katie Williams and Sammie Hopkins each scored unassisted goals to put the host up 4-0 at the half.

PLYMOUTH â€” Last year when Plymouthâ€™s young tennis lineup stepped on the court for their season opener at Kokomo, the Pilgrims showed their inexperience.
It took them awhile to come into their own, but with four players back from that Northern Lakes Conference championship squad, this yearâ€™s team showed no such jitters at Mondayâ€™s opener at home, and Joe Knapp and Matt Flynn earned a big, three-set victory at 2 doubles to put Plymouth over the top for a 3-2 season-opening win over the Wildkats at Centennial Park.

PLYMOUTH â€” The one-to-one computer program at Plymouthâ€™s Lincoln Junior High had a successful beginning a year ago, and along with all the lessons it taught it also pointed out something to administrators.
INDIANAPOLIS â€” What most eyewitnesses remember how is quickly the storm arrived.
It was Saturday just before 9 p.m., and a crowd of thousands was happily waiting for Sugarland to take the stage at the Hoosier Lottery Grandstands at the Indiana State Fair. Sara Bareilles, the opening act, had just finished and the main event, country music duo Sugarland, was set to take the stage at any moment. Although an official had made a brief announcement that they show may be interrupted by severe weather, attendees didnâ€™t seem very concerned.
PLYMOUTH â€” Area teams shook of some of the rust while giving fans a preview of their 2011 talent at the Plymouth Girls Soccer Jamboree Saturday.
New faces joined some old ones as Plymouth, Argos and Bremen each played each other in three 20-minute IHSAA-sanctioned scrimmages at the Kindt Soccerplex.
One face that is both new and old is Plymouth Head Girls Soccer Coach Chuck DeWitt.
DeWitt takes over as the third girls soccer coach in as many years, but Rockies fans may recognize him as the former head coach of Plymouthâ€™s boys team where he held the reins for 10 years until 2004.
KNOX â€” The State Board of Accounts (SBOA) is questioning the Starke County Commissionersâ€™ decision to remove Linda Belork, an elected official, from her position as Starke County Treasurer, according to an article published by the Associated Press. The article says the SBOA wants commissioners to explain what authority they used to remove Belork from her position.
â€śDeputy State Examiner Paul Joyce told The Associated Press while there are processes to remove elected officials from office, he's not sure commissioners used the proper one when they voted Thursday to remove Belork.â€ť
Historical groups and a local Eagle Scout candidate are hoping the community will step up to honor a local Potawatomi Indian chief who left his mark not only on the Culver-Lake Maxinkuckee area, but in the state of Kansas as well.
PLYMOUTH â€” Stone Creek Homes, based in Nebraska, recently opened on Markley Drive in the former Shamrock Homes production plant.
Shamrock Homes went out of business in spring, but thanks to owner Pat Flynn's mentorship to a young man in the 70s, the plant is seeing activity again.
Dave Ferguson, co-owner of Stone Creek Homes and a 1970 Plymouth grad, remembers working with the Flynn family during his breaks from school in the 70s. It was Flynn that first offered Ferguson the chance to get into the industry.
