MARSHALL COUNTY â€” Several Marshall County Schools have been considering moving to a balanced calendar for the 2015-2016 school year. Of those that are considering a move, Argos schools, Culver schools, Bremen schools, and Union North have chosen not to set gears in motion for a shift.

PLYMOUTH â€“ Morgan Uceny was looking for some blueberry donuts. Wasnâ€™t everybody?
But on her way to Centennial Park, Plymouthâ€™s native Olympian took a quick detour down Michigan Street.
It was so quick, in fact, that Uceny ended up winning Mondayâ€™s Blueberry Stomp 5,000-meter run.
Thousands of spectators, who were awaiting the start of the Blueberry Festival parade, did a double-take. Then they roared as Uceny â€“ a finalist in the womenâ€™s 1,500 meter run during the 2012 Olympics -- surged the last mile of the course.
