June 14, 2011

BOURBON — It was to be the first day of school Aug. 18, 2009 for Triton freshman Jacob Berger.

Their goal was simple — spruce up the school. As the sun grew hotter, the group spilt up to cover two different areas: landscaping in the front of the building, and renovating the playground in the back.
“It already looks so much better,” said mom Monica Best, waving her hand at the see-saws that were being painted bright blue — a big improvement from their earlier chipped state.

Former mayor passes away

June 13, 2011

PLYMOUTH — Former Plymouth Mayor James E. Yeazel, 83, died suddenly after experiencing a heart attack at his home Saturday evening.

Yeazel served as the mayor of Plymouth from 2000 to 2003. Within only a few months of finishing his term as mayor, health concerns forced him to resign. His wife Bonnie was appointed in September of 2003 to complete the term that ended on December 31.
