PLYMOUTH â Michelle Bougher wants area residents wishing to get into shape to come to attention.
Bougher is offering a fitness âboot campâ in a very unique setting. The four week program is for those who are willing to jump in boots first.
âItâs a little different than just going to the gym,â said Bougher of the program. âThis is for people who want to make a little more commitment to the program. Itâs not just the workouts but also nutrition and a full healthy lifestyle.â
BREMEN â The towns of Bremen and Argos recently cast the only "no" votes as members of Indiana Municipal Power Agency against participation in a proposed energy reduction program.
Tim Montague, Bremen electric department superintendent, told the Bremen Town Council this week that his dissenting vote, and the one from Argos, were outnumbered, meaning participation will be required. Bremen, Montague said, could be paying as much as 4.1 percent more for its electricity in 2011.
PLYMOUTH â You couldnât blame Autumn Leed if she thought she was living in a Hollywood screenplay.
Searching for a new act to sign to his management company, Tony Priano of IT management found himself in a local factory, looking for a voice that he had heard eight years earlier.
âHe came to the factory I worked at looking for âsomebody who can sing named Amber or something,ââ said Autumn. âSomebody said, âWe have an Autumn who singsâ â and that was when everything chan-ged.â

LAKEVILLE âÂ As teams enter the last third of the regular season, several are preparing for sectional rivalry games.
LaVille and Triton are both sitting at 1-5 on the year, and both are still looking for their first Northern State Conference win. Add to that the fact that both are in the Class A, Sectional 33 field and the stakes are high Friday at LaVille.
BREMEN â Dealing with the pressure of the state tournament is hard enough, but there was something even bigger looming in the minds of Bremen players Wednesday.
With head coach Andrew Rohde in Florida taking care of his mother after she underwent unexpected brain surgery to remove a tumor, the young Lions had to buckle down and focus on the task at hand in their Bremen Boys Tennis Sectional opener with LaVille. They did just that, beating the Lancers 4-1 in a repeat of an earlier Northern State Conference match to advance to play Triton today.
