PLYMOUTH â Geraldine M. âGerryâ Hoeffler, 83, 16492 Pretty View Drive, Plymouth, passed away Wednesday afternoon in the Our Lady of Peace Hospital, Mishawaka.Â
Her death came unexpected to her family who has long witnessed her battle of multiple illnesses with courage and dignity while never uttering a word of complaint.
Nov. 3, 1941 âÂ Sept. 23, 2010
ARGOS âÂ Delbert G. Hall, age 68, of 18465 Michigan Road, Argos, IN, 46501, passed away at 3:39 a.m., Thursday, Sept. 23, 2010, at SaintÂ Joseph Regional MedicalÂ Center in Mishawaka.Â
Nov. 10, 1925 â Sept. 23, 2010
BREMEN â Herman Booker, 84, of Bremen, passed away Thursday, Sept. 23, 2010 at his home in Bremen.Â Â
He was born Nov. 10, 1925 in Marshall County to Delma E. & Rosetta (Ervin) Booker.Â June 27, 1953 he married Joyce Beane; she survives.Â He and his wife lived in their same Bremen home for their entire married lives.
LAKEVILLE â A voice blared from the Bremen sideline in the second quarter.
âBraxston, put your head down and make them pay!â
On his next carry, Bremen running back Braxston Miller lowered his head and punished two LaVille defenders.
âBraxston,â the same voice shouted, âthatâs the way to run the football!â
And pretty much the way the entire Lions squad, which scored during its first eight possessions, bowled over LaVille in a 54-13 Northern State Conference road win at Lancer Field Friday.
BOURBON â When trying to beat a team youâve lost to 12 straight times by an average of 33 points, mistakes must be minimal.
Unfortunately for Triton, errors which have plagued the Trojans this season occurred with disappointing frequency Friday night.
Four turnovers and untimely penalties nixed Tritonâs bid to beat New Prairie for the first time since 1997, as the Trojans were handed a 13-6 homecoming defeat.
âWe played hard, but it was the same old story, unfortunately,â Triton coach Rodney Younis said. âTurnovers. We have got to eliminate the turnovers.â
Culverâs program-record winning streak came to an end Friday as Knox put up a pair of touchdowns in the fourth quarter to break a 14-all halftime tie and grab a 28-14 Northern State Conference home win over the Class A, sixth-ranked Cavaliers.
The Cavs had trouble limiting the big play as two of Knoxâs scores came on a 46-yard pass and a 46-yard run.
CULVER â The Eagles ended John Glennâs shutout streak, but it was too little, too late as the Falcons claimed a 49-12 victory at Culver Academies Friday.
Glenn scored two touchdowns in all but the fourth quarter, and the Falcons defensive unit held CMA to just 45 total net offensive yards in the first half, shutting out the home team for three quarters â its sixth such performance in six games this year âÂ before a Juwan Brescacin touchdown catch and a Pierre Byrne 5-yard run in the fourth quarter concluded a streak of 15 scoreless quarters by Glenn opponents.
PLYMOUTH â Itâs been a while â two years to be exact.
Wawaseeâs Warriors put an end to a remarkable streak for Plymouthâs Rockies Friday night with a 27-17 win at Plymouth. The last team to beat Plymouth in a regular-season game was NorthWood in the final game of the 2007 season. The last time the Rockies lost at home was to Rochester, in the second game of that same season.
It appeared that maybe the Rockies would be on their way to a third straight thrilling come-from-behind win, with Brock Smith playing Superman, but it was not to be.
LAKEVILLE â During a meeting last night, the Union-North School Board approved the awarding of bids for the LaVille Elementary School project.
Bonds for the $4.2 million project will be offered for sale today.
Superintendent Terry Bar-ker made the recommendation to hold the project at the $4.2 million cost, but did indicate that there were other improvements that could have been made within the project.
