Trojans trounce Cavs 69-49

January 17, 2011

BOURBON — Triton’s 5-3 start to the season was anything but overwhelming, especially considering the level of expectations placed on the Class A third-ranked three-peat sectional champs.
The good news for the Trojans is they seem to be regaining some of their former swagger. And that was bad news Saturday night for Culver.

Lancers try to unseat 4-peat champ Cats as Girls Bi-County opens Tuesday

January 17, 2011

The past few Bi-County Tournaments have seemed like something of a foregone conclusion, with Oregon-Davis topping the pile four straight years. With four-time tourney MVP Gabbi Minix and the rest of that dynasty long gone, however, this year’s 34th annual girls tilt could be the end of an era.

Super sub Kopetski powers Lancers past Knox

January 17, 2011

LAKEVILLE — Four games ago, LaVille opted to convert senior Kaitlyn Kopetski into a super sub.
Four consecutive wins later, the move looks like a stroke of genius.
In the latest installment Kopetski, a 5-foot-11 forward, hit 11 of 13 from the charity stripe en route to a season-high 21 points, pulled in nine rebounds, and handed out three assists to power the Lancers to a 53-46 Northern State Conference girls basketball win over visiting Knox at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium Saturday.

They set the standard at work & at home

January 17, 2011

PLYMOUTH — The list of accomplished Plymouth alums is a long one. Don and Evelyn Heim, members of the class of 1958 could likely take accolades for two different careers.
Both had acclaimed careers in the aerospace industry, and even with the high pressure demands of their jobs also raised three daughters. For the era in which they achieved both, they were a non-traditional family indeed.

Giving tickets made quicker

January 17, 2011

BOURBON — Police officers from the Bourbon and Plymouth Departments will soon be using the Indiana Supreme Court’s electronic Citation and Warning System (eCWS).
Instead of writing tickets, officers use a hand-held scanner to read bar codes on a drivers’ license and registration. The information on the license and/or registration is automatically entered on the ticket form.

Culp promoted to Det./Lt.

January 17, 2011

PLYMOUTH — The Marshall County Sheriff’s Department has a familiar face as a new Detective Lieutenant.

The process is an exhaustive one that began under outgoing Sheriff Jon VanVactor and concluded shortly after new Sheriff Tom Chamberlin began his duties.
