Plymouth’s Langdon says thanks to the voters

October 22, 2010

LOS ANGELES — Plymouth’s Tyler Langdon is glad that things are getting back to normal — at least as “normal” as an actor’s life can be.
“It’s been the most stressful two weeks of my life,” he said with a laugh. “Every free moment has been filled with being on Facebook, emailing, reminding people to vote for me. Now I have to catch up with all the things I didn’t do. I’m sure I have about a billion e-mails to catch up on.”
Langdon was one of the finalists for the Hollywood Discovery Award — part of the Hollywood Movie Award portion of the Hollywood Film Festival’s week of activities.

Glenn marches to semi-state

October 22, 2010

WALKERTON — John Glenn’s marching band is no stranger to success.
Trips to the state finals in class D of the ISSMA state tournament in 1999, 2000 and 2006 had set the stage, but after moving up to class C the band had to adjust to the competition with bigger schools. This year’s band has reaped the benefit of that tradition, making it through the regional competition and on to the semi-state at Plainfield.

Rockies moving on vs. Washington

October 21, 2010

PLYMOUTH — It’s over. That’s about all that Plymouth’s Rockies want to remember about last week, with the opening round of the playoffs looming.
“You can sum it up and just say it was frustrating,” said Plymouth coach John Barron of last week’s season ending loss to NorthWood by a 7-3 score. “It was frustrating to our kids, frustrating to our staff and I think frustrating to our fans. You shouldn’t lose a game where you only give up seven points.  But that’s a long time ago now. We’ve stopped talking about it, stopped thinking about it and gone back to work.”
