BREMEN ‚ÄĒ The residents around Lake of the Woods will have a chance to sit down with the Marshall County Commissioners to here the county‚Äôs final decision about taxes to be assessed on private lake access areas around the lake.
Complaints about public access and placing of private piers in public right of way began a process by the county of looking into just who had ownership of the many area‚Äôs at the end of roadways to access Lake of the Woods.
PLYMOUTH ‚ÄĒ The Marshall County Commissioners have made an effort to put some ‚Äúspark‚ÄĚ in the countywide burn ban.
Abnormally dry conditions led to the disaster emergency declaration of a county wide ban on any open burning Oct. 6. With no real rain in sight conditions have continued to become more dangerous for the possibility of a disastrous fire caused by blowing of sparks from an open burn.
Three known field fires occurred over the weekend owing to open burning.

PLYMOUTH ‚ÄĒ Cancer is a disease that often leaves a footprint of fear and despair.
Saturday, a group of people and their canine companions left their own footprint (or pawprint) in a step towards hope in the battle against this insidious disease.
Saturday was the inaugural Bark For Life fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Held by the tennis courts at Centennial Park, the event not only raised $560 for the ongoing battle against cancer, but allowed family and friends alike the opportunity to acknowledge the loyal companionship and healing influence of man‚Äôs best friend.
PLYMOUTH ‚ÄĒ Don‚Äôt let the warm summer-like days fool you. Winter is coming and when it does, the weather forecasters predict a cold one.
Steve Keiser, chairman of the 12th annual Warm Up Marshall County Coat Drive, is a bit worried.
Actually, he is a lot worried.
‚ÄúWith the economy like it is, there are people, especially children, who will face the winter without the benefit of a warm coat.‚ÄĚ
Shivering children is what got Steve, the father of three, started on the project in the first place.
PLYMOUTH ‚ÄĒ The enrollment for the Plymouth Schools is up 34.72 students over last year.
The number reflects the way in which the state qualifies students as full-time, part-time, or half-time.
For instance, despite the fact that the kindergarten program in Plymouth is full-time, the state counts those enrolled as half-time in terms of reimbursement status.
