PLYMOUTH â€” The city of Plymouth will be losing a law enforcement officer to retirement but there will be a new sheriff in town.

While Chamberlin will miss his duties in Plymouth he is looking forward to a new opportunity.
ARGOS â€” Imagine being 17 and having to take three insulin injections every day just to survive.
Now imagine being in third grade when you were diagnosed as a diabetic. Kala Williams of Argos Community Schools has a very special senior project. The week of Nov. 15-19 will be Diabetes Awareness Week at Argos Community Schools. During this week, the students will be able to get their blood sugar checked so they can be aware of their risks. If the current trend continues, one in three children will develop Diabetes.

BOURBON â€”Â Tritonâ€™s Shana Anderson broke through in a big way Friday.
The lanky sophomore erupted for 23 points, 11 rebounds, and seven steals â€”Â all game highs â€”Â to power the scrappy Trojans to a 48-43 season-opening girls basketball win over North Judson-San Pierre at The Trojan Trench.
â€śShanaâ€™s going to be a good player for us in the future and this year,â€ť Triton head coach Adam Heckaman said. â€śShe played a good game, and you could see that she even knew she missed some shots tonight that she should have hit.â€ť
And she saved some of her best work for when Triton needed it most.
BREMEN â€” It was a game neither team deserved to lose, but someone had to.
Bremenâ€™s football season came to an end Friday night when quarterback Nate Leeper was stopped a yard shy of the end zone on fourth down in overtime. As Rensselaer Central players rushed the field in celebration, Bremen fans stayed in their seats, wishing they could see just one more play.
No. 1 Rensselaer Central 35. Bremen 28.
â€śYouâ€™re the best team Iâ€™ve ever been a part of,â€ť Bremen coach Bob Holmes told his players through tears. â€śYou put Bremen football back on the map and thereâ€™s nothing to be ashamed of. â€ś

COLUMBUS, Ga. â€” While many of his fellow Plymouth grads spent time in college classes the past five years, 2004 Plymouth grad Seth Hunter has had a bit different classroom on the way to his bright future.
Enlisting in the Air Force out of school, Hunterâ€™s rise up the ranks has included three combat tours of duty in Iraq, and most recently graduation from the United States Armyâ€™s prestigious Ranger School. A Staff Sergeant in the Air Force, Hunter is one of less than 200 Airmen in the history of the Air Force to successfully complete the course.
PLYMOUTH â€” A family history of service is having an impact.
Veterans Day observance at Jefferson Elementary has traditionally included a message from a local Veteran. This yearâ€™s speaker is an everyday influence on the schoolâ€™s students.
Custodian Kirk Clark interacts with the students at the school every day, and coming from a family full of Veterans â€” his father was in the Army (82nd Airborne), two brothers in the Marine Corp, one in the Air Force and one in the Navy â€” heâ€™s inspired a whole new group of young people to service.
