New location, award for local jeweler

January 2, 2011

BREMEN — For Plaza Jewelers owner/operator Angie Thornton, a change of venue was needed.
The decision to move from the store's previous location in the plaza by H & R Block to the new one at 1311 W. Plymouth St. was two-fold.
“We'd prefer to own rather than rent,” Thornton said. “Plus it fixed up an eyesore in town and we should have better visibility.”
The redone storefront is a far cry from its previous state as a dilapidated former laundromat.

Local child a survivor, thriver

January 2, 2011

BREMEN — It hasn’t been an easy road for Brenna Blosser, but the 6-year-old’s exuberance for life serves as a lesson for those who don’t realize how lucky they are.
On Sept. 15, 2005, the same day as her sister Madison’s birthday, Brenna’s life was forever changed. Just 13 months old at the time, Brenna’s parents — Brad and Mindi Blosser — thought she was fighting a cold. Then, in the middle of the night, Brenna’s left leg turned cold and blue, and her breathing became seriously labored.

Bremen students giving back

December 21, 2010

BREMEN — It is never too early to recognize the importance of helping others, as students at Bremen Elementary-Middle School are learning first-hand.
The brainchild of first-year guidance counselor Jennifer True, the recently formed Bremen Leadership Team (BLT) is taking time to give back to the community.
“It was something I really wanted to do, so I started it and asked all of the eighth-graders if they would want to be a part,” True said. “I got an overwhelming response from them. I have a solid 35 or 40 kids at any given meeting, and there’s more joining all the time.”

Boys & Girls Club keeping kids busy

December 21, 2010

BREMEN — With most households having two working parents — if they’re lucky enough to both have jobs — many face the question of what to do with their young children after school. The Boys & Girls Club of Bremen provides an answer.
Started just last year, the Boys & Girls Club gives kids a place to go between the end of school and when their parents get off work. Located within Bremen Elementary-Middle School, it is a refuge of learning and fun.

Bremen Bucks keep local money local

December 21, 2010

BREMEN — To ensure a solid future for area businesses and downtown, few things are more critical than residents spending their money here.
“It is extremely important. It’s how our communities thrive,” Bremen Chamber of Commerce Treasurer Phyllis Van De Keere said. “If all of our residents shopped out of town, then our businesses would soon have to close. If they close, our town would start to die. It is important for people to shop in town whenever possible.”

Bremen Depot has new life

December 12, 2010

A local labor of love — and sometimes agony — has reached its completion.
After years of physical, emotional and financial effort, the Bremen Depot relocation and restoration project, spearheaded by Historic Bremen, is complete.
“We have finished it and we’re now moving stuff in,” Historic Bremen coordinator R.T. Henke said. “The plan is to make it a welcome center and a railroad history museum, and also a history center for Bremen.”
The ride to completion has been long and bumpy.

Holy Walk celebrates 30 years

December 12, 2010

BREMEN — Every December for the last 30 years the Bremen community gets together to recreate a miracle: the Holy Walk.
For an event to bring together over 200 volunteers, involving area churches of varying denominations for the last 30 years is also a miracle. This miracle is due in large part to the Huff family.

Each year people from all over the region and from other countries come to experience this unique event.
