National Register to consider Bremen landmarks

March 3, 2011

BREMEN — Within the next year, two local landmarks could be listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Working with Bremen historian RT Henke, Plymouth architect and preservationist Kurt Garner hopes to secure the designation for the Bremen Depot and the town's water storage standpipe.

The honor comes with potential financial benefits.

"Being on the registry helps you in getting grants and so forth for future projects," Henke said. "In a lot of cases it gives you points, because it is an important consideration. This really is a good thing to do."

Personnel, vehicle changes at BPD

February 18, 2011

The Bremen Police Department is used to trading in its used vehicles for new ones, which it will soon do with two within its six-vehicle fleet. However, it isn't used to the simultaneous staff turnover it currently faces.

Dispatcher Laverne Replogle retired Feb. 17 after 17 years between the BPD and the Marshall County Sheriff's Department 911 center. Barb Capron, the department's dispatch supervisor, will retire Feb. 28 after 28 years of service.

Capron's position will be filled in-house by Melinda Daily, a radio operator of 23 years who will move from Class B to Class A.

State report favorable for Bremen schools

February 9, 2011

BREMEN — With the release of the Indiana Department of Education Annual Performance Report, Bremen Public Schools saw continued improvement in some key areas.

Perhaps most notably, Bremen High School's graduation rate jumped to 92.3 percent, up from 85.6 percent two years ago and 7.2 percent above the state average.

"That's been a big goal as part of the improvement plan at the high school," Bremen Public Schools Superintendent Russ Mikel said. "Unlike some districts, we're at that rate without granting any waivers, so that's a true number for us and we're pretty proud about that."

Trouble averted with local gas leak

BREMEN — In a not-so-uncommon occurrence, a local digging project turned hazardous last week.

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.
