Free wi-fi for downtown

June 17, 2011

PLYMOUTH — City council members voted this week to enter into an agreement with DC Tech Solutions, LLC, a Plymouth company.
DC Tech will provide high-speed Internet service to city departments in exchange for being allowed to place its equipment on Plymouth’s two water towers and on top of the fire department. In addition, DC Tech will supply free wireless Internet service to the downtown area, a $5,000 value.
“There aren’t many towns our size offering free wireless downtown,” said councilman Mark Neidig during the meeting. “For tourism, and for downtown residents, it’s a good asset.”

June 17, 2011

YFC will hold its annual golf outing fundraiser at the Plymouth Country Club Thursday, June 23 — and thanks to some help from local businesses, two lucky golfers could have a new ride home.
“Somebody is definitely going to be driving a car home courtesy of the Auto Park,” said Bob Beck, leader of YFC. “Auto Park will give away a car for the golfer that is closest to the pin. Oliver Ford will be giving away a truck for a golfer who hits a hole-in-one.”

National regatta returns to Lake Max, brings fun for public, participants alike

June 17, 2011

If Lake Maxinkuckee looks especially picturesque this weekend due to a swath of graceful sails on its waters, that's because Culver is hosting the 2011 C Scow National Championship Regatta from June 17 through 19. And one of the people behind the event, Culver's own Ed Furry, says that's good news for the whole community -- and he hopes the whole community will take part in the festivities.
"We'll probably have 60 or 70 boats, each with a two or three-person crew," he says. "We'll be bringing a few hundred people to Culver to support the restaurants and businesses."

Relay for Life is Saturday

June 16, 2011

The event concludes with closing ceremonies at 6 a.m. Sunday morning.
But you don’t have to put on any miles to help out.

Health Department may charge fee

June 15, 2011

PLYMOUTH — During the Marshall County council meeting Monday morning, Wes Burden from the health department informed the council that the state of Indiana is pushing county health departments to apply for Medicaid funding. As a result, the health department may begin charging an $8 administration fee for each vaccine given. The fee would go to pay for supplies that go along with administering shots, not for the actual vaccines themselves, which are provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and are federally funded.
