Relay for Life is Saturday

June 16, 2011

PLYMOUTH — Plans, dollars, donations... they’re all falling into place for the all-night Marshall County Relay for Life event Saturday, June 18 in Centennial Park.
The first official lap — and one of the most moving — is the ‘Survivor Lap’ at 4 p.m., an earlier start this year following opening ceremonies. The “Parade of Teams” recognizing all of their efforts will follow.
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.

Oak Road construction workers join union strike

June 15, 2011

PLYMOUTH — A strike that began last Thursday in parts of Northern Indiana reached Plymouth Tuesday. Construction workers who are members of the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 150, including those working on the Oak Road construction near Wal-Mart, halted work Tuesday morning. They will remain on the picket line “until they can settle,” according to one worker Tuesday afternoon.

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.

From Honduras to Ireland; Day continues travels

June 14, 2011

Even traveling for 30 hours straight didn’t keep Plymouth native Katie Day from jumping right in to get the most out of a seven-week trip to Ireland.
Day, a 2008 Plymouth High School graduate and Butler University senior, learned of opportunities to work for room and board in Ireland when she was traveling throughout Europe last year.
Day said, “I heard about an internet site (helpx.net) where people post their needs. I will be there for seven weeks and working on three different farms.”
To start, she will be saying at a village about 15 minutes outside of Limerick.

Coroner to present case study

June 14, 2011

BOURBON — It was to be the first day of school Aug. 18, 2009 for Triton freshman Jacob Berger.
Sadly however, his family, friends, teammates, classmates and the entire Bourbon community learned that day that Jacob had died.
The 14-year-old had been at football practice the night before and had received a head injury from a head to head impact, but it was discovered later that Jacob’s death was not solely related to football. Jacob’s father, Tim Berger, said the cause of his death was due to a Dual Berry aneurism stemming from a congenital condition.

Harness, 35 years CCHS' art teacher, retires

June 13, 2011

Mary Beth Harness’ retirement may have taken place in much the same manner as her more than 35 years of teaching art at Culver Community High School: quietly, but with significant and lasting impact.
Harness said farewell to the school on the final day of classes last Thursday, ending a career here she began in 1974, just six years after the school opened in its present location.

Triton invests in school's appearance during community work day

June 13, 2011

BOURBON — A small group of teachers, parents, and kids gathered at 8 a.m. Saturday outside Triton Elementary School.
Their goal was simple — spruce up the school. As the sun grew hotter, the group spilt up to cover two different areas: landscaping in the front of the building, and renovating the playground in the back.
“It already looks so much better,” said mom Monica Best, waving her hand at the see-saws that were being painted bright blue — a big improvement from their earlier chipped state.
