Crews staying ahead of snow fall

January 13, 2011

While county road crews deal with their own problems like blowing and drifting, city crews have another problem entirely. Where do you put all this stuff?

Slippery roads to blame for crash

January 13, 2011

PLYMOUTH — A slippery road at the intersection of Olive Trail and Overmyer Drive in Plymouth were to blame for a one-vehicle accident Sunday afternoon. At 12:45 p.m. Howard Holland, Plymouth, 85, was driving a red 2002 Dodge Caravan south on Overmyer Drive and attempted to turn right onto Olive Trail but his van kept on turning. The van went off the right side of the road and struck a guide for a utility pole and the cable got wedged behind the left rear tire. Holland was not injured in the accident but the van received some minor damage and a flat tire.

Prom dresses needed

January 13, 2011
