March 24, 2011

BLOOMINGTON — Plymouth High School graduate (2007) and Indiana University senior Meredith Barron will undoubtedly remember many special events from her four years at I.U., but the one scheduled for April 12 will more than likely be a standout.
Barron persuaded rapper Lil Wayne — real name Dewayne Carter — to perform at the college’s Assembly Hall during the annual Little 500 activities in April.
“I’ve been a fan of Lil Wayne for four or five years,” Barron said. “My friends have been talking about trying to get him to come to our campus for a long time. So, I decided to give it a try.”

Curt Feece made a second trip to speak to the Marshall County Commissioners about building a new soccer complex on land the group hopes to lease from Marshall County.
