Zachary Springer, 28, Warsaw, was arrested and preliminarily charged with false informing, habitual offender and felony level 2 robbery and theft. Detectives had determined through their investigation that Springer had initially placed a false telephone call last Friday morning to the Wawasee High School as a diversionary ploy, according to Captain Aaron Rovenstine. Officers allege that approximately 22 minutes later, Springer entered and robbed the Key Bank along State Road 13 in the town of North Webster, the press release noted.“Deputies had worked tirelessly on this investigation from the initial call, determined to locate and apprehend the suspect,” stated Rovenstine. He also stated that detectives and crime scene technicians had executed search warrants today on Springer’s residence, along with his vehicle that was secured this morning during the arrest.Springer is currently being held in the Kosciusko County Jail on a $400,000 bond.

"This clinic is not designed to replace regular veterinary care; it is for people that need a little help getting their pet up to date on their shots."The clinic will service both dogs and cats at the cost of $10 for a rabies vaccine. Five way shots will be $15 and both shots for $25. Microchipping of pets will also be available that day for $20. All payments are to be cash only. The shelter does not have the equipment to accept debit or credit cards. Microchipping includes one year registration with Home Again. The shelter staff will take care of the initial registration. Pet owners will need to update the information annually on their own, at their own expense.The event is first come first serve basis beginning at noon on Saturday Sept. 20 until 2 p.m. There will be no early visits allowed and no appointments. The clinic will not open until the shelter's regular hours of business are over (noon). Those attending the clinic are asked to wait in their vehicles with their pets until then.Those bringing their pets will have to fill out paperwork before taking their pet in for vaccines. There will be several volunteers on hand to help with paperwork and pet handling. Some volunteers will come from Brown Mackie College in South Bend. The students are part of the Vet Tech program and the clinic provides a hands on learning experience for them.This is the first time that Bourbon Veterinary Clinic has participated in the rabies clinic at the shelter. They are not only volunteering their time to perform the vaccinations they are also donating money to the shelter."We are donating all money collected about the cost of the vaccinations to the shelter," said Leeper. "We want to be able to help protect the animals and to help keep the doors open at the shelter."Plymouth, INDiona EskewLow-cost rabies clinic SaturdayThe Pilot Newsurn:publicid:dailypress.com:23104Change0Usable2014-09-19T08:35:00-04:00 urn:publicid:dailypress.com:23103Argos council turns down military Humvee2014-09-19T08:11:32-04:002014-09-19T08:04:25-04:00Copyright 2010 The Pilot NewsRudd noted that the vehicle would not need to be painted police colors making it a “squad vehicle,” but that it could be a neutral color and therefore used by all town departments.Opposition by two town residents present caused a heated discussion to ensue. One issue raised is the cost of fuel for the vehicle. Council Vice President Dave Walker said that although the vehicle is “free,” that does not mean that it does not cost money to maintain. In the end, the request was defeated 3-2 with Council President George Null and member Linda Jones voting in favor and Walker and members Mark VanDerWeele and Casie Rowe voting against.Plymouth, INEd Scherer-BerryArgos council turns down military HumveeThe Pilot Newsurn:publicid:dailypress.com:23103Change0Usable2014-09-19T08:04:25-04:00 urn:publicid:dailypress.com:23102Refinancing of the jail bonds delayed2014-09-19T07:57:03-04:002014-09-19T07:57:03-04:00Copyright 2010 The Pilot NewsThat snag held up the agenda during the Marshall County Holding Company’s Board of Directors meeting on Monday morning. The board had anticipated ratifying the sale of the bonds but was unable to do so because the POS hadn’t been distributed. According to County Attorney James Clevenger the POS is expected to be distributed yet this week.The county currently pays $1.2 million annually on the lease rental bonds. There is $11,720,000 outstanding on those bonds. The bonds are currently being sold with interest rates above 4 percent. Refinancing could bring that rate down below 1 percent to a maximum of 3.65 percent during the life of the lease. The numbers however, are not written in stone due to the possibility of changes in the market.According to estimates provided by Todd Umbaugh, of Umbaugh and Associates, refinancing could save the county more than $360,000 after fees. Those fees include local counsel, bond counsel, financial advisor, registrar, paying agent and other miscellaneous expenses.

Committee members discussed the tree that died and what they could do to prevent the same thing from happening again.“Jimmy (Marquardt, City of Plymouth Street Department superintendent) and I have been talking and what we would like to do is get an excavator down there and remove all that junk dirt that is in the planter or Christmas Tree base because right now it’s a reflection pond; it’s filled with standing water,” said Plymouth Park Superintendent Michael Hite.The planter currently has french drains around the base however those drains quickly became filled preventing proper drainage. The committee agreed that before a new tree could be planted a long term plan for the drainage needed to be determined.This year the city of Plymouth will decorate the old Christmas Tree next to Bowen Printing. There is a good chance that a tree will go up in the spot at River Park Square, however, it would likely be a cut tree.
