It even turns a kid off sometimes to school and they don’t want to learn anymore, and it then turns out that maybe they become a behavioral problem and the issue is that they’re really struggling with a subject like math,” said Director of Special Education for Plymouth Schools Michele Riise.Plymouth is in a special class of its own, having been part of the former JESSE Co-Op with eight other school corporations. Two years ago, JESSE and its board of directors, made up of the superintendents for the schools in the area, chose to give more control to the schools in order to reorganize, streamline, and put the power back into the hands of the schools. Culver, Triton, and Argos make up part of one service district; John Glenn and Union North a second district; and Knox, North Judson and Oregon Davis the third district. “The schools were paying into JESSE to provide for the staff in their buildings and shared the staff and costs,” explained JESSE Director Linda Holland.Under their own umbrella, the schools, aside from Plymouth, hires and pays their own staff instead of using JESSE hired teachers. The only services that the schools still use from the cooperative are staff such as occupational therapy and physical therapy services, autism, hearing impaired, and vision impaired consultants. Schools share services within their districts and classrooms.“They still act as a group and we share these expensive supportive services. Everybody shares and pays equally for the number of kids that they have,” explained Holland. JESSE still works to keep the schools abreast of changes in education so that they can remain complaint with state standards.According to Tom Bendy, the treasurer for John Glenn School Corporation, for each student who attends school, the state provides about $5,500 per student to the school. An additional $8,350 is given per child if the child has a severe handicap, while mild to moderate disability students garner $2,265. John Glenn spends over $1 million on special education.“If the child is preschool age and requires special education services like early intervention, that’s around $2,750. The money applies toward the education of a student, transportation, if needed, and that just depends on the child,” said Bendy.According to Bendy, even with the additional funding that comes from the state, there are some children that schools will lose money on, depending on the needs of that child. Children who are more severely disabled may require more than the special education teachers, such as an additional staff member or in some instances, a full time nurse, who may be paid at $18,000-20,000 per year.“State revenue won’t cover that,” said Bendy. “We have to use general fund monies to cover those costs.”This is not necessarily a failing of education, but a matter of how much funding a school receives. After Plymouth split into its own district because of its size, it began to handle 6-11 and 6-19 grants, which adds some revenue to the costs of providing for the needs of special education students.Some of the schools work around what they have and don’t have.LaVille Elementary School used to have three special education teachers. In order to save costs without cutting on needs, LaVille transferred one of its teachers to the high school. While technically cutting the position, they rearranged staff to better suit the needs of their students. The two teachers remaining at the elementary are able to manage with the 40 or so special education kids that they have.“The last five years, the biggest challenge is because of state funds being cut,” said Rob Richards, a special needs educator, who has been with LaVille schools for 14 years.Richards said that “the nice thing about LaVille that other schools may not have is the variety of research based programs. Our school had funding at a time to get these programs.”Programs like the Wilson Reading System and Read Naturally, a computer based software geared at reading development, is good for kids with reading disabilities.Union North shares a psychologist with John Glenn.In Triton Schools district, Argos handles students with mild or moderate handicaps and children with autism spectrum disorder, while Culver takes on students with more emotional issues and hearing impairments, according to Superintendent of Triton Schools, Donna Burroughs.“We have students sent to those schools because they have a teacher specifically for that type of disability,” she explained.Often students will be bused to the school that can best handle their needs, especially after meeting with school administrators, counselors, case committee supervisors, and the parents, to best determine and review what the child needs to be successful in school.“Kids with a disability are different from every other kid with a disability,” stated Burroughs. “We sit down and evaluate what is needed for the student.”Each school does this for the children moving into their service areas. Schools are unable to give a final estimation for how many special education need students they will have until just before the start of the year when final roles are tallied.Plymouth, INRachael Herbert-Varchetto - Staff WriterGiving every child an education with special needs is challenging and necessaryThe Pilot Town officials confirm visit from Blueberry Festival board 2014-08-01T16:14:48-04:002014-08-01T16:14:48-04:00Copyright 2010 The Pilot NewsRepresentatives from the Blueberry Festival Board have reportedly looked at several alternative sites throughout the county as a “what-if” back up in the event that the festival would move from Centennial Park in Plymouth.Bob Brown, Blueberry Festival Board member, met with Argos Community Schools Interim Superintendent, Russ Mikel, two days prior to the Argos School Board meeting in July. According to Mikel, he was asked to make the school board aware of the possibility of moving the festival to Argos and the need to use the school’s parking lots to accommodate parking. Mikel said he was asked if school would be closed the Friday prior to the festival, if they festival would move to Argos. If that day off would be a consideration, the school calendar would need to be altered for the 2015-2016 school year.Mikel said, “I was asked to share with the Board to make them aware.”This conversation was first reported by the Pilot News on July 23. In that report, Marshall County Blueberry Festival coordinator said concerns about the planned tennis court relocation was one of the reasons that a move may be necessary. The tennis courts in Centennial Park are in need of repair but they are located in a flood plain. New courts are being planned nearby, but this will displace some of the Festival’s favorite attractions, such as the Hoosier Old Wheels Car show, the Balloon glow and the fireworks.The tennis courts are expected to cost about $1 million, with the City and Plymouth Schools paying for the cost.Brown and three other representatives of the Blueberry Festival Board also met with the Argos Utilities Superintendent, Jim Burroughs, and a town council member in July. “We are running our water and waste water capacity at 48 percent now,” Burroughs said.He said the upgrades to the town’s systems were put in place for any future industrial and/or residential growth in the community. A new water tower was erected in the town approximately 10-15 years ago that increased the water reserve from 75,000 gallons to 150,000 gallons, according to Burroughs. The waste water treatment facility was undated approximately 15 years ago.Burroughs said the town has two sub-stations for electricity that they purchase from IMPA (Indiana Municipal Power Agency) and resell to local consumers. He said Banner Electric was also present with board members as they toured the area to speak to electric capacities.Burroughs said he and his staff have a “can do” attitude” Referring to the town’s utilities employees, Burroughs added, “We’ll make it work. I am proud and confident of their abilities.”Ultimately the Argos Park Board would be the entity to negotiate with the Blueberry Festival Board, the Argos School Board would have to approve school grounds/buildings related needs, and the Argos Town Council would have to address any street or roads concerns.Since the story broke, public support has rallied towards keeping the festival in Plymouth, including several pages on social media sites. The current three-year between the Plymouth Park Board and the Blueberry Festival expires this year. Blueberry Festival Coordinator, Sherrie Martin, said no negotiations would be considered until after the 2014 festival. The Blueberry Festival Board enters into separate agreements with some events at the festival such as the Old Wheels Antique Car Show and the Hot Air Balloon Glow, carnival rides, vendors, and others including of-site official parking at Plymouth High School and Riverside Intermediate School and the Moose tram service.Pilot News Managing Editor Lois Tomaszewski contributed to this report.Plymouth, INCarol Anders - Pilot News CorrespondentArgos Town officials confirm visit from Blueberry Festival board The Pilot’s Ice Cream Parlor is bringing 36 flavors of ice cream to Plymouth2014-08-01T16:09:27-04:002014-08-01T16:09:27-04:00Copyright 2010 The Pilot News “There’s three principals that I plan to follow to maintain a successful business here,” said Jon Webster, co-owner of Mooney’s. “You have to give a good product, a good portion at a good price and maintain a clean inviting family friendly atmosphere. I am going to do all three and more.” The product Webster is referring to is Hershey’s real ice cream. The ice cream cannot be bought at stores; it is only available through ice cream parlors and shops. Mooney’s will feature 36 flavors of hand dipped ice cream that can be filler for an ice cream cone, turned into a custom sundae or shake. Mooney’s will also be serving Snow Storms, ice cream with candy blended inside. Mooney’s will also have fat-free soft serve vanilla yogurt, Miss Wendi’s Old Fashioned Molasses Cookies and made fresh bakery treats such as brownies, fudge and cookies that can be added to a sundae. As a signature item Webster is working out the details for a Plymouth Rock sundae that will have seven scoops. Another unique item at Mooney’s is the Intelligentsia Coffee. The coffee is a favorite of Webster. It comes from Chicago, Ill. and will be available for patrons. The good portion and price will be evident with each serving. Kids cones will be $1 all day every day. Mooney’s will also be working with organizations throughout the community to offer a portion of the price of a cone to be donated to various charities. At the time of this article the specifics were still being worked out. “I want to do things to be a good community partner,” explained Webster. “If someone comes in and identifies they are with a particular organization I will donate 25 cents of each cone to that organization.” That isn’t the only plan Mooney’s has for community partnerships though. Other ideas include a large candy jar where patrons can guess how many pieces of candy are in the jar for a quarter. At the end of the month, or other designated period, the proceeds will be donated to a local charity. The fun family environment will be provided by the completely remodeled interior, comfortable seating inside and outside, a game room and a walk-up window. The interior will feature booths and tables while the outside will also have tables for seating. The inside has been completely remodeled with bright colors and a service bar for sundae toppings. Also available inside will be a game room. The room will feature arcade style games for kids and kids at heart to enjoy. Webster is working on deciding what games to bring although pin ball is high on his priority list. The walk up window will be ideal for patrons who are riding bikes or walking dogs. No need to come inside, the staff will scoop and deliver through a window on the rear of the building according to Webster. Soon the Greenway trail will be passing right beside Mooney’s making the walk-up window a good addition. “I got the ice cream bug after working for Bonnie Doon (ice cream parlor) years ago,” said Webster. “While working there I saw parents bringing in their kids because their parents had brought them in. And grandparents bringing in their grandkids because they had fond memories from their own childhood. I want to bring that to Plymouth. I want to be a part of families making memories; I want to provide the place for families to make those memories for generations.” Mooney’s will be open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Sunday hours will be 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Webster plans on adjusting the hours if necessary. Webster included his son Josiah in the business as well giving him a 10 percent ownership. Webster maintains a 75 percent ownership (10 percent of that is Josiah’s) while Mike Mooney has the other 25 percent. Jon Webster is opening Mooney’s with help from co-owner and friend of over 27 years, Mike Mooney. Mooney took Webster under his wing in the flooring business helping Webster become established in the industry. And now the two tease that Webster followed Mooney into the ice cream business as well. Mooney’s Blue Moon opened in New Buffalo, Mich. in 2010 by Mike Mooney. This past April Mooney opened a second location in Three Oaks, Mich. and in less than two weeks the third location will open on E. Jefferson Street in Plymouth. Other locations in Marshall County have been discussed as well. To keep up to date with Mooney’s progress find them on Facebook at “Every one that likes our page will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win free ice cream for a year,” added Webster.This story appeared in the July 30 edition of the Pilot News.Plymouth, INDiona Eskew - Staff WriterMooney’s Ice Cream Parlor is bringing 36 flavors of ice cream to PlymouthThe Pilot Festival carries high price tag2014-08-01T16:04:52-04:002014-08-01T16:04:52-04:00Copyright 2010 The Pilot NewsAs a 501(c)3, the Blueberry Festival has to reinvest much of the funds that it raises to go back into equipment and other costs.“A lot of it is from sponsors,” said Festival Board President David Caldwell. “We get sponsorship from different people.”Two sponsors include Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center and Gillsingers, who gives over $1 million in equipment to the fair to use.Some of their funds are made through the various venues at the fair. For using the Plymouth High School parking lot, the school takes a cut of 50 percent of the proceeds, while Blueberry receives 30 percent and the Moose Lodge the other 20 percent.According to Caldwell, the fair makes most of its money from the carnival that sets up, however they do receive a portion of the take from the vendors that populate the festival’s grounds. The festival usually generates approximately $500,000 in funds from the four day affair.However, their costs can exceed beyond that figure. This year, the festival is estimated at over $800,000.“The thing we spend money on is the concert. This year is not as much as last year. Just for the entertainers themselves is $100,000,” said Caldwell.To be more precise, this year’s entertainment is roughly $160,000, including the $40,000 stage. In 2013, the concert cost just over $200,000, and was cut short due to inclement weather.Bob Brown, the board member in charge of security at the fair, has stated that with the recent kerfuffle around the new tennis courts that the parks department wishes to install will have greater financial impact on the fair than just shuffling things around.“If we moved that’s gonna be a serious impact on us. We’ve got so much money, tens of thousands of dollars invested in that park underground, all the electric, the water, the sewer lines,” said Brown. “Everything that we put in there, nobody’s helped us pay for it. Any of it. That all comes out of our pocket. All that infrastructure is blueberries.”The consequences of the cost by not having the fair could be potentially damaging to the county and city, according to Brown. Many people come to spend their money at vendors, booths, and shops in the area, as well as hotels. Brown insists that moving somewhere else, especially a new town, can be a potential revenue loss, especially if shifting the placement of the festival’s activities means having less access to the amount of utility and electrical access that has been put in.“They don’t realize what it costs. Our venue is really inside the park, inside the confines of Centennial Park,” stated Brown.In addition to the costs for entertainment alone, there is the behind-the-scenes cost. Liability insurance will cost the fair $28,000 to $29,000, not including vehicle insurance, personal liability, and insurance for the rented equipment.The festival even pays for its own security.“Plymouth police department doesn’t have enough officers to direct traffic and get people across the streets safely,” explained Brown. “So we spend $30,000 of our money hiring police officers from other jurisdictions to come in. [People] look at all these police officers and say Plymouth is spending a lot of money on police. None of those are Plymouth officers.”Brown stated that while using officers is more expensive, “they know what to do, how to handle situations. We have issues out there you never hear about and never will. We quietly take care of it.”For the entire weekend, their security budget is $60,000.To set up for the event, the festival also pays the park $31,000 to rent for 10 days to set up, as well as pay for any damages that are incurred during the festival. Between seven to 11 electricians are hired from a professional company to work the entire 10 days, making sure that no sparks, aside from the fireworks, go flying. Roughly $40,000 is allocated for the voltage needed to power the event.Even the toilets are expensive.“We have about 265 porta-johns. We pay $30,000 for a lot of outdoor toilets.”But whether or not the show goes on, as was not the case with the concert last year, someone has to get paid.“All those expenses go on whether we have a successful show or not,” said Brown.Plymouth, INRachael Herbert-Varchetto - Staff WriterBlueberry Festival carries high price tagThe Pilot arrest man for child molesting2014-08-01T16:01:26-04:002014-08-01T16:01:26-04:00Copyright 2010 The Pilot NewsJonas Salazar Olvera was taken into custody at 8 p.m. Friday by Plymouth Police at his residence.
