PLYMOUTH â While the dry weather has caused a problem with burning around the county, it has also caused a problem with the construction of the new Pioneer Drive â workers are finishing ahead of the asphalt.
Good weather has enabled dirt work and paving contractors to move at a very quick pace. Ron Wireman â DLZ construction engineer on the project â reported that the job was â43.2 percentâ done to the Marshall County Commissioners. All work is complete between S.R. 17 and the railroad; from the railroad to Lincoln Highway and the 9th Road connector and the cul-de-sac.
PLYMOUTH âÂ Historically, Mishawaka Marian and South Bend St. Josephâs have dominated the Plymouth Volleyball Sectional.
And although the field is generally more even this year, the two teams are favored once more, with the Lady Pilgrims following closely behind at the Class 3A Sectional 17 this week at The Rock.
PLYMOUTH â Two local art galleries held openings of new exhibits/ shows last weekend.
Inspirative and Heart-land Artists are both located in downtown Plymouth.
Inspirative Gallery presented âContemporary Still Lifeâ with selections from Dennis Woitkiewicz, Angela Leed, Scott Hatt, Anthony Droege and Glenn Howell.
BREMEN â The residents around Lake of the Woods will have a chance to sit down with the Marshall County Commissioners to here the countyâs final decision about taxes to be assessed on private lake access areas around the lake.
Complaints about public access and placing of private piers in public right of way began a process by the county of looking into just who had ownership of the many areaâs at the end of roadways to access Lake of the Woods.
PLYMOUTH â The Marshall County Commissioners have made an effort to put some âsparkâ in the countywide burn ban.
Abnormally dry conditions led to the disaster emergency declaration of a county wide ban on any open burning Oct. 6. With no real rain in sight conditions have continued to become more dangerous for the possibility of a disastrous fire caused by blowing of sparks from an open burn.
Three known field fires occurred over the weekend owing to open burning.

PLYMOUTH â Cancer is a disease that often leaves a footprint of fear and despair.
Saturday, a group of people and their canine companions left their own footprint (or pawprint) in a step towards hope in the battle against this insidious disease.
Saturday was the inaugural Bark For Life fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Held by the tennis courts at Centennial Park, the event not only raised $560 for the ongoing battle against cancer, but allowed family and friends alike the opportunity to acknowledge the loyal companionship and healing influence of manâs best friend.
PLYMOUTH â Donât let the warm summer-like days fool you. Winter is coming and when it does, the weather forecasters predict a cold one.
Steve Keiser, chairman of the 12th annual Warm Up Marshall County Coat Drive, is a bit worried.
Actually, he is a lot worried.
âWith the economy like it is, there are people, especially children, who will face the winter without the benefit of a warm coat.â
Shivering children is what got Steve, the father of three, started on the project in the first place.
PLYMOUTH â The enrollment for the Plymouth Schools is up 34.72 students over last year.
The number reflects the way in which the state qualifies students as full-time, part-time, or half-time.
For instance, despite the fact that the kindergarten program in Plymouth is full-time, the state counts those enrolled as half-time in terms of reimbursement status.
