April 22, 1932 â€“ Nov. 23, 2010
PLYMOUTH â€” Margaurite L. â€śMaggieâ€ť McHargue, 78, died at 10:45 a.m. Tuesday, November 23, 2010 in the home of her daughter and in the care of her loving family.

ARGOS â€” Bremen boys basketball coach Kyle Hanyzewski was itching to see his new-look Lions play.
You could see why during Wednesdayâ€™s season opener.
With stifling defense, Bremen jumped out to an early 18-point lead and cruised to a 44-29 victory over Argos.
â€śI came here saying we wanted to be 1-0, and we are,â€ť Hanyzewski said. â€śAs a coach and perfectionist Iâ€™m going to critique some things I didnâ€™t like, but the bottom line is 1-0.â€ť
Bremenâ€™s pressure on the ball forced 24 turnovers, eight during the first quarter, which set the tone for the entire game.
SOUTH BEND â€” John Glenn racked up 25 turnovers, missed 19 free throws, surrendered 16 unanswered points in the first frame â€” and still won.
Of course, South Bend Clay clanked 15 charity tries, struggled to a 36 percent mark from the field against Glennâ€™s 2-3 zone and man defenses, and suffered persistent foul trouble itself.
In the season debut for both teams that looked every bit of it, the Falcons nailed all seven of their third-quarter offerings from the field, including four from downtown, to escape with a 61-54 boys basketball victory over the host Colonials Wednesday.
WALKERTON â€” John Glenn head girls basketball coach Dan Hutton has been named the 2010 Falcon Award Winner.
He will receive the award Tuesday between Glennâ€™s junior varsity and varsity boys basketball game against South Bend Riley. He will also receive the Northern State Conference Service Award at the ceremony.
JV start time is slated for 6 p.m., and there will be a reception held in Huttonâ€™s honor in the Glenn High School teachersâ€™ lounge after the varsity contest.
PLYMOUTH â€“ If you missed a chance to see the Pride of Plymouth marching band in their history making performance you can be thankful for another shot at it.
The televised version of the Indiana State School Music Association's marching band state finals will be broadcast on WNIT-TV Thanksgiving Day from Noon to 2:00 p.m.
Include the Plymouth Band with your holiday festivities. All state finalist bands will be shown.
PLYMOUTH â€” Nineteen-year-old Eric Day and his family will be celebrating Thanksgiving with a renewed sense of how much family, friends and a caring community truly mean.
After an ordeal that started the weekend before Halloween and escalated into two brain surgeries, days in intensive care, and rigorous physical therapy, Eric is finally home.Â
Eric had come home from Indiana State College in Terre Haute, where he is a freshman, to pick up a suit for an interview.
CULVER â€” Familiar faces in Culverâ€™s Lake Patrol â€” most with lengthy careers in the service â€” will no longer patrol the waters of Lake Maxinkuckee or the roads around it following a vote by the Lake Maxinkuckee Associationâ€™s board of directors to keep the patrol in line with best practices and procedures for law and emergency enforcement.
