Oct. 22, 1936 â€”Â Aug. 26, 2010
PLYMOUTH â€”Â Clovia D. Andrews, 73, of 905 Berkley St., Plymouth, passed away Thursday, Aug. 26, 2010, at 8:30 p.m., in Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center, Plymouth.
Clovia was born Oct. 22, 1936, in Richland Center, Ind. to Leonard and Caroline (Reed) Dickson. Clovia and H. Boyd Dunlap were united in marriage Feb. 14, 1954.
After their marriage they moved to Plymouth. Boyd passed away May 7, 1983.
She later married Thomas Andrews and was married to him until his passing.
She has filled huge stadiums and played in smoky rooms but for country superstar Pam Tillis it has always been about the music.
â€śI try to conduct myself with as much integrity as I can,â€ť she said by phone from her home in Nashville. â€śI put my heart into it.â€ť
Tillis will put her heart into it in Plymouth this Labor Day weekend as the headliner for the Blueberry Festivalâ€™s Main Stage. While she says there is a real energy and excitement about the big crowds, the smaller shows have their own special appeal.
ARGOS â€” A new policy to make Argos schools more secure for students went into effect this week and so far itâ€™s been smooth sailing.
Last week Superintendent Dr. Jennifer Lucht announced to parents that beginning on Aug. 23 the doors to the elementary and secondary school would be locked during the school day â€” from 8:15 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. â€” to provide a more secure environment for students.
PLYMOUTH â€” The Plymouth School Corporation could be paying approximately $500,000 less for utilities for 2010 than in previous years.
Superintendent Dan Tyree said they needed to find ways to cut the schoolâ€™s budget when the state made major cuts to the schoolsâ€™ general fund this year and last.
Tyree gives much of the credit for the decrease in utility costs to Maintenance Director Dave Schoof. Schoof has been in the directorâ€™s position for the last 18 months and has been in the maintenance department for five years.

Easton Mann recently out of surgery to help his hearing, was treated a little like a celebrity at last Friday nightâ€™s Plymouth vs. Bremen football game. Seniors lined up and gave Easton high fives with Coach John Barron, then Houston Hodges presented him with a ball autographed by the team. Tonight, the Rockies take on Rochester on the road, with game time at 7 p.m.
WARSAW â€” Triton topped the field on its home course at challenging Rozella Ford, while Bremen also got something to celebrate as the Lady Lions earned their first win Wednesday.
The Trojans tallied a team score of 212 to breeze to a dual win over both Bremen, which recorded a 242, and Tippecanoe Valley, which finished at the bottom of the pile with a 282.
Triton head coach Jack Carpenter said he expected his team to win the meet, and Wednesday's meet was more about his players' scores.
PLYMOUTH â€” The Rockies got off to a rocky start to the 2010 season.
Twice Plymouth gave up scores to Bremen and had to play catch-up in the first half of the two teams' opening game last Friday at the Rock.
Twice first-year quarterback Houston Hodges was picked off, and Plymouth's secondary got burned on 7-of-8 passing for 108 yards and a score by Bremen junior quarterback Nate Leeper and the Lions' newly-installed pro style offense in the first half.
As Week 2 of the 2010 football season gets underway, several area teams are looking to carry momentum forward with them.
John Glenn claimed a lopsided reprisal victory over former sectional rival North Judson at home last week and hopes to open its Northern State Conference schedule with a win over perennial NSC powerhouse Jimtown today.
