ETNA GREEN â€” A 13-year-old Etna Green boy lost his life Saturday morning as a result of a tragic accident that took place on his familyâ€™s farm.
Wyman Lynn Miller, an eighth grade student at Triton Jr.-Sr. High School, went out at about 6 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 28 to gather 14 horses, most of them Belgian Draft horses, from a wooded area behind the family farm at 8409 West, CR 750 North to send them back to the barn to be fed.
He brought back four of them but when he didnâ€™t return with more, his brothers went to look for him and found him unconcious.

Jimmies rally past Glenn
Charles Dreesen kicked a 31-yard field goal with just 5 seconds remaining before halftime, and the Falcons held Jimtown scoreless for three quarters, but the Jimmies scored twice in the fourth frame, and John Glenn fell 14-3 in its Northern State Conference opener at Jimtown Friday.
The Falcons managed only 94 net rushing yards and only 206 total offensive yards at the game. Josh Anderson led the Falcons in rushing with 84 yards in 20 carries, while Collin Howard had 23 yards in 14 rushes.
ROCHESTER â€” You know itâ€™s likely to be a good night when your defense can score touchdowns. Plymouthâ€™s Rockies got two scores from their defense, on the way to a 48-7 win over Rochester in their first road test of the new season.
Plymouth got a 37-yard interception return for six from Brock Smith in the third quarter, but the big rumble was a 20-yard strip and score from defensive tackle Damon Howe almost before the fans had settled into their chairs. Howe stripped the ball from Zebra running back Nate Bashamâ€™s arms and without breaking stride took it to the house.
LAKEVILLE â€” LaVille football head coach Brian Stultz and his staff spied something while watching Lake Station game film.
The Lancers converted that discovery into a 63-yard play action touchdown strike from quarterback Rod Bettcher to wide receiver Codee Kimbel on the night's first play from scrimmage, setting the stage for a not-as-close-as-the-score-looks 41-18 win over the visiting Eagles at Lancer Field Friday.
CULVER â€” With three fullbacks sidelined with injuries, Culver Community had to improvise.
When the Cavaliers couldn't seem to move the ball on the ground, sophomore quarterback Collin Stevens took to the air, connecting with receivers at a 10-for-19 rate with two touchdowns and a pick.
South Central had a chance to tie it up after an 8-yard touchdown plunge by Devin Wiltse with 2:10 remaining on the game clock, but the Satellites' two-point conversion gamble on a flea-flicker play failed, and the home team survived 21-20 at Culver Friday.
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.
