BOURBON â€” Kyra Hackworth is one of those people who canâ€™t take no for an answer.
The young student at Triton hasnâ€™t allowed a car accident that took use of her legs away from her to stop her from doing things she wants to do. With the encouragement of her physical therapist at St. Joseph Regional Medical Center/Plymouth, Eric Holsopple, Kyra participated in this yearâ€™s Bluebarry Stomp for the first time.
PLYMOUTH â€” While budget adoption lay in wait, the Marshall County Council had regular business to conduct and part of that was finding money to pay for the new Pioneer Drive.
The project is being built with a 80/20 match from federal funds administered by the Indiana Department of Transportation. Marshall County Highway Superintendent Neal Haeck came before the Council with several transfers of funds from his department to pay the bills. In the arrangement, the county pays for bills up front with reimbursement coming from INDOT.
PLYMOUTH â€” Members of the Marshall County Council had their pencils sharpened but they didnâ€™t have to dig too deep to find the cuts necessary to meet budget goals for the coming year.
The projected final budget for Marshall County will be $10,594,073. The Marshall County Commissioners had requested that the Council not cut the budget below $10.3 million so as not to affect the tax rate for the county.
