PLYMOUTH â Itâs been a while â two years to be exact.
Wawaseeâs Warriors put an end to a remarkable streak for Plymouthâs Rockies Friday night with a 27-17 win at Plymouth. The last team to beat Plymouth in a regular-season game was NorthWood in the final game of the 2007 season. The last time the Rockies lost at home was to Rochester, in the second game of that same season.
It appeared that maybe the Rockies would be on their way to a third straight thrilling come-from-behind win, with Brock Smith playing Superman, but it was not to be.
LAKEVILLE â During a meeting last night, the Union-North School Board approved the awarding of bids for the LaVille Elementary School project.
Bonds for the $4.2 million project will be offered for sale today.
Superintendent Terry Bar-ker made the recommendation to hold the project at the $4.2 million cost, but did indicate that there were other improvements that could have been made within the project.
PLYMOUTH â One local couple is making an investment in the future of the community.
Paul and Carol Nye, working with the Marshall County Community Foundation, have set up a special fund to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Marshall County. The Pendergast, Rosander, Nye Fund will help the club for years to come.
âThe whole reason for us doing this is the Boys & Girls Club,â said Carol. âWe feel the Club is so important to the community and thatâs why weâre here, to give back to the community.â
WALKERTON â They say school can be fun, but at John Glenn this weekend it is literally a carnival.
The school will be celebrating its second Fall-O-Ween Fest with rides, games, food and concerts all to raise money for scholarships and the non-profit organizations helping with the event. The fun kicks off at 5 p.m. Friday, and runs through 5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 26, at John Glenn High School, Walkerton.
Last year $12,000 in scholarships went to 16 John Glenn graduating seniors.
