A month can change your life! United Wayâ€™s Money Smart Week is set for Oct. 17 to 23.
To get ready, I, along with 10 of your Marshall County neighbors, have committed ourselves to the Money Smart Challenge, a month-long financial fast.
Our brave participants include Tim and Patty Grace, Howard and Erin Berkeypile, Tim and Angie Eads, Wendy Holloway, Sarah Hendrix, Sara Hill, and Sam Erwin. Throughout the month of September, we will report on our progress, successes, and lessons in this weekly column. You can participate along with us and share your ideas for saving some cash!
PLYMOUTH â€” A Plymouth group will take the opportunity of the 9/11 anniversary to celebrate their first â€śPatriot Day.â€ť
The Plymouth Phi Delts are inviting the community to come and honor patriots who have given their lives for their country with an evening of activities that will begin with a ride and ceremony at Oak Hill Cemetery in Plymouth.
PLYMOUTH â€” Argos only registered six shots on goal, but that was more than enough.
The Dragons scored at a 50 percent clip, finding the back of the net three times and played determined defense during a key stanza at the end of the first half, shutting out Plymouth for a 3-0 victory in a reprisal for a pair of 2009 losses against the Sectional 19 rival Rockies Wednesday at Kindt Field.
PLYMOUTH â€” In some ways it will be a week of recovery for the Plymouth Rockies and their head coach.
A week of upheaval ended in a victory over conference foe Warsaw. The team knew it would be without head coach John Barron on the sideline last Friday. Nobody expected what would actually happen.
BOURBON â€” If Northern State Conference victories weren't enough, a couple of area teams have extra incentives to get a win this weekend.
For Triton that means beating Bremen on the Trojansâ€™ home field for the first time in well over a decade.
PLYMOUTH â€” Itâ€™s been nine years since the north tower of the World Trade Center was hit by the first of the hijacked airliners, American Flight 11, but Mike Bergman, 63, a graduate of Plymouth High School, class of 1965, thinks about it every single day.
â€śAmerica will never be the same,â€ť he said.
Mike Bergman will never be the same either. The threat of another high-profile terrorism attack is constantly on his mind.
LAKEVILLE â€” Newton Farms spent Monday helping some National Guards-men make the world a little better place.
Starting at 8 a.m. 13 members of the 3-19th ADT â€“ a National Guard Team scheduled for deployment in Afghanistan â€“ became goat farmers for the day at Newton Farms. Their education, under the expert guidance of Jerry Gorka, Farm Manager for Newton Farms, was to let the Guardsmen gain some experience into the life of a goat farmer.
PLYMOUTH â€” Itâ€™s full steam ahead on the new Pioneer Drive that will connect S.R. 17 and U.S. 30 sometime next year.
â€śWeâ€™re progressing quite well right now,â€ť said Ron Wireman, Construction Engineer on the project for the county. â€śWe kept the rain away for awhile and we were able to make some great progress.â€ť
