The festival is here!

September 2, 2010

PLYMOUTH — Welcome to the Department of Redundancy Department… You know the drill!
It is that time of year when carnival rides and car shows; parades and pageantry; funnel cakes and fireworks; bands and balloons are the words of the weekend. And I didn’t even mention blueberries!
This year’s festival theme is “School Spirit” honoring the excellent public and private schools throughout the county. You will see representatives from each corporation during the parade.
What not to miss:

Culver, Triton, LaVille, Bremen open NSC competition

September 2, 2010

BOURBON — As conference schedules open up around the state this week, Culver heads to sectional and Northern State Conference foe Triton on Friday.
The two teams have a strong rivalry going after a couple of close battles last season. Culver (2-0) won both contests, including a 20-13 victory that unseated reigning Sectional 33 champ Triton (1-1) in round two of the tourney last October.
Plenty of returning Trojans are bound to have a bitter taste left in their mouths over that result, and Culver head coach Andy Thomas is expecting another close fight this weekend.

Plymouth, Triton to try again another day

September 2, 2010

BOURBON — The Plymouth and Triton boys tennis teams couldn’t overcome Mother Nature Wednesday.
Ninety minutes in, rain put an end to the teams’ match. With both squads playing again Thursday, it was decided drying time would take too long, and the match was postponed to a later date.
“It’s hard to schedule a make-up once you get going in the season, but I know we’ll definitely try to get this one going again,” Triton coach Al Peckham said.

CULVER — Changes and additional details have been released about two films slated for the Lake Maxinkuckee Film Festival, which takes place at the Uptown Cinema on Lake Shore Drive (Friday evening and Saturday all day) and the Town Park (Saturday evening) Sept. 3 and 4.
