PLYMOUTH â€” Each year the Marshall County Sheriff issues his â€śCommissary Reportâ€ť to the County Commissioners and County Council to show the intake and disbursement of funds from the Sheriffâ€™s Commissary Fund.
The Commissary is a place where prisoners can purchase personal items as well as things such as candy bars. Below is a summary of outgoing Sheriff Jon VanVactorâ€™s report for July to December of 2010.
The fund showed a balance of $23,686 on June 30 of this year.
BREMEN â€” For some aging members of the Bremen community, the Bremen Senior Center has become an affordable and comfortable housing option.
The property, on the northwest corner of Plymouth and Market streets, has had numerous faces over the years. Once a bank, it later became a hotel, which deteriorated into one of the more notorious locations in the area.
MIDDLEBURY â€” In the middle of the Northern Lakes Conference field, Plymouth has had to fight tooth-and-nail for two of its three NLC victories this season, and the road didnâ€™t get much easier against a talented field at Thursdayâ€™s conference championship prelims.
The Lady Pilgrims were sitting at an even 3-3 in the conference heading into Thursdayâ€™s meet after a dominant 109-74 win over NorthWood and close victories against Wawasee and Goshen.
HAMLET â€” Oregon-Davis junior point guard Zach Richie waited for the game to come to him Thursday against Argos.
And when it did, he latched on and never relinquished control.
After distributing the ball for four assists in the first half, Richie, the stateâ€™s leading scorer, exploded for 35 of his game-high 47 points in the second half â€” 22 in the fourth quarter alone â€” to lead the Bobcats to an 80-74 boys hoops win over the Dragons at The Den.
CULVER â€” The awards continued pouring in for Culver Girls Academy senior Waverly Neer as she was named the Gatorade/ESPN RISE Indiana Girls Cross Country Runner of the Year a second straight year Thursday.
The award, now in its 26th year, recognizes outstanding athletic excellence, high standards of academic achievement and exemplary character demonstrated on and off the race course. As a state runner of the year, Neer is now a finalist for the prestigious Gatorade National Girls Cross Country Runner of the Year award to be announced later this month.
