The Bremen Police Department is used to trading in its used vehicles for new ones, which it will soon do with two within its six-vehicle fleet. However, it isn't accustomed to the simultaneous staff turnover it currently faces.
Dispatcher Laverne Replogle retired Feb. 17 after 17 years between the BPD and the Marshall County Sheriff's Department 911 center. Barb Capron, the department's dispatch supervisor, will retire Feb. 28 after 28 years of service.
Capron's position will be filled in-house by Melinda Daily, a radio operator of 23 years who will move from Class B to Class A.
WARSAW â The host Tigers put themselves in position to win their third straight sectional championships with a dominant 21 top-six berths, while Culver Military Academy earned 12 top-six spots and Plymouth grabbed four at the preliminary round of the 11-team Warsaw Boys Swim Sectional Thursday.
âAs far as times, with the exception of one swim the boys all swam lifetime bests,â said Culver Military head boys swim coach Tom Duckett.
CULVER â Culver Communityâs upperclassmen delivered on Senior Night, with a little help from a couple of younger guys.

Culverâs all-senior starting lineup â Bauer, Larry Clingler, AJ Neace, Patrick McBee and Scotty Brown â tallied seven straight points to tip off the contest and led wire to wire.
Two Culver children will be heading to Disney World this month thanks in large measure to the efforts of Culver High Schoolâs Student Council and its ccordinator, Tina Stacy.
