Dispatcher teams with dad for an eventful birth

May 3, 2011

PLYMOUTH — There is one more happy ending in Marshall County thanks to the quick actions of a Marshall County 9-1-1 Dispatcher and a very scared but level-headed new dad.
Two weeks ago at 5:19 a.m. John Rowe called 9-1-1 from his truck saying that he was on the way to the hospital for the birth of his son. He didn’t think mom Alicia was going to wait for the delivery room. Dispatcher Jill Middaugh — a 16 year veteran of Marshall County 9-1-1 — was able to convince John to pull off to the side of the road and deliver the baby himself.

Falcons repeat at Lancer Relays

May 3, 2011

LAKEVILLE — Sitting out with a broken arm, Mike Childs could do little but cheer his teammates on to the title at last year’s Lancer Relays.
Not to worry.
The John Glenn senior sprinter made up for lost time Monday, powering the Falcons to four wins on the night and a sixth straight title at the LaVille relay meet.
“It’s the best feeling in the world,” said a smiling Childs. “It was the worst last year; I had to sit on the sidelines and just watch and cheer on my teammates and now I’m able to help them out and do everything I could to help them get the victory. It feels awesome.”

Gladie's Deli headed east, will incorporate bakery offerings

May 3, 2011

A little over three years ago, Lee Willhite and family opened Gladie’s Deli in downtown Culver. Now the restaurant is moving closer to home for Willhite, but also hopefully closer to where traffic from Culverites and visitors flows: 415 Lake Shore Drive, just a block west of the town park and public beach (on the east end of the building perhaps best known as the former home of City Tavern/Diner), and literally right across the street from the Willhite family’s home.
