Mary Beth Harnessâ€™ retirement may have taken place in much the same manner as her more than 35 years of teaching art at Culver Community High School: quietly, but with significant and lasting impact.
Harness said farewell to the school on the final day of classes last Thursday, ending a career here she began in 1974, just six years after the school opened in its present location.
BOURBON â€” A small group of teachers, parents, and kids gathered at 8 a.m. Saturday outside Triton Elementary School.
Their goal was simple â€” spruce up the school. As the sun grew hotter, the group spilt up to cover two different areas: landscaping in the front of the building, and renovating the playground in the back.
â€śIt already looks so much better,â€ť said mom Monica Best, waving her hand at the see-saws that were being painted bright blue â€” a big improvement from their earlier chipped state.
PLYMOUTH â€” Former Plymouth Mayor James E. Yeazel, 83, died suddenly after experiencing a heart attack at his home Saturday evening.
Yeazel will be remembered as a friend by many in the community. His love of Plymouth was unequaled and his hand of friendship was always extended to everyone he met.
Yeazel served as the mayor of Plymouth from 2000 to 2003. Within only a few months of finishing his term as mayor, health concerns forced him to resign. His wife Bonnie was appointed in September of 2003 to complete the term that ended on December 31.
ARGOS â€” A simple informational presentation turned into ground for heated discussion Thursday in the Argos High School gym.
Next Era Energy, a Fortune 200 company based in Florida, held an open house in the gym to inform area residents about the proposed wind turbine park in Marshall and Fulton counties. Energy from wind turbines is renewable, produces no pollution, uses no water, and is compatible with farming. Representatives from the company were taken aback, however, when a couple from Illinois arrived at the event and began asking questions.
