CULVER â€” Fans of the Maxinkuckee Players' show from years past, â€śNunsense,â€ť will be interested in the group's brand new show for this summerâ€”â€ťNunsense: The Mega-Musical,â€ť written by Dan Goggin.
â€śIt's the same as the original (Nunsense), but with a larger cast,â€ť said director Becky Liechty. â€śWe have three returning cast members, Andrea Mallory as Reverend Mother, Kathy Overmeyer as Sister Mary Amnesia, and Kerri Bash as Sister Robert Ann.â€ť
PLYMOUTH â€” A strike that began last Thursday in parts of Northern Indiana reached Plymouth Tuesday. Construction workers who are members of the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 150, including those working on the Oak Road construction near Wal-Mart, halted work Tuesday morning. They will remain on the picket line â€śuntil they can settle,â€ť according to one worker Tuesday afternoon.
The workers held signs saying that they wanted better wages and working conditions, but the focus of the strike according to Local 150 is on keeping up with increasing healthcare costs.
PLYMOUTH â€” During the Marshall County council meeting Monday morning, Wes Burden from the health department informed the council that the state of Indiana is pushing county health departments to apply for Medicaid funding. As a result, the health department may begin charging an $8 administration fee for each vaccine given. The fee would go to pay for supplies that go along with administering shots, not for the actual vaccines themselves, which are provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and are federally funded.
FRANKLIN â€” Whatever happens next, it's already one for the history books.
