PLYMOUTH â€” City council members voted this week to enter into an agreement with DC Tech Solutions, LLC, a Plymouth company.
DC Tech will provide high-speed Internet service to city departments in exchange for being allowed to place its equipment on Plymouthâ€™s two water towers and on top of the fire department. In addition, DC Tech will supply free wireless Internet service to the downtown area, a $5,000 value.
â€śThere arenâ€™t many towns our size offering free wireless downtown,â€ť said councilman Mark Neidig during the meeting. â€śFor tourism, and for downtown residents, itâ€™s a good asset.â€ť
PLYMOUTH â€” If you are a golfer with some skills, you could be driving a new car home courtesy of the areaâ€™s Youth For Christ ministry.
YFC will hold its annual golf outing fundraiser at the Plymouth Country Club Thursday, June 23 â€” and thanks to some help from local businesses, two lucky golfers could have a new ride home.
â€śSomebody is definitely going to be driving a car home courtesy of the Auto Park,â€ť said Bob Beck, leader of YFC. â€śAuto Park will give away a car for the golfer that is closest to the pin. Oliver Ford will be giving away a truck for a golfer who hits a hole-in-one.â€ť
PLYMOUTH â€”Eleven-year-old Destiny Cartwrightâ€™s house was a hub of excitement Wednesday afternoon, as family and friends waited anxiously to witness the completion of a project close to their hearts.
At 2 p.m., Destiny would be able to see her new bedroom, built by the Plymouth Kiwanis and decorated by the Make-A-Wish foundation.
â€śThis was her first wish, to have this done,â€ť said local Make-A-Wish volunteer Lori Parrish, of Argos.
If Lake Maxinkuckee looks especially picturesque this weekend due to a swath of graceful sails on its waters, that's because Culver is hosting the 2011 C Scow National Championship Regatta from June 17 through 19. And one of the people behind the event, Culver's own Ed Furry, says that's good news for the whole community -- and he hopes the whole community will take part in the festivities.
"We'll probably have 60 or 70 boats, each with a two or three-person crew," he says. "We'll be bringing a few hundred people to Culver to support the restaurants and businesses."
PLYMOUTH â€” John Scott assumed it was just a weather delay.
The Plymouth Post 27 announcer and assistant coach was following the teamâ€™s game at Logansport Post 60/418 online last Friday when the feed stopped. But what Scott thought was only bad weather turned out to be something far worse.
