ARGOS â€”Â As July rolls in, there is one thing you can count on in Indiana (besides more rain) â€” county fairs.
Marshall County is no different, offering fair goers an opportunity to overeat, attend livestock shows, view all of Marshall County 4-H membersâ€™ spectacular projects, and much more. Though the fair schedules are available for pick-up in the Extension Office, around Marshall County businesses, and online at www.ag.purdue.edu/counties/marshall, we thought we would give you a sneak peak on the fun that will be happening July 10 to 16 at the 4-H Fairgrounds in Argos.
PLYMOUTH â€” New flood plain maps for Plymouth are scheduled to go into effect November 16, according to Keith Hammond, building commissioner, at the city council meeting Monday.

â€śWe are going to have more areas that are considered flood plains than before,â€ť said Hammond later, adding that building on these areas comes with special regulations.
