PLYMOUTH â€” Mary Beth Listenberger remembers participating in the Kiddieâ€™s Day parade when she was young with her cousins. Now she is helping to organize the event as part of Plymouthâ€™s second Friday festivities downtown.

PLYMOUTH â€”Â A multi-county, multi-police department car chase Sunday afternoon left a Plymouth Police Department squad car totaled and the subject of the pursuit behind bars.
The chase, which started near Martin's Super Market in Plymouth in response to a shoplifter, ended when suspect William Thomas Parks, 49, unknown address, rammed a PPD squad car driven by Cpl. Ray West. West received only minor injuries.
PLYMOUTH â€” For several months now, residents of Marshall County have been aware that beginning July 1, insured individuals (including children) will no longer be vaccinated by their local health department. This guideline was to bring local health departments into compliance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) requirements. On June 30, the day before the change was to go into effect, the Marshall County Health Department received notification that the changes would be postponed until January 2012.
PLYMOUTH â€”Â Plymouth Post 27 celebrated the Fourth of July with a runner-up finish at the teamâ€™s first annual Patriot Tournament.
