Last Saturdayâ€™s annual meeting of the Antiquarian and Historical Society of Culver seemed fitting on a number of levels. First, it was held in the very cottage (formerly the Shirk-Robinson cottage, today the Bramfeld, and once the summertime â€śhomeâ€ť of composer Cole Porter as a youth) on whose porch the organization first formed, 20 years ago on the east shore of Lake Maxinkuckee, in the summer of 1991.
PLYMOUTH â€” After spending more than 30 years teaching, Jim and Linda Keister of Plymouth find that they have a busy social season.
â€śWe get invited to a lot of open houses,â€ť said Jim, smiling.
The couple met when they were both teaching at Webster Elementary School in Plymouth, where Linda spent 22 years, and Jim 28 years before moving on to Riverside Elementary.
A twist in Lindaâ€™s career came in 1987, when she prepared to return to teaching after a six-year break to have children. While she was gone, computers had been put into the school.
PLYMOUTH â€” The Marshall County 4-H Drill Team will be honoring the men and women of the Armed Forces Sunday, July 10 at 7 p.m.
The team lead by Harry Eskridge has been using the opportunity to open the county fair with their patriotic ceremony since 2002.
In addition to the Drill Team equestrian performance, the ceremony will include an honor guard from Grissom Air Force Base, a flyover escorted by Tom Flynn, the North Judson American Legion, the Plymouth National Guard, and the Culver Pipe and Drums.
ARGOS â€” Plymouth policeman John Wier and his K-9, Rex, have been working together for 4 1/2 years.
â€śI love watching him work â€” itâ€™s fun watching him find drugs or find the bad guy,â€ť said Wier.
Wier and Rex will be at the Marshall County 4-H fair Tuesday, along with Indiana State patrolman Ryan Lebow and his K-9, Bosco. Together, the dogs will demonstrate how K-9s can sniff out drugs in a car, chase down criminals, or aid in extracting unwilling people from a vehicle. According to Wier, itâ€™s all fun and games to the dogs.
