He had recently moved to Kingston at Dupont â€” Memory Care Unit in Fort Wayne.

PLYMOUTH â€” Grovertown resident Yvonne Daley, a Head Start teacher, knew she had to do something about the pain in her knees in 2009. She had been taking anti-inflammatory medication and pain pills prescribed by her regular doctor for several years, but at that point there was nothing else he could do for her.
â€śThe pain just gradually got worse and worse,â€ť said Daley, adding that it was during a Cub Scout trip with her son that the pain became unbearable.
PLYMOUTH â€” Summer is in full swing, and so is business at the Plymouth Farmersâ€™ Market.
An average of 30 venders set up their wares on the corner of Garro and River street each Saturday morning, with offerings such as produce, meat, plants, baked goods, and natural handmade crafts. Bob Yoder, of the Marshall County Purdue Extension, said that the farmerâ€™s market could appeal especially to those interested in organically grown food.
PLYMOUTH â€” A unified county dispatch center for all emergency personnel will be the study of a joint committee in Marshall County.
The Marshall County Council started the ball rolling on the project after hearing from Marshall County Sheriff Tom Chamberlin and City of Plymouth Mayor Mark Senter. Chamberlin was before the Council to discuss funding possibilities to make up shortfalls in the counties 911 and dispatch budgets.
ARGOS â€” Edie Hastings, recently retired JESSE teacher at Argos Elementary, always knew she wanted to teach, but it wasnâ€™t until college that she decided on special education.
Hastings was working a summer job with the Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) in Chicago when she witnessed volunteers working with handicapped children. Hastings knew that was something she wanted to do, and switched her major that fall from elementary education to special education. Hastings retired this spring from teaching after 25 years of teaching through JESSE, at Argos Elementary and six other locations.
WASHINGTON (AP) â€” With pressure continuing to build but no breakthroughs in sight, budget bargaining between President Barack Obama and top lawmakers resumes Monday at the White House, with both sides hoping to slash the deficit as the price for permitting the government to borrow more than $2 trillion to pay its bills.
PLYMOUTH â€” LaVilleâ€™s Lauren Read won her fifth Marshall County Junior Golf Tour event of the year with a 58 atop the Girls 12-14 division as a total of 71 golfers in eight boys and girls divisions participated at Tri-Way Golf Course Friday.
LaVilleâ€™s Zach Gurtner shot a 1-over-par 36 on the front side at Tri-Way on his way to a winning 74 for the Boys 15-16 division championship, and Plymouthâ€™s Amanda McPherron won the Girls 15-17 division with a score of 79, three stokes ahead of the rest of the field.
Another big race, another big victory for Plymouth grad Morgan Uceny.
And now, the rest of the world is taking notice.
On Sunday, Uceny clocked 4:05.64 to win the womenâ€™s 1500-meter run at a Diamond League track meet in Birmingham, England.
