PLYMOUTH â€” The annual Jefferson Jackson Democratic Dinner held Sunday night featured three speakers.
Speaking at the event were Brendan Mullen, 2nd Congressional District Democratic Candidate for U.S. House of Representatives; Nancy Dembowski, currently serving in the Indiana State House of Representatives; and Pete Buttigieg, Democratic candidate for Mayor of South Bend.
Mullen said, â€śWhat is needed is family, fellowship, hard work and service.â€ť
PLYMOUTH â€” Chilly weather complete with a downpour of rain on Saturday didnâ€™t keep 60 motorcycle riders from participating in the 4th Annual Ride for â€śShop with a Cop-Christmas for Kids.â€ť
The ride started at Young Amphitheatre in Plymouth and took riders to Rochester, Bass Lake and then back to the American Legion hall in Plymouth. Following the ride, a meal and auction were held as well.
One of the organizers, Jeff Stewart said, â€śWe canâ€™t thank the community enough for their support in monetary and gift donations.â€ť
Culver resident Jean Triplet may represent the last local link to the bygone days of small-town pharmacies, so well remembered by many here. After 49 years in the business, Triplet has retired from CVS Pharmacy in Culver, though her earliest years behind the drug-store counter were at beloved local pharmacy Mr. T's.
KENDALLVILLE â€” A trio of area golfers finished out their seasons as the weather nearly derailed the East Noble Girls Golf Regional Saturday.
Plymouthâ€™s Emily Berger shot a 98, while Tritonâ€™s Sydney Gochenour carded a 97, and Culver Girls Academyâ€™s Mackenzie Toth shot a 99 in the persistent drizzle at Noble Hawk.
Led by Heidi Morganthalerâ€™s round of 78, NorthWood found itself in contention to advance with a 368 as lightning delayed the regional tilt for several hours, and darkness eventually forced the suspension of play with several teams set to resume their rounds today.
PLYMOUTH â€” A penalty kick on a controversial call left Plymouth down two goals and chasing visiting Northridge, and the Rockies lost an eventual 5-1 Northern Lakes Conference decision to the Raiders at Kindt Soccerplex Saturday.
Plymouth went into the half trailing 1-0 after Steven Hooley scored on a Cameron Miller assist in the gameâ€™s 15th minute, but it was Millerâ€™s pk in the 43rd minute that put Plymouth into press mode, and Northridge capitalized with two more goals during an eight-minute span between the gameâ€™s 50th and 58th minutes to put the game out of reach.
John Glennâ€™s Josh Anderson rushed for 234 yards and five touchdowns in the Falconsâ€™ 48-21 victory over Culver Military Academy Friday at Glenn.
NorthWoodâ€™s Cynthia Medina won the girls closed race at the prestigious Culver Academies Cross Country Invitational Saturday with a time of 19:09.
