PLYMOUTH â€” Jennifer Trump recently moved to Plymouth in search of one thing â€” a bigger kitchen.
â€śI needed a bigger kitchen so I could make my olive oils,â€ť said the former Argos resident, slightly breathless from waiting on customers in her booth at the Marshall County Blueberry Festival Saturday afternoon.
Trump started making her own olive oil six years ago, after her father contracted cancer and needed to eat more healthily.
PLYMOUTH â€” Saturday nightâ€™s severe thunderstorms caused the Blueberry Festival to be shut down about three hours earlier than normal closing time.
According to festival official Larry Faulstich, he and festival director Karen Oâ€™Neal made the decision to shut down the festival after a thunderstorm watch changed to a warning at about 6:30 p.m.
PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouth finished second place in the B Group at the Blueberry Festival Boys Soccer Tournament, missing the championship to Kankakee Valley on a score differential criterion Monday.
The Rockies beat South Bend Clay 3-0 Monday, while Kankakee Valley beat Lakeland Christian 6-4 to clinch the group championship. LaVille won the Group A championship, meanwhile, with victories over Culver Community, Mishawaka and Winamac, including the Lancersâ€™ 5-1 win over the Cavaliers Monday.
