Easy budget hearings lead to hard choices

September 13, 2011

PLYMOUTH — After a relatively quick and painless hearing process on the 2012 budget, the Marshall County Council found itself in a unique position for budget adoption — room to maneuver.

Triton takes NSC lead with 3-2 win over Bremen

September 13, 2011

BOURBON — With three match points already in the bank, Triton head coach Allen Peckham decided to play it safe.
Jackson Downing and Wil Rettinger had already secured their three-set victory over Bremen’s Joe Zeltwanger and Nate Strehler 6-4, 4-6, 6-2 at 2 doubles, and with Austin Kanarr ailing with a leg injury and a busy stretch of conference matches on the horizon, Peckham called the No. 1 doubles match.
The forfeit had no affect on the outcome of the team result, however, as Downing’s and Rettinger’s victory sewed up a 3-2 NSC win for Triton over visiting Bremen Monday in Bourbon.
