PLYMOUTH â€” Steve Carell is one of the hottest names in Hollywood right now, and a local actor will have a chance to share that â€śpersonaâ€ť in an upcoming film.
PLYMOUTH â€” In a game between two young teams struggling to find wins, it was the Lady Pilgrims who finally found one.
Plymouth outlasted John Glenn with a 10-5 fourth quarter at the tail end of a game that featured four lead changes and two ties to snap a six-game skid and earn a much-needed 36-32 victory over the visiting Falcons at The Rock Tuesday.
BREMEN â€” Bremen leading scorer Ethan Pike played four quarters and two overtime periods without a single field goal Tuesday against Argos.
His work at the free-throw line, though, made all the difference.
Pike snapped a 41-all deadlock with a pair of free throws with 1:10 left in the second extra set and the Lionsâ€™ boys basketball team held on for a 44-41 double-overtime win over the Dragons.
CULVER â€”Â The Culver Cavaliers lost a heartbreaking match up against Winamac Tuesday night, taking their first loss of the season 47-40.
The Cavs (5-1) won the tip-off but Zach Shidler of Winamac stole the ball right back on the first possession, leading to the Warriors (4-1) putting up the first two points of the game. The Warriors went on to score 16 points in the first quarter, highlighted by 3-point buckets from Bryan McKinney and Kyle Krohn, who co-led Winamac as two of three players with 13 points for the night, along with Shidler.

PLYMOUTH â€” Updated wiring for the elevators and new automatic doors may be in store for the Marshall County Building, if the funds needed are approved.
During the county council meeting Monday, Rich Ulrich, maintenance director, brought up the need for the two elevators in the county building to be updated.
It was a fitting time to discuss the problem, since one of the elevators was again out of commission â€” blocked off by caution tape and a trash can.
â€śAs we sit here, that elevator is out of service for the 28th time in the last 10 weeks,â€ť said Ulrich.
