Comeback kid: Plymouth’s Ed Johnson fights to keep his MMA dreams alive

January 25, 2012

PLYMOUTH — Ed Johnson found Mixed Martial Arts as a way to cope with the pain of his father’s loss.
The sport that started as an outlet quickly became a passion, but when he awoke one morning to discover two herniated lumbar discs 10 months ago, he thought he might have to give up that passion forever.
Fortunately for Johnson, that’s not the case.
After a tough and uncertain rehabilitation, the 20-year-old Plymouth High School graduate will make his return to the cage April 7 in a 155-pound bout at the Century Center.

New exhibit coming in February for Heartland Artists Gallery

January 25, 2012

PLYMOUTH — Elkhart-based painter Michael Janowski’s work will be on display in February at the Heartland Artists Gallery in downtown Plymouth. Janowski, who initially started in art with drawing, said that he enjoys realistically depicting textures and fine detail with pastels.
“I could sit for hours upon end painting and not realize the time," said Janowski. "For me, the most time consuming part of the painting process is in the initial composition, not the painting.”

January 25, 2012

PLYMOUTH — City Engineer Rick Gaul received several compliments on his work for the City during a council meeting this week.
Gaul had given members of the board end-of-year –report that showed a total of 2,463 hours that he had worked. Although not on the Public Works Board, Council Member Mike Delp asked if he could address the report.
Delp said, "I’m not complaining."
He then said the number of hours worked was up from 2,080 in the year before.
“There are 300 plus hours that you essentially donated,” Delp said.
Gaul is a salaried employee and does not qualify for overtime pay.
