STARKE â€” The Starke County Treasurerâ€™s Office is closed until further notice.

MARSHALL CO. â€”Â The LaPaz Lions Club is hard at work on a project that was near and dear to two former Marshall County Historical Society board membersâ€™ hearts.
Elizabeth Marshall and Kathryn Weissert, who have both passed away, had focused for some time on erecting signs at the countyâ€™s unmarked cemeteries. Lions secretary and treasurer Don Balka said that for those looking for genealogy information, unmarked cemeteries can pose a real problem.
John Glennâ€™s Adam Dodson racked up 220 rushing yards with a touchdown and eight tackles as the Falcons beat Culver Military 35-14 in the two teamsâ€™ Sectional 17 opener Friday night.
Tritonâ€™s Shana Anderson put up a team-leading 31 kills with 19 digs in three matches as the Lady Trojans reached the sectional final for the first time since 2009 at the Class A Culver Sectional.
LAKEVILLE â€” For more than 70 minutes, Argos played with the No. 1 team in the state, but the Dragons fell short of handing Guerin Catholic its first loss in a 4-2 season-ending defeat at the LaVille Semistate Saturday morning.
ARGOS â€” The Argos girls soccer teamâ€™s tournament run came to an end Saturday with a 2-0 loss to Fort Wayne Bishop Luers in the opening round of the Class A Argos Semistate at Eugene Snyder Field.
CULVER â€” Heading into Saturdayâ€™s Culver Sectional championship match, Triton head coach Samantha Keel knew Marquetteâ€™s Zoya Ganz would be hard to handle.
The plan was to make the Blazers beat them with everyone else, but the sophomore outside hitter simply wouldnâ€™t be denied, pounding out kill after kill, and the Lady Trojans fell in three games, 25-14, 25-20, 25-14.
NEW CARLISLE â€” As long as an athlete gives his best effort, thereâ€™s not much more a coach can ask.
And since â€” realistically â€” neither Plymouth nor Culver Academies had cross country teams that expected to reach the state finals, Saturdayâ€™s IHSAA semistate at New Prairie was a chance to finish the season on a high note.
Or, at least, try to.
â€śEverybody ran reasonably well,â€ť said Eagles coach Mike Chastain following the 5,000-meter tournament in New Carlisle. â€śOur job (next year) will be to improve. Thatâ€™s what we will work on.â€ť
