PLYMOUTH - Who owns the property under the bridges around the county became a question for the Marshall County Commissioners Monday morning.
John Childs came before the Commissioners to pose the question in response to activity on his property. Childs has an organic farm and owns the property around 14B and 14th Road in Marshall County which includes a bridge on the Yellow River. He told the Commissioners that he has no problem with people fishing on the property but has not allowed people to camp there, his objection being trash and campers using the area as a toilet.
PLYMOUTH â€” For anyone who doesnâ€™t think the postseason represents a clean slate, take the example of Plymouth versus NorthWood.
Coming off a lopsided 4-1 loss to the Panthers just last Tuesday, it would have been easy for the Rockies to sink to the level of a similar expectation in Mondayâ€™s sectional opener at Kindt Field. Instead, Alex Orellanaâ€™s penalty kick sealed Plymouth a 4-2 PK shootout edge, and the Rockies mauled him in a raucous celebration as they claimed a 2-1 win victory over their guests in a Class 2A Sectional 7 thriller.
DeMOTTE â€” The Argos girlsâ€™ soccer team got off to a strong sectional start Monday as the defending-champion Lady Dragons claimed a 7-0 rout over Kouts at the Class A Covenant Christian Sectional.
