PLYMOUTH â€” A power outage that affected more than 7,500 NIPSCO customers in Plymouth alone has no explanation as of yet.
According to a representative from NIPSCO, the power went out in Plymouth around 3:15 and was out for most people for about 15 minutes.
There were reports of residents with REMC also reporting power outages throughout Marshall County from Culver to Bremen.
There were even reports of power outages in Starke County.
NIPSCO said it is currently investigating what caused the power outage.
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.
Argos eliminates Culver
Defending regional champion Argos kept Culver from registering a single shot on goal, and the Dragons eliminated host Culver at its home sectional in a 7-0 rout Monday night.
Damon Binkley and Dominic Cataldo each scored twice, while Zach Stockman scored once with an assist, and Chandler Campbell and Joseph Stone also scored goals in the win as Argos advanced to play Lakeland Christian in a semifinal Wednesday following a match-up between Bremen and Winamac.
Marshall Anderson recorded six saves in goal as the Cavaliers were outshot 13-0 in the closer.
