PLYMOUTH â While one Indiana law enforcement officer went on record to support the legalization of marijuana in the Hoosier state, Marshall County law enforcement officers arenât so sure.
Indiana State Police Superintendent Paul Whitesell told members of the State Budget Committee on Tuesday that he believes that â...it (marijuana usage) is here, itâs going to stay...If it were up to me I do believe I would legalize it and tax it.â
PLYMOUTH âÂ Plymouth coach Dave Duncan wanted to see his players to hit a couple points in the second half: Extend the defensive pressure to the 3-point line, get better ball movement against the Knox zone.
Once the Lady Pilgrims checked off those boxes, a 10-point game quickly developed into a rout.
Plymouth held the visiting Redskins to four points after the break while scoring at an efficient 10-of-21 clip from the field, and the Pilgrims stayed unbeaten with a lopsided 57-22 win at home at The Rock Wednesday.
LaVille tops Lions
LaVille won five matches by pinfall and claimed victories in nine weight classes as the Lancers handed visiting Bremen a 46-24 defeat at home Wednesday night.
Bryant Hunsberger, Mitchell Henry and Matthew Moore won consecutive matches by fall at 126, 132 and 138, respectively, while Nathan Slater and Austin Wilson also won by pinfall at 195 and heavyweight for the Lancers.
Bremenâs Cole Spaid and Alex Bollenbacher earned the Lions a pair of pinfall wins at 113 and 152 as the Lions earned wins in five bouts.
PLYMOUTH â The Ancilla College cheerleaders hosted a mini-camp Nov. 17, and the experience was deemed a success by the team.
The campers learned basic cheer skills which included chants, cheers and an eight-count dance. They were treated to a pizza lunch by Mancinoâs Pizza then performed during halftime of the womenâs basketball game later that day.
Police Thursday afternoon released the names of the the two Culver residents killed by gunshot in Culver last night.

BREMEN âÂ Albert R. âBusterâ Godbold, 86, of Bremen died Monday, Nov. 26, 2012 at his home.
PLYMOUTH â After Plymouthâs Tuesday night 63-43 win over Triton it was a tale of two coaches â one upset, one pleased â pretty much for the same reason.
âThe frustrating part is that we worked on it for quite awhile not dribbling right away, using pass fakes, simple things like that that I thought we didnât do,â said Triton boss Jason Groves. âI knew we would have some (turnovers), and I wanted to keep it to a minimum. It was frustrating the way we were turning it over. We didnât execute.â
WALKERTON â The Wildcats used their team speed to jump out to an early lead at John Glenn Tuesday. By the time the Falcons adjusted to the game tempo, it was already too late.
South Bend Riley used zone pressure both in the full- and the halfcourt to fluster Glennâs young players into early turnovers and utilized good team speed to create some transition buckets and grab a 17-4 lead at the first quarter break, stretching the gap to 22 points at the half.
ROCHESTER â The Lady Zebrasâ ability to hit free throws in the final quarter proved to be the difference as Rochester squeaked by Culver, 48-47.
Rochester was able to hit 11 of 14 from the line in the final quarter, and none bigger than junior Breanne Paulikâs two that put the Zebras up three with 25.3 seconds left to go in the game. Culver Junior Kayla Shaffer was able to hit a shot to bring the Cavaliers within one with 7 seconds left, but the Cavaliers were not able to get a foul called until only 0.2 was showing on the clock.
