PLYMOUTH - A local family will have a beloved member home for the holidays after a frightening encounter.
It was a normal morning for Jessica Groves and her husband up at 3 a.m. for work and as they do every day they let the family dog Maggie - a miniature schnauzer - outside. While Maggie normally comes back inside just a few minutes later, this particular morning it was nearly 4 a.m. and when she returned she was terribly injured and bleeding.

PLYMOUTH â€” â€śPeople show up at the games here they expect Plymouth to play a certain way,â€ť said Plymouth head basketball coach Ryan Bales. â€śOur crowd brought a little sixth man for us tonight. Hopefully they walk away tonight proud of our guys and proud of their effort.â€ť
Effort was the word for the week for Plymouth basketball as a disheartening loss last Friday turned into back-to-back wins â€” Wednesday night at Whitko and a big overtime win over Penn at home Thursday night, 66-62.
ARGOS â€” To hear John Glenn head coach Travis Hannah tell it, it wasnâ€™t so much his players who needed a win as the Falcons skipper himself.
Glenn rode senior shooter Nathan Stegemillerâ€™s hot hand to a 24-7 third quarter to take a 52-32 lead into the fourth quarter, then held off scrappy Argos to break into the win column in a long-awaited victory at Phil Weybright Gymnasium Thursday night, 61-49.
WALKERTON â€” John Glennâ€™s girls basketball team kicked up its five-week-old winning streak another notch Thursday.
The Lady Falcons, who claimed a combined seven wins over the previous two seasons, snared their 10th straight victory with a 53-44 Senior Night win over a quick, physical South Bend Adams squad at The Aerie.
Bethany beats Bremen
Bethany Christian outscored host Bremen 31-20 in the second half to rally back from a tenuous one-point deficit at the half, and the Lady Bruins earned their third straight win with a 52-42 victory over the host Lady Lions Thursday night.
Bremen was led by Sara Slabaughâ€™s nine points just six days after the junior guard dropped 26 in the Lionsâ€™ first win of the year versus Knox last Friday.
Megan Stouder and Ashley Lucchese each finished with eight in the loss, which drops Bremen to 1-10.
