PLYMOUTH â€”Â A fundraising dinner and auction is planned for Thursday evening to benefit Operation Quiet Comfort, a non-profit organization dedicated to sending care packages to injured soldiers overseas.
"We hear about (soldiers) who are killed, but we don't hear about the ones who are injured every day," said organizer Jan Houin. "OQC strives to send an extra measure of comfort to injured soldiers."
PLYMOUTH â€”Â Two inmates of the Marshall County Jail have filed suit against the jail over what they claim is a violation of their civil rights.
A new â€śpostcard policyâ€ť began at the jail April 1, prohibiting inmates from receiving letters in envelopes from their friends and family. Instead, those incarcerated must be satisfied with postcards. The reason for the change, according to Marshall County Sheriff Tom Chamberlin, is that several letters have been sent to the jail containing dangerous or illegal contraband.
BOURBON â€” With a young lineup and a roster full of injuries, Triton has sometimes had trouble fielding the ball this season.
Luckily for the Lady Trojans, theyâ€™ve been able to make up for it at the plate.

PLYMOUTH â€” The Plymouth softball team didnâ€™t have any problems hitting the ball in the conference opener last night; it was when the hits came that caused the problems.
