BREMEN â€“ Birds and Birdies abound at Sprig Oâ€™ Mint Golf Course in Bremen. Well, birds anyway. Birdiesâ€”1 shot under parâ€”depend upon the golfer.
The birds, however, have been a winter ecological project of Brian Feldman, Golf Course Superintendent. In addition to his maintenance and planning duties during the off season, Feldman has busied himself building wooden birdhousesâ€”16 bluebird houses and four duck houses, to be exact. He then erected the houses along the fairways of the golf course.
PLYMOUTH â€”Â If you hear gunshots this weekend, donâ€™t be alarmed: itâ€™s just the Civil War encampment downtown. And if youâ€™ve ever wanted to learn how to throw a tomahawk, you might want to mosey on down and check out the â€śliving historyâ€ť event sponsored by a partnership between the Marshall County Historical Museum, Encore Performing Arts, and area libraries.
â€śWe are trying to give everyone a sense of the life of the soldier,â€ť said Anna Liechty, one of the organizers of the event.
