PLYMOUTH âÂ As part of an effort to make sure their six-county area is covered, staff of the Food Bank of Northern Indiana recently began offering a mobile food pantry â bringing food to those that need it, right where they are.
âThis is a new program for us in 2012,â said Amanda Peterson, resource opportunity developer for the Food Bank of Northern Indiana. âWe are trying to reach out to each county first, then individual cities. We are planning to do a mobile pantry in Marshall County once a month.â
Listeners can enjoy music from Chad Van Herk Saturday, May 5 from 2-4 p.m. at the Young Amphitheater in Plymouthâs Centennial Park, cattycorner from the High School. Chad has organized this live performance to raise monies for the Ingram family whose youngest son Trek Atlas has been diagnosed with Niemann Pick Type A, a frustratingly rare, incurable genetic disease which claims the life of those who are so-diagnosed by the age of three.
PLYMOUTH â Thanks to an alleged âprogramming errorâ at the Indiana Department of Revenue, Marshall County is being reimbursed today for money it should have received over the last two years, in the tune of $1.4 million. Although the amount is not as dramatic as other Indiana counties â Marion County, for example, will be reimbursed $33 million âÂ itâs all relative when the county population is taken into consideration, said Marshall County auditor Penny Lukenbill.
âThe $1.4 million to us means as much as the $33 million does for Marion County,â said Lukenbill.
PLYMOUTH âÂ South Bend Riley pitcher Jackie Logsdon had something that the Plymouth Lady Pilgrim softball team hadnât seen much of only three games into the season â a change-up.
The Wildcat right-hander used the pitch early and often in the game en route to a three-hit, nine-strikeout performance and a 7-0 shutout against the host Lady Pilgrims Monday night.
LAKEVILLE â Talk about helping your own cause.
LaVille pitcher Justin Bakerâs two-run shot straight out to center in the bottom of the sixth tied the game at 9-all, and his walk-off RBI single into the gap at short in the seventh earned him the win on the mound as the Lancers rallied past visiting Bethany Christian 10-9 at home Monday.
Triton falls short at Tippy Valley
Triton scratched out four runs in the top of the seventh, but it wasnât enough as the Trojans lost a 13-12 heartbreaker to host Tippecanoe Valley Monday.
Bryson Mosier doubled and scored two runs for Triton. Tippy Valley recorded five triples and two doubles en route to the win.
Triton falls to 2-3 on the year.

BREMEN â Birds and Birdies abound at Sprig Oâ Mint Golf Course in Bremen. Well, birds anyway. Birdiesâ1 shot under parâdepend 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 birdhousesâ16 bluebird houses and four duck houses, to be exact. He then erected the houses along the fairways of the golf course.
PLYMOUTH âÂ If you hear gunshots this weekend, donât be alarmed: itâs just the Civil War encampment downtown. And if youâve ever wanted to learn how to throw a tomahawk, you might want to mosey on down and check out the âliving historyâ event sponsored by a partnership between the Marshall County Historical Museum, Encore Performing Arts, and area libraries.
âWe are trying to give everyone a sense of the life of the soldier,â said Anna Liechty, one of the organizers of the event.
