PLYMOUTH â Plymouth residents may be familiar with Oliver Fordâs âDrive One 4 YOUR Schoolâ fundraising events, but this Saturdayâs proceedings will be a little different.
âDrive Smart for Your Schoolâ will feature Lincoln cars, with money from test drives going toward the Plymouth School of Inquiry, Plymouth High Schoolâs New Tech school opening this fall. For each person that test drives one of the cars, $20 will be donated to the school by Lincoln. Oliver Ford plans to match this, making a total donation of $40 per test drive.

Herbster powers LaVille past Triton
LaVille jumped out to a 4-0 lead then rallied back from a 6-4 deficit with three runs in the fifth and sixth innings in a 10-7 defeat of visiting Triton Monday.
Quentin Herbster went 4-for-4 with two RBI and scored three runs, and Justin Baker and Trenton Priser both doubled for LaVille, which moved to 2-2 in the Northern State Conference and 5-6 overall.
Zak Shively took the loss on the mound relieving Bryson Mosier in the fifth of the error-filled contest, which featured a combined 10 miscues by both teams.

PLYMOUTH âÂ Pending the Board of Public Works and Safety approval of the Delmonte request to work in the right of way today, Western Avenue, Plymouth will be closed Tuesday April 24 through Sunday, April 29. The closure is needed to repair the two Western Avenue railroad crossings just north of North Street. The industrial park will be serviced by traveling on Western Avenue north of the closure area. Delmonte will be the only company serviced by traveling on Western Avenue south of the closure area. Updates will be provided if there are any changes in the work schedule.
It seem hard to believe, but it's been 10 years (or will be, this fall) since Ed and Lora Pinder and family closed the doors for the last time on one of the most beloved local eateries in most residents' memories. Ed told the Citizen at the time it had "even older men my age" crying. "There were lots of tears," he said.
