ARGOS â€” Culver Young Farmers recently donated a Liberty Rescue Tube to the Argos Fire Department, after firefighters and some of the Young Farmers took a class on grain rescue sponsored by Purdue University in February.
The tube comes apart in four pieces, and can be wrapped around a person trapped in grain.
â€śA lot of us are farmers, and we need (the tube) in our community in case someone gets trapped,â€ť said Culver Young Farmers advisor Mike Jones. â€śWe decided Argos would be a central location for Marshall County.â€ť
ARGOS â€”Â If it seems like thereâ€™s been less traffic at the Marshall County 4-H Fair this year, blame the heat, said fair board president Dick Markley Wednesday.
â€śThe weather is affecting the fair,â€ť said Markley. â€śIâ€™m not seeing as many people out, and some food vendors Iâ€™ve talked to have said they have had lower sales (than in past years).â€ť
Betty Berkeypile, of Plymouth, co-owner of the Taco Garden truck at the fair, said that her sales have not necessarily gone done, but she has noticed that people are shying away from ordering hot food.
BOURBON â€”Â Cooling off at the splash pad in Bourbon is now only an option during certain times of day, due to a town-wide water shortage warning.
The town is currently under a warning issued by the Department of Natural Resources and the Department of Homeland Security because of the drought conditions. The goal of the warning is to avoid or reduce water shortage, relieve stressed sources of water, and to anticipate the need for mandatory water use restrictions.
ARGOS â€“ Use duct tape on a wound? Improvise with whatever is in your truck? Yes, according to the Farm Safety Seminar at the Marshall County 4-H Fair Sunday night. Presenter Benni Weldy, a full-time paramedic and firefighter with the Zionsville Fire Department, is also the public education officer. The seminar was sponsored by the Culver Young Farmers and was well attended.
ARGOS â€”Â Carly McCay, a 2012 Argos High School graduate, has signed to play soccer at Hanover College.
McCay, daughter of Mike and Rhonda McCay, was a four-year letter winner for Argos.

She was a first team all-conference selection twice for the Dragons, won the varsity mental attitude award and was named honorable mention for the Indiana Coaches of Girls Sports Association Academic All-State team.
