PLYMOUTH â€” Running for political office can be a long lonely road but Senate hopeful Joe Donnelly has found a traveling friend for the past few days in former Indiana Senator and Governor Evan Bayh.
Friends for the past 26 years - the two have embarked on a two day, five community trip down main street Indiana. The tour began with stops in Indianapolis, Speedway and Terre Haute yesterday and between trips to Fort Wayne and East Chicago the pair stopped for lunch in Plymouth at Opie's Deli.
PLYMOUTH â€” More than 500 local children are ready for unlimited fun Labor Day weekend, as they have in their possession the much-desired Mega Pass.
This pass, sold by the Marshall County Blueberry Festival office, is an all-you-can-ride ticket to every attraction offered by All Star Amusement, the festivalâ€™s contracted carnival. Although sales of the pass generally increase around this time of year due to a reduced early bird price, festival board member Larry Faulstich reported at a board meeting Monday that the office has sold 100 fewer passes than the same time last year.
PLYMOUTH â€” For the fifth year, motorcycle riders from several Indiana counties will be riding together to raise funds for the many programs of the Plymouth FOP Lodge 195. Despite a downpour of rain last year, 63 undaunted riders raised some $6,000-$7,000.
PLYMOUTH â€” The saying is that what doesnâ€™t kill you makes you stronger, and if it bears any truth Plymouthâ€™s Rockies should soon be flexing their muscles.
A week ago suspensions to several key Rockie starters gave their young replacements a total of two days to prepare for an outstanding Bremen football team. Another week of practice will help, but hitting the road to face Rochester Friday is another tough task.
BOURBON â€” Tritonâ€™s boys tennis team opened its 2012 Northern State Conference schedule the same way it finished up its conference slate last year â€” with a narrow win over Knox.
Last year, a three-set win over Knox on the 2 doubles court at the NSC Tournament propelled the Trojans to a program-first conference title. On Wednesday, Triton sophomore Jared Fisher battled back from a 6-4 loss to Knoxâ€™s Hunter Gilbert with 6-0 and 6-4 wins at 3 singles to lift the home team over the Redskins in the Trojansâ€™ NSC opener at home.
Bremen loses NSC opener at Jimtown
Bremen lost a narrow Northern State Conference decision to conference favorite Jimtown 3-2 in the two teamsâ€™ NSC opener in Elkhart Wednesday.
Bremenâ€™s two wins came at 3 singles, where Wes Burkholder beat Jacob Gongwer in straight sets 6-3, 6-0, and at 2 doubles, where Tommy Foster and Krent Hueni outlasted Jimtownâ€™s Auggie Farwig and Michael Hobbs in three sets, 6-4, 3-6, 6-1.
