LaPaz postmaster retires after 30 years

MARSHALL CO. â€”Â Although vaccine eligibility requirements changed in February of this year, Marshall County Health Department nurse Susan Lechlitner said some county residents are not aware of the change.
â€śOur phones have just started to ring for school because parents are realizing that itâ€™s August already,â€ť said Lechlitner.
Lechlitner and her staff have had to turn away several people because they no longer qualify for vaccinations at the health department due to the new requirements.
LONDON â€” Plymouth native Morgan Uceny will compete in the womenâ€™s 1500-meter preliminaries at the 2012 Olympics in London Monday.
PLYMOUTH â€” After a somewhat lackluster performance in the regional semifinals, Plymouth Post 27â€™s coaching staff was hoping to see a spark from its players at state.
The Diamond Spyders delivered, going blow for blow with regional champ Porter County for 12 innings, but in the end they fell just a little short in a 5-4, 13-inning heartbreaker in the two teamsâ€™ American Legion State Tournament opener at Bill Nixon Field Thursday.
