PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouth is one of about 50 municipalities recently named in a major lawsuit, according to City Attorney Sean Surrisi. Kevin D. Miller was searched by a Plymouth Police Department K9 unit in 2009 following a traffic stop by the Marshall County Sheriffâ€™s Department. Miller has since claimed that Plymouthâ€™s K9 â€” and all other dogs trained at Vohne-Liche Kennels in Peru â€” are unreliable. Miller claims that the dog falsely detected drugs in his vehicle and that the search was traumatizing to himself and his wife. Miller was not arrested or charged.

â€˘ FAIRFIELD 84, BREMEN 47
BREMEN â€” When George Cox, of Bremen, was teaching science to junior and senior high school students, he often felt frustrated that he couldnâ€™t find ways to illustrate concepts to his students. To teach Newtonâ€™s first and second laws of motion, Cox used to drop an eight pound shot put and a softball out of an upstairs window at Bremen High School. The idea was to prove that the objects would hit the ground at the same time, even though they were different weights.
â€śI had to stop doing that, because I was creating (marks) in the lawn,â€ť said Cox. â€śThe school custodian made me stop.â€ť
CULVER â€” Sunday evening, the first restaurant to establish Culver as a great dining destination was darkened.
