PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouth Schools had a two-hour delay this morning due to a bomb threat at Plymouth High School.
Superintendent Daniel Tyree said they called a corporationâ€”wide delay because the school buses shuttle students for all of the other schools at the high school each morning. Tyree said, â€śThe only school building effected was PHS.â€ť
Although the actual wording was not released, Tyree called the bomb threat a â€śsloppy mess on a bathroom wall.â€ť
He said the Plymouth Police are investigating and dogs trained in bomb detection from the Indiana State Police were at the school by 5:15 a.m.
MARSHALL CO. â€” An increase in the popularity of synthetic marijuana has contributed to Marshall County spending more to test evidence picked up in drug arrests.
Prosecutor David Holmes told county commissioners Tuesday that 547 drug cases came through the county system in 2012. Evidence including drugs and paraphernalia in 182 cases were submitted to Great Lakes Laboratory in Valparaiso for testing.
CULVER â€” Coming off a somewhat lackluster loss to John Glenn in the Bi-County Tournament last Friday, the Cavaliers bounced back strong Wednesday.
Culverâ€™s offense shared the load with four players in or near double figures, and the Cavs tied a season-high with 18 assists to finish with 54 percent accuracy from the floor in a 63-44 win over Oregon-Davis on their home floor at John R. Nelson Gymnasium.
No. 9 Plymouth dominates at Clay
Plymouth ran out to a 23-5 lead at the first quarter break and never let up as the Class 3A No. 9 Lady Pilgrims more than tripled Clay, 83-25, on the Colonialsâ€™ home floor in South Bend Wednesday.
Lauren Tanner knocked in three 3s on her way to a game co-high 16 points, and Haley Harrell and Kaydon Fosler both hit a pair of triples on their way to respective tallies of 16 and 13 points as Plymouth finished a red-hot 8 of 12 from beyond the arch in a makeup of a game rescheduled from Tuesday night.
