PLYMOUTH â€”Â This year, St. Michael Catholic School in Plymouth will again host â€śA Night in Italyâ€ť fundraising dinner.
â€śAll proceeds (from the event) go to the schoolâ€™s annual fund, which in the past has been used for items like the Olweus Bullying Program,â€ť said Ryan Jessen, member of the school board.â€ťThe annual fund provides a way to bridge the gap between the tuition and the actual costs of education the children enrolled at Saint Michael.â€ť
PLYMOUTH - For the past few months Marshall County REMC workers and customers have noticed an increase in a very specific crime.
â€śIt stems back into early summer when we were changing out a lot of poles and equipment around the area,â€ť said Dave Lewallen of Marshall County REMC. â€śOur lineman noticed that on a lot of poles the copper covered ground wire was missing off of the poles as far us as could be reached from the ground. In some cases we donâ€™t know how long they had been like that.â€ť
