MARSHALL CO. â€” Soon, prisoners at the Marshall County Jail will be charged an extra 25 cents for each phone call they make.
The charge is to cover a voice verification technology thatâ€™s being added to the phone system at the jail.
â€śItâ€™s a software where the inmates get their own personalized PIN number and there is a sentence they would say to verify their identity (when placing a call),â€ť said Sheriff Tom Chamberlin.
Chamberlin said that the technology is being added to reduce theft inside the jail.
LaPORTE â€” Itâ€™s no secret that Plymouth coach Dave Duncan doesnâ€™t substitute many players during the course of a girls basketball game.
Heck, in one respect, he didnâ€™t even need five Tuesday night to beat a good LaPorte team.
Only four Plymouth players scored as the Pilgrim girls pounded out a rough 51-40 victory at the Slicer gym.
Sophomore forward Hunter Stevens poured in a career-high 27 points and senior forward Amber Redinger chipped in 15 more as Plymouth dominated under the glass.
HAMLET â€” Everyone who steps on the floor opposite Oregon-Davis knows what theyâ€™re going to do; theyâ€™ve been doing a long time.
The problem is finding a way to stop the ICGSA Class A No. 2 Lady Cats.
OD used its signature fullcourt trap to create havoc against John Glenn early, forcing 10 turnovers in the first frame while jumping out to a 16-0 lead and never surrendered the advantage once in a 77-47 rout of the visiting Lady Falcons on their home court at The Den Tuesday night.
BREMEN â€” The Bremen Lady Lions lost a hard-fought, turnover-filled game to the Rochester Lady Zebras Tuesday night by a score of 45-36.
The two teams combined for 54 turnovers in the game with both teams getting after it on the defensive end.
After three, the Lady Lions only trailed by three, 32-29, but sloppy play in the fourth quarter cost them the game.
ARGOS â€” Argos boys soccer coach Todd VanDerWeele has been named the 2012 Ball State University Alumnus Soccer Coach of the Year for the second consecutive year, it was announced Tuesday.
VanDerWeele was selected by a vote of other Ball State alumni head soccer coaches at Indiana high schools. A 1995 graduate of Ball State, he guided the Dragons to a 19-2-1 record with repeat sectional and regional titles and the programâ€™s first Northern Indiana Soccer Conference championship since 1998.
Triton stays unbeaten in NSC
Kylie Mason dropped 22 points to lead three Triton players in double figures, and the Lady Trojans remained unbeaten in Northern State Conference play on the road at winless New Prairie Tuesday, 66-47.
Shana Anderson finished with 16 points, while Taylor Hatfield scored 14 for Class A No. 9 Triton, which moved to 9-4 overall and 4-0 in the NSC.
Mason pulled down five rebounds, while Anderson dished out five assists, and Breanna Lemler recorded seven of the Trojansâ€™ 19 steals in the win.
