PLYMOUTH â€” Graham Calhoun isn't quite like other boys his age.
For starters, the Riverside Elementary fifth-grader has been ranked the No. 1 wrestler in the country in his division on TheMat.com's Future Olympian rankings.
But Graham was also born a little different.
He was born with only one kidney, a fact that the Calhoun family only discovered a little over three years ago in November of 2009.
During wrestling practice one day, Graham noticed blood in his urine. When he went to the hospital to get checked out, the doctor gave him his life-changing diagnosis.
CULVER â€” A 56-year-old woman from Claypool, Ind. killed herself Tuesday afternoon at a church cemetery outside of Culver, according to a press release issued by the Marshall County Coroner.
The woman called the 911 Dispatch Center and told the dispatcher of her intentions. When the woman could not be reached, officers were sent to the scene. Her body was discovered in the cemetery behind Poplar Grove Church.
No foul play is suspected. A note with contact information was found in the woman's car.
PLYMOUTH â€” Marshall County Emergency Management, Walgreen's and the Marshall County Amateur Radio Club will program NOAA weather radios from 7 a.m. - 12 p.m. Saturday at the Michigan Street Walgreen's.
â€ś We donâ€™t have the ability to put warning sirens in every location in Marshall County, Clyde Avery, Emergency Management director, said. â€śThe down side to sirens is that they warn people who are outside to seek shelter, but donâ€™t give them specifics about the kind of emergency.â€ť
