MARSHALL CO. â€” Marshall County commissioners may have put the kibosh on a commercial wind farm in the area.
Monday, commissioners decided they will have County Attorney Jim Clevenger draft a resolution to ban commercial wind farms in the county. Once the resolution is prepared, it will go to the Plan Commission for a vote, then several public hearings will be held before the ban can be made official.
"We haven't had one person give us positive feedback (on the wind farm proposal)," noted Commissioner Jack Roose in Monday's commissioner meeting.
PLYMOUTH â€” In baseball, it often comes down to who will flinch at the final challenge, and on Wednesday at least it was Plymouthâ€™s Pilgrims (0-1) who flinched at the end, falling to South Bend St. Joe by an 8-3 final.
Only those in attendance would know it was tied at three headed to the final six outs.
CULVER â€” It wasnâ€™t always pretty, but the Lady Dragons got their first win Wednesday.
Argos jumped out to an 11-0 lead over the first four innings and held off a tenacious Culver Community squad to break into the win column, 20-6, on the road in Culver.
â€śThis is the first game that Iâ€™ve had all of my players available to play. The first game I didnâ€™t have four of my players, so this was more of a team effort,â€ť said Argos softball coach Alyssa Thayer.
Judson nips Culver
