MARSHALL CO. â€” The carnival is back.
Marshall County 4-H Fair Board President Ron Rensberger said that after not having a carnival at the fair last year, the board has decided to bring it back for this yearâ€™s fair.
â€śPeople wanted the carnival, but they wanted a good carnival â€” something that looks good and is safe,â€ť said Rensberger, adding, â€śThatâ€™s what we all want.â€ť
The carnival that used to be at the fair is now unavailable because of cost and scheduling changes, said Rensberger. A new carnival called Circus City Amusements will be entertaining fairgoers.
ARGOS/PLYMOUTH â€“ Writing is like showing beef steers? Really?
Yes, said author Michelle Houts, as she spoke to students at Argos Elementary and Washington Discovery Elementary in Plymouth Friday. She was in Marshall County to headline the Young Authorâ€™s Conference in Bremen the same evening.
Her childrenâ€™s book â€śThe Beef Princess of Practical Countyâ€ť was not unknown to the students at either school. They had clearly been reading (or hearing, in the case of younger students) the book prior to the authorâ€™s appearance.
PLYMOUTH â€” It was the best of games, it was the worst of games, and in the end it was a loss for Plymouthâ€™s Pilgrims on the road at Goshen, 6-5.
Getting up early the Pilgrims looked to build even more on the momentum they began to build with two big come-from-behind wins, but couldnâ€™t hold on and suffered a come-from-behind loss.
â€śYou get up four-oh and they got back in it,â€ť said Plymouth coach Ryan Wolfe. â€śAnd we didnâ€™t do what we had to do to close it out tonight.â€ť
PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouth got on top early, then battled back and forth with Goshen for the Lady Pilgrimsâ€™ first Northern Lakes Conference win in a thriller at home in Centennial Park Monday.
Plymouth entered the sixth inning trailing 4-3, but Morgan Oâ€™Nealâ€™s two-out, two-run inside-the-park homer pushed the Pilgrims into the lead, freshman reliever Haley Brown got the save with the Goshen go-ahead on second in the top of the seventh, and the home team held on for the 5-4 NLC win.
Bremen notches NSC shutout of Triton
Bremen earned a pair of three-set wins at 2 singles and 1 doubles, and the Lady Lions shut out host Triton 5-0 in a Northern State Conference meet in Bourbon Monday.
Alexa Harshbarger responded after a loss in the opening set to beat Carrie Slabaugh 3-6, 6-2, 6-1 on the 2 singles court, and the Lionsâ€™ 1 doubles tandem of Haley Foster and Cassie Sears did the same as they defeated Marissa Ross and Savannah Baker 4-6, 6-2, 6-1 at 1 doubles.
Bremen stayed unbeaten on the young season at 2-0 both overall and in the conference.
