Carnival returns to 2013 4-H fair

April 23, 2013

MARSHALL CO. — 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 year’s fair.
“People wanted the carnival, but they wanted a good carnival — something that looks good and is safe,” said Rensberger, adding, “That’s what we all want.”
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.

Author visits two county schools

April 23, 2013

ARGOS/PLYMOUTH – 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 Author’s Conference in Bremen the same evening.
Her children’s book “The Beef Princess of Practical County” 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 author’s appearance.

Tough loss on the road for Pilgrims

April 23, 2013

PLYMOUTH — It was the best of games, it was the worst of games, and in the end it was a loss for Plymouth’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 couldn’t hold on and suffered a come-from-behind loss.
“You get up four-oh and they got back in it,” said Plymouth coach Ryan Wolfe. “And we didn’t do what we had to do to close it out tonight.”

PLYMOUTH — Plymouth got on top early, then battled back and forth with Goshen for the Lady Pilgrims’ first Northern Lakes Conference win in a thriller at home in Centennial Park Monday.
Plymouth entered the sixth inning trailing 4-3, but Morgan O’Neal’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.
