PLYMOUTH - The methamphetamine problem in Marshall County reaches into more areas than just those involved with the manufacture and use of the drug.
Police have conducted two raids on properties on West Washington Street in Plymouth in the past few months, the most recent netted two arrests and an intricate methamphetamine lab on Monday. The county GIS system lists the owners of the property as Jim and Sharon Carnes.
Being listed as the owners of the property has caused both Jim and his wife to feel their reputation has been damaged in the community.
ARGOS - A pair of Argos High School students hope that something good may come of tragedy.
Richii Zieber and Mat Milliser are friends of Courtney DeMont, the Argos student who remains in critical care after and accident on April 18. The incident struck both deeply.
â€śIt really got me when I heard and I went for a walk,â€ť said Richii remembering that night. â€śI went to Matâ€™s house and talked to him because I wanted to do something to help the family and talked about maybe covering a song for her. On the way home I decided I was going to write a song for her.â€ť
ARGOS â€“ Now that the purchase of 75 acres of land has been finalized, the town faces one more hurdle - annexation.

Headed in opposite directions, when the two teams met at The Nest in Walkerton Wednesday, it made for an old-fashioned spanking.
Bremen plated seven runs in the top of the first on the strength of six hits and four Glenn errors, and the Lions never looked back in a 13-2, five-inning defeat of the Falcons on the road.
