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
North Judson plated a run in the top of the seventh, and the Bluejays hung on for a narrow 2-1 victory in their season-opener at Culver Community Wednesday night.
The game was a pitchersâ€™ duel between Judsonâ€™s staff of Tyler Tunis and David Jacim and Culverâ€™s Kyle Vlach as the trio combined to give up only four total hits in the opener.
The Cavs finished with just one hit at the game, a double from Nick Pritz, and the home team recorded three errors as they slipped to an 0-1 start.
Culver travels to Caston tonight with a 5:30 p.m. EST start time.

WALKERTON â€” One night after scoring 25 runs at Oregon-Davis, the John Glenn Falcons found themselves in a dogfight with one of South Bendâ€™s premier programs in Washington at home Tuesday night.
Fortunately for the Falcons, they got a stellar performance from pitcher Mark Einhorn and rallied with more than enough offense during a fourth-inning outburst to pull out the win.
The unseasonably cold early spring weather led to more postponements Tuesday night.
Plymouthâ€™s baseball game with South Central was rescheduled for Thursday at 4:30 p.m. EST, and the Lady Pilgrimsâ€™ softball game at Mishawaka was also pushed back to Thursday at 5 p.m. Plymouthâ€™s JV baseball game at Rochester was postponed with no rescheduled date as of press deadline.
