NORTH JUDSON â€” A week after it ended a 27-year sectional championship drought, LaVille entered the Class 2A North Judson Regional with the hope of bringing home its first-ever regional championship trophy. The Lancers kept that hope alive for most of four quarters, but ultimately fell a play or two short.
Bowman Academyâ€™s Justin King and Davon Dillard cooly converted a pair of one-and-ones in the gameâ€™s final stretch, and LaVille couldnâ€™t find the big bucket it needed as the Eagles held off the Lancers, 65-58 in a nip-tuck Judson Regional semifinal Saturday morning.
CMA wins two state titles
Culver Military Academy walked away from the state hockey tournament with championships in both the Class 5A and Class 3A divisions Saturday at the Compton Family Ice Arena at Notre Dame.
The CMA varsity A won the 5A title with a 5-2 victory over South Bend St. Joseph and the Eagles varsity B took the Class 3A crown with a 4-1 win over Fort Wayne Carroll.
It was the third straight Class 5A title for CMA, but the first time the school has won two state titles in the five class tournament.
MARSHALL CO. â€” Texting while driving has been illegal in Indiana since 2011. But will police actually pull you over if they see you looking at your phone behind the wheel?
Plymouth Police Chief Dave Bacon said itâ€™s possible â€” but the law is a tough one for his officers to enforce.
â€śThe way the current law is written, itâ€™s for text messaging and emailing (on a mobile device),â€ť said Bacon. â€śWell, people could be looking at a map online. Will we stop them? Yes, we will stop them. But I donâ€™t think the law is highly enforced the way itâ€™s written now.â€ť

PLYMOUTH â€”Â Every year, the Plymouth Public Library encourages patrons to read one book as a community.
The â€śOne Book One Townâ€ť program is similar to a giant book club â€” one that everyone is welcome to.
â€śThe idea is to promote lifelong literacy and to share ideas â€” so we read one book together,â€ť said Anna Liechty, a Friends of the Library member and the leader of the upcoming community book talk.
This yearâ€™s book is The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, a memoir by William Kamkwamba and Bryan Mealer.
