MARSHALL CO. â€” After voting last month to not allow golf carts access on county roads, county commissioners changed their decision during their regularly scheduled meeting Monday.
Although the issue was not on the official agenda, Commissioner president Kevin Overmyer brought it up, asking his fellow commissioners Jack Roose and Greg Compton if they wished to discuss it further. Commissioners were unable to agree on the matter previously, as Compton was against allowing golf carts (citing safety reasons) and Roose had stated that golf carts should be allowed total access to county roads.
OK, hereâ€™s the key thing to remember:
Morgan Uceny has to run three races to earn an Olympic Gold Medal.
But she only has to win one.
As much as everyone in Plymouth wanted to see the 2003 PHS graduate sweep through her preliminary race of the womenâ€™s 1,500-meter run in London Monday morning, the fact is: the only race that really matters is the one for the championship Friday night.
So, Ucenyâ€™s second-place finish in round one Monday was fine, just fine. She advances to Wednesdayâ€™s semifinals, scheduled to start at 2:45 p.m. (EDT).

PLYMOUTH â€”Â Dr. George Drew, an emergency room physician at Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center in Plymouth, might be more interested than the average American in watching the Summer Olympics this year.
