PLYMOUTH â€” With less than 30 percent of registered voters casting a ballot in the recent municipal election, the Marshall County Election Board has reconsidered the 23 voting locations currently established in the county.
Election board president Steve Harper and vice president Roger Wise visited the county commissioners meeting Tuesday morning to propose a plan to condense voting locations to only 16 for 2012.
â€śWe are really excited to put this (system) in place for the primary (election), because we know fall will be a large election,â€ť said Harper.
PLYMOUTH â€” City attorney Nelson Chipman resigned Tuesday, after working for the city of Plymouth for the last four years.
His resignation will come into effect at the close of business Feb. 29. Chipman said that the decision to leave his position was difficult, but he felt that the time was right as the city is in a solid financial and managerial position.
Mayor Mark Senter said that a search for the new city attorney has already begun.
BREMEN â€” Coming off a two-week holiday layover, the Lions got off to a bit of a slow start Tuesday.
Once they shook off the rust, however, they took over.
After surrendering a 4-0 game-opening run by visiting Bethany Christian, Bremen locked in to hold the Bruins scoreless from the field for more than six minutes, grabbing a 10-point, 15-5 lead in the process. Bethany responded with a run of its own in the second quarter, but the Lions answered back and never trailed after the 2:30 mark of the first in a 59-45 win at home.
