PLYMOUTH â€” The annual Jefferson Jackson Democratic Dinner held Sunday night featured three speakers.
Speaking at the event were Brendan Mullen, 2nd Congressional District Democratic Candidate for U.S. House of Representatives; Nancy Dembowski, currently serving in the Indiana State House of Representatives; and Pete Buttigieg, Democratic candidate for Mayor of South Bend.
Mullen said, â€śWhat is needed is family, fellowship, hard work and service.â€ť
PLYMOUTH â€” Chilly weather complete with a downpour of rain on Saturday didnâ€™t keep 60 motorcycle riders from participating in the 4th Annual Ride for â€śShop with a Cop-Christmas for Kids.â€ť
The ride started at Young Amphitheatre in Plymouth and took riders to Rochester, Bass Lake and then back to the American Legion hall in Plymouth. Following the ride, a meal and auction were held as well.
One of the organizers, Jeff Stewart said, â€śWe canâ€™t thank the community enough for their support in monetary and gift donations.â€ť
Culver resident Jean Triplet may represent the last local link to the bygone days of small-town pharmacies, so well remembered by many here. After 49 years in the business, Triplet has retired from CVS Pharmacy in Culver, though her earliest years behind the drug-store counter were at beloved local pharmacy Mr. T's.
KENDALLVILLE â€” A trio of area golfers finished out their seasons as the weather nearly derailed the East Noble Girls Golf Regional Saturday.
Plymouthâ€™s Emily Berger shot a 98, while Tritonâ€™s Sydney Gochenour carded a 97, and Culver Girls Academyâ€™s Mackenzie Toth shot a 99 in the persistent drizzle at Noble Hawk.
Led by Heidi Morganthalerâ€™s round of 78, NorthWood found itself in contention to advance with a 368 as lightning delayed the regional tilt for several hours, and darkness eventually forced the suspension of play with several teams set to resume their rounds today.
PLYMOUTH â€” A penalty kick on a controversial call left Plymouth down two goals and chasing visiting Northridge, and the Rockies lost an eventual 5-1 Northern Lakes Conference decision to the Raiders at Kindt Soccerplex Saturday.
Plymouth went into the half trailing 1-0 after Steven Hooley scored on a Cameron Miller assist in the gameâ€™s 15th minute, but it was Millerâ€™s pk in the 43rd minute that put Plymouth into press mode, and Northridge capitalized with two more goals during an eight-minute span between the gameâ€™s 50th and 58th minutes to put the game out of reach.
John Glennâ€™s Josh Anderson rushed for 234 yards and five touchdowns in the Falconsâ€™ 48-21 victory over Culver Military Academy Friday at Glenn.
NorthWoodâ€™s Cynthia Medina won the girls closed race at the prestigious Culver Academies Cross Country Invitational Saturday with a time of 19:09.
SYRACUSE â€” After running off three straight wins in Weeks 2 through 4, the Rockies seem to be bottoming out.
Plymouth gave up two scores little more than three minutes in and gained just 50 total offensive yards in the second half en route to their second straight Northern Lakes Conference defeat, 39-12 on the road at Wawasee Friday.
WALKERTON â€”Â Josh Anderson was once again the main attraction Friday night.
The senior running back accumulated 234 yards and five touchdowns on 18 attempts, helping John Glenn roll to a 48-21 victory over Culver Military Academy in high school football action at Falcon Field.
Anderson found the end zone on runs of 9, 20, 8, 3, and 46 yards as the Falcons (5-1) scored 20 points in the opening period on their way to a 35-0 halftime cushion.
BREMEN â€”Â A local merchant donated $25 for each Bremen touchdown Friday night.
Given the frequency of their trips to the end zone, the Lions looked determine to bankrupt the unsuspecting business before the first quarter even ended.
Buoyed by outstanding first-half field position and Ben Hueniâ€™s first-frame touchdown reception and interception return for six points, Class 2A No. 6 Bremen seized control early and cruised to a 55-14 Northern State Conference football win over visiting LaVille on homecoming night at Don Bunge Field.
