The project is a collection of kids songs written and performed in the bands distinct style that is as popular with parents as it is their children.

Samuelson, a 6-foot-5, 290-pound guard, is the fourth player to verbally commit to Pitt's 2013 recruiting class.
Pitt is a Division I program making a move from the Big East to the Atlantic Coast Conference following the ACC's formal acceptance of both Pitt and Syracuse in September.

PLYMOUTH â Marissa Sullivan returned to the Plymouth line-up Wednesday night and made her presence felt in all aspects of the game.
Unfortunately, it wasnât enough to get the win.
The Lady Pilgrim senior had missed the teamâs last three games due to an ankle injury and made up for her time away by going 2-for-3 at the plate with a double and a triple and pitching her way to 10 strikeouts in a 4-2 loss to the visiting Wawasee Warriors at home.

PLYMOUTH âÂ Walmart in Plymouth was recently voted "Store of the Year" by the corporation's Illinois-based distribution center truck drivers. Three of the drivers visited the store Wednesday to hold a cookout for store employees as a gesture of gratitude for their hard work.
"(The award) is because of their consistent attention to detail," said one of the drivers, Steve Schlumpf. "Employees have the trailers unloaded in a timely fashion, they follow up by sweeping the trailers, and the inside of the store is always clean."
PLYMOUTH â Sometimes there is nothing like a visual example to help learning. The Plymouth High School Leaders Eliminating Alcohol and Drugs (LEAD) club hopes that will be the case Thursday.
The club will be holding a mock crash at 10 a.m. in front of the High School to be witnessed by the student body. Students, teachers, sheriffâs deputies, firefighters and emergency medical technicians will be participating in the event, which will include real wrecked automobiles, an ambulance, deputy cruisers, fire trucks and a helicopter.
