LOS ANGELES â€” Plymouthâ€™s Tyler Langdon is glad that things are getting back to normal â€” at least as â€śnormalâ€ť as an actorâ€™s life can be.
â€śItâ€™s been the most stressful two weeks of my life,â€ť he said with a laugh. â€śEvery free moment has been filled with being on Facebook, emailing, reminding people to vote for me. Now I have to catch up with all the things I didnâ€™t do. Iâ€™m sure I have about a billion e-mails to catch up on.â€ť
Langdon was one of the finalists for the Hollywood Discovery Award â€” part of the Hollywood Movie Award portion of the Hollywood Film Festivalâ€™s week of activities.
WALKERTON â€” John Glennâ€™s marching band is no stranger to success.
Trips to the state finals in class D of the ISSMA state tournament in 1999, 2000 and 2006 had set the stage, but after moving up to class C the band had to adjust to the competition with bigger schools. This yearâ€™s band has reaped the benefit of that tradition, making it through the regional competition and on to the semi-state at Plainfield.

PLYMOUTH â€” Itâ€™s over. Thatâ€™s about all that Plymouthâ€™s Rockies want to remember about last week, with the opening round of the playoffs looming.
â€śYou can sum it up and just say it was frustrating,â€ť said Plymouth coach John Barron of last weekâ€™s season ending loss to NorthWood by a 7-3 score. â€śIt was frustrating to our kids, frustrating to our staff and I think frustrating to our fans. You shouldnâ€™t lose a game where you only give up seven points.Â But thatâ€™s a long time ago now. Weâ€™ve stopped talking about it, stopped thinking about it and gone back to work.â€ť
