Plymouth’s Langdon says thanks to the voters

October 22, 2010

LOS ANGELES — Plymouth’s Tyler Langdon is glad that things are getting back to normal — at least as “normal” as an actor’s life can be.
“It’s been the most stressful two weeks of my life,” he said with a laugh. “Every 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 didn’t do. I’m sure I have about a billion e-mails to catch up on.”
Langdon was one of the finalists for the Hollywood Discovery Award — part of the Hollywood Movie Award portion of the Hollywood Film Festival’s week of activities.

October 22, 2010

WALKERTON — John Glenn’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 year’s band has reaped the benefit of that tradition, making it through the regional competition and on to the semi-state at Plainfield.

Penalty for breaking burn ban heating up

October 19, 2010

PLYMOUTH — The Marshall County Commissioners have made an effort to put some “spark” in the countywide burn ban.
Abnormally dry conditions led to the disaster emergency declaration of a county wide ban on any open burning Oct. 6. With no real rain in sight conditions have continued to become more dangerous for the possibility of a disastrous fire caused by blowing of sparks from an open burn.
