Joshua Markin, 25, of South Bend's black Durango became submerged at the Lawrence Lake access site on Olive Trail Friday morning. Markin said he was planning on fowl hunting at the lake and was parked on the ramp access. He said he returned to the truck and it began to move forward. He told officers he couldnâ€™t remember if the truck was in reverse, drive, neutral or park. As the truck neared the water, Markin escaped through the sunroof. When the vehicle was pulled from the lake, it was in park.
HAMLET â€” A Christmastime atmosphere will fill the air at the Statehouse Rotunda as a magnificent Concolor Fir is moved into the building, bringing with it the citrusy aroma of the holidays.
This glorious tree, which stands roughly 25 feet tall, is a testament to the skill and care of the growers at Hensler Nursery, Inc. in Hamlet.
In addition to providing the tree for the Statehouse, they will also be presenting Lt. Governor Becky Skill-man with an 8-foot Fraser Fir.
PLYMOUTH â€” This week, the newest campaign to market our community was unveiled. The Wheel of Progress campaign is now beginning to take off after several local stakeholders decided to join together to formulate a brand for the city.
They have decided that â€śJoin Us in the Journeyâ€ť will be the cityâ€™s slogan, after a community-wide survey that was distributed to the public for 10 days in November.
