PLYMOUTH â€” Juvenile offenders in Marshall County may have farther to go before they reach their destination in 2012, according to county attorney Jim Clevengerâ€™s report to the county commissioners Monday.
Clevenger suggested that the commissioners consider holding juveniles in the detention center in Delaware county rather than the current location in Porter County. The center in Delaware County has a cheaper per night rate, and they also offer additional resources in the way of transportation and psychiatric services.

As the 2011-12 school years starts there are concerns with an out of balance situation, but this time itâ€™s Webster Elementary and Menominee Elementary that are getting dangerously close to losing Title I services. Because of this, Superintendent Daniel Tyree feels that itâ€™s important to take a close look at the shifts in population within the school district and make possible adjustments through re-districting for the 2012-13 school year.
The arts -- and its offerings to students at Culver Academies as well as to the community at large -- are at the fore as the school prepares to unveil the Rosemary Berkel Crisp and Harry L.Crisp II (CMA â€™53) Center for the Visual Arts on its campus, which will be dedicated Oct. 7.
The $4.1 million retrofit of Eppley Hall of Science provides the spaces necessary for Culverâ€™s visual arts curriculum with new studios and dedicated classrooms for drawing, painting, sculpting, and printmaking, an expanded photography area, an auditorium/classroom, and two galleries.
