PLYMOUTH â€” Itâ€™s a becoming a tradition that nobody wants to end.
Several years ago the Plymouth High School theater class â€” tired of buying scripts that they eventually ended up re-writing anyway â€” decided to write their own play and put it on stage. Itâ€™s something that has taken on a life of its own.
For the third year, the class presents a show theyâ€™ve written called â€śA World of Wordsâ€ť Friday and Saturday at the PHS Auditorium. Show time each night is 7 p.m.
PLYMOUTH â€” The Plymouth School Board heard a report on the school corporationâ€™s food service at last nightâ€™s meeting.
Gloria Burnam, director of food service, presented an overview of the number of meals being served as well as mandates that will have to be incorporated into the food service with the passing of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The legislation was passed in December, 2010.
Burnam said the National Standards were updated after 15 years and the new compliances will have to be met in the school year 2012-2013.
CULVER â€” A Plymouth woman was airlifted Tues-day after driving into a barn.
The Culver-Union Town-ship Fire and EMS were called to the scene at 15034 S.R. 17, on the north side of Burr Oak.
Connie Goad, 45, was eastbound on 15th Road, and as she approached S.R. 17, police said she was driving faster than the speed limit and became airborne â€” traveling about 30 feet before striking a concrete embankment. She then traveled another 50 feet in the air before crashing through a barn on the Overmyer Homestead.
