The Culver-Union Township Public Library is on its way to accepting credit card payments for overdue fines, damages, and other fees patrons may incur, following a vote February 15 at the library boardâ€™s regular monthly meeting.
Sunday, at 6:39 a.m. near the intersection of U.S. 30 and Rose Road, Marshall County police and Plymouth fire/paramedics responded to a rollover crash.
Michael Landau, 62, of Canby, Oregon, was later treated for leg and back/neck pain after the single-vehicle crash.
Landau was traveling east on U.S. 30 when he lost control on the ice-covered road surface. He slid off the highway on the south side, going down a small embankment and rolling over several times before coming to rest on the driverâ€™s side.
PLYMOUTH â€” Itâ€™s not surprising to hear that many 12-year-olds love using their hand-held electronic devises for playing games and chatting with friends, but the one that Travis Louckes uses is far from just a way to pass the time.
Travis, who has been diagnosed with autism complicated with a communication disorder, is non-verbal. Up until about a year ago when he received to his first iPod, his family and teachers would have to guess at what he needed or wanted. Now, he simply shows those around him what he needs by tapping on an icon or typing out a word.
Chad Van Herk, familiar to many in Culver as the manager of the local First Farmers Bank, charmed his audience at Culverâ€™s REAL Meals last week with a mixture of original and familiar songs, which he sang to his own guitar playing. The audience was singing along with his last two numbers, â€śWhat a Wonderful Worldâ€ť (popularized by Louis Armstrong) and the Guy Lombardo classic, â€śEnjoy Yourself.â€ť Van Herk said heâ€™s been playing for more than 14 years and even has cut a CD a few years ago, which is available online.
