March 7, 2011

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.

Student successfully using iPod to communicate

March 7, 2011

PLYMOUTH — It’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.

Music you can bank on

March 7, 2011

Chad Van Herk, familiar to many in Culver as the manager of the local First Farmers Bank, charmed his audience at Culver’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, “What a Wonderful World” (popularized by Louis Armstrong) and the Guy Lombardo classic, “Enjoy Yourself.” Van Herk said he’s been playing for more than 14 years and even has cut a CD a few years ago, which is available online.
