BOURBON â On the morning of April 25, 2011, a man who identified himself as Mike Johnson walked into First Step daycare in Bourbon and began questioning director Becky Wampler, who was taking care of her invalid father, about the facility.
The man said that he had a 2-year-old daughter and he was looking for a daycare for her. Wampler said that although he claimed to have a 2-year-old and a 4-year-old, he appeared to be too old to have children that age. After looking into all the rooms, the man sat down on the couch.
âHe said, âIs this all the children you have?ââ said Wampler.
PLYMOUTH â The Plymouth Police Depart-ment is still looking for a replacement for Officer Trent Shively, who announced his resignation last month.
Police chief Jim Cox announced at the board of public works and safety meeting Monday that the department had recently completed background checks on the three candidates they have for the position. It was found that one of the candidates had been involved in an underage drinking party in the past, and that when dealing with the Plymouth police, had became belligerent.
PLYMOUTH â During a regularly scheduled board meeting on Tuesday night, the Plymouth School Board officially appointed Jeffery Houin to the position of Corporation Attorney.
Houin is originally from Plymouth and graduated from Plymouth High School in 1996. He competed on the Plymouth Speech Team all except his junior year, when he attended Wentzinger Gymnasium in Freiburg, Germany as a recipient of the Congress-Bundestag student exchange scholarship.
A captivating -- and at times side-splitting -- performance by renowned Indiana University-based a capella group Straight No Chaser provided what attendees doubtless found the perfect end to a perfect evening, at the Culver Boys & Girls Club's annual auction and banquet.
Running through several comedy-laced musical numbers, the group even brought Dianne Osborn, one of the principle organizers of the event, to the stage to croon their rendition of "My Girl" to her, earning appreciative laughs and cheers from the crowd.
