PLYMOUTH â€”Â Punkyâ€™s Pantry is a new bakery that opened in downtown Plymouth Monday. Owner Cammy Jones, her husband Randy, and mother-in-law Caro have a simple business model: make a different delicious pastry every day, offer some coffee and tea, and open early enough for downtown employees to swing by before work. Theyâ€™ve set up shop inside the Plymouth Downtown Commons building, in the hallway next to Furore Photography, Healing Hands Massage, and L&K Serendipity.
MARSHALL COUNTY â€” Ever wanted to get involved with local volunteering but didnâ€™t know how?

PLYMOUTH â€” City street department employees began demolishing the Bauer building (former home to Reese's Hearing Aids) this morning, and they say that the job will take the rest of the day and tomorrow.
Habitat for Humanity ReStore employees made a final visit to the building before demolition began, taking anything of value to sell in the ReStore. During the demolition process, the city parking lot adjacent to the Bauer building will be closed.

Culver Comm. High School principal Albert Hanselman was invited by the Apple company to its world headquarters in Cupertino, California, from April 10 through 12, to present to the company as well as educators from Illinois and Minnesota about the school's work with the iPad 2 computer device.
"Albert was very excited about the opportunity for this experience," notes CCHS secretary Sandy Thomas. "He presented on Tuesday evening, our time, and again Thursday morning before returning home."
PLYMOUTH â€”Â Washington Elementary School students learned a few things about a balanced life Friday at the schoolâ€™s annual health fair. Beyond just nutrition and exercise, the students also picked up some tips on fire safety â€” courtesy of volunteers from the Plymouth Fire Department â€” seatbelt use, and teeth brushing.
â€śWe are just encouraging activity,â€ť said physical education teacher Mike Kershner. â€śSo many kids these days just go home and watch TV.â€ť
Kershner added that he was surprised he had to teach students outdoor games such as kickball since they didnâ€™t already know how to play.
