August 13, 2012

PLYMOUTH — Eighty-five young adults in Northwest Indiana had the opportunity this summer to do more than mow a lawn or babysit for some extra cash. They were part of a three-year-old program offered by a partnership between the Indiana Department of Transportation, the Department of Workforce Development, and the Department of Natural Resources to young people from economically-challenged families. The youth earned a little more than $11 per hour to do tasks similar to what a full-time INDOT employee would do in a typical day.

Plymouth fireman willl make Blueberry run for kids

August 13, 2012

PLYMOUTH — In an emergency situation a fireman is known to be able to endure great hardship and trial to save lives. One Plymouth fireman is taking that a step — make that a jog — further.
Plymouth fireman John Pasley will be running the full course of this year’s Blueberry Stomp. You likely won’t be able to recognize him by his face because you probably won’t be able to see it. In order to help Riley’s Children’s Hospital, Pasley will run the full 9.3 miles in full fire gear -— including helmet and airpack.
