The Culver park board's vote as to whether to allow a beer tasting event in the town park came down to an even 50-50 split, but the lack of a majority of favorable votes equaled a "no."

PLYMOUTH - The Plymouth Park Department has begun exploring the possibility of buying some land.
Property to the east directly adjacent to property the park already owns on the Plymouth/Goshen Trail has come on the market. The Park Board has begun the process of exploring if the cost might be worth the purchase of the 4.8 acres.
â€śThat would be a natural direction for us to expand if we ever would decide to,â€ť said Park Board President Dave Morrow. â€śWeâ€™ve started to look into whether it would be feasible for us to purchase that property at this time.â€ť

ARGOS â€” Hal and Jeanne Sullivan are like most families that own small farms.
They work every day, donâ€™t take vacations and live a modest lifestyle.
So when they lost an estimated $80,000 in cattle, it was almost too much to handle.
â€śMy daughter is at Purdue University,â€ť said Hal. â€śAll her life, that was her dream. All I can say is thank God for scholarships because he almost took her dream away.â€ť
Sullivan said that heâ€™s talking about Joe Miller.
Miller is accused of stealing cattle from Sullivan and the Topeka Sale Barn in LaGrange County.
A follow up to a story we broke earlier today:
According to a probable cause affidavit, Chase Tanner Anglemyer, 21, took a woman from a residence in Bremen, beat her with a screwdriver and took her to another residence. While at that residence, Anglemyer is alleged to have shaved the woman's head, wrapped the cord of the electric trimmer around her neck and choked her until she was no longer conscious. When police arrived, Anglemyer allegedly said "She's dead."
The victim was revived and taken to a South Bend hospital.
That story and much more in Friday's Pilot News.
