PLYMOUTH â Building contractors in the area will have the opportunity to attend an free informational session next Wednesday, where speakers from several different associations will present new and updated guidance for those in the field.
This is the first such event to be held by the county, said Marshall County building inspector Chuck DeWitt.
âBeing new to the job, I just kind of listened to areas we had problems with,â said DeWitt. âUsually things we have problems with are (because of a) lack of education and knowledge about what needs to be done, not malice.â

ST. LOUIS â Plymouth grad Bill Finkbinerâs road from PHS to feature film has been a long and eventful one â and one he almost didnât take.

I had never really considered that and I told her to give me three reasons why I should. She said, âyouâre good, youâll win and... youâll win.ââ
CULVER â Culverâs Rob Reinhold may have summed up the enormity of Saturdayâs benefit for his family in describing the event: âOverwhelming.â

PLYMOUTH â A usually very "played in" kid's room, sparkling with freshly cleaned floors and walls. Tidied-up animal cages. Calm dogs, worn out from exercise. A group of fifth graders learning about decimals in a new way.
These were some of the small, yet meaningful contributions that Plymouth Key Club students made to the community Monday as they did service tasks in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. About 60 students worked at the Marshall County Humane Society, the Boys and Girls Club, and Riverside Intermediate School.
