PLYMOUTH â€” The Plymouth Board of Public Works and Safety voted unanimously to move paramedic Erik Cox to full-time status with the Plymouth Department. Seeking the status change was Fire Chief Andy Metsker, who said Coxâ€™s record of service has been well documented and there have been continual updates during his time with the department.
Cox was hired in February of this year; but had been volunteering in the Department since 2003.
KNOX â€” It was 1945 when Viola (Hawman) Serrano, who now resides in Knox, first got her pilotâ€™s license. She was 17 years old, and a presentation by the Civil Air Patrol at her Michigan high school piqued her curiosity.
Serrano, now 83, is losing her memory â€” but one thing she does remember is how to fly a plane. Serrano navigated a flight out of the Fulton County Airport last Friday with her daughter, Mirna Dault, in tow.
PLYMOUTH â€” Brieanna Slonaker, 11, of Plymouth, has spent a lot of time at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis since she was diagnosed with Crohnâ€™s disease in 2005.

Fortunately, said mom Cindy Slonaker, the arts and crafts available for children at Rileyâ€™s help keep Brieannaâ€™s spirits up.

The Cancer Association of Marshall County held their annual board meeting Oct. 25. The group began assisting cancer patients within the county in 1962. Funding began with monies from the estates of Welcome R. Ebersole, Grace Moslander, and Roy Hawk. The Zeta Zeta Chapter of Delta Theta Tau implemented the program by providing transportation to cancer patients and providing financial assistance to patient for the purchase of drugs related to cancer care. Funds to provide transportation are not utilized as often since local hospitals are conveniently located.
