PLYMOUTH â€” For years Marshall County has taken advantage of a state program that allows the county to receive a 50 percent match for Emergency Management Agency Director Clyde Averyâ€™s salary.
As long as the county met a certain point total on the stateâ€™s preparedness guidelines and Avery has continued to meet the standards set for his profession by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) â€” which the county and Avery have exceeded â€” then the state would pay half of Averyâ€™s salary.

FORT WAYNE â€” Plymouth Post 27 played its sixth game in five days, and some fatigue may have shown in its 9-5 loss to the Ohio River Bandits in Fort Wayneâ€™s Parkview Stadium Monday.

"I believe that small hometown festivals are making a comeback, folks crave the Mayberry days of wandering around the 'county fair' and seeing what their neighbors have to offer."
