PLYMOUTH â€” Since February, a small group of six women has been meeting regularly to share their ideas on sustainable living. They call themselves the â€śFarm Chicksâ€ť although not every member lives on a farm. Group leader Phyllis Horvath pointed out that â€śBeing a farm girl isnâ€™t about where you live, but how you live.â€ť
PLYMOUTH â€”Â Seth Enders, of Plymouth, was tazed by Plymouth police Friday as officers attempted to arrest him for shoplifting.
Plymouth police officer Bridget Hite responded to a complaint of a male shoplifter at Walmart who had left the store running. She located Enders, who was running across the parking lot of Sherwood Tire. Hite shouted for Enders to stop, but he kept running.
PLYMOUTH â€” Next month will mark the third year for a successful downtown event â€” the Pâ€™Town Cruzâ€™n car show, planned for June 9. This yearâ€™s show will be larger than ever with the Auto Park co-sponsoring the event and chances to win TVs for both car owners and spectators.
Organizer Charlie Campiti said that City Center will again be the headquarters for the one-day event.
â€śJim Vinall has graciously offered us the use of his building for the third year in a row,â€ť said Campiti Monday afternoon.
He explained that the car show is open to everyone interested in cars.
Tritonâ€™s Quentyn Carpenter went 2 under par for the individual Northern State Conference championship and led the Trojans to the team title at the NSC boys golf meet at Mystic Hills Saturday.
Plymouthâ€™s Meagan Fisher earned Warsaw Regional berths in three of four events at the Rochester Girls Track and Field Sectional last Tuesday, winning the 800-meter run and running legs on the Lady Pilgrimsâ€™ winning 3200-meter and 1600-meter relays. She also finished just shy of a regional berth in the high jump.

The 8th annual Culver Kiwanis and Marco Bassmasters two-person team bass fishing tournament will be held Saturday, June 16 on Lake Maxinkuckee.

Many are aware of the impact Lake Maxinkuckee had on the life and music of legendary musician and composer Cole Porter. That legacy will be showcased in gala fashion, live onstage and in a dynamic, musical manner when the Cole Porter Radio Hour headlines what promises to be an enchanted evening Saturday, June 9 at 7:30 p.m., at the Legion Memorial Building on Culver Academies' campus, sponsored by the Antiquarian and Historical Society of Culver.
Some might think it odd that Culver's longest-running restaurant (and possibly the longest-running in Marshall County) is celebrating its 36th anniversary this summer -- after all, why not 35, last year? Or wait until 40?
But Brian McCormack, co-founder and owner of Papa's in Culver thinks making the restaurantâ€™s 36th a big bash fits the "unconventional" identity of the longtime local faÂvorite, which opened its doors this week (May 16) in 1976.
"We did an after-prom pizza party," he says of the resÂtaurant's very first day. "That was our first run at it."
