PLYMOUTH â€” The Plymouth Post 27 Diamond Spyders picked up another win last night to run its season-opening win streak to three games with a 5-3 decision over Crown Point Post 20.
The Diamond Spyders used a big first inning to get the job done, plating all five of their runs in the first and holding on for the win at home at Bill Nixon Field.
â€śWe looked good offensively in the first inning,â€ť said Plymouth coach Tony Plothow.Â â€śIt looked like we lost focus at the plate in the later part of the game, and we canâ€™t have that against some of the other teams that we will face this year.â€ťÂ
FRANKLIN â€” LaVille golfer Zach Gurtner just wanted to make state once before he finished his high school career.

Graduating Culver Comm. High School senior Joe Krsek (pictured here, second from left) says he didn't expect to win this gently used vehicle from County Auto Center in Plymouth, even though he had plenty of A's on his report card. Every A submitted earned seniors from Plymouth, Triton, Culver, Argos, and Bremen High Schools an entry in a drawing for a vehicle, according to Joe Martin, Jr. (far left) of County Auto, who noted about $10,000 was budgeted towards the car (whose taxes Country Auto also paid).
This 43-inch Musky was caught by Dick Shroeder of Wanatah (doing a Figure 8 boatside). Holding the fish is Steve Syrja of Grass Lake, Mich. Also pictured is Dave "Bird" Claussen of Valparaiso. "We have been chasing Muskies all over the Midwest for 30 years," Schroeder said. "I love this picture since it is a decent fish hooked at boatside, I picked the spot and it's a great picture of two of my best fishing buddies."
MARSHALL CO. â€”Â Marshall County council members heard a request for funds from the probation department during their regular meeting Monday. Representatives from the department Mary Jane Walsworth and James Pheibush said that so far this year, they have used twice the bed days for detaining juveniles as the entire year last year.
â€śWe have no explanation for why (this number) was so low last year and so high this year,â€ť said Walsworth.

PLYMOUTH â€” The third annual P-Town Cruzâ€™n car show was a huge success Saturday, as 143 total cars were entered into the non-competitive event. And if the amount of pizza consumed is an indication of attendance, it was a successful draw as well.
Many attendees walked away with door prizes, including two 32-inch TVs. Car owners were automatically entered into a drawing to win one of the TVs, and spectators entered to win by visiting area businesses. The more businesses they visited, the more chances they had of winning.
