CULVER -- Due to the sad demise of Culver Chuck, whose career was calamitously concluded last year, Punxsutawney Phil, plenipotentiary of prognostication for predicting winter's end, has pronounced that Culver Clem will serve on a probationary period for our area.
Culver Clem has candidly cautioned that his career curve doesn't coincide with Chuck's but will call with caution his conclusions for this year.
Explaining that Daylight Savings Time has drastically dulled and disrupted his disposition, he duly noted that he would retreat to his den for six more weeks.
PLYMOUTH â€” A mixed martial arts cage is hardly the place most people would describe as â€śan oasisâ€ť.
Being locked in a roughly 20-foot space with someone who wants to either beat or choke you unconscious or else wrench your joints out of socket hardly seems to fit the definition.
Nevertheless, thatâ€™s exactly how 19-year-old Plymouth native Ricky Miller described entering the cage for the first time, a 170-pound bout at the Century Center in South Bend December 11.

PLYMOUTH â€” Calvary Lutheranâ€™s pre-school program is hoping to put Riverside Intermediate School on the bench â€” literally.
Riversideâ€™s ecology program is currently collecting plastic lids â€” for example those on beverage bottles, spray cans and margarine tubs â€” for a special recycling project.

PLYMOUTH â€” Twice is nice, but the third time is definitely the charm.
Just ask Plymouth senior Damon Howe.
