PLYMOUTH â Jennifer Trump recently moved to Plymouth in search of one thing â a bigger kitchen.
âI needed a bigger kitchen so I could make my olive oils,â said the former Argos resident, slightly breathless from waiting on customers in her booth at the Marshall County Blueberry Festival Saturday afternoon.
Trump started making her own olive oil six years ago, after her father contracted cancer and needed to eat more healthily.
PLYMOUTH â Saturday nightâs severe thunderstorms caused the Blueberry Festival to be shut down about three hours earlier than normal closing time.
According to festival official Larry Faulstich, he and festival director Karen OâNeal made the decision to shut down the festival after a thunderstorm watch changed to a warning at about 6:30 p.m.
PLYMOUTH â Plymouth finished second place in the B Group at the Blueberry Festival Boys Soccer Tournament, missing the championship to Kankakee Valley on a score differential criterion Monday.
The Rockies beat South Bend Clay 3-0 Monday, while Kankakee Valley beat Lakeland Christian 6-4 to clinch the group championship. LaVille won the Group A championship, meanwhile, with victories over Culver Community, Mishawaka and Winamac, including the Lancersâ 5-1 win over the Cavaliers Monday.
PLYMOUTH â This past weekend, the Plymouth Speedway hosted the season championship for all four classes. The point races were close and many came down to final checkered flag.
Lions lose Bremen Invitational championship on pks
Bremen lost 4-1 on penalty kicks as Manchester won the championship at the Bremen Memorial Soccer Invitational Saturday.
The game ended in a 2-2 tie as Bremenâs Sam Lacher and Danny Reynoso scored in the 5th and 34th minutes, respectively to give the Lions a 2-0 halftime advantage, but Manchester scored in the 66th minute and netted another goal in the final minute to knot the game up.
C.J. Thornton recorded 11 saves in goal in the loss.
The Lions reached the championship with a 5-4 win over Trinity in the opening round.
Culver resident David Harling recognizes itâs important to have a sense of humor in his line of work, which is a good thing, since there were more than a few chuckles accompanying genuine amazement at the level of prominence his Argos-based company holds in the country and even the world.
Harling heads up Ameri-Can -- a name derived from its American and Canadian connections, lest the reader had other implications in mind -- whch supplies âluxuriousâ toilet trailers to for a range of uses, from small, outdoor events to presidential inaugurations, to the Queen of Englandâs jubilee.
Culverâs town council will likely invite representatives of Florida energy company Nextera to a council meeting in the very near future, to discuss the companyâs proposed project of placing 60-plus wind turbines in the Marshall and Fulton County areas.
Discussion of the project arose when audience member Patty Stallings expressed concerns over the recently-controversial project, which have included property values in the area, views of Lake Maxinkuckee affected by the turbines, and concerns over the health of those near the project.
Culver High School graduate (class of 1967) Edward Geiselman has been making waves nationally due to his innovations in the study of truth-telling, something he's developed through his years as a psychology professor at UCLA, where he's taught for nearly 33 years.
Geiselman has taught investigative interviewing techniques to members of the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, the Marines, the Los Angeles police and sheriff's departments, and several international agencies.
Due to weather the remainder of the Blueberry Festival events have been cancelled for today, Saturday September 3rd. The festival will open as usual tomorrow Sunday, September 4th with the regular scheduled events.
WARSAW â The true test of any young football team is how they start on the road.
Indeed, Plymouth had chances to go up early against both Bremen and Rochester in Weeks 1 and 2 but wasnât quite able to get off to the start it hoped for.
The Rockies had no such trouble Friday as they jumped off to an 8-0 start barely three minutes in on their way to a 22-7 first half lead at Warsaw, a fast start they rode to an eventual 29-13 Northern Lakes Conference-opening win.
