PLYMOUTH â€” Elkhart-based painter Michael Janowskiâ€™s work will be on display in February at the Heartland Artists Gallery in downtown Plymouth. Janowski, who initially started in art with drawing, said that he enjoys realistically depicting textures and fine detail with pastels.
â€śI could sit for hours upon end painting and not realize the time," said Janowski. "For me, the most time consuming part of the painting process is in the initial composition, not the painting.â€ť
PLYMOUTH â€”Â City Engineer Rick Gaul received several compliments on his work for the City during a council meeting this week.
Gaul had given members of the board end-of-year â€“report that showed a total of 2,463 hours that he had worked. Although not on the Public Works Board, Council Member Mike Delp asked if he could address the report.
Delp said, "Iâ€™m not complaining."
He then said the number of hours worked was up from 2,080 in the year before.
â€śThere are 300 plus hours that you essentially donated,â€ť Delp said.
Gaul is a salaried employee and does not qualify for overtime pay.

PLYMOUTH â€” Attendees of the Dancing with the Stars fundraising event this Saturday evening at Swan Lake will be treated to the fancy footwork of local group Chris and The Glitz, in addition to the main event â€” performances by partner dance teams. Chris and The Glitz wonâ€™t be competing, however. Instead, group members have asked friends and relatives to sponsor their performance, raising more than $1,000 so far.
â€śAll of the money will go to the Marshall County Neighborhood Center,â€ť said Chris Collier, the groupâ€™s choreographer.

LAKEVILLE â€” Last weekâ€™s snow-outs forced Clay Yeo to wait two extra days to break the 1,000-point barrier.
No big deal, breaking the mark at the Bi-County championship just made it that much more special for the Triton junior.
Yeo put up a season-high 39 points to complement 10 rebounds and four assists, including 22 of Class A No. 5 Tritonâ€™s last 24 points, and the Trojans held off a scrappy New Prairie challenge to earn their third straight title in a 68-66 championship thriller at the 47th annual tournament championship Monday at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium at LaVille.
LAKEVILLE â€” It hadnâ€™t even been a week since the Oregon-Davis got star player Jesse Avarone back.
When the sophomore combo player went down again with an ankle injury early in the third quarter Monday, the Class A No. 6 Lady Cats rallied around her, unseating defending champion Culver 49-36 to retake the Bi-County title Monday at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium at LaVille.
BREMEN â€” It was a back to work Monday for everybody it seems, including Plymouthâ€™s Pilgrims and Bremenâ€™s Lions meeting in a rare Monday boys varsity basketball game, and it was the Pilgrims who rolled up their sleeves and came away with a win on the road by a final of 66-38.
MUNCIE â€” Plymouth High School alum and Ball State senior guard Randy Davis has been named the Mid-American Conference West Division Player of the Week, the league office announced Monday.
This is the third time in his career that Davis has been honored by the MAC and the first this season.
Davis led the Cardinals to back-to-back road wins last week with victories at Central Michigan and Northern Illinois. His all-around play was a catalyst for the Cardinals as he averaged 9.0 points, 8.0 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game as Ball State improved to 4-1 in MAC play.
