PLYMOUTH â€” For several months now, residents of Marshall County have been aware that beginning July 1, insured individuals (including children) will no longer be vaccinated by their local health department. This guideline was to bring local health departments into compliance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) requirements. On June 30, the day before the change was to go into effect, the Marshall County Health Department received notification that the changes would be postponed until January 2012.
PLYMOUTH â€”Â Plymouth Post 27 celebrated the Fourth of July with a runner-up finish at the teamâ€™s first annual Patriot Tournament.

There are few entities so quintisentially "Culver" -- and so cherished by generations -- as that small root beer stand near the beach, known since 2003 as The Original Root Beer Stand.
This summer marks the 55th anniversary of the business operating in Culver, at 824 Lake Shore Drive. Prior to that, then-owner Donald "Casey" Jones had operated it in Plymouth, but moved the building, foundation, and equipment by truck from Plymouth to Culver! At the time, it was an A&W root beer stand, as it would stay for some time.

ARGOS â€”Â As July rolls in, there is one thing you can count on in Indiana (besides more rain) â€” county fairs.
Marshall County is no different, offering fair goers an opportunity to overeat, attend livestock shows, view all of Marshall County 4-H membersâ€™ spectacular projects, and much more. Though the fair schedules are available for pick-up in the Extension Office, around Marshall County businesses, and online at www.ag.purdue.edu/counties/marshall, we thought we would give you a sneak peak on the fun that will be happening July 10 to 16 at the 4-H Fairgrounds in Argos.
PLYMOUTH â€” New flood plain maps for Plymouth are scheduled to go into effect November 16, according to Keith Hammond, building commissioner, at the city council meeting Monday. The current maps have been in use since 1977. According to city attorney Nelson Chipman, the ordinance to accept the new maps must be passed in order for Plymouth to receive national flood insurance.
â€śWe are going to have more areas that are considered flood plains than before,â€ť said Hammond later, adding that building on these areas comes with special regulations.
