PLYMOUTH â€” â€śWe want you exploring. We want you learning new things and new software.â€ť
Students involved in Lincoln Junior Highâ€™s â€śGeniusâ€ť program sponsored by Apple Computer heard that urging from Plymouth Schools Media Specialist Ben Waymouth as they went through their first day of training from Kevin Sheppard â€” a consultant contracted with Apple â€” on trouble shooting the schoolâ€™s new Macbook computers. Students were chosen to participate in the program, making them the first line of help when another student is having â€śtechnical difficultiesâ€ť with their computer.
PLYMOUTH â€”Â Just consider Clay Yeo Triton's one-time not-so-secret weapon off the bench.
Bumped from the starting lineup following a weekend bout with illness, the 6-foot-5 super sophomore erupted for 20 of his game-high 25 points in the second half and ripped down four rebounds to lead the Class A No. 2 Trojans to a 55-37 boys basketball win over Plymouth at The Rock Tuesday.
"We thought we'd give (Plymouth) the element of surprise," Triton head coach Jason Groves joked. "I'm sure they weren't expecting (Yeo) to do anything off the bench.
WALKERTON â€” John Glenn may eventually be able to use its team speed against opponents this year, but South Bend Riley gave the Falcons a dose of their own medicine Tuesday.
The athletic Wildcats showcased their quickness and athleticism while cranking up the tempo on both ends of the floor for a 79-49 victory in Walkerton.
"I know they don't want to run with us per se, but they also don't want to walk it," said Riley head boys basketball coach Mark Johnson. "I think we presented a tempo to where they were a little bit rushed. That's a credit to our young men."
PLYMOUTH â€” The Plymouth EMS/Fire Department may be losing an important employee, but they are gaining a key volunteer.
A seemingly permanent fixture in the Plymouth firehouse â€” Assistant Chief John Grolich â€” is looking at his retirement, but he is proof that public service is in his DNA.
â€śThere is some traveling that my wife and I want to do, but I plan on staying on as a volunteer,â€ť said Grolich. â€śI think I still have something to offer and Iâ€™m going to try to help as much as I can.â€ť
PLYMOUTH â€” Only six years ago, the Plymouth Community Schools Corporation was on Title I school probation. Within two short years, they were off probation.
Superintendent Daniel Tyree said, â€śWe formed a committee of representatives of the teachersâ€™ union, parents, teachers, administrators and community members to work on a plan. Thanks to the work of our administrators and teachers following the plan, today we are scoring some of the highest scores possible.â€ť

GOSHEN â€” Locked in a 19-all tie at the half, Triton head coach Adam Heckaman decided to take a gamble in the second half.
Switch up to a man-to-man defense to deny easy buckets in the paint and take a chance against Bethany Christian senior small forward Marla ZumFelde.
The gamble worked as sophomore Shana Anderson held ZumFelde to just four of her game-high 14 points after the break, and the Lady Trojans surged past the host Bruins for a 50-39 win at Goshen Monday.
