PLYMOUTH â€” With Warsaw the easy presumed victor, both Plymouthâ€™s and NorthWoodâ€™s girls track coaches knew Tuesdayâ€™s Northern Lakes Conference three-way would come down to a showdown between the Lady Pilgrims and the Panthers.
Plymouth got a big boost from senior transfer Hannah Christy as the Pilgrims trumped NorthWood 70-62, while the Lady Tigers dominated as expected to move to 6-0 in the NSC on Senior Night at Plymouth.
There were plenty of questions, a number of suggestions, and ample emotions running high at Monday night's meeting of the Culver Community School board, but at the end of the night, few easy answers.
PLYMOUTH â€” The efforts of three area businesses to continue with their awarded tax abatements was approved by the Plymouth Common Council.
Aearo Technologies, Glenmark Industries and LSAC Plymouth all met the requirements for their abatements to continue. It is current city policy to review all businesses awarded abatements by the city on a yearly basis to determine if they are in â€śsubstantial complianceâ€ť with the terms of the abatement.
PLYMOUTH â€” The re-working of the city ordinance on the Community Improvement Commission will continue to undergo improvement.
Scheduled for second and third reading at last nightâ€™s meeting of the Plymouth Common Council the measure was sent back to the drawing board â€” of sorts â€” for City Attorney Nelson Chipman.
Discussion of the ordinanceâ€™s language was dissected by the Council and the decision was made to amend the work before hearing a second reading.

LOGANSPORT â€” Vera L. Chanley, 73, Logansport, died at 8:15 p.m. Friday, April 22, 2011 at her residence.
WALKERTON â€” Steph Radant closed the gap, and Cayla Ochs opened a slim lead on the backstretch, narrowly beating North Judsonâ€™s Danielle Sallee to the hand-off. Katie Dreessen created a little space, and John Glennâ€™s 1600 relay squad edged out Judsonâ€™s by a mere 2 seconds to clinch the Lady Falcons a thrilling 65-63 team victory in a dual track meet at Glenn Monday.

ST. LOUIS â€” It certainly wasnâ€™t a normal â€śreunion.â€ť
Beth Chamblin (PHS class of 1986), Nolan Barrios (PHS class of 1986), Heather King (PHS class of 1995) and Esther Rodriguez-Thompson (PHS class of 1983) recently had a meeting â€śon the runâ€ť â€” literally. The four comprised the team of Four 40-somethings from Plymouth that placed 20 of 171 co-ed teams in the marathon relay event of the Go! St. Louis Marathon and Family Fitness Weekend. The April event attracted over 23,000 participants from 47 states and 12 countries in 2010.
PLYMOUTH â€” Itâ€™s baffling to recognize that the same pesky granules of sand â€” the ones that somehow inevitably find their way into every unwelcome place imaginable while youâ€™re visiting the beach â€” can be transformed into such a worthwhile material as glass. Itâ€™s common to think of all the everyday practical uses we have for glass, from eye glasses and insulation to fiber optics, but there is great beauty to be extracted and wrought from glass as well. A perfect example of this is the glass bead.
