HAMLET â€” James David, a 16-year-old sophomore at Oregon-Davis High School, has missed a lot of school this year. He started feeling intense pain in his leg during the fall semester, and the pain is now so bad that he cannot stand without the help of a brace.
â€śIâ€™m out of school for the rest of this year, weâ€™re pretty sure,â€ť said James grimly.
Oregon-Davis fans cheer on the Lady Cats in the waning moments of their Sectional 51 quarterfinal win over Culver Community Wednesday.
The Cats face Westville in the semifinals tonight at 7 p.m. CT.
CULVER â€” The Culver Girls Academy swim program can boast plenty of impressive accolades over the course of its history.
The record board on the wall at the James R. Lowenstine Pool is lined with the names of All-American after All-American. But one bona fide that has eluded the program over its storied history is a sectional championship â€” until now.
Plymouth tops 4-way field
Cassi Quisell won two events and placed third in another on her way to first place in the all-around competition, and Plymouth beat out Warsaw 99.15-94.95 to top the field in a four-way meet at Plymouth Thursday.
Nicky Davis placed second in both the vault and the uneven bars and third in the floor exercise behind Quisell to finish third in the all-around.
Maggie Morrow finished third on the balance beam in the win.
â€˘ PLYMOUTH 99.15, WARSAW 94.95,
FAIRFIELD 29.1, TIPPECANOE VALLEY 28.3
If the new face around town in recent months has that strangely familiar look, you may be a WSBT-TV viewer, and you may have seen Erik Larson, as likely as not alongside his wife (as of New Years Eve) Savanna, formerly Shepard.
PLYMOUTH â€” Nearly 300 individuals in Marshall County were arrested for operating while intoxicated in 2011, according to a recent report from Sheriff Tom Chamberlin. OWI was the number one reason for arrests last year, followed closely by failure to appear and driving while suspended. Possession of methamphetamine was at the bottom of the top 10, however, which Chamberlin said is an improvement from past years.

PLYMOUTH â€” The gods of Mount Olympus were known for some pretty quirky antics, but even those were nothing compared to the off beat shenanigans of the gods and goddesses of the latest Plymouth High School Theatre Department production, â€śOut of Our Greeking Mindsâ€ť playing Friday and Saturday at the PHS Auditorium. Show time is 7 p.m. both nights.
PLYMOUTH â€” Members of the Marshall County Election Board came before the County Commissioners this week to request final approval of the polling sites for 2012.
Members Julie Fox, Nelson Chipman, and Roger Wise had given the commissioners a proposed list several weeks ago. Some polling sites have been combined for use with several precincts. Precincts are determined by the number of registered voters.
All registered voters will receive a card in the mail from Votersâ€™ Registration informing them of the polling site where they can cast their ballot.
HAMLET â€” Thereâ€™s an expression that says there are few things tougher in sport than to beat a team three times in a single season.
Oregon-Davis repudiated that old claim in convincing fashion Wednesday night, handing Culver a 55-36 Sectional 51 loss in a quarterfinal at The Den.
The No. 4 Lady Catsâ€™ margin of victory was even greater than the back-to-back wins they took from the Cavaliers Jan. 23 and 24 and gave OD the right to advance to face Westville in a semifinal Friday at 7 p.m. CT.
