PLYMOUTH â€” The annual Shop With a Cop auction heard on WTCA am1050 radio Friday netted some $15,000. The proceeds will be used to take local needy children shopping on Dec. 10.
This marked the fourth year that the station has provided air time for the auction. The first year started almost by accident when FOP Lodge #195 was given three items to use for raising funds. That year, the auction raised $600. From that generous donation the idea was born and by the next year the community had donated items that brought in $10,000.
PLYMOUTH â€” What is more dangerous, a storm â€śwatchâ€ť or a â€śwarning?â€ť
These two terms, along with â€śadvisory,â€ť were recently redefined on a statewide level in response to last winterâ€™s heavy snowfall. Marshall County Emergency Management Agency director Clyde Avery visited the county commissioners meeting to present the redefined categories. The traffic alert definitions are being adjusted partly so that all counties in the state agree on how they are determined.
