PLYMOUTH â€” Updated wiring for the elevators and new automatic doors may be in store for the Marshall County Building, if the funds needed are approved.
During the county council meeting Monday, Rich Ulrich, maintenance director, brought up the need for the two elevators in the county building to be updated.
It was a fitting time to discuss the problem, since one of the elevators was again out of commission â€” blocked off by caution tape and a trash can.
â€śAs we sit here, that elevator is out of service for the 28th time in the last 10 weeks,â€ť said Ulrich.

The Lancers (2-6) surrendered 26 turnovers to Bethanyâ€™s 15, and the Bruins (4-7) capitalized with 15 points off those miscues â€”Â most of which were unforced â€” to suffer their second straight loss after a Northern State Conference setback at New Prairie Friday.
LAKEVILLE â€” Graceâ€™s baseball program has signed LaVille High Schoolâ€™s Quentin Herbster for the 2012-13 season.

â€śI felt like Grace was where I could grow as a baseball player and could further myself spiritually,â€ť Herbster said. â€śIâ€™m excited to make an impact right away and work towards possibly a masterâ€™s degree at Grace.â€ť
