PLYMOUTH â€” Although area residents pass by the Plymouth First United Methodist Church on Michigan Street in Plymouth day after day, they may not be aware of the rich history that goes with the building and congregations past and present.
The church will observe its 175th anniversary this year.Â After serving as a mission station with a circuit-riding pastor, William Farns-worth for five years, the church was formally organized in 1836 as the Methodist Episcopal Church.Â
NASHVILLE â€” Some old friends will be coming to the area for a musical reunion of sorts next weekend as the band Winchester Fletcher will play a Friday night show, Feb. 11 at the Bearâ€™s Den in Argos and then hit the stage at the Dandelion in Plymouth the next night, Saturday, Feb. 12.
The band features two familiar names to the area in Justin Hall and Bill Rice, who have been making a name for themselves with the band in Nashville. Hall decided it was time to come home for a visit.

PLYMOUTH â€”Â The Plymouth High School Boys Basketball team will host a Coaches vs. Cancer Night on Tuesday, Feb. 10 when the Pilgrims play host to the Class 4A, No. 5 Warsaw Tigers. Â

The varsity Pilgrims will be collecting donations during the junior varsity contest, which is slated to begin at 6:15 p.m., and coaches will wear pink t-shirts and shoelaces to promote the cause at the game.
CULVER -- Due to the sad demise of Culver Chuck, whose career was calamitously concluded last year, Punxsutawney Phil, plenipotentiary of prognostication for predicting winter's end, has pronounced that Culver Clem will serve on a probationary period for our area.
Culver Clem has candidly cautioned that his career curve doesn't coincide with Chuck's but will call with caution his conclusions for this year.
Explaining that Daylight Savings Time has drastically dulled and disrupted his disposition, he duly noted that he would retreat to his den for six more weeks.
PLYMOUTH â€” A mixed martial arts cage is hardly the place most people would describe as â€śan oasisâ€ť.
Being locked in a roughly 20-foot space with someone who wants to either beat or choke you unconscious or else wrench your joints out of socket hardly seems to fit the definition.
Nevertheless, thatâ€™s exactly how 19-year-old Plymouth native Ricky Miller described entering the cage for the first time, a 170-pound bout at the Century Center in South Bend December 11.
