If a Plymouth High School girl attends every available formal dance, it could mean purchasing six formal gowns before she graduates.
Not only is this cost out of reach for many, it is also impractical for a young woman to own and store so many dresses she will likely wear just once.
Plymouthâ€™s Beta Delta chapter of the local womenâ€™s philanthropic organization, Tri Kappa, has a solution: The second annual Promen-ade To Prom â€” a chance to recycle or buy a gently used dress for just $10.
Each year, the Marshall County Sheriff issues a yearly jail report to the County Commissioners and County Council.
The numbers compiled can be revealing.
Below are highlights from outgoing Sheriff Jon VanVactorâ€™s jail report for 2010.
During the year of 2010 there were a total of 2,070 inmates processed into the jail. The average daily book in for the jail was 5.7 prisoners. The average daily inmate population was 100 persons.

Former John Glenn girls basketball coach Dan Hutton, right, looks on during a game last year along with longtime assistant and current Glenn head coach John Willoughby, left.
Hutton lost his battle with cancer Tuesday night. Huttonâ€™s coaching career spans a combined 22 years and his resume boasts three Bi-County Championships, two sectional and two regional championships and a 158-111 overall high school coaching record.
Hutton was honored on Nov. 30 with the John Glenn Falcon of the Year Award and the Northern State Conference Service Award.
BOURBON â€” In a game teeming with subplots, Griffyn Carpenter reached the 1,000-point mark, and the Trojans got off to a quick start and didnâ€™t look back as they took it to Triton head coach Jason Grovesâ€™ alma mater Glenn and Falconsâ€™ head coach Travis Hannah, himself a Triton alum.
With inclement weather reeking havoc on both teamsâ€™ schedules â€” indeed, Wednesdayâ€™s Northern State Conference game was a rescheduling of a postponement Saturday â€” both coaches wanted to see their team hit the floor ready.
BREMEN â€” Many who are active in Boy Scouts for years donâ€™t finish up requirements for the Eagle Scout award. Jason Ringer, who recently received his Eagle, said he could understand why.
â€śThe hardest part is sticking with it for all of the years even as friends backed out,â€ť said Ringer, a senior at Bremen High School. â€śI almost stopped when I fell behind on the project.â€ť
Reaching the Eagle level is demanding.
