Decades battle it out

August 5, 2011

PLYMOUTH — It was a battle of the ages Wednesday night, as graduates of the ‘80s, ‘90s and 2000s got together at Lincoln Junior High School to compete and have a little fun for the “Old Timers” volleyball game – another event in a week-long celebration of Plymouth Community Schools Alumni Association Alumni Week.
While at times a full field of the particular decade wasn’t available to play, the 1990s came out victorious when paired up against the others, along with a little help from the younger generation to round out a full team.

Confusion complicates legality of off-road type vehicles in Culver

August 3, 2011

If you'd be hard-pressed to tell the difference between an ATV, RTV, UTV, and MTV -- and whether any of them constitute a golf cart, or are allowed on Culver's streets under state statute -- you're in good company.

Airport sign denied by Plymouth BZA

August 3, 2011

PLYMOUTH — It’s back to the drawing board for the Plymouth Aviation Board if it wants BZA (Board of Zoning Appeals) approval for signs at the airport.
Airport Manager Dave Lattimer and Aviation Board President Tom Flynn appeared before the BZA Tuesday night seeking a variance from the development standard to increase the sign area from 32 square feet to 119 square feet for a monument sign. The sign — designed by Vanadco Signs of Argos — would measure 17 feet high.
The BZA Board considered the matter and then voted unanimously to deny the application.
