PLYMOUTH — The construction project to widen Pioneer Drive and cut back on Oak Road traffic which began in May 2010 is well on its way to completion, reported Ron Wireman from DLZ Engineering in the Marshall County Commissioners meeting Monday. The new Pioneer Drive will provide Marshall County residents with an easier route from Indiana 17 to the industries and retailers on U.S. 30.
“Last year we did basically half the project,” said Wireman, noting that S.R. 17 to Lincoln Highway is now open.
BLOOMINGTON â€” There arenâ€™t many records left for Waverly Neer to break.
Even on a historic day that featured a total of six record-breaking performances, the Culver Academies senior managed to stand out, knocking off not one but two state standards on her way to championships in both the 1600 meters and the 3200 meters at the 38th Annual IHSAA Girls Track and Field State Finals at Robert C. Haugh Track and Field Complex in Bloomington.
ELKHART â€” Culver Community earned its first sectional title in 26 years by battling from behind. On Saturday, the Cavaliers simply dug themselves too big a hole to climb out of.
Eastside plated six runs batting through the order during a big third inning, and although Culver scored three runs in the fifth and sixth, it was too little, too late as the Cavs suffered a season-ending 7-3 loss at the Class 2A Jimtown Baseball Regional in Elkhart.
Eastside went on to fall in 10-2 in the championship to Hanover Central at the tourney, while Culver closed out a banner year at 13-14.

PLYMOUTH â€” The Yellow River Festival has announced its 2011 music and entertainment schedule.
This yearâ€™s lineup will feature performances by regional favorites Gold Mine Pickers and Kennedyâ€™s Kitchen. Gold Mine Pickers play what they refer to as â€śa rich, fun blend of Americana, bluegrass, folk, old-time and Irish music â€” with dashes of country, and jam for good measure.â€ť Kennedyâ€™s Kitchen blends traditional Irish folk with hearty Celtic-flavored original tunes.
PLYMOUTH â€” â€śBe careful out thereâ€ť was the catch phrase of the character on the old television drama â€śHill Street Bluesâ€ť as he sent his fellow police officers out to their jobs after the shift briefing.
It was also the message of FBI Special Agent Tim Theriault as he commended sixth grade students at Riverside Intermediate School on their knowledge of how to be safe surfing the internet.
LAKEVILLE â€” When state funding for school corporations was cut drastically last year, Union-North United School Corporation Superintendent, Dr. Terry Barker, had to make some hard decisions to uphold his pledge to get the corporation's budget back into the black. One of the most controversial decisions was to reduce the kindergarten program to half-days rather than keep the full-day classes. During the school board meeting on Thursday night, Dr. Barker asked the board to approve reinstating the full-time program for the 2011-12 school year.
PLYMOUTH â€” They say hitting is contagious, but once the Rochester bats caught fire Monday, it was downright virulent.
Rochester cranked out nine hits for eight runs in the fifth and sixth innings, tying up the Pilgrims at 6-all on a Chad Miller grand slam during a five-run fifth, then taking the lead for the first and last time with a three-run sixth as they ousted host Plymouth 9-8 in a Class 3A Sectional 19 semifinal at Bill Nixon Field.
The Zebras ultimately dropped the final 8-0 against Marian, which advanced through John Glenn in the other semifinal Monday morning.
