At-risk residents provided with emergency radios
By Lydia Beers Staff Writer
MARSHALL CO. — Marshall County Emergency Management all-hazDirector Clyde Avery has all-haz resiard alert radios available to resi dents who might be most in need of severe weather warnings. “We are looking to distribute these radios to people who live in mobile or modular homes or those with special needs,” said Avery. “Mobile and modular homes are not the best place to be in severe construcweather because of the construc tion. We want those people to have advance warning to get to better shelter. People with special needs preparedmaybe need a little more prepared ness time, and we want to give them as much advance warning as possible that severe weather may be occurring.” Avery said the radios, which give out National Weather Service information, are useful especially at night when most people are not watching TV or listening to the radio. “(The radio) will give you voice instructions on what to do,” said Avery. “People tend to rely heavily on outdoor warning sirens (in emergency situations) but they were not designed to reach people inside buildings. Also, not all areas in Marshall County have outdoor sirens.” The radios — valued at approximately $40 — are purchased by the Indiana Department of Homeland Security through a grant and given out to counties participating in the giveaway. The Marshall County Emergency Management office has participated for several years, said Avery. “We can send out other messages (besides weather alerts) if needed,” noted Avery. The radio’s main purpose is to warn citizens of any situation that affects public safety. Avery said the radios can be set to only go off in an emergency situation. “We want people to take emergency protective measures to keep themselves and their families safe, so they don’t become part of the problem when emergencies happen,” said Avery. To receive a radio or with questions, contact the emergency management office at 574-936-3740.
PLYMOUTH — Writers often use journals to record random thoughts, ideas and creative sparks. Why should they have all the fun? That is the premise behind a new class scheduled for Saturday at the Heartland Artists gallery on the corner of Michigan and LaPorte Streets in downtown Plymouth. Instructor Kerri Bash will teach how to make and use an art journal. Crafted out of various papers and fabric and using a variety of mediums, by the end of the six-hour class, artists of all levels will walk out with a journal they can use to feel inspired, PILOT PHOTO/LOIS TOMASZEWSKI overcome emotional obstacles or Kerri Bash, director of the school of art for the heartland Artists Gallery, simply remember moments of works on an example of an art journal. inspiration.

Bremen Republicans to fill council vacancy
Caucus is scheduled for 5 p.m. Monday, April 22; three vying for seat
By shawn mcGraTh Bremen enquirer
BREMEN — Republicans are expected to gather in less than two weeks to select a replacement council member on the Bremen Town Council. David R. Holmes, Marshall County Republican party chair, said three people have expressed interest in replacing Trend Weldy on the Bremen Town Council. The town council approved hiring Weldy, who was elected to his first term on the council in 2011, to replace Rich Martin, Bremen’s longtime director of operations. Weldy was one of two council members who applied for the position. Heath Thorntown also sought the job. Council President Rick Graverson and council member Jim Leeper voted to hire Weldy at the council’s March 11 meeting. Weldy abstained from voting on the issue. The three Bremen Republican precinct committee members will meet at 5 p.m. Monday, April 22, at Bremen Town Hall, 123 S. Center St., to select a new council person. The caucus meeting is open to the public, but the public will not be allowed to speak during the meeting, Holmes said. The party chair said the three precinct committee members are his wife, Jan Holmes, his son, Dan Holmes, and Jill Hassel, the wife of Bremen Police Chief Matt Hassel. Each of the candidates will be given a chance to address the precinct committee members, Holmes said. The party chair declined to identify the three people interested in replacing Weldy, however. “The three that contacted me I’ve known for years,” Holmes said late last week. Anyone interested in replacing Weldy should file a declaration of candidacy no later than three days before the April 22 meeting, Holmes said. Weldy’s term began Jan. 1, 2012, and ends in 2016. The Republican party chair declined to estimate how many more candidates could express interest in the position. “It’s not out of the ordinary (for three people to be interested),” Holmes said. “You seldom have more than three or four, though. “I don’t have any preconceived notion. If it’s five more, great. The more interest in local government, the better.” Bremen Town Council members are paid $3,000 annually. The council’s president earns $3,600, Bremen Clerk-Treasurer Janet
Anglemyer said late last week. Weldy will earn $2,059 every two-week pay period until Martin officially leaves. Weldy’s salary will then match Martin’s current salary of $2,559 every two weeks, or about $66,534 annually, Anglemyer previously said. Town attorney Anthony Wagner previously said close to 20 people applied to replace Martin, who has been the town’s manager for about 35 years. Wagner said in March that Weldy is expected to begin as director of operations in June, with Martin staying until late August, helping train his replacement.
Check out seeds from the Bourbon Library
Project planning meeting set for 10:30 a.m. Saturday at the Library
By Lydia Beers Staff Writer
BOURBON – Next month, you’ll be able to borrow more than books at the Bourbon Public Library. Library Director Heather Barron is recruiting local volunteers to help library staff start a “seed library.” “We are going to put seed packets in old card

catalogues,” said Barron. “(People) are checking them out with the agreement that they will bring back some of the seeds they harvest.” Barron said she’s contacted master gardeners and others interested in gardening in the area in hopes that they will take the idea and run with it. A meeting to plan the project is set for this Saturday at 10:30 a.m. at the library, and it’s open to anyone who wants to volunteer. “Ideally, I’d like to get this set up around Mother’s Day,” said Barron, adding, “More and more of these (seed libraries) are popping up around the U.S., and I thought, this is something that needs to happen.” Barron’s long-term plan with the project is to use it to teach children and fami-
lies about healthy food and what it takes to grow your own food. She hopes that area schools and daycares will get involved by taking students to the library on a field trip to experience the seed library. “This is about access to nutritious food, and learning about gardening,” said Barron. “The access to the food is basically free, except for your labor.” There won’t be a cost to borrow seeds, but Barron noted borrowers must have a Bourbon Public Library card. “I want this to be something that brings the community together,” said Barron. “We need other’s knowledge right now… we are looking for people to help set this up, maybe
make some flyers.” The seed library is ideal for a family project, said Barron, and reading is a part of the project too. Children will need to learn how to read the seed packets, and they have the option of checking out books that correspond to the type of plants they are trying to grow. Barron said she would like to offer vegetable seeds, but there may be flower seeds available as well. She’s looking for people to donate the seeds to get the project started. In future years, seeds will depend on what patrons bring back after their harvest. To get involved in the seed library project, contact Barron at 574-342-5655 or visit the library.
Seed packets for Bourbon Public Library’s new “seed library” will be stored in old card catalogs at the library.

Bourbon patrolman’s resignation prompts Town Council discussion
By Ed SchErEr-BErry Correspondent
BOURBON – Personnel matters were on the agenda Tuesday night as the Bourbon Town Council met in regular session. The Council accepted the resignation of police patrolman Ben McIntyre, who is moving to the Plymouth Police Department. Discussion ensued about his replacement and whether to hire a full-time officer or retain a four-person force and supplement with part-time officers. The issues involve budgeting for benefits on the one hand and scheduling complications on the other. The matter was tabled to be taken under advisement. In other police personnel business, seven applications have been received for the reserve police force—a new program in the department. Home visits, background checks and interviews have been conducted in all but one instance. Five of the applicants were approved pending their completion of a 40-hour reserve officer training program instituted by the department. One applicant was asked to reapply in one year, and the last candidate was in the hospital and could not complete the interview process. In an unrelated matter, Police Chief Bill Martin requested permission to investigate and order new 45 caliber handguns for the department. They would be paid with funds in his budget set aside for the purpose. He also requested that officers be allowed to purchase their current weapons if they wish. Both requests were approved. In other action: Mike Shoda, Water Department Superintendent, reported that a phone dialer and alarms have been installed at the south lift station to improve reporting. He also requested permission to have the department’s trench box cut into two boxes. The trench box is required by OSHA regulations for the safety of employees digging trenches. Bids have been received as follows: Fast Times - $4,000; Klingerman $4,250; and Faulkner - $6,000. The bid was awarded to Klingerman. • A report submitted by Roger Terry, Street Department Superintendent, indicated that the department will submit press releases to pertinent newspapers reminding Bourbon residents of the town rules on handling yard waste. Terry is also requesting the major purchase of a new leaf machine, since the current unit is 20 years old. The cost of the new unit will be $17,000 to $25,000, of which he has $10,000 set aside in his budget. He will be exploring possible grants to help with the cost. The matter was tabled until a later meeting. • In an ongoing matter, the alley behind Harmony Press buildings is in need of repair. Harmony Press has offered to pay $2,000 of the costs. Bids have been received for asphalting the alley for $7,490, $11,900, and $9,040. The remaining cost beyond the $2,000 would have to come from the Street Department budget. The matter was tabled until the next meeting. • Two town residents appeared before the Council with action requests. Brian Kitch requested a renewal of the tax abatement granted to Bates Corporation for its real estate. The request was granted. Steve Neidig requested a building permit to raze an old barn on his property. The request was granted. • Code Enforcement Officer Bill Keyser reported on the abandoned building at 208 N. Main Street (the old Bourbon News Mirror building). The owners have 30 days to begin dealing with the property, which expires next week. It was decided that Keyser will write a letter to the owners. He also reported on the annual business/industry lunch scheduled for May 16 at the Matchett Center. Town and area business representatives are invited to hear a presentation by the Marshall County Economic Development Corporation and brainstorm ways to enhance the business environment of Bourbon. He also announced that in the future, building permits for the entire county will be handled online rather than in each township. • Also, for the first time, Bourbon has combined with other municipalities to order winter salt through the state at a reduced rate. The salt will also be kinder to the sewage system, since it will contain no sand mixture. Clerk-Treasurer Kim Berger introduced several items of business. Shells, Inc., which had contracted with the town to help pay for repair of storm drains near its factory, has not made contracted payments. Town attorney Mark Wagner will write them a letter. A patron has requested that the town erect a sign stating hours of operation of Westwood Park, since activity has been noticed late at night in the woods near the park. The woods are not town property, and the town has no jurisdiction over them. Real Services has requested that the town tune the piano in the Matchett Senior Center, since it is frequently used to entertain clients. This request was approved.

Two teaching positions eliminated, but retirements compensate
By Ed SchErEr-BErry Correspondent
TRITON— Triton Schools are eliminating two positions, not necessarily two teachers, according to a clarification provided by Superintnendent Donna Burroughs Wednesday evening. "We did not 'cut"'any teachers at Triton," Burroughs clarified in an email to The Pilot News. "In fact, we actually have postings for teacher positions at both buildings at the present time.” The confusion came from the elimination of a teaching position at the elementary school level and the doing away with the Industrial Arts class at the Jr./Sr. level. While there will be fewer teaching positions available at Triton schools, there will be no loss of jobs. “The number of retirements at Triton made it possible to not have to cut anyone from the payroll because of the budget," Burroughs explained. "We eliminated one elementary classroom section and eliminated industrial arts, but we did not cut any teachers." Among the other action taken up at Tuesday's school board meeting: • To round out the financial considerations, three actions were unanimously approved which will not adversely affect school corporation personnel. Burroughs requested and was given permission to apply for available grants throughout the year—a necessary formality. The Board adopted a supplemental bond resolution to refinance the Pension Bond of 2004 which will save the corporation $37,000. Lunch prices were increased for next year by 5¢ per meal, which would mean $1.65 at the elementary school and $1.85 at the Jr. /Sr. High. Affecting the entire corporation, however, is the national budget “sequester,” which Burroughs reported would result in a loss to the corporation of five percent in special education funding and five percent in Title I funding. • Michael Chobanov, Triton Jr. /Sr. High School principal, noted that three staff members will attend a workshop next week at Ben Davis University (early college high school) in Indianapolis. Triton continues to be an interested candidate to become an official Early College High School. This state-recognized program will enable high school freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors to complete college-level courses for credit and for an associate college degree upon high school graduation. Chobanov also reported that interviews are going well for a junior/senior high school counselor to replace Hugh Rettinger, who is retiring this year. Two candidates are still in the running. •Superintendent Burroughs was appointed trustee of ESCRFT, the corporation’s new liability insurance carrier. • A $3200 donation was gratefully accepted from Lake City Heating Corporation for chartering the bus which took the boys basketball team to state finals in Indianapolis. • A decision to award contracts on the sidewalk lighting project was tabled until the May meeting because all bids have not yet been received. • The revision to the Board policies was passed on its first reading. Passage on the second reading and approval are expected at the May meeting. The policy changes mainly address discrimination in hiring and updating electronics, and will bring the corporation in line with new state laws. • One item of concern addressed by the board was the scheduling of spring break for the 2013-2014 school year. At issue was convenience for corporation families and school personnel and 17 vocational/technical students who travel to either Warsaw or Plymouth for

No layoffs at Triton Schools
Park Board renews annual contracts
By ruSty NixoN staff Writer
PLYMOUTH - The summer is set for several local agencies as the Plymouth Park Board renewed contracts for the coming summer months. The contract renewals were approved at the Park board meeting last week. The Boys and Girls Club of Marshall County will again be able to bring members to the Plymouth Municipal Pool on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the summer months from June 4 until Aug. 1. The Club will pay $300 to the city and provide a certificate of liability insurance and no less than four staff members trained in CPR will accompany any Club members to the pool. The Boys and Girls Club also requested the park to provide an area for their Green Machine Team to beautify. The members of the team receive service points for their activities and will work with Park Superintendent Mike Hite in meeting the park department standards. Encore Performing Arts will once again be providing entertainment at the Young Amphitheatre with Delta Theta Tau manning the concession stand for the shows. With the creation of the new River Park Square under the control of the Plymouth Park Department, the Plymouth Farmers Market asked for the renewal of their agreement to use the area from May through October. In return the Park Department will receive 10 percent of booth rental fees for the area. The Yellow River Festival will also once again enjoy the River Park Square Area for their festivities set for June 1 of this year.
Cori Holzwart from the Marshall County Tourism Visitor Bureau, takes notes at the Triton School Board meeting as part of her assignment from Leadership Marshall County. ”I have never been to one of these [meetings] before,” she said. “It was very quick, and went a lot more smoothly than I had anticipated. It was very professionally done.” classes. If the break coincides with Warsaw, then the five Plymouth students would receive no break since their classes continue there. In reverse, if the break aligns with Plymouth, then 12 Warsaw students lose their break. The Board voted 4-1 to schedule spring break the last full week in March, with several board members expressing their concern and regret for the decision. Burroughs said that this would only be a problem for next year. After that, area school corporations were planning to have a unified spring break schedule. • Elementary principal Jeremy Riffle reported that a textbook adoption meeting took place and that curriculum was selected for the coming year. Kindergarten roundup will take place 6 - 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 16. Through the Trojan Pride program, 3,125 tickets had been given since the beginning of the school year. Trojan Pride is a positive reinforcement program in which any staff member from teacher to custodian gives a student a ticket who is observed doing a good deed. High school assistant principal Bob Ross announced that seniors leave this Thursday for their trip to Washington, D.C. He also said that prom will be the following weekend, and that acuity testing will take place next week. In a work session taking place prior to the Board meeting, members reviewed the athletic handbook. One change involved the “three strike” punishment procedure for infractions. Current policies state that the three strikes carry over from junior high to high school. This policy was changed to state that all students have a clean slate when entering ninth grade. Another change included a form that all parents of student athletes must sign. The revised athletic handbook is scheduled for approval at the May Board meeting.
NIPSCO wants to raise rates to pay for project
CROWN POINT, Ind. (AP) — State regulators will take public comments this month at a public hearing on Northern Indiana Public Service Co.’s plan to recover the costs of improvements in pollution controls through increased electricity rates. The Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission will hold a public field hearing April 22 in Crown Point. NIPSCO is asking regulators to approve its plan to install new pollution control equipment at three of its power plants to meet federal environmental regulations. The equipment would reduce mercury and particulate matter emis sions. The utility also wants approval to recover the project’s costs through rates. NIPSCO estimates the project’s construction costs at about $59 million before financing costs. The project would add about $1.07 to the average monthly residential electric bill by 2017.

The Old Pennsylvania Train Depot:
ll across America, train depots have long been an integral part of a community. However, sadly, in today’s society where the railroads are less active many communities are left with abandoned depots and Plymouth is no exception. Many communities have chosen to attract businesses and citizens by cleaning up and making their community more inviting to investors. The revitalization of depots is a common theme in many communities and it’s time we do something with the Plymouth depot area. I am sure there are grants, historic preservation or stimulus money available somewhere. Culver and Bremen, for example, have refurbished their depots. I spoke with some movers and shakers in the community and they all agree that something should be done. The mayor said that he has been looking into the whole area for future development and that the depot restoration would be a great project. HISTORY OF PLYMOUTH DEPOT It all started when the Ohio and Pennsylvania Railroad was chartered in Ohio on Feb. 24, 1848 and in Pennsylvania on April 11, 1848. Then July 26, 1856 a Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne and Chicago Railroad was formed as a consolidation of the Fort Wayne and Chicago, Ohio and Indiana and Ohio and Pennsylvania Railroads. Extensions opened west to Plymouth on Nov. 10, 1858. As near as we can tell the wooden depot, which was situated on West LaPorte Street, was built during the 1860s. The first Pennsylvania RR depot was made of wood. There was a covered porch, water tower, and covered waiting area to the left of the tracks. I couldn’t find any information as to when it was actually built, but in 1914 it was razed and was replaced by the brick “Union Station” depot in 1915 which is still standing today. The depot was also used by the Vandalia and Pennsylvania travelers. Gone is the hustle and bustle of the train passengers as they make their way to the trains. I can remember my grandmother Boys telling me that every morning she would go to the depot and visit with the travelers and would frequently write news stories for the Pilot about where they were going or where they had been. Back then traveling was news. There was a lot of passenger and freight traffic on the west and eastbound lines. As a kid I can remember lying in bed at night and hearing the steam locomotives chug, chugging along and the sound of the steam whistle and rhythmic clack clacking of the rail cars as they passed through Plymouth. Those sounds are now gone forever. I can also remember that the interior of the depot was very attractive with beautiful woodwork and terrazzo floors. THE UNION LUNCH ROOM The Union Lunch Room, which was situated across LaPorte Street from the Pennsylvania Union Station, was the place for passengers to get a great and quick meal. In 1917 Mr. T.F. Houghton, owner and operator of the Union Lunch Room, recognized a triangular piece of ground at the junction of the railroads as an ideal place for an eating house. So he bought the ground and erected a two story building suited for dining. His motto was: give the customers a good meal at a decent price. Meals were 40 cents and that included coffee. As business grew Mr. Houghton added a larger dining room to the east. This building still stands at its original site on West LaPorte Street today. Currently, there isn’t any passenger service for the public anymore — just a few freight trains that travel through Plymouth and there is only one track. Sadly, after 94 years, the depot is just sitting there — lonely and deteriorating. The railroad still owns it and is using it for storage. I am glad there are those in power that are aware of the conditions. I wish them well and hope things will get-a-movin’ FULL STEAM AHEAD!
It was the hub of the community

My View FroM the Pilot house
ABOVE: A lonely and deteriorating Plymouth depot, which was once a magnificent structure and busy place, awaits its future. Hopefully it can be restored and put back in action — serving people again. BELOW: Broken concrete curbs and buckled brick walkways are what now remain of the once busy passenger and freight platforms.
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND AND MAY GOD BLESS POP QUIZ: What happened in history on this day April 12, 1861? If you are lucky enough to guess this one, you just might be eligible to win a hail-sized golf ball. Answer to last week’s POP QUIZ. The question was: OK, folks it is now April so we will be concentrating on “what happened in April” stuff. This week’s question is: What does the word April mean? ANSWER: Peace and love. April came from the Latin word Aprills, who was the equivalent to Venus the goddess of love. H m m m m boy if you got this one you just might be eligible to get an “April Shower” or a shower in April or um, your first shower in the spring. Well, that’s it for now ... so until next week ... this is my view from the Pilot House. Mike Boys is a lifelong Marshall County resident, former newspaper owner and former public officeholder. The dictionary defines a Pilot House as “an enclosed area on the bridge of a ship, from which the vessel is guided.” His views, opinions and news appear Fridays on the Pilot News Opinion page.

NASHVILLE — For the life of me, I don’t see how expanded background checks for gun purchases is an assault on the 2nd Amendment. Yet, that is the phrase we hear over and over and over again from the Indiana congressional delegation. What is really happening as President Obama pushes By for his gun legB riaN Howey islation and it courses through the House and Senate is this: Fear, not from the barrel of a gun, but fear of the more than $500,000 the National Rifle Association poured into the U.S. Senate race against Dick Lugar last year. But in the wake of the Newtown massacre and the ObamaBiden gun initiatives, conservative Republican members of Congress from Indiana are about to hyperventilate about protecting our 2nd Amendment rights. Almost every proposal in response to Newtown was viewed through that prism. Every statement from each of them is couched in “protection of our 2nd Amendment rights.” We’ve seen members like U.S. Rep. Marlin Stutzman somersault in and around this issue, at one point publicly urging gun manufacturer Beretta to locate a plant in Indiana. I mean, Marlin shore do love his guns! There’s another side to this story and it has been enunciated by Sen. Joe Donnelly, who since January has used the phrase “with gun rights come responsibility.” That phrase has been picked up by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s TV ad campaign aimed at both Donnelly and Sen. Dan Coats. Coats released a statement after a procedural maneuver on Thursday. “I believe it is both the duty of our government and society to work together to protect children and keep firearms out of the hands of criminals and those with mental illness issues who could cause harm to others. I welcome an open and fair debate on sensible ways to do that without punishing law-abiding citizens for exercising their Second Amendment rights. The Reid-Schumer bill goes too far and expands the government’s power to regulate, monitor and control the American people’s constitutional right to bear arms.” Earlier in the week, Coats signed on to a letter by U.S. Sen. Rand Paul that stated they “intend to oppose any legislation that would infringe on the American people’s constitutional right to bear arms, or their ability to exercise this right without being subjected to government surveillance.” The bill poised to advance in the Senate came with a deal forged by Sens. Joe Manchin from West Virginia and Pat Toomey, the Republican from Pennsylvania. “The events in Newtown changed us all,” said Manchin, a Democrat from a gun-lovin’ state. “Nobody here in good conscience could sit by and not try to prevent a day like what happened in Newtown from ever happening again.” Toomey, who once led the conservative Club For Growth, added, “I don’t consider criminal background checks to be gun control. I think it’s just common sense.” “Common ground rests on a simple premise,” Toomey continued. “And that is that criminals and the mentally ill shouldn’t have guns. I don’t know anyone who disagrees with that premise.” This legislation adds a modicum of security, but it wouldn’t have prevented Adam Lanza’s Newtown tragedy, or that of Columbine High School or some of the other infamous massacres. In the Indiana General Assembly, the reaction has been a bill that requires every school to have armed personnel. This is a knee-jerk “don’t just stand there, do something” legislation that could provide an array of unintended consequences. The very notion of a teacher, a janitor, or a poorly paid security guard responding to a Lanza-like scene — a hallway gun battle as students cower in classrooms — is a nightmare waiting to happen. A better response would be to study the growing list of school shootings and use trained, local police to appear with some regularity. What if we learned that most school shootings occurred around 8 or 9:30 in the morning, or during lunch break? A more reasonable response might be for the city police or local sheriff to cruise through the school parking lot or hallways on a regular basis, if nothing else than to plant the notion that an impediment to a twisted fantasy exists. Or how about cops doing end-of-shift paperwork and roll call in a small office at the local school? That would be a better use of resources than that speed trap over by the Dairy Queen. Greenwood police were placing old squad cars in bank parking lots as a relatively cost-effective deterrent to bank robberies. Imagine that: An empty cop car prevents pulp fiction. Memo to our lawmakers: We need common sense, statistical analysis, metrics and some innovation. The hysteria, political posturing and propaganda are an affront to the parents of the Newtown kids and teachers now resting in Connecticut graves. I suspect if legislators had the chance to talk with one of the Newtown parents and look deep into their eyes, they might come to a similar conclusion.
Guns and common sense the howey Political

Weather continues to play havoc with area events; a look at some reschedulings
Rain, rain, go away. Persistent precipitation and cold weather have forced cancellations and postponements to area athletic events throughout the week, and the wet conditions continued to play havoc with area schedules Thursday night. While most rain-outs have yet to be rescheduled, here’s a look at a few events that have, weather permitting. • The three-way track meet between Bremen, John Glenn and LaVille at LaVille scheduled for Thursday night has been postponed to Monday. • Bremen’s softball game at Mishawaka, originally ly slated for Wednesday, has been rescheduled for tonight. The Pilgrims found themselves with an opening on their dance card when their game with South Bend Washington, planned to take place at Coveleski Stadium tonight, was cancelled. Plymouth will now play Washington at Bill Nixon Field Saturday at 4 p.m. • The Bremen-Plymouth girls tennis match at DeSantis Courts in Bremen has been pushed back from Thursday night to tonight. • Thursday’s Northern State Conference girls tennis match-up between Triton and John Glenn has been postponed to April 23.
For those events that have been rescheduled for tonight, the caveat is that there’s a 30 percent chance of rain according to The Weather Channel’s AccuWeather forecast, which means there is a possibility of further postponements/ cancellations.
AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Guan Tianlang put off his homework for a few hours, grabbed the snack his mom had made and went out to play with his friends. His playground was Augusta National and the world had tuned in to watch the 14-year-old from China, the youngest player ever to tee it up at the Masters and youngest at any major in 148 years. That’s some play date. “I felt a little bit nervous on the first tee,” Guan said. “But I hit a great tee shot and, after that, everything feels comfortable. ... I just had fun today. Pretty much fun.” Played great, too. Guan made a 15-footer from off the fringe to birdie his final hole Thursday, finishing with a 1-over 73. As the ball rolled into the cup, the crowd around 18 gave the teenager a standing ovation, with two-time Masters champion Ben Crenshaw leading the cheers for his young playing partner. Play like this again Friday, and he’s got a shot at making the cut. “I’m telling you, he played like a veteran today,” Crenshaw said. “Played a beautiful round of golf. He stays well within himself. He’s very confident and, obviously, beautiful hands. His thought process never got rushed. Very patient. Very, very, very impressive.” He wasn’t the only one who was impressed. The same “wow” murmurs could be heard on every hole, as fans — young and old — marveled at the eighth grader who was holding his own with the greatest golfers in the world. “That’s the 14-year-old.” “Fourteen? You’re joking!” “Fourteen? That’s amazing.” “It’s amazing. Absolutely amazing,” said Lisa Nichols, whose folding chair, from the 1998 Masters, was older than Guan. And more than a little bit

CHICAGO (AP) — Suddenly, Chicago is the place where long winning streaks go to die. This time, it was Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks going down. Late last month, it was LeBron James and the Miami Heat. Nate Robinson scored a season-high 35 points and Chicago rallied for a 118-111 overtime victory to stop New York’s 13-game run. Anthony missed a potential winner at the end of regulation, and Robinson took over down the stretch, scoring eight points in overtime to lift the Bulls to another streak-breaking win on a charged night that had the feel of a postseason game. “Crazy. Playoff atmosphere, to tell you the truth, against a playoff team,” Chicago’s Jimmy Butler said. “I feel like it’s helping us.” Butler finished with 22 points, Luol Deng scored 16, and the Bulls busted a long run for the second time in about a two-week span, after ending the Heat’s 27-game streak — the

Frozen, cont. from Page A6
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Two former Culver Military Academy hockey teammates faced off in the semifinals of the NCAA Frozen Four at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh Thursday. Cory Hibbeler, of No. 1-ranked Quinnipiac University, and Nic Dowd, of St. Cloud State University, played in the second game of the national semifinals with Hibbeler and Quinnipiac rolling to the championship with a 4-1 victory that set up an all-Connecticut showdown with rival Yale for the championship on Saturday. The championship game takes place at 7 p.m. and will be broadcast nationally on ESPN. Jordan Samuels-Thomas had a goal and an assist for the top-seeded Bobcats while Ben Arnt, Kellen Jones and Jeremy Langlois also scored for Quinnipiac (30-7-5), who scored three times in the first 12 minutes to take control. Goaltender Eric Hartzell stopped 32 shots for Quinnipiac, easily outshining fellow finalist Drew LeBlanc of St. Cloud State. LeBlanc was held scoreless as the Huskies (25-16-1) struggled to keep up with the more experienced Bobcats. Joey Benik scored his tournament-leading fifth goal for St. Cloud State but it wasn’t nearly enough. Ryan Faragher made 24 saves for the Huskies but was overwhelmed in the first period as Quinnipiac staked the best goaltender in the country to a massive lead. The start of the game was pushed by nearly an hour after Yale needed overtime to edge UMass Lowell 3-2. Pecknold had prepared his players for the delay and reminded them to stay sharp. The buzz from Yale’s victory barely died down when the Bobcats pounced on the Huskies. Samuels-Thomas gave Quinnipiac the lead 1:49 into the game, working behind the net, then beating Faragher on a wraparound. The Bobcats needed just over three minutes to double the lead. Samuels-Thomas again did most of the work, controlling the puck in the corner then darting behind the St. Cloud State goal. This time, when he tried to stuff it by Faragher, the puck skittered loose. No biggie, the puck rolled right to Arnt’s stick and the senior had little trouble flipping it over Faragher’s right shoulder for his eighth goal of the season. Langlois pushed the lead to 3-0 barely halfway through the period, giving Hartzell all the cushion he would need. St. Cloud managed to regain its footing after falling into such an early hole and pulled to within 3-1 6:25 into the second period. Hartzell made an uncharacteristic mistake, committing early to a shot from Kevin Gravel and found himself woefully out of position as the puck found its way to Benik’s stick at the doorstep. Benik had so much time to score he was able to collect himself before depositing it into the net for his eighth goal of the season. Quinnipiac’s lapse was only momentary. The Bobcats came in 25-0-1 when scoring at least three goals, and though St. Cloud State recovered a bit after the early collapse, it wasn’t nearly enough to derail Quinnipiac’s run. The Bobcats restored the three-goal lead on a stellar effort by Jones, who took a pass off the boards and raced into the zone. He turned left and headed for the net, fighting off St. Cloud State’s Andrew Prochno and flipping the puck by Faragher’s stick. The loss marked an end to a remarkable season for the Huskies, who started the year as an afterthought before capturing the Western Collegiate Hockey Association regular-season title for the first time since joining the league in 1990. Victories over Notre Dame and Miami propelled St. Cloud State into its first Frozen Four appearance, but Quinnipiac — and it’s talented roster of experienced players — was simply too

much. The Bobcats, sensing a trip to the final in their grasp, clamped down the rest of the way to set up a showdown with the Bulldogs. Quinnipiac dominated all three meetings with Yale this season, outscoring the Bulldogs 13-3 on its way to the ECAC regular-season title. The matchup between the Bobcats and the Bulldogs assures the ECAC — which for years has struggled in the shadow of the formidable Hockey East — its first national title since Harvard won it in 1989. Dowd and Hibbeler are 2008 graduates. Hibbeler, a junior defenseman for the Bobcats, has played in 33 games. He has six goals and five assists for a total of 11 points. Quinnipiac advanced to the Frozen Four with a 4-3 win over Canisius in the East Regional semifinal and a 5-1 regional championship victory over Union. Dowd, a junior forward for the Huskies, finished up the season with 14 goals and 24 assists in 41 games. He ended up second on the team in scoring with 38 points. The Huskies advanced with a 5-1 Midwest Regional semifinal win over Notre Dame (and CMA alum David Gerths ’09) and won the championship game over Miami (Ohio), 4-1.
Plymouth Aquatics Club clinics Bulls, cont. from Page A6 PLYMOUTH — The Plymouth Aquatics Club will be hosting a pair of Stroke & Turn and Learn to Swim clinics at the Culver Academies April 15-18 and 22-25 from 6 to 7 p.m. Registration will take place April 9 and 11 in the Guild Story Room at the Plymouth Public Library from 6 to 7:30 p.m. and on the days of the clinics from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Cost is $30 for the first swimmer and $25 for each additional swimmer from the same family.

They put the Knicks’ longest streak in nearly two decades to rest with a huge surge in the second half, offsetting Anthony’s 36 points. “For us, we’re not focused on stopping streaks,” Robinson said. “We’re just trying to get better as a team going into the playoffs.” Robinson appears to be in gear. He’s scored 18 or more in four straight games, and he put the Bulls over the top against his former team after two ugly losses to Detroit and Toronto. In the end, all the Knicks could do was shrug it off. “It would have been nice if Melo knocks down that shot,” Woodson said. “We could have walked out of here with a win. It didn’t happen.” Robinson started overtime with a three-point play to give Chicago a 108-105 lead, and after Anthony scored, the Bulls started to pull away. Deng nailed a 3-pointer, and Robinson hit a free throw after J.R. Smith got called for a technical foul with 2:09 remaining for arguing a non-call against Deng on a missed drive. The Bulls guard then drove for a layup to make it 114-107, and Chicago hung on from there. Chicago trailed by as much as 17 points and was down 79-64 in the third quarter before going on a big run to get back into it. The Bulls were even up by nine — 99-90 — after a 3 by Robinson and layup by Butler with 5:42 remaining, but they did not get another basket in regulation. The Knicks finally tied it at 105 with 14.5 seconds left when a driving Anthony got fouled by Butler and hit both free throws. Deng then missed an offbalance fadeaway bank shot with 1.5 seconds left in regulation. New York’s Raymond Felton grabbed the rebound, and after a 20-second timeout, Anthony’s long jumper hit the rim and it went into overtime. The loss ended the Knicks’ longest win streak since a 15-game run from March 1 to April 2, 1994, and left them two games ahead of Indiana for the second seed in the Eastern Conference with four games remaining. New York plays the Pacers on Sunday. “The crazy thing is they’re only getting better,” Chicago’s Carlos Boozer said. “The more talent they put around (Anthony), the better his team is. This year, they went from being kind of a mediocre team in the East the last few years to ... top in the East for a very long time.” Anthony, trying to become the first Knicks player since Bernard King in 1984-85 to win a scoring title, was off target. He hit just 13 of 34 shots after averaging 40.6 points in the previous five games. Smith scored 28 points and Felton added 19, but the Bulls hung on down the stretch in OT to complete the four-game sweep. “They can have it,”
Sprig Senior League
Plymouth Rock Senior League
BREMEN — The Sprig O’Mint MOnday Seniors League will begin play May 6 with an 18-hole event beginning with an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start. Men over 60 are encouraged to sign up individually as the league draws for teams each week. Contact Frank Lakner at 574-546-2132 or Norm Earlywine at 574-248-0492 to sign up or with questions.
PLYMOUTH — Plymouth Rock Golf Course welcomes all senior golfers to play in their senior league starting Tuesday, April 16 at 9 a.m. A brief meeting will precede the round of golf. If you are unable to attend call 574-936-4405.
Anthony said. “They can have it. They can have it. They can have the regularseason wins. They did a great job at beating us four times. We’re not worrying about them at this point.” The win left fifth-place Chicago a half-game ahead of Atlanta in the East, and they can thank Robinson for that. He beat his previous season high by a point. Deng finished with 16 points after sitting out the previous two games with a hip injury. Butler came up big after scoring a career-high 28 in Tuesday’s loss to Toronto. He ignited the crowd with back-to-back breakaway dunks in the third that got the turnaround started and helped defend Anthony. “You want to go up against the best,” Butler said. “You don’t back down from things like this. You want to accept those challenges. You don’t back down from things like that. He’s a great player.”
Guan, cont. from Page A6
But he rarely strayed from the fairway, and his short game more than makes up for what he lacks in length. He got his first birdie on No. 3, chipping to about 12 feet past the hole and rolling it in. After his drive on the long par-4 No. 5 sailed far right, he recovered with a nice shot to just below the green, then chipped within 3 feet. And though he didn’t have the distance to reach the green on the par-5 15 in two, he got close enough to give himself a makeable birdie putt. “(Adam Scott) and I were talking about it, joking a little bit, if we would have been here at 14 years old, we would have been shaking,” said Sergio Garcia, who knows a little bit about being a phenom. “It happened to me at 16 when I played the British Open and I thought I was going to miss it on that first tee shot, so I can’t imagine how he must have felt.” If Guan was nervous, he never let it show. Didn’t show any emotions, really. There were occasional smiles, a fist pump when he rolled a putt in for a birdie, a polite touch of his cap to acknowledge the cheers of the crowd. But the baby-faced teenager never looked flustered, and there was never a hint of the petulance. “People were very nice to me,” he said. “And I feel comfortable on the course.” If he ever did get overwhelmed, Guan knew his parents were only a few feet away. After having breakfast with their only child — potatoes, beef, rice, vegetables and stir-fried eggs — Hong Yu and Han Wen followed him for the entire round, joined by several family friends. But unlike the parents of some other young stars, they didn’t seem overbearing or caught up in their son’s results. After Guan’s second shot on the first hole, while everyone else followed the flight of the ball, Han Wen watched his son, breathing a sigh of relief when the youngster nodded in satisfaction. He clapped enthusiastically after every shot — his son’s and those of his playing partners. Asked if his son would turn professional soon, Han Wen answered with an emphatic no. “Not for a long time, maybe,” Han Wen said. “Amateurs have fun. Enjoy it.” But if Guan keeps playing well, surely there will be pressure on him to turn pro before he’s out of high school. Golf is only beginning to catch on in China, making it a huge untapped market for the tours, sponsors and television. Guan is the first Chinese player with real star potential, and don’t think golf’s marketing gurus aren’t already envisioning him as the Asian Tiger Woods. There was even a little something Tiger-esque about the reaction Guan got Thursday. The galleries buzzed when he walked by. Kids followed him from hole to hole, running ahead so they could stake out spots to watch him. “He’s going to come right by us!” 12-year-old D.J. Kellar exclaimed after Guan’s second shot on No. 2 landed on the right side of the fairway. Pretty heady stuff for someone who arrived at Augusta National with six textbooks stuffed in his bag. Guan still goes to public school back home — math, English and history are his favorite subjects — and he spends at least 90 minutes a day studying. But Guan is wise enough to know he’s not going to contend at the Masters. Not this year, at least. “But I think I can win in the future,” he said, flashing a smile.

Late-night snooze ‘n’ stroll
In one episode of “The Honeymooners” Ralph (Jackie Gleason) is trying to figure out how to stop Norton (Art Carney) from nightly sleepwalking; it makes for great 1950s TV humor. But today, we understand more about the affliction — and guess what? It’s really not a laughing matter. Sleepwalking is often a signal of deeper troubles, like depression and anxiety. In some cases, a late-night snooze ‘n’ stroll even ends violently. One study found that 58 percent of sleepwalkers lash out while in the trance, and 17 percent inflict enough harm that either their bed partner or
the sleepwalker ends up in the emergency room. Sleepwalking inflicts damage to the body during waking hours, too. That’s because it prevents you from going into REM (rapid eye movement) sleep, a state of heightened brain activity and muscle immobility that is essential for information processing, memory formation and tension regulation. REM deprivation triggers chronic fatigue, weight gain, and a wide range of health
issues, from headaches to heart disease. If you live with someone who sleepwalks, note the timing of late-night strolls. When you see a pattern, set your alarm 15 minutes BEFORE your bedmate’s expected exit and jostle him or her into a semi-awake state. This will change the sleep cycle and hopefully prevent sleepwalking. Stress-reduction techniques — including exercise (10,000 steps a day is a good goal), meditation and psychotherapy — also may help. And many people get good results from going to a sleep clinic (this is particularly important if you live alone). Happy trails and sweet dreams.
Chuckle of the day...
A bunch of internet weirdos voted the new Monopoly piece to be a cat. Well, there’s a surprise.
DEAR ABBY: I’m a 50-year-old man who is serving time for robbery in West Virginia. Every day I wake up acting as if I am in control and don’t have a care in the world. The truth is, I’m scared, lonely and feel totally helpless. All my life I have lived on the dark side of the street, taking for granted the values in life and the love so many people tried to give me. Two failed marriages and several relationships with good women are over because of my determinaBY JEANNE PHILLIPS tion to follow an unhealthy dream, not to mention all the friends I have lost as well. Now as I look around me, there’s no one there. No one to love and no one to love me. I never knew until now that chasing that dream would cost me everyone I ever loved. I know I have made bad choices in life. I deserve the time for the crime I committed. But am I also sentenced to a world of loneliness? Can I ever be loved again and be happy after all the wrong I have done? Is there someone out there who would be willing to give me a chance? Is it too late to start over? Abby, you have so many answers for so
Prisoner regretting his past has trouble seeing future
Dear Abby
many people, I am just hoping you have an answer for me. — SERVING TIME DEAR SERVING TIME: It is never too late to start over. With penitence comes redemption. If you are willing to journey down a different path, the relationships you form along the way will be rewarding, long-lasting and mutual. Because of your criminal record you may have to work harder to gain trust, but I promise you that if you’re willing to work at it, it can be done. ****** DEAR ABBY: My ex-husband, the father of our two children, was retired from the Air Force. He passed away 18 years ago. He had a full military funeral, with draped flag and all. His wife at the time was presented with the flag, which was proper. They had no children. When she passes on, would it be proper for her family to give the flag to his biological children? After all, they were with him — as was I — throughout his entire 22-year military career. When my daughter mentioned it to his wife, she got angry. — C. IN TEXAS DEAR C.: Your former husband’s wife was entitled to whatever property was left after his demise. The flag is hers to bestow — or not. I don’t know how your daughter’s request was phrased, but the woman may have been offended by the way the question was asked. I can’t think of any other reason she would become angry.

“Gangster Squad” (R) — Sean Penn plays Mickey Cohen, a maniacal villain with a fondness for executing his rivals in style. In 1949 Los Angeles, Cohen has enough corrupt cops and politicians in his pocket to keep his operation going strong. Josh Brolin and Ryan Gosling lead a team of daredevil policemen who fight back — not as cops, but as a heavily armed hit squad against crime. It’s got panache. Scenes of LA nightclubs and gambling dens seem to glisten with pulpy nostalgia. Emma Stone does a fine job as the sultry lady torn between her gangster beau and the irresistible charms of Ryan Gosling dressed as a slick detective. Don’t expect the classic noir-style complexity, “Gangster Squad” aims to be a hard-edged thriller in a nice suit. “The Impossible” (PG-13) — In the 2004 tsunami that ravaged Southeast Asia, one family is torn apart and put through a harrowing journey to reunite. Henry and Maria Bennet (Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts) are on vacation in Thailand with their three sons when a tidal wave smashes their resort and pulls the family in different directions. The aftermath is a tale of survival, and then heart-squeezing determination to find one another. Based on a true story, the film has a balanced approach to the action and emotion. The scenes with the tidal wave are grueling. The moral complexities and struggle for survival in the immediate aftermath will keep you engaged ... although perhaps a bit queasy. Overall, when the movie reaches out to pull heartstrings, it hits the right notes. “Promised Land” (R) — Steve Butler (Matt Damon) is a representative for a natural gas corporation. It’s his job to convince struggling farmers to sell their land for drilling purposes, making both the farmer
and the drillers rich. However, this kind of drilling can have devastating effects on the land. In one small town, Steve encounters resistance and faces a conflict of his own conscience. This is a movie with an obvious message, but it takes the time to explore different perspectives without vilifying the individuals involved. “Family Weekend” (R) — Emily (Olesya Rulin) is a teenage girl who is serious about her competitive jump-rope regionals. Her wealthy, quirky parents are shamelessly disinterested in her life. To fix her family, Emily ties up her parents and teaches them lessons about appropriate conversation and how to show minimal support and attention for their children. It’s like an extended sitcom episode. The R-rating might make you think it’s a dark film, but it’s very tame. It tries to bring in some emotional resolution, but nobody could possibly still care about it that far into the film. “Maverick: The Complete Second Season” “Touched By an Angel: The Seventh Season” “Iron Man: Armored Adventures, Complete Season 2” “The Wiggles: Surfer Jeff” (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

BY HELOISE SolutionS for the SleepleSS Dear Heloise: I am one of the millions who find it hard to go BACK TOSLEEP once I am awakened at night. One easy solution is to change the night-light bulb to green or blue. The colored bulbs provide enough light, but do not seem to glare like the white ones do. Another solution to the fluorescent-green numerals on my alarm clock that are too bright is to plop a tissue box in front of the clock. It is easy to lift up if I need to see the time, but the bright numerals don’t wake me up when I roll over at night! Cheap and simple solutions to a problem that many of us deal with. -- Sleepless in New Jersey I’m with you! With only two to three electronic items in a dark bedroom, it can look like the flight deck of a 747! -- Heloise SEND A GREAT HINT TO: Heloise P.O. Box 795000 San Antonio, TX 78279-5000 Fax: 1-210-HELOISE Email: Heloise(at) BuCKlinG up preGnAnt Dear Readers: If you are pregnant or know someone who is, what’s the best and safest way to wear a seat belt? When in the car, buckling up is very important. Here are recommendations from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on buckling up when pregnant: * Put the seat as far back as it can go while still being able to reach the pedals. * Leave at least 10 inches between your chest
hintS froM heloiSe
and the steering wheel. * Place the lap belt below your belly so that it fits tightly across your hips. * The shoulder belt should fit across your chest between your breasts. * Leave air bags turned on. * Sit in the back seat, when possible, if you are pregnant. The NHTSA also recommends installing the car seat at least three weeks before your due date. That way, you have a chance to get it inspected and aren’t rushing when the baby comes. -- Heloise trAVel hint Dear Heloise: I often have friends come to visit because I live close to a beach. Someone always forgets something: a toothbrush, shampoo, toothpaste, lotion, sunscreen, etc. Trying to be a good hostess, I stocked up on a whole bunch of travelsize items and saved the ones from hotels. I used a cute wicker basket, organized all the goodies neatly and placed it on the sink of the guest bathroom. Now when someone forgets something, he or she just grabs what is needed. When my guest leaves, I just restock it. -- A Reader, via email What a cute idea for your out-of-town guests! Readers, do you have a great travel hint that you would love to share? Let me know! -- Heloise BlouSe ButtonS Dear Heloise: Ever notice how the space between the buttons on your blouse is not closed enough to hide the sights, especially if you are a full-busted woman? I attached a small, clear snap between the first and second and the second and third buttons on my blouse. This prevents a gap that just won’t stay closed, and it is not visible at all. -- Elaine in West Virginia No “gaposis”! -- Heloise

Trinity United Methodist Church’s building is located at 425 South Michigan Street in Plymouth, Indiana, but you can see us at work around Plymouth, in Marshall County, and all over the world. In our building, we hold worship services every Sunday 8:30 a.m. (Traditional Service) and 10:30 a.m. (Blended Contemporary). Wednesday evenings beginning at 5:00 p.m. we host Salt n’ Light, which offers the choice of participation in a family meal, Kids’ Club, adult small groups, choirs, and/or various other activities. Every 1st Friday night, we provide very lowcost childcare for young parents wanting some child-free time! And 2nd Friday nights we open up our building to anyone who wants to come and participate in the arts. Music, poetry, fine arts are encouraged and provided space to present. In July we host a Vacation Bible School for the community that runs in the evenings July 14th - July 18th, and we invite all children to attend. However, God’s love encourages us to go outside our building and make a difference in the world as well. Through donations and volunteer service we are supporting Heminger House, Bread of Life Food Pantry, and Care and Share. We host a youth support group for troubled teens, and provide backpacks full of school supplies as school begins. We send contributions and volunteers to other nations in Africa and Central America. Along with other local United Methodists, Trinity provides service to the community through the United Methodist Change the World Day. May 18th, 2013 will be a day of service projects throughout the communities in which we live. This Fall we hope to begin a Mentoring program to help address issues of education and poverty in our community. All these events speak to our beliefs. Trinity is living as passionate followers of Jesus to change the world. We love God, and we understand that love through the redemptive work of Jesus Christ. That love also leads us out into the world to share that love. Trinity United Methodist Church has been a congregation on the move in Plymouth since 1832. Today we are continuing to move forward to meet the community’s and the world’s needs in the 21st century. All are welcome to see what it is like to be a part of the Trinity family.

Founders Day / Arbor Day Celebration The Mayor’s Youth Council will be leading a Founders Day / Arbor Day Celebration on Saturday April 27, BOTTLING CO., INC. 2013 at 10:00 AM. The event will be held at Founders Park and will commemorate Plymouth’s 140th Anniversary 1701 PIDCO DRIVE and, hopefully, it can be an annual event leading up to our Sesquicentennial year in 2023. The council will also be planting a Tulip Tree in Founders Park donated by NISPSCO. Founders Park is PLYMOUTH, IN on Polk Street north of East Jefferson behind Mila’s and The Coffee Lodge. New street signs marking all three of Plymouth’s founders (James Blair, John Sering and William Polk) will be reposted as well. The Youth Council is excited about their project and look forward to a great response from our community!
