County to reinstate K-9 for Sheriff's Dept.

May 22, 2012

PLYMOUTH — Marshall County Sheriff Tom Chamberlin told county commissioners Monday that he is looking into reinstating a K-9 unit for the Sheriff’s Department.
“We’ve had an absence of a dog since 2010 when our former dog retired,” said Chamberlin.
He added that job duties for the officer paired with a dog had been posted at the Sheriff’s Department, and he had three candidates as of Friday.
“We are not hiring anybody, I want to make that clear,” said Chamberlin. “This is going to be a lateral move within the department.”

Papa’s to celebrate anniversary as Culver's, county's longest-running restaurant

May 19, 2012

Some might think it odd that Culver's longest-running restaurant (and possibly the longest-running in Marshall County) is celebrating its 36th anniversary this summer -- after all, why not 35, last year? Or wait until 40?

But Brian McCormack, co-founder and owner of Papa's in Culver thinks making the restaurant’s 36th a big bash fits the "unconventional" identity of the longtime local fa­vorite, which opened its doors this week (May 16) in 1976.

"We did an after-prom pizza party," he says of the res­taurant's very first day. "That was our first run at it."

Council vice president Ginny Munroe, presiding in the stead of president Sally Ricciardi, who Munroe earlier announced was resting at home after a hospital stint, said the council offered David Schoeff the position of Culver town manager, a position he has formally accepted since that meeting took place.
