Gun incident is teaching moment for parents, students, says CCMS principal

October 5, 2011

If there’s a real lesson in the confusion following an incident a week ago Monday at the Culver Community Middle School, it’s not so much in how to deal with students bringing a gun to school -- which didn’t, in fact, happen -- as it is an opportunity for parents and students alike to become better and more informed “digital citizens.”

New destination for juvenile offenders in '12

October 5, 2011

PLYMOUTH — Juvenile offenders in Marshall County may have farther to go before they reach their destination in 2012, according to county attorney Jim Clevenger’s report to the county commissioners Monday.
Clevenger suggested that the commissioners consider holding juveniles in the detention center in Delaware county rather than the current location in Porter County. The center in Delaware County has a cheaper per night rate, and they also offer additional resources in the way of transportation and psychiatric services.

Plymouth Schools set redistricting meeting dates

October 3, 2011

PLYMOUTH — Just five years ago the Plymouth School District was so out of balance that Washington Elementary did not have a Title I teacher or aides. As the 2011-12 school years starts there are concerns with an out of balance situation, but this time it’s Webster Elementary and Menominee Elementary that are getting dangerously close to losing Title I services. Because of this, Superintendent Daniel Tyree feels that it’s important to take a close look at the shifts in population within the school district and make possible adjustments through re-districting for the 2012-13 school year.

Local firefighter fearlessly fights cancer foe

September 29, 2011

BASS LAKE - As a volunteer firefighter for 26 years for the Bass Lake Fire Department, Phil Banasiak is used to saving people’s lives. Fighting for his own life, on the other hand, is not something he is familiar with. On Saturday, Sept. 10, Banasiak felt fine; he worked all day, went out to dinner, came home, and fell asleep on the couch — but when he woke up Sunday morning, he was stunned to discover he was paralyzed from the waist down.
“It’s a kind of shock. How many people do you know that went to sleep on Saturday and woke up and couldn’t walk on Sunday?” Banasiak said.

Salons team up to give cancer-fighting woman a 'gorgeous' day

September 29, 2011

It wasn’t until Shari Kirkland and her husband pulled up in front of Michelle’s Headquarters on Culver’s Main Street earlier this month that Shari began to guess at what was in store.
That’s because a van with the “Hello Gorgeous” moniker was parked nearby, and Kirkland had seen a television news report on the organization recently.
“I had a blast,” she says of what followed, “and I wish more (hairdressers) would get involved. I’ve never had a pedicure or manicure before, and nobody’s washed my hair since I was a little kid! So it was good -- everybody was so friendly.”
