Plymouth named in major lawsuit

March 30, 2012

PLYMOUTH — Plymouth is one of about 50 municipalities recently named in a major lawsuit, according to City Attorney Sean Surrisi. Kevin D. Miller was searched by a Plymouth Police Department K9 unit in 2009 following a traffic stop by the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department. Miller has since claimed that Plymouth’s K9 — and all other dogs trained at Vohne-Liche Kennels in Peru — are unreliable. Miller claims that the dog falsely detected drugs in his vehicle and that the search was traumatizing to himself and his wife. Miller was not arrested or charged.

Science teacher's inventions help students learn in hands-on way

March 29, 2012

BREMEN — When George Cox, of Bremen, was teaching science to junior and senior high school students, he often felt frustrated that he couldn’t find ways to illustrate concepts to his students. To teach Newton’s first and second laws of motion, Cox used to drop an eight pound shot put and a softball out of an upstairs window at Bremen High School. The idea was to prove that the objects would hit the ground at the same time, even though they were different weights.
“I had to stop doing that, because I was creating (marks) in the lawn,” said Cox. “The school custodian made me stop.”

March 26, 2012
