Triton grad recognized for noteworthy achievment

January 9, 2012

BOURBON — Zak Hoffer, of Bourbon, is a fairly average 21-year-old. A fan of classic rock music, he enjoys playing his guitar, spending time with his family, and bowling. But what's not so average is Zak's past. When Zak was 10 years old, he was hit by a car while out riding his bike, landing him in the hospital for three months and causing permanent brain injuries.
"We didn't think that he would have a future," said Zak's mother, Patty Hoffer-Steele. "When we left the hospital the psychologist told us he would never have a normal conversation again."

National Guard troops headed to Afghanistan get ceremonious send-off

January 5, 2012

PLYMOUTH — It was difficult to find a dry eye in the packed gymnasium of the Plymouth National Guard Armory Wednesday afternoon, as local soldiers from Plymouth and New Albany prepared for their departure to Afghanistan.
The men and women stood with their loved ones, unified by a common goal but not quite willing to leave their families’ sides just yet.
It was a “bittersweet moment” as State Representative Nancy Dembowski said, addressing the crowd gathered. She bowed out of a mandatory meeting of the Indiana House of Representatives to be at the ceremony in Plymouth Wednesday.

Winter carnival slated to accompany national-level ice fishing tourney here

January 5, 2012

While many have enjoyed this unseasonably warm -- and relatively snowless -- winter, some area groups will be forgiven if their fingers are crossed for temperatures to drop throughout the month of January.

That's because Culver and Lake Maxinkuckee will play host to a national-scale ice fishing tournament the weekend of Jan. 27 through 29, expected to bring more than 100 teams, and plenty of winter fun for those not interested in ice fishing as well, including a kids' snowman building contest and ice skating camp.
