'Turtle Lady' comes out of her shell

January 30, 2012

PLYMOUTH — What do a tired waitress, a lonely patient receiving their umpteenth IV stick and a shy third-grader have in common?
Turtles.
If you live in Marshall County you may have been touched by the Turtle Lady – or maybe you’ve seen these palm-sized creatures around town at checkouts, on clerks’ aprons at the fabric store or in the possession of someone wearing a smile.
Sandy Skuderna, 63, started making and giving away her turtles in 2009. Since then, more than 4,000 have passed through her hands — some going as far as the Horn of Africa with her daughter, who is in the U.S. Navy.

Party affiliation at issue in park board appointment

January 26, 2012

Debate ensued Jan. 17 concerning the newly-reorganized Culver town council’s appointment to the Culver parks and recreation board, to which the council ultimately re-appointed current board member Patty Stallings, rather than applicant Rhonda Reinhold.

With Ed Pinder replacing Ginny Munroe as council president, and newest member Bill Githens on hand for his first meeting, members discussed the status of Stallings, a Republican who agreed to change party affiliation to fill a vacancy on the politically balanced board. Reinhold is a lifelong Democrat.

'Spamalot' musical based on Monty Python comes to Wabash

January 26, 2012

WABASH — Thank God we have a quest, and that quest will include laughter as the award winning Broadway musical “Spamalot” comes to the Wabash Honeywell Center’s Ford Theater Saturday, Feb. 4 at 7:30 p.m.
The show borrows liberally and unashamedly from the classic film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” and features characters and sketches from the internationally acclaimed comedy team’s most famous film. With a book and lyrics by Monty Python’s Eric Idle and music by John Du Prez the musical tells the tale of King Arthur and his — rather offbeat — quest for the Holy Grail.
