Changing oil for kids

July 26, 2011

PLYMOUTH — Car a little dusty from the heat?
Your 3,000 mile oil change was due 4,000 miles ago? Oliver Ford in Plymouth is there to help you while they help others.
Oliver is currently offering free oil changes and car washes at the dealership on Jefferson Street in Plymouth until Aug. 1 — unless you own a diesel vehicle. The only request in return is for you to help area kids get ready to go back to school.

Corn detassling popular summer job for students

July 25, 2011

PLYMOUTH — The cornfield looked empty, just a mass of stalks bending under the sun’s heat.
A few minutes later, however, a large red tractor became visible over the tops of the corn. Groups of kids, all wearing neon orange hats to shield their face from the sun, jumped off the long arms attached to the tractor, brushing cornstalk remnants off their hands. They were in the middle of a long morning of detassling corn — and it was time for a break.
“(The job) has it’s ups and downs,” said Derrick Lee, one of the detasslers, Thursday. “Especially on days like today. It’s hot!”

July 24, 2011

When you hear the name Mozart, you might associate it with words such as “child prodigy,” “classical music,” or “talented composer.”

But for 21 Culver Academies students, the name Mozart will yield the sights and sounds of Salzburg, Austria – home of the Mozart International Choral Festival.
