Tyner; Tippecanoe offices under review

July 28, 2011

Walker, a trucker who resides in Kentucky, said he passes through the area about once a week. He likes the new machine, but is not too sure about the 125 flavors.
“I’ll stick to Coke,” said Walker, smiling.

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.
