Health department postpones changes

July 5, 2011

PLYMOUTH — For several months now, residents of Marshall County have been aware that beginning July 1, insured individuals (including children) will no longer be vaccinated by their local health department. This guideline was to bring local health departments into compliance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) requirements. On June 30, the day before the change was to go into effect, the Marshall County Health Department received notification that the changes would be postponed until January 2012.

Root beer stand, a Culver legend, turns 55

July 2, 2011

There are few entities so quintisentially "Culver" -- and so cherished by generations -- as that small root beer stand near the beach, known since 2003 as The Original Root Beer Stand.
This summer marks the 55th anniversary of the business operating in Culver, at 824 Lake Shore Drive. Prior to that, then-owner Donald "Casey" Jones had operated it in Plymouth, but moved the building, foundation, and equipment by truck from Plymouth to Culver! At the time, it was an A&W root beer stand, as it would stay for some time.

It's starting to look a lot like fair time

July 1, 2011

ARGOS — As July rolls in, there is one thing you can count on in Indiana (besides more rain) — county fairs.
Marshall County is no different, offering fair goers an opportunity to overeat, attend livestock shows, view all of Marshall County 4-H members’ spectacular projects, and much more. Though the fair schedules are available for pick-up in the Extension Office, around Marshall County businesses, and online at www.ag.purdue.edu/counties/marshall, we thought we would give you a sneak peak on the fun that will be happening July 10 to 16 at the 4-H Fairgrounds in Argos.

New maps increase flood plain area

July 1, 2011

PLYMOUTH — New flood plain maps for Plymouth are scheduled to go into effect November 16, according to Keith Hammond, building commissioner, at the city council meeting Monday.

Yacht Club exits Cove, combines with 115 Grill

June 30, 2011

While many in Culver may have noticed extensive remodeling to the façade of the new 115 Grill on east Jefferson Street downtown, there’s been a not-so-noticeable change in the business and its sister restaurant, the nearby Yacht Club, which recently opened on the second floor of the Culver Cove resort.
According to John Zehner, developer of both projects over the past several months, the Yacht Club will depart from the Cove and join its operation with 115 Grill (which is located, appropriately enough, at 115 East Jefferson Street), with both entities combining under the Yacht Club banner.

June 29, 2011

BOURBON — On the morning of April 25, 2011, a man who identified himself as Mike Johnson walked into First Step daycare in Bourbon and began questioning director Becky Wampler, who was taking care of her invalid father, about the facility.
The man said that he had a 2-year-old daughter and he was looking for a daycare for her. Wampler said that although he claimed to have a 2-year-old and a 4-year-old, he appeared to be too old to have children that age. After looking into all the rooms, the man sat down on the couch.
