Marengo Edged Out 62-56 In Overtime Sectional Loss 

In a battle of two willful teams, the Carmel Corsairs managed to squeeze out a 62-56 win overtime win in the Feb. 18 semi-final of the Carmel IHSA 3A Sectional Tournament. Despite holding a 25-17 halftime lead, the Indians (24-7 Overall) faced a confused Corsair defense struggling to find a way to stop Marengo in the third quarter. Marissa Knobloch (17 points) sunk a “down the street” three-pointer that seemed to deflate the home team.

Congratulations to Margaret Dobbertin, who was selected as one of thirty-two finalists (out of 550 nominations) for the Golden Apple Award for Excellence in Teaching!

Durable medical goods such as wheel chairs, crutches, walkers or commodes can be expensive. The expense often arises as part of a health crisis or physical injury that brings many other unexpected costs as well.

When Dinah Binder retired and moved to Marengo two years ago, she left a position with Cuba Township in Barrington. Cuba Township has a program for lending durable medical goods to township residents. Binder wondered if there was any place in Marengo where people could borrow things like walkers, crutches or wheel chairs. She called various organizations and churches around town and found that no one offered this service.

The results of the 12th Annual First National Challenge were announced at Marengo Community High School on Saturday, January 11th, during the “Winter Challenge”, at which Marengo and Harvard Varsity Wrestling, Varsity Girls Basketball and Varsity Boys Basketball competed.

The “First National Challenge” is an event that encourages community participation and school spirit while raising funds for the Marengo and Harvard Booster Club programs.

Why start plants from seeds versus buying young plants from stores? It is less expensive to start from seeds particularly if you need quite a few plants and the variety available from seed usually exceeds the choices in the garden centers. There are vegetables that are easy to start in the garden from seed for beginners that wish to explore this option.

On Tuesday, Jan. 29, the Marengo Fire Dept. offered a presentation to explain why they need and are requesting you to vote “Yes” on an upcoming referendum.
