by Bill Keith, WSDP manager Fundraisers are nothing new for school groups. Every week some group is selling gift wrap, candy, candles or some other kind of knickknack. As the manager of WSDP-FM 88.1 I’ve worked with our students to find unique ways to raise money for the station. We have two upcoming fundraisers that are very important to our future success. I can’t believe that this weekend will be the 23rd 88.1FM Radio Auction. It seems like only yesterday that we were bringing back the auction after a several year hiatus. The auction has become the biggest fundraiser for WSDP, the student radio station at Plymouth-Canton Educational Park. This year’s auction will be held from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday. Area businesses have been …

Jeremy Hughes is a former Dearborn Schools' superintendent.
Experience, political connections and the prospect of a unifying influence were behind the Plymouth-Canton Community Schools board of trustees' decision to hire Jeremy Hughes as an interim district superintendent.

Craig Fiegel, superintendent of Plymouth-Canton Community Schools, is in Salina, KS, today for a job interview. Fiegel is among the finalists for the position of Salina School District superintendent, according to a story The Salina Journal published Thursday. The Plymouth-Canton school board hired Fiegel in 2008; in a 4-3 vote Sept. 28, 2010, the board decided against renewing his three-year contact. On Nov. 23, 2010, again in a split vote, the board suspended most of Fiegel's duties, reassigning the work to Deputy Superintendent Ken Jacobs. The four board members who voted against Fiegel — Judy Mardigian, John Jackson, Adrienne Davis and Dianne Gonzalez — have not been clear about why they are unhappy with Fiegel, other than to say the …

The arrest of a girls lacrosse coach, school budget and St. Patrick's Day.
Plymouth High School girls lacrosse coach – and Canton resident – Stephen Jay Nyquist was charged Wednesday with 12 counts related to child pornography.

The charges include three counts of possession of child sexually abusive material, three counts of distribution of child sexually abusive material and six counts of using a computer with another to commit a crime.
