  • Speech Hall of Famer

    By Daisy Hutzell-Rodman

    “Success breeds success” is the motto of Marrianne Driml.

    Driml certainly breeds success herself. She taught English, world literature and communications at Glenwood Community High School for 38 years, retiring in 2008. She coached the high school speech team for 31 years and still volunteers to help speech students.

    “I know I’ve coached 100 to 150 people,” Driml said.

  • Engine 15

    Even a normally subdued fire chief had excitement in his voice talking about the Glenwood Volunteer Fire Department’s new truck.

    “We’re tickled to death, we’ve never had anything like this since I’ve been around,” GVFD chief Butch Fidler said. “It’s too bad it wasn’t ready in time for the homecoming parade.”

  • Sudden Death

    Dale Lingle thought his 16-year-old son was simply sleeping off a late night of computer and video games when he found him still lying in bed in the middle of the afternoon  July 18.

    “He was a typical teenager. In the summer, he would stay up late on the computer and playing video games,” Dale said. “I went in to get him out of bed and he didn’t wake up.”

    More than two months after his death, Codie Lingle’s family finally knows with some certainty what caused the death of their son and brother.
