Minor injury sustained in rollover

March 7, 2011

Student successfully using iPod to communicate

March 7, 2011

PLYMOUTH — It’s not surprising to hear that many 12-year-olds love using their hand-held electronic devises for playing games and chatting with friends, but the one that Travis Louckes uses is far from just a way to pass the time.
Travis, who has been diagnosed with autism complicated with a communication disorder, is non-verbal. Up until about a year ago when he received to his first iPod, his family and teachers would have to guess at what he needed or wanted. Now, he simply shows those around him what he needs by tapping on an icon or typing out a word.

Music you can bank on

March 7, 2011

Chad Van Herk, familiar to many in Culver as the manager of the local First Farmers Bank, charmed his audience at Culver’s REAL Meals last week with a mixture of original and familiar songs, which he sang to his own guitar playing. The audience was singing along with his last two numbers, “What a Wonderful World” (popularized by Louis Armstrong) and the Guy Lombardo classic, “Enjoy Yourself.” Van Herk said he’s been playing for more than 14 years and even has cut a CD a few years ago, which is available online.

Eagles in, Pilgrims out at Sectional 19

March 5, 2011

PLYMOUTH — Culver Military Academy rallied past Mishawaka Marian for a 55-51 reprisal victory, while South Bend St. Joseph’s used suffocating defense to knock out defending champion Plymouth in Class 3A Sectional 19 semifinal action at The Rock Friday.
The Eagles and the Indians will face off in the championship game tonight at 7:30 p.m. EST.
The old adage goes that the best defense is a good offense, but St. Joe showed that sometimes good defense can make for a pretty good offense, too.

Census’ Culver numbers could hurt, says Council

March 4, 2011

Recently-released census figures have come in indicating Culver’s population is down by about 200 persons, a matter which will impact the town of Culver’s funding in coming years.
This was part of the discussion at last week’s regular meeting of the Culver Town Council, during which Town Clerk Casey Howard ran some of the numbers.
The year 2000 census indicated Culver had a population of 1,539, said Howard, while the 2010 poll shows 1,353. Council member Ed Pinder asked Howard if she had any theories as to the change.
