PHS Olympics to celebrate French language, culture

April 30, 2012

PLYMOUTH — Plymouth High School French teacher Monty Peden is going out with a bang as he and his students plan the last major event before his retirement — and before the end of French being offered at the school. Next year, Chinese will be a foreign language option for students in the place of French.
Peden’s students, as well as many other teachers and parent volunteers, are collaborating to hold “PHS French Olympics” May 6.
“We are modeling, as much as can at the high school level, the real Olympics,” said Peden.

Community to determine museum’s future May 12

April 29, 2012

Six years after Culver’s first-ever museum opened its doors, the Antiquarian and Historical Society of Culver is concerned those doors may close, which AHS leaders say would be a great loss not just to local history buffs, but to virtually all facets of the community and even beyond.

As many in the area are aware, the Center for Culver History, presently located in the lower level of the Culver-Union Twp. Public Library, will be forced to depart that space in approximately 18 months, following a decision by the library’s board of directors in October, 2010.

Culver EMS seeks volunteers for benefit of entire community

April 28, 2012

Culver's EMS service is looking for a few community-minded individuals to fill much-needed gaps in the program's volunteer staff, a staff which has recently become markedly depleted.

The service can have up to 30 EMTs, says director Chuck Dilts, and 16 drivers. And while Culver's service has rarely quite attained those levels, right now numbers are low enough to prove challenging, at times, for those who are involved, not to mention expensive to taxpayers over the course of time, since hours must be covered, even if it means bringing in paid staff.

Preparing for demolition: ReStore volunteers go through Cook building

April 27, 2012

PLYMOUTH — The Cook building on Michigan Street will be removed over the next several weeks, as part of the River Park Square downtown renovation project. One of the first steps was allowing Habitat for Humanity ReStore workers to go through the sizable empty building, removing anything of value. They did so Friday, and found more than they expected.
"I'd never been in here before, and when I came in my eyes just lit up," said ReStore store manager Stephen Guriel, as he and other volunteers removed boards from the walls.
