Itâ€™s no secret Culver is a unique community with a diverse and often well-traveled population, and fitness trainer Shaina Lampton thinks it deserves a fitness facility to accommodate its character.
Thatâ€™s why sheâ€™s opening Bottom Line Training Company at 232 South Main Street in Culver, in the Main Street Centre (though locally itâ€™s often referred to simply as the Collins Building). The business will kick off with an open house May 7 from 4 to 7 p.m., with an official opening May 9.
There were plenty of questions, a number of suggestions, and ample emotions running high at Monday night's meeting of the Culver Community School board, but at the end of the night, few easy answers.
PLYMOUTH â€” The efforts of three area businesses to continue with their awarded tax abatements was approved by the Plymouth Common Council.
Aearo Technologies, Glenmark Industries and LSAC Plymouth all met the requirements for their abatements to continue. It is current city policy to review all businesses awarded abatements by the city on a yearly basis to determine if they are in â€śsubstantial complianceâ€ť with the terms of the abatement.
PLYMOUTH â€” The re-working of the city ordinance on the Community Improvement Commission will continue to undergo improvement.
Scheduled for second and third reading at last nightâ€™s meeting of the Plymouth Common Council the measure was sent back to the drawing board â€” of sorts â€” for City Attorney Nelson Chipman.
Discussion of the ordinanceâ€™s language was dissected by the Council and the decision was made to amend the work before hearing a second reading.

ST. LOUIS â€” It certainly wasnâ€™t a normal â€śreunion.â€ť
Beth Chamblin (PHS class of 1986), Nolan Barrios (PHS class of 1986), Heather King (PHS class of 1995) and Esther Rodriguez-Thompson (PHS class of 1983) recently had a meeting â€śon the runâ€ť â€” literally. The four comprised the team of Four 40-somethings from Plymouth that placed 20 of 171 co-ed teams in the marathon relay event of the Go! St. Louis Marathon and Family Fitness Weekend. The April event attracted over 23,000 participants from 47 states and 12 countries in 2010.
PLYMOUTH â€” Itâ€™s baffling to recognize that the same pesky granules of sand â€” the ones that somehow inevitably find their way into every unwelcome place imaginable while youâ€™re visiting the beach â€” can be transformed into such a worthwhile material as glass. Itâ€™s common to think of all the everyday practical uses we have for glass, from eye glasses and insulation to fiber optics, but there is great beauty to be extracted and wrought from glass as well. A perfect example of this is the glass bead.
Small towns may not actually play host to more rumors than larger cities, but at times small communities like Culver may seem to. One recent rumor has been troubling Corndance Cafe and Marmont Grille owner (and chef) George Pesek and his wife Tammy: that of the restaurantâ€™s impending doom in Culver.
â€śWe believe that rumor was started to hurt Corndance,â€ť says George. â€śWe never considered selling Corndance or our home.â€ť
Rumors have been circulating in the Culver-Monterey area as to the fate of the Monterey Elementary School, a part of the Culver Community School Corporation. Specifically, word has spread that April 25â€™s school board meeting may officially sound the death knell for the school.
