For the few in Culver who haven't yet noticed, the Lions Club's community sign -- on Lake Shore Drive adjacent to the depot-train station the club calls home -- has had a major renovation, and is now completely electrical, with "rotating" messages, the date and time, and a much easier method of text-changing for Mike Overmyer, who operates the new technology.
The largest employer in Marshall County is now also a health care provider for its many employees, and Culver Academies Human Resources Director Diane Avery couldnât be happier.
Avery says the genesis of the idea began two years ago, when she read an article about medical practice coming full circle and the rebirth of a popular trend in the 1960s for large organizations to host onsite health clinics for their staff. With todayâs rising health care costs, she says, institutions such as the Academies are seeking ways to keep those costs down.

LAKEVILLE âÂ John Glenn worked out a little equation Friday night âÂ Defense plus Josh Anderson equals win.
The visiting Falcons held LaVille scoreless from the field during an 11-minute stretch in the second half, and Anderson scored a game-high 20 points and grabbed six rebounds in a 52-39 Northern State Conference boys basketball win between future first-round Bi-County Tournament opponents at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium.
