Culverâ€™s incredible hockey legacy is sometimes overÂlooked or even taken for granted, so frequent are state championship titles won (21 so far) and so many are the Culver Academies graduates who made their way to the NHL.
But one whole Culver family has had remarkable sucÂcess on the ice: that of Academies advancement officer Kevin Kucera, two of whose sons have garnered attention at the collegiate level for their hockey success, and whose youngest son is already poised to follow in their footsteps.

PLYMOUTH â€” Eighty-five young adults in Northwest Indiana had the opportunity this summer to do more than mow a lawn or babysit for some extra cash. They were part of a three-year-old program offered by a partnership between the Indiana Department of Transportation, the Department of Workforce Development, and the Department of Natural Resources to young people from economically-challenged families. The youth earned a little more than $11 per hour to do tasks similar to what a full-time INDOT employee would do in a typical day.

PLYMOUTH â€” In an emergency situation a fireman is known to be able to endure great hardship and trial to save lives. One Plymouth fireman is taking that a step â€” make that a jog â€” further.
Plymouth fireman John Pasley will be running the full course of this yearâ€™s Blueberry Stomp. You likely wonâ€™t be able to recognize him by his face because you probably wonâ€™t be able to see it. In order to help Rileyâ€™s Childrenâ€™s Hospital, Pasley will run the full 9.3 miles in full fire gear -â€” including helmet and airpack.
