Culver Wings restaurant debuts

February 17, 2012

Most Culverites have heard (or said) in recent years that the one dining option Culver may be missing, with the disproportionate
number of fine destination restaurants for which its known, is what Culver-raised entrepreneur John Zehner calls "a moderately priced, family friendly place."

The kind of place, he says, where diners can order wings, burgers, or (in this case all-beef) franks.

That's the need identified and addressed by way of Culver Wings, which opened yesterday (Feb. 15) at the site of the former Yacht Club, at 115 E. Jefferson St. in the downtown Culver area.

Pilgrims finish perfect at The Rock

February 17, 2012

PLYMOUTH — Plymouth has been something of a first half team lately, building big cushions in the first two quarters and holding off opponents in the second half.
That all changed Thursday.
Not that the Pilgrims had a slow start — they opened with a 21-14 first frame and led by six at 32-26 at the half — but it was an 18-6 third quarter that made all the difference, and Plymouth cruised to a 69-45 Northern Lakes Conference season-closing win over visiting Wawasee on Senior Night at The Rock.
