Jordan Markle of Angola and Jordin Cook of Plymouth were just two of hundreds of interns and weekend workers for the Super Bowl in Indianapolis. Read about Jordin's experience tomorrow in the Pilot News.
A Culver town council vote Jan. 17 to leave parks and recreation board member Patty Stallings on that board didn't close the matter. Instead, debate over the matter was very much alive at last week's (Jan. 24) council meeting, and may be decided with finality at the Feb. 8 meeting.
As was the case Jan. 17, the controversy centered on Stallings' party affiliation, since four of the park board's six seats must be evenly split between Democrats or Republicans.
It's hard to believe this April 20 weekend will mark the fifth annual Relay for Life in Culver, but organizers assured community members at a recent kickoff event at the train station-depot, that indeed it is.
Coming off of a total of $138,000 raised for the American Cancer Society at last year's student-led event, that puts Culver on track to top the half-million dollar mark this year (the grand total for the previous four is $490,000).
BOURBON â€”Â Tritonâ€™s girls basketball team made several goals at the start of the season. Among those, the Lady Trojans set themselves objectives to reach 15 wins and to win a conference championship.
On their last home game of the year Friday, they ticked both off their list.
Class A No. 7 Triton grabbed a 39-35 lead with a 4-0 finish to a 16-8 third quarter, then held off visiting LaVille down the stretch for a 51-47 Senior Night victory that clinched a three-way tie for the Northern State Conference championship along with Bremen and New Prairie.
GOSHEN â€” You live by the three; you die by the three.
If that old basketball saying is correct, the Goshen Redskins must have been living the good life lately.
The Redskins hit nine 3-pointers on the night, the last coming with five seconds left in the second overtime period to escape with a home win over the Plymouth Pilgrims, 58-55.
Goshen junior Sam Stegelmann was the hero for the Redskins, hitting the long distance shot from near the top of the key for the win.
The game wasnâ€™t always as close.
Falcons fly past Culver
Josh Anderson piled up 23 points, six assists, four rebounds, and three steals to lead John Glenn to a 55-35 Northern State Conference boys basketball win over Culver Community at The Aerie Friday.
Freshman Jake Strong contributed 11 points and four rebounds for the Falcons.
Trent Elliott paced Culver with 14 points.

PLYMOUTH â€” Saturday night was a night for dancingâ€¦ hours and hours of it in fact.
Many students filled the Plymouth High School cafeteria Saturday afternoon for a dance marathon organized by Hannah Jacobs and Cassie Gaines, both students at PHS, and both who have been patients at Riley Hospital for Children. Jacobs has spina bifida and is paralyzed from the waist down and Gaines has juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
PLYMOUTH â€”Â How does a school combat cyber bullying not on school grounds or that has been posted on social media not during the school day?
Thatâ€™s what the Plymouth Community School Corporation has had to handle this week. While no specific names were targeted online, several students used Twitter and Facebook to verbally battle against a comment made regarding another studentâ€™s weight.
The Culver Lions Club's annual community awards night proved as memorable an event as its predecessors last Wednesday, when Jeanette Geiselman was feted as Citizen of the Year, and Ward and Esther Miller's Painter and the Poet as Organization of the Year.
Lion Marilyn Kelly introduced the Millers, noting she and Esther "go way back," having shared meals, parties, and child-rearing.
"I watched her talent grow," said Kelly. And then into her life came a very special gentleman with a way with words. They've become a big part of the community."
