Culver park board discusses drowning incident, other matters

August 3, 2014

Discussing what he called a "very sad and tough situation," Culver park superintendent Marc Hayden said counselors from the Bowen Center in Plymouth visited beach staff following a drowning off the beach earlier this month.

Hayden -- addressing the Culver park board during its July 14 meeting -- noted Bowen Center assistance was made available via a recently-inaugurated employee assistance program for town employees, and that counselors would visit the park staff to discuss needs or questions -- especially on the part of younger staffers -- any staff might have following the incident.

Lake Max Triathlon set for Aug. 9

August 3, 2014

The third annual Lake Max Triathlon will launch Saturday, Aug. 9, and lead organizer Dana Neer -- also Wellness director at Culver Academies, from which the triathlon launches -- is excited as much as anything about the remarkable level of cross-community cooperation which has made the event such a success.

"The community has embraced it," he says of the USAT-certified triathlon, which includes a 400-meter swim, 12 miles of biking around the lake, and a 5K run.

COUNCIL ALSO FINALIZES COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AT RECENT MEETING
-

Ongoing discussion of properties deemed unsightly or ill-maintained in Culver took a heated turn at last week's town council meeting, with one property owner engaged in a verbal clash with the council, and specifically one member.

Scotty Van Hawk, owner of a College Avenue property at which the height of front yard grass had been the subject of council discussion and action last summer as well as in recent weeks, addressed the council during the citizen input portion of the meeting.

St. Joseph E.R. ‘vital’ to Culver, says board chair Zeglis

July 31, 2014

PLYMOUTH -- St. Joseph Regional Medical Center held its annual Catch the Spirit Gala July 11 at Swan Lake Resort to talk about plans for a new and expanded emergency room for the Plymouth hospital.
The project, funded by Trinity Healthcare, will cost $8.5 million and will take a year to complete. Work has already started. But it was also about celebrating the work done by those who work in the hospital, said John Zeglis, Chairman of the SJRMC Plymouth Board of Directors and a Culver resident.

Rakich adds name to town council ballot

July 31, 2014

One more candidate has thrown her hat into the ring for Culver's town council race this fall.

Jean Rakich of Culver filed as a Republican to run for one of the vacant seats on the council recently, adding a new possibility to the several changes awaiting the board come January. Rakich is a former business owner in Culver and a frequent participant -- as audience member -- in council and other municipal board meetings here.
As announced last month, Dave Beggs, owner of Main Street Manor in downtown Culver, also filed as a Republican for a council position in this November's election.

‘Little Savages’ - the Culver Citizen movie review

July 26, 2014

Much of the Culver community (and beyond) has been waiting eagerly since last summer to get a look at "Little Savages," the family-oriented comedy-drama filmed here last August under the auspices of Bear Fruit Films, for whom "Savages" is the second production to date (one more is in post-production, another being shot this summer in Grand Rapids, and more on the slate).

Culver's Wesley Church takes over former St. Mary’s daycare

July 24, 2014

Culver will be home to a new daycare this August -- or, depending on one's view, the relocation of a former daycare, one of just two Marshall County daycares south of Plymouth.

In the wake of the announcement of the closing of St. Mary of the Lake Catholic Church's childcare ministry in Culver this past May, discussion ensued that Wesley United Methodist Church -- already home to a well-established preschool of nearly 50 years' longevity -- might take on the daycare.

Culver faces tough choices in future of emergency medical care

July 23, 2014

Culver's EMS -- and by extension community as a whole -- is facing some difficult decisions in the present and future.

Money, of course, is the albatross around the neck of the service, as well as a great many others around the state. But what's specifically fueling the money woes is fairly standard from community to community, according to Cooper.

As regulations have become more demanding, more is expected from volunteers in terms of training hours -- 220 are required even for the lowest level of service, Basic EMS; the new Advanced level requires an additional 200 hours.

Culver EMS transitions to new Advanced level, offers enhanced service

July 23, 2014

It may have done so quietly, but emergency medical aid in Culver passed a milestone recently, in moving its level of care for Culver area residents up a notch.

The buildup to the change was a topic of much discussion last year, with Culver's EMS service and town council wrestling with the feasibility of increased costs and training demands, though in the end, Culver-Union Twp. EMS director Brandon Cooper assured the council the service would be ready to meet state-mandated changes, which took effect July 1.
