The Culver Community School board met November 18 for its first public hearing regarding the contract for a new superintendent of schools, and while the name of the person chosen as the next superintendent of schools -- set to replace outgoing superintendent Brad Schuldt in January -- was not made public, tempers flared from a handful of attendees over the matter of who was not chosen.

November 22, 2013

Though tensions ran high at a recent meeting of Culver's town council regarding the future of Culver's Emergency Medical Service, the special follow-up work session on the subject, which took place prior to last Tuesday's council meeting, seemed a very different story. In fact, by the end of the meeting, many in the audience and on the council were lauding the work of EMS director Brandon Cooper in explaining the department's funding, future plans, and steps towards compliance with new state mandates regarding EMS training scheduled to kick in next July.

Geiselman “Lives United” in her advocacy for transportation services

November 16, 2013

CULVER – “Live United” isn't just a slogan. It's a way of life for one active Culver senior. Her journey, recently shared with the United Way of Marshall County, shows that community engagement sometimes involves lending a hand. And sometimes it means lending your voice to support a cause and help build a better life for all.

Jeanette Geiselman figures that she has paid her dues.

“I'm originally from Rochester,” she said, adding with a laugh, “but I married a man from Culver and I've been here 60 years so I imagine Culver has accepted me by now.”

We're once again on the move, strolling through the historic buildings of Culver in our continuing series of looks at the history of said buildings. It's a short walk from our last entry, Culver's longtime movie theatre, to the store next door at 614 Lake Shore Drive, which many longtime Culverites will recall as "Hansen's" or simply "Clara's."

Culver park lights, rink may facilitate a ‘winter wonderland’

November 15, 2013

Culver's park is one step closer to becoming a "winter wonderland" for both locals and visitors, after extensive discussion and decision-making on the part of the parks and recreation board at last Wednesday's monthly meeting.

Discussion began as follow-up to two matters suggested at prior meetings: that of including Christmas lights in the park alongside those installed in the town proper, and of installing a temporary ice skating rink at the site of the basketball courts alongside Lake Shore Drive this winter.
