Ring found on D-Day beach is mysterious legacy of unknown Culver soldier

July 6, 2012

The Culver Academies Museum & Gift Shop, at 102 S. Main Street in downtown Culver, has recently become home to a unique and fascinating historical mystery.

The museum was contacted earlier this year by John Carr Pierce, who described -- and offered to send to the museum -- a Culver Black Horse Troop ring found on the beaches of Normandy on June 7, 1944, the day after the D-Day invasion.

In three short years, the Culver-Union Twp. Public Library will have a major celebration, I'm sure, of its centennial. My intent isn't to jump the gun on telling the library’s story, but in our virtual "walk" up and down Culver's Main Street downtown, we've reached the door of that stately institution. As usual, I'll limit my writing here to the development and changes in the building itself, more than offering a thorough history of anything and everything about the library.

Culver requests water conservation, fireworks prohibited in drought’s wake

July 3, 2012

Due to the lack of significant rainfall, residents are encouraged to take steps to conserve water outside as well as inside their homes. Some suggestions for conserving bggwater outside include watering early in the morning or in the evening just a couple of times per week, checking sprinklers to make sure they are not wasting water on the sidewalk, driveway or streets, using a hose with a hand-held nozzle to water flowers and shrubs. Limit washing vehicles or other modes of transportation.
