Debate over outdoor Culver dining ends in temporary agreement

April 14, 2012

Culver Community reloads for 2012 baseball season

April 13, 2012

The past is past.

Following Culver Community’s first sectional championship in 25 years last season, that’s the message head coach Mike Elliott and his staff are sending to the Cavaliers this year.

With just four starters back in pitcher and utility player Collin Stevens, second baseman/ pitcher Sam Hissong, short stop/ pitcher Kyle Vlach and center fielder Nick Pritz, Elliott is hoping his largely inexperienced team can find an identity of its own in 2012 rather than resting on the laurels of last season’s historic finish.

Library board discusses fire and security updates, discovers funding source

April 10, 2012

At its March 20th meeting, the Culver Union Township Library Board discussed updating its fire and security systems and voted to run a complete inventory of non-book library belongings, using money from a recently discovered Bond Operations and Reserve Fund. The inventory will fulfill an insurance requirement for the library’s bond.

“There has not been a thorough inventory done of the building, maybe ever,” Treasurer Alfred Nyby said to the board. “We do feel, for insurance purposes and our own control, we need an inventory of everything the library owns.”

The Culver Lions Club's regular meeting last week was focused on history, both of a local and international nature. Rachel Meade, director of the Center for Culver History museum opened the evening's programs with a discussion of the value museums provide to communities, from their preservation of artifacts (Culver's museum preserves over 1,000 objects, Meade noted), to their centrality, nationally, in educating the public.

Vacating Academy Road among town council topics

April 7, 2012

Among items discussed at a fairly short town council meeting March 27 was the possible conversion of part of Academy Road in Culver to a private drive, an item raised by town attorney Jim Clevenger.
Clevenger noted Jeff Kutch, director of facilities at Culver Academies, recently approached the Marshall County commissioners asking the county to consider vacating the portion of roadway east of the town limits of Culver and up to State Road 10. The entirety of that section is surrounded by Culver Academies' campus or faculty housing, and is presently a county-owned roadway.
