June 1 weekend in Culver

June 1, 2012

In addition to Culver Comm. High School graduation Friday evening and Culver Academies graduation Sunday morning, the coming days and weeks in Culver are as packed as might be expected as summer gets underway. Here's the scoop:

Farmer's Market is open
Culver’s Farmer’s Mar­ket has opened, at the cor­ner of Jefferson and Ohio Streets near downtown Cul­ver. Every Saturday, ven­dors will be selling items from 9 a.m. to noon.

Evening carillon recital Saturday

Culver council sends controversial zoning decision back to plan commission

May 31, 2012

Concerned residents not only filled the meeting room at Culver’s town hall last Tuesday, but spilled into the hallways and office space as well, as Culver’s town council heard details on possible rezoning from Ralph Booker of the Marshall County Plan Commission.

The controversy grew from what had originally been a county-wide effort to identify parcels of land in which part of the land was legally located in Marshall County and the other part outside town limits, in the county.

Dyslexia program, one of handful in state, changing lives in Culver

May 29, 2012

Young Alina Pizur used to sit and cry, says her mother Barb, when working on her school reading assignments.

"She would know her sight words," recalls Barb, "but couldn't grasp a new word."

Alina's 2nd grade teacher, Tina Bailey, contacted Barb and discussed the specifics of Alina's struggles, eventually beginning to tutor the Culver Elementary youngster after hours, starting last December.

Barb has noticed a significant difference in her daughter's scholastic performance.

Culver observes Memorial Day

May 28, 2012

Culver’s VFW Post 6919, as well as its Ladies’ and Mens’ Auxiliaries, observed the occasion at the Masonic cemetery in Culver. Culver’s fire department and EMS also took part, and Post Commander Bryce Lindvall discussed the origins of the holiday (as “Decoration Day” following the Civil War), in addition to a flag burning ceremony and 21-gun salute.

If these walls could talk: 101 N. Main Street

May 28, 2012

For this week's installment of our ongoing series of historical "walks" through Culver's downtown, I have to resist the temptation to tell the "story" of the State Exchange Bank (today's First Farmers Bank) as an institution, and the giants who made it what it was (such as W.O. Osborn). It's a remarkable story on multiple levels, and you can read it online at the Culver Public Library's and Judi Burns' websites, and in Latham Lawson's extensive printed history, archived at the Center for Culver History on Main Street.

Culver Kiwanians laud Olivers, Lawson, CCHS students

May 27, 2012

Culver's Kiwanis Club gathered Thursday evening to fete local students, an outstanding area business, and an outstanding citizen from its own ranks, in addition to inducting new members Charlotte Hahn and Paul Liette.

At the Mystic Hills-based event, catered by Culver Coffee Company, Kiwanian Dick Swennumson introduced members of the Oliver family of Plymouth's Oliver Ford Lincoln-Mercury, recipients of special recognition by the Club, by noting the business "has helped our community for over seven decades."

Plan commission votes not to vacate Academy Road

May 27, 2012

After listening to citizen input and a general discussion, the Culver plan commission voted to make a recommendation to the county commissioners that they not abandon Academy Road.

A representative from the Academy was not present for the discussion but previously, the commissioners had requested a recommendation from the Culver plan commission regarding the vacation. The Academy previously made the request to the commissioners to vacate the road from the Culver city limits to State Road 10.

Locals share ideas at ‘town hall’ meeting on museum’s future

May 26, 2012

Several options were brought to the table at the May 12 "town hall" style meeting hosted by the Antiquarian and Historical Society of Culver at the Culver Elemen­tary gymnasium, but the central goals of the meeting were to get ideas flowing, and to enlist the voices, minds, and hands of the Culver community in preserving its history.

The meeting was motivated by the 18-month time frame before the Center for Culver History, the AHS' museum and research center, must leave its present home in the lower level of the Culver-Union Township Public Library.
