Culver town manager position will be re-advertised

March 11, 2012

Culver’s town council will not hire a new town manager from any existing candidates, council members said at the Feb. 28 regular meeting. Instead, the position will be readvertised.

The town, which has been without a town manager since last April, narrowed down a long list of candidates to a small handful during two different rounds of advertising and interviewing. In the latest case, the search was put on temporary hold last fall until after elections, and the candidate landscape had changed once the council was able to refocus attention on the search.

Comeback kid: after big-city success, tragedy, Bennett returns to serve Culver

March 4, 2012

If you’ve been active in Culver over the past year or so, it’s likely you’ve run into Trent Bennett. It’s somewhat hard not to, after all, whether you’ve stopped by Culver’s Kiwanis Club, Lions Club, Culver Lake Fest, Culver Redevelopment Commission, Bennett’s Contracting, or just around town.

But the road from a childhood on State Street in Culver took Trent Bennett around the country — from Rose-Hulman to the east coast, to Indianapolis and beyond — and through tragedy and triumph — before eventually leading him back to State Street, in Culver.
