Ten years after closing, Pinder’s still one of Culver’s most beloved eateries, PART 1 of 2

April 16, 2012

It may be hard for many Culverites to believe, but it's been 10 years (or will be, this fall) since Ed and Lora Pinder and family closed the doors for the last time on one of the most beloved local eateries in most residents' memories. Ed told the Citizen at the time it had "even older men my age" crying. "There were lots of tears," he said.

Culver’s Titanic connection -- 100 years later

April 15, 2012

Of the approximately 700 survivors of the April 12, 1912 sinking of the RMS Titanic ship, only one would eventually settle in Indiana, and August Wennerström made Culver his home -- a home he loved so much he named one of his children Culver. Further, evidence of the Titanic connection to Culver still exists in the form of three maple trees planted in memory of the children of the widower of one soul lost in the sinking.

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.”

Lions hear of Henley’s Tuskegee Airmen connection, future of museum

April 9, 2012

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. She added museums make people feel connected to their communities.
