Legality of park board appointment questioned

February 5, 2012

A Culver town council vote Jan. 17 to leave parks and recreation board member Patty Stallings on that board didn't close the matter. Instead, debate over the matter was very much alive at last week's (Jan. 24) council meeting, and may be decided with finality at the Feb. 8 meeting.

As was the case Jan. 17, the controversy centered on Stallings' party affiliation, since four of the park board's six seats must be evenly split between Democrats or Republicans.

**CULVER HISTORY CORNER**
Sponsored by the Antiquarian and Historical Society of Culver
http://www.culverahs.com

It's been sometime since this once-regular feature graced the pages of The Culver Citizen, though several readers have asked about it and suggested it be continued (something your editor always had in mind, so long as there are more buildings to mine for history, left in Culver!).

February 4, 2012

EDITOR'S NOTE: While we don't typically run letters to the editor on our website, a reader suggested this one merits publication here. It's a note of thanks to the community for the January event in Culver which raised more than $30,000 for Rob Reinhold, who is battling ALS here. It follows, below.

Relay 2012 poised to put Culver over the half-million mark

February 4, 2012

It's hard to believe this April 20 weekend will mark the fifth annual Relay for Life in Culver, but organizers assured community members at a recent kickoff event at the train station-depot, that indeed it is.
Coming off of a total of $138,000 raised for the American Cancer Society at last year's student-led event, that puts Culver on track to top the half-million dollar mark this year (the grand total for the previous four is $490,000).

Geiselman, Millers honored at Lions’ annual community awards event

February 3, 2012

The Culver Lions Club's annual community awards night proved as memorable an event as its predecessors last Wednesday, when Jeanette Geiselman was feted as Citizen of the Year, and Ward and Esther Miller's Painter and the Poet as Organization of the Year.

Lion Marilyn Kelly introduced the Millers, noting she and Esther "go way back," having shared meals, parties, and child-rearing.

"I watched her talent grow," said Kelly. And then into her life came a very special gentleman with a way with words. They've become a big part of the community."
