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."

Regular readers of this column know that a good deal of its business has taken place in one local restaurant notable for its walls of historical information; but the awesome burden of being the Citizen’s

Culver Academies students are 'Fencing for a Cure'

January 29, 2012

CULVER — When Culver Academies’ Desirae Major ’12 (Olathe, Kan.) was a sophomore, a senior on the fencing team talked about using the sport as a way to raise funds for charity. It would also be an interesting way to complete the senior service project. The best way, it seemed, would be to host a tournament with registration fees going to charity.
Major, who is a nationally-ranked saber fencer, thought it was a great idea at the time. But the tournament never got off the ground.

Mining marl, dodging rattlesnakes, and Weaver the ‘Renaissance man’

January 29, 2012

PART 2 OF 2
Editor’s note: In last week’s edition, we explored the unusual characteristics of land today owned in part by The Nature Conservancy, west of Thorn Road and north of State Road 10, as well as the legacy of the Allen Weaver family in mining the area for marl, used in the past as a farm fertilizer, but also giving evidence to the area’s glacial past.

Party affiliation at issue in park board appointment

January 26, 2012

Debate ensued Jan. 17 concerning the newly-reorganized Culver town council’s appointment to the Culver parks and recreation board, to which the council ultimately re-appointed current board member Patty Stallings, rather than applicant Rhonda Reinhold.

With Ed Pinder replacing Ginny Munroe as council president, and newest member Bill Githens on hand for his first meeting, members discussed the status of Stallings, a Republican who agreed to change party affiliation to fill a vacancy on the politically balanced board. Reinhold is a lifelong Democrat.
