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.

Three CES singers lauded at state level

February 28, 2012

After many efforts through the years, this year three Culver Elementary students have been chosen by the IMEA (Indiana Music Educators Association) for its elementary and middle school honor choir.

Since 1990, IMEA has sponsored the honor choir, and students who participate in Circle the State with Song area festivals have the opportunity to audition for these All-State Honor Choirs. Both choirs are select groups of approximately 140 singers each. Both groups performed at the Indiana Music Educators Association state convention Jan. 20 in Fort Wayne.

February 27, 2012

Culver’s town council began its Feb. 14 meeting with the appointment of Sally Ricciardi as board president, in the wake of former president Ed Pinder’s resignation from that position (though not from the council). Ginny Munroe was voted in as vice president.

Following up on another past matter -- one of some contention in recent meetings -- Pinder told the council and audience that Rhonda Reinhold, who had submitted her name for a seat on Culver’s parks and recreation board, has withdrawn her name.

Former Culverite’s battle for life reignited, 25 years later

February 23, 2012
