Memory of Culverite’s granddaughter helps inspire collaboration against cervical cancer

October 10, 2011

The late granddaughter of a longtime Culverite is at the heart of a new, Indianapolis-based initiative to battle HPV and cervical cancer.
Twenty-three-year-old Kristen Forbes -- granddaughter of Phyllis Lindvall of Culver and daughter of Brenda Lindvall Forbes of Noblesville, Indiana -- lost her life to HPV-caused cervical cancer, spurring her father, Kirk Forbes to write the regionally lauded book, “Love, Kristen: One young woman’s courageous battle against cancer” about his daughter’s struggles. That book, and Forbes’ story, were profiled in the Culver Citizen last year.

Lions trump Cavs at Culver Sectional

October 9, 2011

CULVER — It took giving up a goal to wake the Lions up. Once they did, they took control.
After Kyle Vlach’s solo goal in the 45th minute cut Bremen’s lead to 2-1, the Lions went to work. Josh Brenneman scored on a penalty kick in the 57th minute, then assisted on a Danny Reynoso strike less than a minute later to put Bremen over the top, 4-1 in a semifinal win at the Culver Community Boys Soccer Sectional Wednesday.
Bremen moves on to play Argos, which beat Winamac 10-0 Wednesday, in the championship Saturday at 6 p.m.
