After such an enthusiastic response to last week's “If these walls could talk," I'd be remiss not to follow up this edition with a new installment, this one covering 107 S. Main Street, which Culverites for most of the 20th century would have associated with medicine and, likely as not, chocolate sodas.

A team victory: CGA swimmers earn program-first sectional title at Warsaw

February 10, 2012

CULVER — The Culver Girls Academy swim program can boast plenty of impressive accolades over its history.

The record board on the wall at the James R. Lowenstine Pool is lined with the names of All-American after All-American. But one bona fide that has eluded the program over its storied history is a sectional championship — until now.

Community, coffee and (trivia) questions in Culver

Some of the Culver community’s finest duked it out (intellectually, at least) at a Coffeehouse Trivia Night held last month at the Culver Coffee Company on Lake Shore Drive.

Various businesses and entities each sponsored a team at $100 per team, for a total raised of $800, which will support the 2012 Rotary

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.

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!).
