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.

McLeod details marl, geological history of Culver area

January 23, 2012

Editing assistance by Rachel Meade
Culver Academies Science instructor Paul McLeod recently gave members of Culver’s Kiwanis Club a crash course in Indiana’s geological history. McLeod’s specialization and interest in geology was evident as he addressed the audience on the glacial formation of the lake, local mining of glacier related materials, and the geological makeup of area buildings.

McLeod, who authored a two-part series this fall in The Culver Citizen on the geological history of many of Culver’s buildings, started with a disclaimer that he doesn’t “pretend to be an expert.

Glaciers, a forgotten local industry, and one local family's haven - Part 1 of 2

January 21, 2012

FOR WEAVERS, MARL-RICH LAND MORE THAN JUST INCOME SOURCE
PART 1 of 2

A largely unnoticed to many -- and certainly non-descript-looking -- piece of property just west of Culver holds a great many memories for Dan Weaver and others, and tells an unusual tale of a bygone industry and the local man who made a living from it.

Pinder looks back on a century’s memories, wisdom

January 20, 2012

Fay Pinder celebrated her 100th birthday at her son Ed and daughter-in-law Lora’s crowded Culver home last month. Some 100 people flowed through: right around one guest for every year she’s been alive, though no one would guess she has passed the century mark, to look at her.

Trojans top Cavaliers, 46-33

January 19, 2012

BOURBON — After a mere one-point decision to Triton Saturday, Culver head coach Kyle Elliott expected his players to start with some confidence Tuesday.

Instead, Culver put up just two points in the first quarter as the Class A No. 7 Trojans jumped out to an 8-2 lead at the break. The two teams went back and forth the rest of the night, but Culver was never able to get out in front, and Triton polished off 12 of 17 freebies in the final frame as the Cavs tried to stretch the clock, handing the challengers a 46-33 loss in a boys Bi-County opener at The Trojan Trench.

Lady Cavs avenge loss to Triton

January 18, 2012

BOURBON — Sometimes it’s better to be wrong.
Triton head coach Adam Heckaman had a presentiment before his girls’ Bi-County opener with Culver Tuesday that his girls may not have been focused on the task at hand.

The Class A No. 6 Lady Trojans coughed up 15 first half turnovers to surrender a 10-point lead at the intermission, and the defending tourney champion Lady Cavaliers held off their hosts down the stretch for a 45-40 win at The Trojan Trench.

Culver advances to play LaVille in the late semifinal at LaVille Thursday night at 8 p.m.

More than 500 show for Reinhold benefit

January 17, 2012

Culver’s Rob Reinhold may have summed up the enormity of Saturday’s benefit for his family in describing the event: “Overwhelming.”
Family members, friends, and attendees in general would concur, though the question lingers as to what was more overwhelming: the incredible community turnout or the amount of money raised. In both cases, the numbers are — well, overwhelming.
