Culver’s DeWitt returns to Pearl Harbor for 70th anniversary of bombing

December 22, 2011

Culver’s Jim DeWitt hadn’t seen Pearl Harbor in 70 years, but over the week of Dec. 7, he and a number of others present on that fateful day, were given a hero’s welcome at the area many -- like DeWitt -- last saw when the wounds of the victims of Japanese bombers were still fresh, families of the dead still in shock.

Election ongoing hot topic at Culver council mtg

December 22, 2011

Two town council members last week added their comments to existing voices concerning the controversy over accusations made leading up to last month’s hotly-contested Culver town clerk race.

During the Dec. 13 regular meeting, Council member Lynn Overmyer defended outgoing clerk Casey Howard, who was defeated by Karen Heim, describing the “mess of paperwork” and “disarray” Howard was faced with when she first took over the clerk’s position, noting Howard straightened out the situation “professionally and promptly.”

No. 6 Jays trump No. 8 Cavs

December 21, 2011

CULVER — North Judson head coach Phil Shabi thinks John Eckert has more to give.

Given the 6-7 senior forward’s dominant performance at Culver Tuesday, that’s really saying something.
Eckert scored from the inside, on the fast break and from the perimeter to put up a game-high 26 points while ripping down a game co-leading 11 rebounds, powering the undefeated Class 2A No. 6 Bluejays to a 74-47 win over Class A No. 8 Culver on the road at John R. Nelson Gymnasium.

Culver Comm. Middle School students head to Knox for dose of ‘Reality’

Culver Community Middle School 8th graders headed to Knox Middle School last month for a little dose of "reality."

Comm. Foundation-funded sign helps Culver Lions' endeavors, care of historic station

December 18, 2011

For the few in Culver who haven't yet noticed, the Lions Club's community sign -- on Lake Shore Drive adjacent to the depot-train station the club calls home -- has had a major renovation, and is now completely electrical, with "rotating" messages, the date and time, and a much easier method of text-changing for Mike Overmyer, who operates the new technology.

Acadmies clinic hoped to be a ‘win’ for employees, school alike

December 17, 2011

The largest employer in Marshall County is now also a health care provider for its many employees, and Culver Academies Human Resources Director Diane Avery couldn’t be happier.

Avery says the genesis of the idea began two years ago, when she read an article about medical practice coming full circle and the rebirth of a popular trend in the 1960s for large organizations to host onsite health clinics for their staff. With today’s rising health care costs, she says, institutions such as the Academies are seeking ways to keep those costs down.

Drang, 45-year fixture at Lake Shore Clinic, retires

December 16, 2011

If Shellie Drang seems an indelible fixture at the Culver’s longest-running medical facility, it may have something to do with the 45 years she served there before her retirement from Lake Shore Clinic, earlier this year. In fact, she predated both physicians operating there, including Dr. Michael Deery, the longest-serving of the two.

Chamber honors Allyn, McInturff, Millers at annual fête

December 15, 2011

As in years past, the chill and dark of a December evening were utterly absent from the warm confines of Cafe Max on Main Street as a number of Culver’s businesspeople and community servants gathered to honor some of their own.

The Culver Chamber of Commerce’s annual awards banquet and ceremony paid tribute to Volunteer and Businessperson of the year, as well as bestowing a Lifetime Achievement award.
