If these walls could talk: building stone in Culver, part 1

November 1, 2011

EDITOR'S NOTE: Continuing our series of virtual ‘walks’ through Culver’s historic buildings, we take a brief hiatus for a fascinating look at the stonework making up our iconic buildings. We’re fortunate to have an expert in the field to guide us on our journey, in the form of Paul McLeod (learn more about Paul in his bio at the end of this article). We’ll return to our trip up Main Street following this article, which will likely run in three parts.

A haunting on Main Sreet?

October 30, 2011

This week, when hordes of costumed trick-or-treaters take to the streets of Culver, they’re likely to pass by the former site of the Kelly Shop, at 110 N. Main Street in downtown Culver. What most won’t know is that, according to longtime former owner Marilyn Kelly, the site was once home to a poltergeist.

Kelly, who operated the Kelly Shop, first in just one side, and later in both sides of the former “K of P Building” from 1962 to 1982, believes the haunting spirit actually traveled to Culver from the South Bend area.

Turnovers lead Cavaliers past Trojans

October 29, 2011

CULVER — The Culver Cavaliers exacted revenge on West Central for an earlier season defeat in typical, grind-it-out fashion Friday night.
After West Central went up early with a 23-yard touchdown run at the 8:37 stop of the first quarter, the Cavs responded with two scores of their own from Kevin Hogan — a 3- and 2-yard run — to take a 14-8 lead and never looked back in a 24-14 win over the Trojans in a Sectional 33 semifinal at Culver.

Haunted Culver revisited: the Culver Cove ghost

October 28, 2011

On this Halloween weekend, we "resurrect" some CULVER CITIZEN articles from recent years on ghostly "hauntings" in the Culver area. Today's entry comes from October, 2007. --Editor

Jessye Gilley doesn’t really believe in ghosts.

The Culver community is once again rallying around one of its own, and once again it's thanks in part to one of the community's young people. This time, however, the student in question -- 6th grader Reilly Reinhold of Culver -- has a special connection to her project: she's raising money for the ALS Association (alsa.org), to fight the disease which has rapidly altered the life of her father, Culver Community High School graduate Rob Reinhold.
