Jim Brugh leads Academies’ retirees with 42 years

July 3, 2014

-
Roush, Duckett, and Gleason also end their Academies’ careers

With the end of the 2013-14 came the close of the careers of four Culver Academies’ instructors – two in foreign language and a pair in leadership. Three of those retiring instructors earned emeritus status for more than 20 years of service to Culver. Together, the four totaled 108 years in Academies’ classrooms.

Lyman, Shepard, Urbin bid CES farewell

July 3, 2014

It has officially begun. The long awaited summer of 2014 has kicked off to a warm start, filling Culver with a newfound energy and a taste for excitement.

The school year has drawn to a close and the students have energetically taken to the beach, while their teachers have packed up and prepared for a much-needed break. However for some, this is the last time they will have to say goodbye to their classrooms and students as they begin various new chapters in their lives.

Park board establishes individual beach pass, updates on other matters

June 28, 2014

Individual -- as opposed to family -- beach passes are now available at Culver's town park, and at a lower rate than the seasonal passes issued for entire families. This after a recommendation from Culver park superintendent Marc Hayden and vote by the park board at its June 10 meeting.

Hayden told the board he had polled park patrons as to the notion of seasonal passes for a single individual, something the beach previously didn't offer, and was met with overwhelmingly positive feedback.

Culver Lions recognize Davis, Winters at anniversary gala

June 28, 2014

Culver's Lions Club held its annual anniversary meeting May 28, this year marking 71 years since the Culver club's founding. The event is also the traditional night when two members are feted with the "Lion of the Year" award and Melvin Jones Fellow.

The evening included a slideshow presentation recalling the club's past years, followed by the "Lion of the Year" award, now given in honor of late, longtime Culver Lion Larry K. Welsh. Recognized was Lion Ned Davis, who was introduced by the club's First Year Director, Dan Adams.

If these walls could talk: the beach lodge and park - part 1 of 2

June 28, 2014

By a happy coincidence, our ongoing series of 'virtual' walks through the historic places and spaces of Culver takes us this week to the town park and beach lodge -- a timely visit since the beach lodge itself has been the subject of much discussion by way of Culver's park board for several months now. The primary focus has been on the condition of -- and need to renovate -- the 1937 building, which happily appears poised to carry on for many more years (someone who surveyed it recently, as I recall, described it as being "built like a tank" or something to that effect).

Academies honors 143 past, present staff members at dedication of Distinguished Service Monument

June 25, 2014

A granite bench honoring 143 staff members of the Culver Academies with more than 25 years of service was dedicated May 1, with room for others who may reach that milestone in the years to come.

Each name on the Staff Distinguished Service Monument represents a full-time, non-faculty employee with 25 years or more of continuous service to Culver. The bench is located in the northwest corner of Manuel Green and complements the Faculty Distinguished Service Monument dedicated in May 2009 that honors teaching faculty with 25 or more years of service.

Tall buildings may be an expensive challenge for Culver fire dept.

June 24, 2014

Culver's fire department could have a very expensive problem on its hands, depending on results of an ISO (Insurance Service Organization) assessment of the department and its equipment.

This according to fire chief Terry Wakefield in reporting the matter to the Culver town council at its June 10 meeting.

At issue is the department's lack of aerial ladder equipment in light of the tall buildings in Culver and, according to Wakefield, especially on the campus of Culver Academies, where four-story buildings present an access challenge for firefighters.

Visitor Center, museum hold grand opening during Taste of Culver

June 24, 2014

Those visiting Culver (or locals curious to hear the latest or dig into the past) have a ‘one stop shop’ for the current and historical story of Culver following Saturday’s dedication and grand opening of The Culver and Lake Maxinkuckee Visitor Center and The Museum of Culver and Lake Maxinkuckee History, both located in adjacent spaces at the corner of Jefferson and Main Streets in the First Farmers Bank building.

Town council changes on the horizon with new filing, vacant seats

June 24, 2014

This fall will likely see several changes in the makeup of Culver's town council, with recent filings and plans on the part of current members to move on.

Dave Beggs, a Culver resident and owner of Main Street Manor in downtown Culver, recently filed as a Republican for a council position in this November's election.

Two council members' terms are up this fall, those of Lynn Overmyer and Sally Ricciardi.

Culver council, plan commission hold joint session on wind turbines

June 21, 2014

Whatever else emerged from last week's (June 10) joint work session between Culver's town council and plan commission, it was the value of two such decision-making bodies sitting down together to discuss debated issues, something most participants said they hoped would happen more often.
