New Culver park superintendent Hayden prepares to take the reins

May 17, 2014

Marc Hayden, Culver's new park superintendent, wasn't really in the market for new job when he saw the listing for the position in the newspaper a few months ago. In fact, he initially "didn't pay much attention" to the opening. But when he saw the ad still there a week later, he got on the phone and began asking the voice on the other end -- which turned out to belong to park board member Patty Stallings -- for some background on the job.

"That got my curiosity up," Hayden told the Citizen last week, "and I submitted my resume and...was hired."

Fishburn says goodbye after 30 years-plus at dental desk

May 12, 2014

It's one of those most Culver of Culver things.

For a great many Culver residents, there have always been two dentists to choose from, one at each end of town, and in a great many ways, the experience of dental visits remains largely unchanged, even for decades. And for many here -- and from surrounding communities -- Helen Fishburn's voice, face, and caring approach have been part of that experience, though as of last Thursday, that will change.
