If Culver area youth were to hold drives for the Culver Council of Churches food pantry year-round, says pantry Director Leroy Bean, the shelves would likely always be stocked and the coffers full of funds. Bean knows whereof he speaks: between November 15 and December 20, the pantry took in 4,258 pounds of donated items, and a good share of it came through the efforts of local young folks.

LAKEVILLE â Itâs not always the big-name players who make the big-time plays. Sometimes itâs the quiet role player who steps up and seizes the marquee moment.
On Friday, that player was Scotty Brown.
LAKEVILLE âÂ With the gameâs first basket Friday in the Bi-County Boys Basketball Tournament semifinal round, Tritonâs Griffyn Carpenter broke his schoolâs career scoring record.
And he never really stopped scoring the entire night.
The 6-foot-1 senior powered his way to a game-high 29 points and led the Class A No. 3 Trojans to a 59-44 win over host LaVille at Dale E. Cox Gymnasium.
Triton looks for its second straight title tonight, against Culver Community. Game time is scheduled for 8:30 p.m.
Culver's Pete Trone began his service on Culver's planning and zoning boards for which he was recognized by both the Culver Board of Zoning Appeals (in late November), and the Town Council (in December) 34 years ago.
Trone's father, Donaldson, arrived at Lake Maxinkuckee around 1904 when Donaldson's parents rented the old Norris farm on the east shore of the lake. That first summer, the family came by train and rented a horse and wagon, says Pete. Don Trone was 11 or 12.
