Pilgrims top Cavs in dual meet

May 5, 2011

CULVER — With two players only newly returned from their senior trip, Culver couldn’t quite find the fourth score it needed, while Plymouth turned in a new nine-hole low to edge out the Cavaliers 165-169 on their home course at Mystic Hills Wednesday.
“Our goal is to be competitive at every match. We talked about it before we got off the bus, this is a match we should win,” said Plymouth head boys golf coach Ben Waymouth. “We shot a 165 tonight; 165’s our best nine-hole round to date, so I’m pleased with that. Everybody shot 44 or better, and varsity-wise I had four guys that were low 40s.”

Hollywood star Jackie Cooper, dead at 88, brought Culver to the silver screen

May 4, 2011

When the news hit the wires May 3 that lifelong Hollywood star Jackie Cooper had died, many remembered him as one of the most popular child stars of the 1930s (though he’s also remembered for his more recent role as newspaperman Perry White in the 1970s and `80s "Superman" movies).
While still a teenager, however, Cooper's star shone over Culver when he was cast in the lead role (as "Tom Allen") in the 1939 Universal Studios production, "The Spirit of Culver."
