New gallery adds to downtown Culver atmosphere

November 8, 2014

Culver’s business community is now home to a vibrant, new art gallery, IT’S YOU! at 110 S. Main Street in downtown Culver.

In her adjoining studio, separated from the gallery by long drapes, Jan Peyser, owner and silversmith jeweler, is inspired by “cascading and uplifted forms in nature, dance, and architecture.” In her gallery, she offers meticulously designed and hand-crafted collections by American and Canadian artisans carefully chosen for their attention to detail and excellent craftsmanship.

Monterey Hardware store has long, storied past

November 2, 2014

The fact that a trip to Loehmer's Do-It-Best hardware in Monterey feels like a trip back in time is no coincidence; in a way, it is a trip back in time (see our story on the hardware today here: http://thepilotnews.com/content/monterey-hardware-store-hearkens-back-it...)

Monterey hardware store hearkens back to its legacy of small-town service and style

November 2, 2014

When Culver's century-plus-year-old local hardware closed in 2013, the community collectively felt the blow of the loss of local, hometown service and convenience. Loehmer's Do It Best hardware in Monterey, then, just might be a welcome alternative to "big box" options, and one much closer to home for Culverites seeking that necessary part in a hurry -- or more, for that matter.

Culver council candidates square off at Nov. 4 election

November 2, 2014

Three candidates for two vacant seats on Culver's town council will square off at the polls on Nov. 4 at the Culver train station-depot on Lake Shore Drive. A third council seat, that of present council member Bill Githens, will be filled by a party appointment as Githens will take up his elected position on the Marshall County council in January.

Two of the three candidates -- current council member Sally Ricciardi and Dave Beggs -- were selected in August at the town's Republican causus, while the third, Joel R. Samuelson, is running as an independent.

MILLER'S MERRY MANOR TRICK-OR-TREATING

Legislators laud groundbreaking effort to address future of Culver public schools

October 30, 2014

If there was one theme from Indiana Senator Randy Head (R- Logansport) and State Representative Tim Harman (R - Bremen) during their meeting with the Culver Community School board and school administrators last week, it's that the school took the right, and proactive, approach: facts, not vitriol, and direct dialog over mailings.

Water, sewer rate details explained during eventful Culver council meeting

October 28, 2014

During an eventful Oct. 14 meeting, Culver's town council took its first formal steps to ratify a significant hike in water and sewer rates, untangled the previous meeting's issues regarding new street lights and holiday lighting in Culver, made final approval of its 2015 budget, and debated details of a yard-stored pontoon boat with a local property owner.

Town of Culver receives $500k grant towards new water plant

October 28, 2014

Call it an early Christmas present for the town of Culver, or a farewell gift for just-departed town manager Dave Schoeff. The town received news late last week through the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA) that its bid for a grant for $500,000 to go toward the town’s water plant project, was successful.

The amount, says town council president Ginny Munroe, is estimated to be just shy of a third of the cost of the project.

Generosity of local photographer rewarded with ‘gift from the entire community’

October 25, 2014

Culver resident, Culver Community High School mom, and frequent photographer of local youth-related events Karen Lee wasn't expecting a request to take a quick couple of student photos one recent afternoon at the CCHS gymnasium. She also wasn't expecting the gift she received from an appreciative group of friends, parents, and other community members, who plotted the ruse to get her into the gym to make a special presentation.
