Rakich adds name to town council ballot

July 31, 2014

One more candidate has thrown her hat into the ring for Culver's town council race this fall.

Jean Rakich of Culver filed as a Republican to run for one of the vacant seats on the council recently, adding a new possibility to the several changes awaiting the board come January. Rakich is a former business owner in Culver and a frequent participant -- as audience member -- in council and other municipal board meetings here.
As announced last month, Dave Beggs, owner of Main Street Manor in downtown Culver, also filed as a Republican for a council position in this November's election.

Culver's Wesley Church takes over former St. Mary’s daycare

July 24, 2014

Culver will be home to a new daycare this August -- or, depending on one's view, the relocation of a former daycare, one of just two Marshall County daycares south of Plymouth.

In the wake of the announcement of the closing of St. Mary of the Lake Catholic Church's childcare ministry in Culver this past May, discussion ensued that Wesley United Methodist Church -- already home to a well-established preschool of nearly 50 years' longevity -- might take on the daycare.

Culver faces tough choices in future of emergency medical care

July 23, 2014

Culver's EMS -- and by extension community as a whole -- is facing some difficult decisions in the present and future.

Money, of course, is the albatross around the neck of the service, as well as a great many others around the state. But what's specifically fueling the money woes is fairly standard from community to community, according to Cooper.

As regulations have become more demanding, more is expected from volunteers in terms of training hours -- 220 are required even for the lowest level of service, Basic EMS; the new Advanced level requires an additional 200 hours.

Culver EMS transitions to new Advanced level, offers enhanced service

July 23, 2014

It may have done so quietly, but emergency medical aid in Culver passed a milestone recently, in moving its level of care for Culver area residents up a notch.

The buildup to the change was a topic of much discussion last year, with Culver's EMS service and town council wrestling with the feasibility of increased costs and training demands, though in the end, Culver-Union Twp. EMS director Brandon Cooper assured the council the service would be ready to meet state-mandated changes, which took effect July 1.

-"LITTLE SAVAGES" PRODUCER UPDATES ON FEATURE FILM SHOT HERE LAST SUMMER

If there's one oft-repeated question on the lips of Culverites since last summer -- and especially as this summer has fully settled in – it’s, "What's the latest on 'Little Savages'?"

The not-so-good news is already apparent: the movie, which was shot in Culver last summer, has not yet hit cinemas across the world and become the instant hit most in the Culver area are hoping it will be -- again, not yet.
