Academies choir makes beautiful music in Austria

July 24, 2011

When you hear the name Mozart, you might associate it with words such as “child prodigy,” “classical music,” or “talented composer.”

But for 21 Culver Academies students, the name Mozart will yield the sights and sounds of Salzburg, Austria – home of the Mozart International Choral Festival. On June 28, the students and five adults departed the United States en route to Salzburg, Austria, where they were invited to sing in the second annual Mozart International Choral Festival.

Monterey man hopes to utilize Monterey Elementary building as Christian school

July 23, 2011

Many Monterey residents have been lamenting the impending emptiness of Monterey Elementary School following the news in May that the school would close and its students become part of Culver Elementary School.
If Eugene Berg of Monterey has his way, the halls of MES could echo with students once more.
This time, however, Berg hopes the building can be home to a private Christian school, a project he says he’s been contemplating for the past five years or so.

July 21, 2011

The potential role of Culver’s Town Council -- and other local government bodies -- in possible installation of dozens of wind turbines in Union Township was discussed at last week’s (July 12) Council meeting. Audience member Hank Bilsland, of South Street in Culver, asked if the Council had taken a position on the matter, which has been the subject of several meetings in the area in recent months.

Aker talks Culver Marina changes, additions, and TV show

July 20, 2011

Those members of Culver’s Kiwanis Club hadn’t yet experienced the Boardwalk Bar and Grille at the Culver Marina on State Road 117 had their chance recently, as marina owner Gary Aker hosted the club for a closer look at the longstanding business’ operations.
Kiwanis member Bob Volkert, in introducing the speaker, said Aker has been “a wonderful sponsor for our (Kiwanis) bass tournament, as well as (local realtor) Chris Collins. They made it a huge success. It was probably the most successful single-day fund-raiser Kiwanis has held.”

If these walls could talk: 203 and 117 S. Main

July 20, 2011

We continue our series of semi-regular journeys through Culver’s past as we look at the lives of historic buildings in the Culver area.
This week, besides the fact that this series is back after a bit of a lack-of-space-induced hiatus, we’ve reached a bit of a milestone: we’ve concluded our stroll down the east side of Main Street in the downtown area (maybe someday we’ll look at houses or other buildings on Main, south of the downtown area). Instead, we’re doing an imaginary 360-turn as we cross the street and begin a walk northwards on the west side of the street.
