Council bids Doss fond farewell

May 9, 2011

A grateful Culver Town Council bid a fond farewell to Town Manager Michael Doss last week, as he prepared to leave Culver for his native West Virginia immediately following the April 26 meeting.
Doss told the Council and audience, “I can’t say how much this town has meant to me over the last couple of years, personally and professionally.”
Noting Culver residents and Council members were “very welcoming to me” when he first arrived in Culver, Doss praised the Council and Town Clerk, among others.

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."
