Music you can bank on

March 7, 2011

Chad Van Herk, familiar to many in Culver as the manager of the local First Farmers Bank, charmed his audience at Culver’s REAL Meals last week with a mixture of original and familiar songs, which he sang to his own guitar playing. The audience was singing along with his last two numbers, “What a Wonderful World” (popularized by Louis Armstrong) and the Guy Lombardo classic, “Enjoy Yourself.” Van Herk said he’s been playing for more than 14 years and even cut a CD a few years ago, which is available online.

Census’ Culver numbers could hurt, says Council

March 4, 2011

Recently-released census figures have come in indicating Culver’s population is down by about 200 persons, a matter which will impact the town of Culver’s funding in coming years.
This was part of the discussion at last week’s regular meeting of the Culver Town Council, during which Town Clerk Casey Howard ran some of the numbers.
The year 2000 census indicated Culver had a population of 1,539, said Howard, while the 2010 poll shows 1,353. Council member Ed Pinder asked Howard if she had any theories as to the change.

Culver teachers at the statehouse: local faculty discuss controversial legislation, perception of their profession

March 3, 2011

Last week was a memorable one for Indiana politics, and that may go double for six Culver Community Schools teachers, who (using personal days on their own time) spent the day at the Indiana Statehouse in Indianapolis last Tuesday, in the midst of heated protests and attention surrounding two controversial pieces of legislation.

A memorable final run for Lady Cavs

March 1, 2011

CULVER — Culver Community head coach Tony Scheub told his Lady Cavs to hold their heads high as they left the locker room after the Class 2A Girls Basketball Semistate Saturday.
Because, although they may have fallen a little short of the championship, the list of what the team was able to accomplish far outweighs that close 47-43 loss to No. 1-rated Fort Wayne Luers.

Culver's run ends at semistate

March 1, 2011

ELKHART — Culver Community girls basketball skipper Tony Scheub’s voice cracked, partly from emotion, partly, no doubt, from guiding his team through a memorable tournament run.
With that diminishing voice, he relayed a powerful message to his squad following its 47-43 semistate loss to Class 2A No. 1 Fort Wayne Luers at Elkhart’s North Side Gymnasium Saturday.

Harper shares story of local African American community

February 28, 2011

As has been documented in recent years, Culver was once home to a thriving African American community which included members of the first integrated high school basketball team in Indiana (in 1922), an African Methodist Episcopal Church, and many more notable features. Of that community, Jim Harper remains to tell the story, which is what he did last week at two events at the Culver-Union Township Public Library -- one aimed at teens (last Thursday) and one at adults (on Saturday), in honor of Black History Month.

Culver ends regular season with road win

February 28, 2011

BREMEN — With Indiana’s version of March Madness mere days away, Culver capped the regular season on a high note Friday night.
After a tremendous start, Culver never looked back and topped Bremen, 54-39.
“We got them earlier in the year at the Bi-County Tournament but we knew this was going to be a dogfight, and we had some kids step up for us,” Culver coach Kyle Elliott said. “I’m very proud of the kids’ effort.”
As it has much of the season, Bremen dug itself an early hole, and couldn’t cut its deficit to less than 12 points over the final two quarters.
