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.

CCHS, CCMS students discuss bullying during convocation

October 22, 2014

In a rare joint convocation of both Culver Comm. Middle and High School students, the high school auditorium last Wednesday was home to a special event focusing on the effects of bullying among children and teens.

Led by CCHS guidance counselor Brenda Sheldon and CCMS counselor Missy Trent, the event was part of a month-long endeavor to focus on the issue within the school corporation and, thanks to Trent's passionate endeavors in recent weeks, the entire community. It was also timed to coincide with National Bullying Prevention Week, Oct. 4 through 10.

Preservation effort offers incentives to homeowners, seeks to retain local culture

October 21, 2014

Preserving historic buildings around Culver and Lake Maxinkuckee isn't just relevant for its own sake -- it may also save property owners (or not-for-profits or municipalities) plenty of money. And it may also help save the culture and flavor of a Culver many fear is disappearing fast.

That was part of the message delivered at two recent events, and it may be welcome especially in areas where some are concerned that the historical and cultural legacy of the community is giving way to a trend of destroying the old and replacing it with massive "mini-mansions," as some have suggested.
