restrooms, and other fixtures in the Culver Elementary School gym. Jackson Services, whose staff are graduates of Culver Community Schools, handled the demolition
work and said they expected it to be complete by the end of the week. Paul and Princeton Jackson take apart seating on the south wall. At right, one more pile of
