Lake Maxinkuckee Environmental Council executive director Kathy Clark had an idea running through her mind for several years. While she enjoyed all the great events of Lake Fest weekend, something directly involving the lake seemed to be missing.
This year, with the help of environmental council members and Lake Maxinkuckee Association executive director Jane Grund, that idea has morphed into the first ever Canoe, Kayak & SUP Poker Run on Lake Maxinkuckee, to be held Friday, July 20 from 5 pm to 8 p.m.
For Jack Johnston, the idea was so simple it should have already been taken: kids love ice cream and they love to stay in hotels. So the Culver residentâs new childrenâs book, âIce Cream Hotel,â created a match made in kid heaven.
Actually, the idea itself started with a kid: Johnstonâs Culver Elementary School niece, Sarah Luttrell, had created an âice cream hotelâ drawing for art class, and Johnston was immediately struck by the idea. So, though heâd never had aspirations to pen a picture book, he went home and in two hours had the story on paper.

Smith approached another shopper in the parking lot, Jamie Paxton, and asked him to call 911 because he believed the woman had shot herself.
