A longtime Lake Maxinkuckee resident is bringing something of a technological magic carpet ride to Culver this weekend.

Ben Smith (the IV, actually -- his grandfather first bought a house on the west shore over 50 years ago) is the owner of Florida-based Rocketman, which facilitates science fiction-worthy rides on a Jetlev jet pack as much as 30 feet above a given body of water. The device was invented by Raymond Lee, who was recently bought out by Echo Unlimited. Smith, who actually works out of Chicago, decided to become an operator and about four months ago, Rocketman was born.

Rescue tube donated to FD

July 19, 2012

ARGOS — Culver Young Farmers recently donated a Liberty Rescue Tube to the Argos Fire Department, after firefighters and some of the Young Farmers took a class on grain rescue sponsored by Purdue University in February.
The tube comes apart in four pieces, and can be wrapped around a person trapped in grain.
“A lot of us are farmers, and we need (the tube) in our community in case someone gets trapped,” said Culver Young Farmers advisor Mike Jones. “We decided Argos would be a central location for Marshall County.”
