Variety of options on table at park work session

March 28, 2014

After a hiatus of several weeks, the newly-enlarged (thanks to the addition of Union Township appointee Bob Osborn) Culver park board met for the first time last Wednesday, discussing a wide range of issues during a lively daytime work session and a lengthy evening board meeting.

During the work session, the two most prevalent matters were the future of various piers at the park, as well as repairs to, and future use of the beach lodge building. Discussion of both topics included plenty of audience suggestions and ideas.

Tip sends two Culver women to jail

March 28, 2014

Marshall County – Working on a tip March 21, officers from the Indiana State Police, Culver Police Department, and Marshall County Sheriff’s Department, proceeded to 624 Forest Place apartment 3A in Culver in an attempt to locate a stolen car and a female subject that was wanted on a warrant.

If these walls could talk: 640 Lake Shore Drive

March 26, 2014

One of the longest-lived contractors in Culver resides at the site of the next stop in our ongoing journey through the historic buildings of Culver. Bennett's Plumbing and Heating, of course, has long resided at 640 Lake Shore Drive -- at the corner of today's Lake Shore Drive and Liberty Street -- though it wasn't always so.

In fact, for around half its commercial life, the space today occupied by Bennett's was home to two separate store fronts.

Culver area’s Norris recalls WW2 service with WAC

March 24, 2014

There are just a handful of surviving World War II veterans in the Culver area today, and it might surprise some to learn that one is a woman.

Lida Norris, a 1936 graduate of Culver High School, didn't serve, as some assume when they learn of her status as veteran, as a Red Cross nurse or the like. Instead, she was one of over 150,000 American women who served in the Women's Army Corps (WAC) during the war, they being among the first women (besides nurses) to serve within the ranks of the United States Army (for the record, Culver's other WWII vet is Pearl Harbor survivor Jim DeWitt).

If these walls could talk: 634 Lake Shore Drive

March 20, 2014

It's been a while since we've had occasion to continue our ongoing series of virtual 'walks' through buildings of note from Culver's past to today, and this week we've stepped next door from our last stop, to 634 E. Lake Shore Drive, the home for just over a decade now of Culver Coffee Company. The building's location is notable, too, because CCC owner Dawn (Minas) Brockey's husband, Larry, operates his insurance company out of the storefront to the west -- (hopefully) a convenient arrangement for a couple!

Doggie care -- to go

March 12, 2014

CULVER'S JOHNSTON TURNS LOVE OF DOGS INTO AREA'S ONLY MOBILE GROOMING SERVICE

Anne Johnston of Culver describes herself as "addicted to dogs," and she's channeling that addiction into a new service she hopes will fill a need and make life easier for dog owners in the area...and, of course, help feed her addiction at the same time!

Council paves way for new park appointment, considers land annexation, visitor’s center funding

March 11, 2014

The several weeks' delay in filling the two vacancies on Culver's park board -- which has left the much-debated board short of a quorum for most of 2014 to date -- appears to be nearing an end, after an announcement and action taken at the Culver town council's Feb. 25 meeting.

Culver bids Lawson farewell

March 8, 2014

Latham Lawson, a respected and familiar face in Culver for more than four decades, bid the community farewell earlier this month as he prepared to move to the central Indiana of his upbringing.

Culver's Kiwanis Club lauded Lawson at its Feb. 6 luncheon, where he recalled his four years of service with the Navy in Japan during the Korean War, his graduation from Indiana State, where he met his wife, the late Rita (the two wed in 1958; she passed away in 2010).
