If these walls could talk: 508 Lake Shore Drive

August 24, 2013

-- CULVER HISTORY CORNER --
In the midst of a busy summer, it's been a while since there's been space for a new installment in our ongoing series of 'virtual' walks through significant buildings in the Culver area. Having completed our visit to the downtown area, we're strolling to the western edge of the "uptown" (or is that "mid-town," given that some consider north Lake Shore Drive near S.R. 17 "uptown"?) Culver -- that is, the business district near the town beach which has been a hotbed of activity since the railroad came through in 1883-84.

Disney star Duty on faith, film, and fun in Culver

August 24, 2013

Kenton Duty, age 18, may be best known to audiences as "young Jacob" on the popular ABC television show, "Lost," or as European exchange student Gunther Hessenheffer on the Disney Channel comedy series, "Shake It Up!," but here in Culver he's been shooting scenes for the upcoming film, "Little Savages," where he plays one of the lead characters, Todd Savage. He's also played the role of friendly visiting ambassador to a number of local youngsters who have begged for an autograph or photo, and always been met with smiling agreement.
That's no coincidence.

Council ponders: landscaping or eyesore?

August 24, 2013

One man's landscaping is another man's eyesore -- or such was apparently the case at last Tuesday's (Aug. 13) meeting of Culver's town council, where debate ensued as to whether unmowed grass in the front yard of a College Avenue residence could be considered "native landscaping," as the property owner has claimed.

While some in the audience and on the council debated whether the growth -- three foot high and more in some sections -- is merely weeds or has a legitimate claim as native landscaping, town manager Dave Schoeff sought the advice of town attorney Jim Clevenger.

Culver’s Girard latest in long local literary legacy with new novel

August 17, 2013

It's no secret that Culver and Lake Maxinkuckee have a surprisingly robust literary history which extends right up to the present, as authors seem continually inspired to dive into their imaginations in search of fictional vision.
