If these walls could talk: 620 Lake Shore Drive

January 2, 2014

-- CULVER HISTORY CORNER --

In the last installment of our ongoing series of "virtual" walks through the historic buildings of Culver, we began an effort to sort out the mix of buildings and entities which, through the years, occupied the space which is now home to the Lakehouse Grille, which today is numbered 620 Lake Shore Drive.

Culver park board eliminates park activities director position

December 31, 2013

-- Other changes implemented in heated Dec. 20 board meeting --

What could have been assumed to be a quiet, end-of-year park board meeting to tie up business, instead involved heated exchanges and included, among other actions, dissolving the park activities director position.

At the Dec. 20 special park board meeting, board member Rhonda Reinhold proposed discontinuing the position, held by Donna McKee since she was hired in January, 2013. Board members said they would investigate whether McKee's contract is up at the end of January, as board member Patty Stallings suggested.

Changes in job description leave park position future in debate

December 24, 2013

Tempers flared once again at last week's meeting of the Culver parks and recreation board, whose members reaffirmed that park superintendent Kelly Young would soon be vacating her apartment in the park's beach lodge (though they did amend the timing of the move), and adopted a new job description for the superintendent position which left at least one audience member asking if Young still has a job (she does, said board president Tammy Shaffer).

CULVER HISTORY CORNER
------------------------------
In our ongoing series of virtual 'walks' through the historic buildings of Culver, nowadays the next establishment (since we last visited the former Clara's restaurant just east of the movie theater) is the Lakehouse Grille. But it wasn't always so.

In fact, today's Lakehouse occupies space which once played home to three different simultaneous businesses, one of which remains in the form of the "bar" side of the Lakehouse, which most Culverites will remember as the old Lakeview Tavern.

Culver Chamber honors Lions, Peseks, Kenney at annual awards banquet

December 18, 2013

The night of the Culver Chamber of Commerce's annual awards banquet was unseasonably warm, an appropriate parallel to the festivities inside the Corndance Cafe on Main Street last Tuesday, where the Chamber lauded recipients of its Volunteer of the Year, Businessperson of the Year, and Lifetime Achievement Awards.

Culver school board formally hires new superintendent

November 29, 2013

In a contrast to last week's heated and debate-laden public hearing, the Culver Community School board voted unanimously at its Nov. 25 meeting to hire Dr. Vicki McGuire as its new superintendent of schools, replacing outgoing superintendent Brad Schuldt as of Jan. 1.

Between 20 and 30 audience members remained largely quiet during the meeting, as opposed to the Nov. 18 meeting, during which some Culver Comm. High School faculty members questioned the selection process and the choice not to promote current CCHS principal Albert Hanselman to the superintendent position.

SOME BEMOAN DECISION TO PASS OVER CURRENT PRINCIPAL FOR POSITION

---------------
The Culver Community School board met November 18 for its first public hearing regarding the contract for a new superintendent of schools, and while the name of the person chosen as the next superintendent of schools -- set to replace outgoing superintendent Brad Schuldt in January -- was not made public, tempers flared from a handful of attendees over the matter of who was not chosen.

Outdoor Culver Christmas decorating contest launches

November 22, 2013

The Culver Youth Community Organization (CYCO), a service organization comprised of students from Culver Community High School and the Culver Academies, is reviving a long-defunct Culver tradition this year in the form of a outdoor Christmas decorating contest for the Culver area.

Longtime Culver residents may recall the longtime annual decorating contest sponsored for years by the Culver Chamber of Commerce and Jaycees, respectively, though that contest ended more than two decades ago.
