If these walls could talk: the beach lodge and park - part 1 of 2

June 28, 2014

By a happy coincidence, our ongoing series of 'virtual' walks through the historic places and spaces of Culver takes us this week to the town park and beach lodge -- a timely visit since the beach lodge itself has been the subject of much discussion by way of Culver's park board for several months now. The primary focus has been on the condition of -- and need to renovate -- the 1937 building, which happily appears poised to carry on for many more years (someone who surveyed it recently, as I recall, described it as being "built like a tank" or something to that effect).

Academies honors 143 past, present staff members at dedication of Distinguished Service Monument

June 25, 2014

A granite bench honoring 143 staff members of the Culver Academies with more than 25 years of service was dedicated May 1, with room for others who may reach that milestone in the years to come.

Each name on the Staff Distinguished Service Monument represents a full-time, non-faculty employee with 25 years or more of continuous service to Culver. The bench is located in the northwest corner of Manuel Green and complements the Faculty Distinguished Service Monument dedicated in May 2009 that honors teaching faculty with 25 or more years of service.

Tall buildings may be an expensive challenge for Culver fire dept.

June 24, 2014

Culver's fire department could have a very expensive problem on its hands, depending on results of an ISO (Insurance Service Organization) assessment of the department and its equipment.

This according to fire chief Terry Wakefield in reporting the matter to the Culver town council at its June 10 meeting.

At issue is the department's lack of aerial ladder equipment in light of the tall buildings in Culver and, according to Wakefield, especially on the campus of Culver Academies, where four-story buildings present an access challenge for firefighters.

Visitor Center, museum hold grand opening during Taste of Culver

June 24, 2014

Those visiting Culver (or locals curious to hear the latest or dig into the past) have a ‘one stop shop’ for the current and historical story of Culver following Saturday’s dedication and grand opening of The Culver and Lake Maxinkuckee Visitor Center and The Museum of Culver and Lake Maxinkuckee History, both located in adjacent spaces at the corner of Jefferson and Main Streets in the First Farmers Bank building.

Town council changes on the horizon with new filing, vacant seats

June 24, 2014

This fall will likely see several changes in the makeup of Culver's town council, with recent filings and plans on the part of current members to move on.

Dave Beggs, a Culver resident and owner of Main Street Manor in downtown Culver, recently filed as a Republican for a council position in this November's election.

Two council members' terms are up this fall, those of Lynn Overmyer and Sally Ricciardi.

Culver council, plan commission hold joint session on wind turbines

June 21, 2014

Whatever else emerged from last week's (June 10) joint work session between Culver's town council and plan commission, it was the value of two such decision-making bodies sitting down together to discuss debated issues, something most participants said they hoped would happen more often.

3rd annual Lake Max Challenge will be June 27 wkd

June 21, 2014

The third annual Lake Max Challenge Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) event will take place over the June 27 weekend. The event, which has become part of Culver's lively summer roster, is expected to draw nearly 100 racers (last year's participants numbered 85, up from debut year 2012's 53).

Stand Up Paddleboarding utilizes a board similar to a surf board, and paddle, as one more non-motorized, fitness-friendly means of enjoying the outdoors and area bodies of water.

Club members also heard an update from last year's recipients. The Kiwanian of the Year was also named.

Culver Summer Schools, Camps changes outlined

June 17, 2014

FOX, IN FIRST SUMMER AS DIRECTOR, UPDATES ON SCHEDULING, BUILDINGS, PROGRAMS, MORE

--

Culver Summer Schools and Camps are aiming for the right balance of moving forward with innovations which make sense, and sticking with the time-honored traditions that have helped define it. That's an effort which goes well beyond what is arguably the most visible change in the program this summer for many: the shift from the longstanding Sunday evening time slot for beloved Garrison parades, to Saturday evening.

It's been around 70 years since Culver's Jim McAllister flew 72 missions in a Spitfire fighter plane over Germany with the 107th Tactical Reconnaissance Squadron, and 30 years since he died in 1984, but later this month his wife, Harriet Provost, will finally see what she long felt was an injustice righted.
