‘Evil Czech’ brings first micro-brewery to Culver

July 25, 2012

Not only is the Evil Czech Brewery aimed at anything but a literal interpretation of its unusual name, once customers get a look at the elaborate micro-brewing operation just installed at the former Marmont Grille at Main and Davis Streets, they're likely to agree the brewery is facilitating something momentous in Culver.

‘Rocketman’ brings jet packs to Lake Max this wkd

July 20, 2012

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.

Culver Lake Fest fireworks back on

July 20, 2012

The Culver Lake Fest committee announced Thursday that, due to the more than one inch of rain which fell Wednesday night and Thursday morning, Saturday night's annual Lake Fest fireworks are back on the schedule, slated to begin around 10 p.m.

The committee had announced Monday the fireworks were likely to be canceled pending a "substantial" amount of rainfall in the area, at the suggestion of Culver's fire chief.

Lake Fest fireworks likely postponed

July 18, 2012

The Lake Fest committee has announced, with regrets, that unless a substantial amount of rain fally by Saturday, the Culver Lake Fest fireworks may be postponed to a later date due to the drought. The decision is a precautionary one made by the Culver fire chief and department, according to Jean E. Overmyer of the festival committee, who notes that a rain date will be scheduled based on the weather conditions. “It will still be a great Lake Fest!” she adds.

If these walls could talk: 109 N. Main St.

July 14, 2012

109 N. Main Street, the subject of this week's "virtual" (and historical) journey through downtown Culver, doesn't actually exist.

Not any more, at least.

Generations of past Culverites wouldn't recognize the southwest corner of Main and Washington Streets as it appears today, which is to say -- as discussed in our last "Walls" installment -- the annex to the Culver-Union Twp. Public Library's 1915 Carnegie building at 107 N. Main.

Culver firefighters extinguish Peru Court house fire

July 14, 2012

No one was injured in a Friday evening fire at the Hadley home at 604 Peru Court in Culver, where outdoor grilling appears to have been the cause of the primarily exterior blaze. Firefighters responded in full force to the fire siren to the house, from which some residents as far away as the Culver beach said they saw flames shooting into the air.

Maxinkuckee sun sets on Ball family's legacy here

July 13, 2012

WELL KNOWN INDIANA FAMILY'S LOCAL ROOTS RUN 60 YEARS DEEP

Since 1944, seeing “July” on the calendar meant the members of one branch of the Ball family of Indianapolis (think Ball canning jars and Ball State University) are gathered near Aubbeenaubbee Creek at the historic house once home to the Halcyon Boat House. This July is no exception, but there’s a bittersweet tinge to the breeze blowing off Lake Maxinkuckee here at 1746, as this is likely the family’s last July here.

Community rallies around Culver man, critical after accident
