Canoe-kayak ‘poker run’ to debut at Culver Lake Fest

June 16, 2012

Lake Maxinkuckee Environmental Council executive director Kathy Clark had an idea running through her mind for several years. While she enjoyed all the great events of Lake Fest weekend, something directly involving the lake seemed to be missing.

This year, with the help of environmental council members and Lake Maxinkuckee Association executive director Jane Grund, that idea has morphed into the first ever Canoe, Kayak & SUP Poker Run on Lake Maxinkuckee, to be held Friday, July 20 from 5 pm to 8 p.m.

Culver author celebrates kids & summer fun with ‘Ice Cream Hotel

June 15, 2012

For Jack Johnston, the idea was so simple it should have already been taken: kids love ice cream and they love to stay in hotels. So the Culver resident’s new children’s book, “Ice Cream Hotel,” created a match made in kid heaven.

Actually, the idea itself started with a kid: Johnston’s Culver Elementary School niece, Sarah Luttrell, had created an “ice cream hotel” drawing for art class, and Johnston was immediately struck by the idea. So, though he’d never had aspirations to pen a picture book, he went home and in two hours had the story on paper.

New Culver town manager looks forward to working with community

June 14, 2012

When new Culver town manager David Schoeff first visited Culver, it was one of several sites he drove to, to drop off his resume. It was also the place he immediately felt most drawn to.

“I don’t know if it was the atmosphere -- that you see the people and how they interact -- or just the feeling of the town, but it really felt homey,” says Schoeff, who will complete his second week on the job at the end of this week. “I thought, ‘This is where I’d like to be.’

Schoeff, native of Huntington, Indiana, says he still feels that way each time he pulls into Culver.

LMA, Akers put new patrol boat on Maxinkuckee waters

June 12, 2012

The Lake Maxinkuckee Association is expressing gratitude to Gary and Eyvonne Aker of the Culver Marina for their support of the LMA. The couple stepped up during the summer of 2011 when the Lake Patrol Boat’s internal gas tank ruptured and loaned the organization portable gas tanks to allow the patrol boat to operate and provide lake safety.
This year the Akers agreed to sell LMA its new patrol boat, motor, and hoist at the Marina’s cost. The fully equipped patrol boat is a Hydra-Sports 23 Bay Bolt and is on lake patrol this summer.

Grades help Culver's Krsek win Country Auto vehicle

June 12, 2012

Graduating Culver Comm. High School senior Joe Krsek (pictured here, second from left) says he didn't expect to win this gently used vehicle from County Auto Center in Plymouth, even though he had plenty of A's on his report card. Every A submitted earned seniors from Plymouth, Triton, Culver, Argos, and Bremen High Schools an entry in a drawing for a vehicle, according to Joe Martin, Jr. (far left) of County Auto, who noted about $10,000 was budgeted towards the car (whose taxes Country Auto also paid).
