If these walls could talk: the root beer stand (and neighbor)

CULVER HISTORY CORNER
-

A busy, newsy summer has kept us from continuing our "virtual" journey through the historic spaces and places of Culver, and to a large extent much of this week's content, while very timely in one sense -- since the families associated with Culver's long-lived root beer stand were this year's Lake Fest parade marshals -- in another sense is at least partly redundant, since we reviewed the history of the business in this year's Lake Fest insert around a month ago.

‘Little Savages’ will have local premiere at L’Max Film Fest Aug. 30

August 18, 2014

It's official: the Lake Maxinkuckee Film Festival - Gift of Warmth committee has announced that the feature film presentation at this year's event on Saturday, August 30, will be the exclusive premiere of "Little Savages," the Bear Fruit Films-produced feature movie shot entirely in Culver last summer.

The event, which takes place in the Culver town park, is free of charge with the only cost of admission being a gently worn or new article of warm clothing for school aged children, or a cash donation towards heating costs for area needy families.

Beggs, Ricciardi emerge as council convention winners

August 17, 2014

Candidates David Beggs and Sally Ricciardi emerged for the ballot this November at a Town of Culver Republican convention/caucus held at the Culver Public Library Aug. 7.

Following strictly the county-wide rules governing the process, doors were locked promptly at 7 p.m. and each of the five candidates vying for the two open Culver town council seats were given a five minute limit to address the approximately 80 people in attendance.

Culver-Titanic connection program to replace ‘Huckleberry Queen’ Saturday

August 13, 2014

Due to a family illness, presenter Anna Liechty of Plymouth will be unable to perform this Saturday as the “Huckleberry Queen” of Marshall County (that program is expected to be rescheduled for next summer).

Instead, Jeff Kenney will present a new program on the survivor of the sinking of the Titanic ship who settled in Culver, and the still-standing maple trees planting here in honor of a family who died on the ship, by the patriarch of that family. The remarkable story of their interweaving lives and those of Culver families will be told via an audiovisual program narrated by Kenney.

New Wesley pastor talks preschool, daycare, and his unusual path to faith

August 10, 2014

As many in Culver already know, Wesley United Methodist Church's new pastor, Rev. Tom Harzula, is in town, along with his wife Jenelle and two-year-old son, Tommy.

Pastor Harzula arrives here all the way from Dillsboro, Indiana, near Cincinnati, something he says is "an answered prayer," due to the proximity of Culver to his wife's family's businesses in the Knox and North Judson area (the family owns several franchise businesses).

Before the transfer, the two often only saw one another on weekends.

Award-winning novelist Crandall to visit Culver Aug. 25

Award-winning novelist Susan Crandall will make an appearance in Culver on Monday, Aug. 25 from 2 to 4 p.m. for a reception and book signing at Elizabeth's Garden - Flea Market Chic, 104 N. Plymouth Street.

The main focus of the event is on Crandall's latest novel, "Whistling Past the Graveyard," which had its paperback release on Feb. 4, and is the Target Book Club pick for February. Published in a cloth edition in 2013, it became a Southern Independent Bookseller Bestseller, an Okra Pick, an Indie Next Pick, and gained national critical attention.

CULVER — As reported in previous editions of The Culver Citizen, there are several new faces in administration at Culver Community Schools, but the new school year launching Aug. 12 will also bring a host of new teachers to the school's hallways, in addition to several changes within the ranks of ongoing faculty members.

Culver town beach closed following lab test results

August 8, 2014

Culver's town beach was closed to swimmers Friday due to higher-than-normal levels of e coli found after a lab test of the water sent in Thursday, according to park superintendent Marc Hayden.

Hayden reports that water sample tests taken from the Culver town beach today are expected to have results by noon tomorrow (Saturday), at which point it will be determined whether the beach will be open that day or not.

Culver park board discusses drowning incident, other matters

August 3, 2014

Discussing what he called a "very sad and tough situation," Culver park superintendent Marc Hayden said counselors from the Bowen Center in Plymouth visited beach staff following a drowning off the beach earlier this month.

Hayden -- addressing the Culver park board during its July 14 meeting -- noted Bowen Center assistance was made available via a recently-inaugurated employee assistance program for town employees, and that counselors would visit the park staff to discuss needs or questions -- especially on the part of younger staffers -- any staff might have following the incident.

Lake Max Triathlon set for Aug. 9

August 3, 2014

The third annual Lake Max Triathlon will launch Saturday, Aug. 9, and lead organizer Dana Neer -- also Wellness director at Culver Academies, from which the triathlon launches -- is excited as much as anything about the remarkable level of cross-community cooperation which has made the event such a success.

"The community has embraced it," he says of the USAT-certified triathlon, which includes a 400-meter swim, 12 miles of biking around the lake, and a 5K run.
