Salary allotment for deputy clerk questioned at Culver council mtg

January 6, 2012

Culver's final town council meeting of 2011 passed rather briefly and quietly, all in all, even as council member Ralph Winters and outgoing town clerk Casey Howard marked their final turns.

The council passed, on second and third reading, its salary ordinance, following a question raised by council member Lynn Overmyer concerning the deputy clerk position. During her pre-election campaign this past fall, incoming clerk (then-candidate) Karen Heim discussed the deputy clerk position, suggesting replacement of retiring deputy Kay Davis could be delayed or the position streamlined.

Winter carnival slated to accompany national-level ice fishing tourney here

January 5, 2012

While many have enjoyed this unseasonably warm -- and relatively snowless -- winter, some area groups will be forgiven if their fingers are crossed for temperatures to drop throughout the month of January.

That's because Culver and Lake Maxinkuckee will play host to a national-scale ice fishing tournament the weekend of Jan. 27 through 29, expected to bring more than 100 teams, and plenty of winter fun for those not interested in ice fishing as well, including a kids' snowman building contest and ice skating camp.
