2014 Maple Syrup Festival: Origins

April 23, 2014

WAKARUSA --
On an ordinary day back in 1968, Eldon Martin was on the receiving end of a seemingly routine phone call that would change the course of Wakarusa history forever.
Martin had been contacted by a representative from the Elkhart City Chamber of Commerce. The caller wanted to know if Martin would be willing to share information about the Wakarusa Maple Syrup Festival, so the details could be included in brochures that the chamber was printing for the 1969 calendar of local happenings.

Culver water rate increase may be only alternative to plant failure

April 23, 2014

If a potential $12 per month jump on the water bills of Culver residents sounds like bad news, it would be hard to argue in favor of the alternative: a non-functional water system.

Those were the options presented as likely to Culver's town council at its April 8 meeting, when a public hearing took place regarding a possible loan through the state revolving fund to help pay for the $1.5 million replacement of the town's ageing water plant, which goes back some 55 years and is on its last legs, according to engineers and town management.
