Past clerk recalls Davis' contributions, changes in the office

January 15, 2012

Editor's note: In conjunction with our previous article on the retirement of Culver deputy clerk (for the past 30 years) Kay Davis, two clerk treasurers under whom she served in the past have contributed memories. First up is Bobbie Washburn Ruhnow, who worked with Davis for 12 years starting in 1983.
---------------------------

Kay and I worked together from November of 1983 to December of 1996. When I was elected Clerk-Treasurer in 1983, we had a great transitional period in November when Marizetta Kenney showed me the basics I needed to know to begin my tenure.

Kay Davis’ unique perspective encompasses 30 years of town government

January 12, 2012

When Kay Davis exited Culver's town hall the last workday of 2011, the door closed on 30 years of her service to the town of Culver as its deputy clerk, through five clerk treasurers and countless changes, major and minor, in the day-to-day operations which keep the town running. She also represents the only consistent witness to the inner world of town operations in a gradually changing Culver over three decades.

Ice fishing has long legacy on Lake Macinkuckee -- a look back

January 6, 2012

Whether of not you’re considering doing some ice fishing over the Jan. 27 weekend during the NAIFC national tournament on Lake Maxinkuckee (assuming there’s enough ice, of course!), you might be interested in a look back at some of the historic data regarding ice fishing on our lake, as well as some past methodology.

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.

Commentary: Cemetery flags should not be in trash
