If these walls could talk: 115 South Main

August 14, 2011

We continue our series of semi-regular journeys through Culver’s past as we look at the lives of historic buildings in the Culver area. For now, we’re strolling up Main Street’s west side in downtown Culver, making our way north.
This week, we’re stopping in at 115 South Main Street, the southern portion of Susie Mahler’s Cafe Max (since 2000, anyway), and the main entrance to the restaurant.
Of course, as with many businesses in Culver’s downtown, where the addition or removal of a wall or door made one storefront into two, or two into one, it wasn’t always so.

Culver park board votes to oppose wind turbine placement

Culver's Parks and Recreations board voted to formally express its opposition to placement of more than 60 45-story wind turbines in an area including land affecting the Culver-Lake Maxinkuckee community, at the board's monthly meeting August 3.

Board member Patty Stallings said the company proposing to place the turbines, Next Era Energy of Florida, has visited Culver's Lions and Kiwanis Clubs and Lake Maxinkuckee Environmental Council.
