Town council: possible housing development, staff changes, budget, and more

October 17, 2013

Among a variety of topics brought to the fore during last week's Culver town council meeting was a report written by town manager Dave Schoeff and read in his absence at the meeting, that Schoeff, council president Sally Ricciardi, and Rick Tompos of the Culver Redevelopment Commission, met with a housing developer -- whom Shoeff's report did not name -- interested in developing a subdivision or homes in Culver.

Fall Fest haunted house culminates of years of collecting elaborate spooky props

October 15, 2013

When the 2013 Culver Fall Fest's haunted house at the beach lodge opens its doors, it will represent years of collecting elaborate and high-quality Halloween-themed props and decorations on the part of Mark Damore Sr. -- and a lot of set-up experience on the part of his son, Mark Jr.

Mark Sr., best known to Culverites as the owner of the Original Root Beer Stand, says he had to master plan to collect and set up the spooky paraphernalia. Instead, he says, "I love Halloween," and once he started buying a few items, he "just kept buying!"

For the first time in over 100 years, Culver area residents soon won't be able to drop into the local hardware store at 120 S. Main Street.

Culver museum - visitor’s center will open on ground floor of First Farmers Bank

October 11, 2013

Those visiting the Center for Culver History, the museum and research center of the Antiquarian and Historical Society of Culver located on the lower level of the Culver Public Library, on Oct. 12 will find it closed.

Lest that should sound like bad news, one might liken the attitude of the members of the museum steering committee to that of someone about to trade in their current vehicle for a better model with greatly enhanced features.

Stolen anchor was family, Lake Maxinkuckee heirloom

October 5, 2013

On Friday evening, Sept. 20, sometimes around 1:30 a.m., a large anchor was stolen from the front yard of the home of James and 'Bunny' Esposito, of 802 E. Lake Shore Drive in Culver.

The anchor, however, isn't just a decorative piece, but more akin to a family heirloom, says Bunny.
