Culver Academies museum, archive to expand to next building south

October 12, 2013

A long-vacant retail space in downtown Culver will have a new occupant later this fall, with the result that the legacy of one of the community's longest-lived institutions will be better preserved for generations to come in the process.

Culver hardware to close by end of October

October 11, 2013

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's hardware store will shut its doors at the end of October, with a 40 percent off sale intended to liquidate its existing merchandise kicking off last weekend.

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.

Behmer family celebrates more than 150 years as ‘household name,’ area farm family with award, reunion

October 4, 2013

By Jeff Kenney, Citizen editor
The Behmer family of Culver may have been recognized in August for the second time by the State of Indiana (the first was in 1977, when the Behmer farm was honored with a Hoosier Homestead Award; the present award is the Hoosier Homestead Award, for which farms must be owned by the same family for more than 100 consecutive years), but in the Culver area, the Behmer name has been well-known all along. In fact, for many residents of past generations it was literally a household name.

Mystic Hills may expand to offer overnight accommodations

October 4, 2013

CULVER - A local golfers mecca will test the waters for overnight stays.

Mystic Hills Golf Course in Culver cleared a first step on their way to a few cabins for those wishing to play the course and spend the night. The plan calls for five cabins to eventually be built but Mystic Hills Pro Dave Pugh told the Marshall County Plan Commission that the plan also calls for a very measured approach.

"I think we'd be foolish to plunge into full bore," said Pugh. "We'll probably do three cabins to see if there is a demand but not all five in one shot."

Culver comp plan: on track or in trouble? Council, public raise questions

October 4, 2013

The status of Culver's comprehensive plan has some business and community leaders worried, and they expressed their concerns at last week's meeting of Culver's town council.

The discussion arose during the citizen input portion of the Sept. 24 meeting, when Kevin Berger, who had been a major force in pushing for the comprehensive plan -- Culver's first in over a decade -- to take place, said he was "really disappointed in the way this is moving forward."

ISTEP numbers up, ADM enrollment numbers down at Culver Community

October 2, 2013

Preliminary ISTEP scores were released recently for local school districts, and Culver Community Schools has not only improved its score, but attained its highest score to date.

"The school corporation continues to have steady increase in our scores," commented Culver superintendent Brad Schuldt. "We moved up from 69.2 percent to 72.7 percent passing both Math and English Language Arts, which is the highest score we have had."

Schuldt added the corporation is continuing "to close the gap on the state average, which is now less than one percentage point higher than our score."

Local service clubs receive financial boost from success of Lake Max Triathlon

October 2, 2013

Three local service organizations -- the Culver Lions Club, Culver Kiwanis Club, and Culver Club of Culver -- each received $3,500 towards their charitable activities last Thursday during the Kiwanis Club's weekly meeting at the Culver Public Library.

The funds represented the proceeds from the Lake Max Triathlon, and were presented by Culver Academies wellness director Dana Neer, the chief organizer of the event.
