There are few entities so quintisentially "Culver" -- and so cherished by generations -- as that small root beer stand near the beach, known since 2003 as The Original Root Beer Stand.
This summer marks the 55th anniversary of the business operating in Culver, at 824 Lake Shore Drive. Prior to that, then-owner Donald "Casey" Jones had operated it in Plymouth, but moved the building, foundation, and equipment by truck from Plymouth to Culver! At the time, it was an A&W root beer stand, as it would stay for some time.
PLYMOUTH â€” A total of 70 golfer converged on the Plymouth Country Club for a Marshall County Junior Golf Tour event Thursday.

ARGOS â€”Â As July rolls in, there is one thing you can count on in Indiana (besides more rain) â€” county fairs.
Marshall County is no different, offering fair goers an opportunity to overeat, attend livestock shows, view all of Marshall County 4-H membersâ€™ spectacular projects, and much more. Though the fair schedules are available for pick-up in the Extension Office, around Marshall County businesses, and online at www.ag.purdue.edu/counties/marshall, we thought we would give you a sneak peak on the fun that will be happening July 10 to 16 at the 4-H Fairgrounds in Argos.
PLYMOUTH â€” New flood plain maps for Plymouth are scheduled to go into effect November 16, according to Keith Hammond, building commissioner, at the city council meeting Monday. The current maps have been in use since 1977. According to city attorney Nelson Chipman, the ordinance to accept the new maps must be passed in order for Plymouth to receive national flood insurance.
â€śWe are going to have more areas that are considered flood plains than before,â€ť said Hammond later, adding that building on these areas comes with special regulations.
LAUSANNE, Switzerland â€” Morgan Uceny kept her win streak alive Thursday by placing first in the womenâ€™s 1500-meter run at an international track meet in Lausanne, Switzerland.
Uceny, a 2003 Plymouth High School graduate, clocked 4:05.52 in the Diamond League contest. Anna Mishchenko of the Ukraine, a 2008 Olympian, finished second in 4:06.00.
While many in Culver may have noticed extensive remodeling to the faĂ§ade of the new 115 Grill on east Jefferson Street downtown, thereâ€™s been a not-so-noticeable change in the business and its sister restaurant, the nearby Yacht Club, which recently opened on the second floor of the Culver Cove resort.
According to John Zehner, developer of both projects over the past several months, the Yacht Club will depart from the Cove and join its operation with 115 Grill (which is located, appropriately enough, at 115 East Jefferson Street), with both entities combining under the Yacht Club banner.
PLYMOUTH â€” The Bremen Firemenâ€™s Festival has been a traditional event in the area since its inception in 1950 that is anticipated by people of all ages.
Firefighters and other volunteers from the community work to ensure that the thousands of annual attendees have much to choose from: Food, music, games, rides, a parade, a waterball competition, fireworks, and more.
PLYMOUTH â€” As the nation prepares to celebrate another fourth of July Plymouth Mayor Mark Senter wants citizenâ€™s of Plymouth to remember the cityâ€™s fireworks ordinance and be mindful of safety.
â€śGenerally speaking we donâ€™t have a problem with people violating the ordinance,â€ť said Senter. â€śWe just feel itâ€™s good from time to time to remind everyone of the stipulations.â€ť
The cityâ€™s ordinance regarding fireworks states that:
-Consumer fireworks shall not be purchased by persons less than 18 years of age.
