The L;Max "Gift of Warmth" Film Festival returns this weekend, combining Friday evening's annual fund-raising event with Saturday's evening of activities, including a movie on the big screen in the park.
It's easy to forget that today's Corndance Cafe -- then the Corner Tavern -- at the corner of Main and Madison Streets was once notably smaller than it is today, and in fact had been for much of the 20th century (the business operated as a tavern since at least the 1930s).
The ESPN TV network's College GameDay will broadcast live Tuesday, Aug. 11, from Culver Academies' Oliver Field, according to a report posted at http://news.culver.org, the Accademies' news-blog, by Jan Garrison of the Academies.
A professional-sized fireworks show near the south shore of Lake Maxinkuckee at Culver very early Sunday left the community a-buzz with reaction to the loud explosions between midnight and 1 a.m. early, and many residents' responses were not positive.
The signs are already appearing along the roadway for this Saturday morning's annual Lake Max Triathlon, which is expected to bring more than 400 participants, many of whom will be staying the weekend and in some cases, the entire week, in Culver.
In honor of the start of classes at Culver Community Schools this week, our Throw Back Thursday feature is a picture from 1939 of the old Maxinkuckee schoolhouse near the corner of 18B and Queen Roads.
