Legislators laud groundbreaking effort to address future of Culver public schools

October 30, 2014

If there was one theme from Indiana Senator Randy Head (R- Logansport) and State Representative Tim Harman (R - Bremen) during their meeting with the Culver Community School board and school administrators last week, it's that the school took the right, and proactive, approach: facts, not vitriol, and direct dialog over mailings.

Water, sewer rate details explained during eventful Culver council meeting

October 28, 2014

During an eventful Oct. 14 meeting, Culver's town council took its first formal steps to ratify a significant hike in water and sewer rates, untangled the previous meeting's issues regarding new street lights and holiday lighting in Culver, made final approval of its 2015 budget, and debated details of a yard-stored pontoon boat with a local property owner.

Town of Culver receives $500k grant towards new water plant

October 28, 2014

Call it an early Christmas present for the town of Culver, or a farewell gift for just-departed town manager Dave Schoeff. The town received news late last week through the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA) that its bid for a grant for $500,000 to go toward the town’s water plant project, was successful.

The amount, says town council president Ginny Munroe, is estimated to be just shy of a third of the cost of the project.

Generosity of local photographer rewarded with ‘gift from the entire community’

October 25, 2014

Culver resident, Culver Community High School mom, and frequent photographer of local youth-related events Karen Lee wasn't expecting a request to take a quick couple of student photos one recent afternoon at the CCHS gymnasium. She also wasn't expecting the gift she received from an appreciative group of friends, parents, and other community members, who plotted the ruse to get her into the gym to make a special presentation.

CCHS, CCMS students discuss bullying during convocation

October 22, 2014

In a rare joint convocation of both Culver Comm. Middle and High School students, the high school auditorium last Wednesday was home to a special event focusing on the effects of bullying among children and teens.

Led by CCHS guidance counselor Brenda Sheldon and CCMS counselor Missy Trent, the event was part of a month-long endeavor to focus on the issue within the school corporation and, thanks to Trent's passionate endeavors in recent weeks, the entire community. It was also timed to coincide with National Bullying Prevention Week, Oct. 4 through 10.

Preservation effort offers incentives to homeowners, seeks to retain local culture

October 21, 2014

Preserving historic buildings around Culver and Lake Maxinkuckee isn't just relevant for its own sake -- it may also save property owners (or not-for-profits or municipalities) plenty of money. And it may also help save the culture and flavor of a Culver many fear is disappearing fast.

That was part of the message delivered at two recent events, and it may be welcome especially in areas where some are concerned that the historical and cultural legacy of the community is giving way to a trend of destroying the old and replacing it with massive "mini-mansions," as some have suggested.

New book on Vonnegut house restoration offers “vagabond’s”perspective

October 17, 2014

Local readers can add a new book to the pantheon dedicated to some aspect of Culver and Lake Maxinkuckee, and/or its history, though this one differs noticeably from most.

Culver Vonnegut legacy much deeper than famous author

October 17, 2014

Late author Kurt Vonnegut Jr. is commonly listed alongside the best-known literary and cultural figures influenced by the waters of Lake Maxinkuckee and its surrounding shores and culture, and he's likely the best-known to contemporary audiences (as opposed to other luminaries such as Booth Tarkington, James Whitcomb Riley, Lew Wallace, Meredith Nicholson, and Cole Porter).

Vonnegut cottage restoration exemplifies historic preservation possibilities

October 17, 2014

Much has changed on the shores of Lake Maxinkuckee since the heady days of the 19th century when the first cottages began appearing, especially on the east shore, which boasts many of the oldest such structures on the lake. One change is the demise of many of the most historic homes in the area (not to mention their replacement with often-massive, luxurious structures departing markedly from much of the historic architectural culture of the lake's storied past).
