Saint Nicholas, in-person, will return to Culver for a community-wide, all-ages party on Saturday, Dec. 6 at 10:30 a.m.

Culver park board votes in paddleboard rentals, boating lessons at beach

November 24, 2014

The unusually wintry weather of the past several days might not seem conducive to thoughts of summer, boating, and the beach, but Culver's park board voted in a major new initiative for the community, in partnership with the Maxinkuckee Yacht Club and Sail22.

During a pre-board meeting work session on Nov. 10, the board heard from Ed Furry, vice-commodore of the Yacht Club and co-owner of Sail22, which operates a stand-up paddleboard business as well as organizing the annual Lake Max Challenge paddle boarding race in Culver. Furry and his wife Becky also operate Lakemaxlife.

Culver council hears of new EMS director, vice-director

November 22, 2014

Culver's EMS service is under new leadership, according to an announcement made at last week's (Nov. 11) town council meeting by Ruth Allman, who has been voted in as the new director of the service.
Allman, noting both former director Brandon Cooper and vice director Kimberly Irsa resigned from those positions (though Cooper continues to be a volunteer member of the EMS and Irsa a fulltime staff member), added that Julie Carmean has been appointed EMS vice director.

British novelist Lewis updates on Culver-set book

November 22, 2014

Best-selling British author Susan Lewis, who spent a week in Culver in September researching her next novel, has been in touch with The Culver Citizen to report that the book has been completed in a rough draft, an unusually rapid wring process for the author of dozens of popular novels across the pond.

Second bomb threat received at Culver Comm. High School

November 20, 2014

Culver town marshal Wayne Bean confirmed Thursday night that the second bomb threat in two days has been received noted at Culver Community High School.

As was the case Wednesday afternoon, a hand-written note in one of the boys' restrooms at the school was discovered Thursday after school, according to Bean, who contacted the Culver Citizen from the school building around 10:30 p.m., where police are searching the building and planning to bring a bomb-sniffing dog. School officials are also on the scene or in communication with police, Bean affirmed.

Culver Comm. High School evacuated after bomb threat

November 19, 2014

A bomb threat was identified at the Culver Community High School around 1 p.m. Wednesday, with students, faculty, and staff evacuated immediately thereafter.

Culver Community Schools superintendent Dr. Vicki McGuire told the Culver Citizen that a handwritten note on the stall in a boys' restroom said a bomb was in the building. A custodian confirmed the note had not been there the night before, so safety procedures were initiated and students evacuated.

Voc ed concerns may tip scales towards balanced calendar at Culver schools

November 15, 2014

The Culver Community Schools corporation still isn't sure whether it will adopt the much-discussed "balanced calendar" for its 2015-2016 school year, but if it does, the decision may well be most influenced by two factors: the importance of vocational education programs for many of its students, and the importance of the funding those programs facilitate, to its already-endangered budget.

That message actually came through after the bulk of a Nov. 3 public meeting regarding the balanced calendar, held at the Culver Comm. High School auditorium.

Recovered Culver love letters returned to owner -- 66 years later

November 15, 2014

The Culver United Methodist Women's thrift shop on Ohio Street receives a wide array of donations on its porch from week to week, but what awaited volunteers one day last month was a first: a box of handwritten love letters from 1948 and 1949 between Culver resident Gaynelle Winkler -- then still a Culver High School student -- and her beau, "Billy" Burman.

Thrift store volunteer Mary Kowatch, as puzzled as anyone as to why the letters had been donated, was also puzzled as to what story they told. What became of the couple? Did they marry? Are they still alive today?
