Late September in Culver...in years past

September 28, 2014

-40 years ago: Sept. 26, 1974

The big news in Culver history this week is that the origins of Culver Cavalier football began (at least formally) at the Culver Community School board meeting of Sept. 17. It's hard to believe that football wasn't a part of Culver's local school system for much of the 20th century (Culver Military Academy began its first forays into football in the 19th century, and its team's exploits were often front page news in the local newspaper around the turn of the century), but it's true.

Culver’s Hippenhammers serve at home and around the world

September 21, 2014

Linda and Craighton Hippenhammer of Culver are perhaps best well known around the lake as being associated with the well-known, historic home -- "The House of a Thousand Candles" -- that they purchased on the east shore of Lake Maxinkuckee in June, 1992. But they’ve had much more on their minds than the history of one famous house.

Craighton, a professor of library technology at Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, Illinois, and Linda, a doctor of radiology, are both interested in utilizing their skills, talents and means to serve those in need around the world.

Culver Wine Fair 2014 slated for Saturday

September 18, 2014

What could be better than relaxing on the shores of Lake Maxinkuckee in Culver and sampling a variety of wine? It's a rhetorical question, of course, and one to which organizers of the third annual Culver Wine Fair believe they have the answer.

Rideon owner discusses space challenges facing local businesses

September 13, 2014

Chris Chambers' search for a new, larger home for his Rideon Bicycles business illustrates what he considers a "huge problem" for Culver -- and he's not alone.

"Unless you have a second job or are independently wealthy, you can't afford to rent a space in Culver, which has hurt the community," he says.

"We're a community that functions four months out of the year. Whitney (Alvis, owner of the new Rideon building) understands that, like Dawn (Minas, who rented the previous Rideon building to Chambers), and wants to see it succeed because it's good for the community."
