History of crime in Culver at July 12 AHS event

July 8, 2014

A look at the great crimes of Culver's past is on tap for Saturday, July 12, starting at 10 a.m. as part of the annual meeting of the Antiquarian and Historical Society of Culver.

The event will take place in the large meeting room of the Culver Public Library, 107 N. Main Street in downtown Culver.

Speaker Jeff Kenney will present “Crime, Punishment, and Culver,” which examines some of the more memorable crimes -- from bank robberies to murder mysteries, to just plain odd cases -- via an audio-visual Power Point presentation, following the business portion of the meeting.

TOWN COUNCIL DISCUSSED PLANNED ABATEMENT AT PUBLIC HEARING

The Culver manufacturing plant Elkay (also known as Medallion) plans to add some 100 local jobs over the next four years, as well as a significant capital investment of new machinery and equipment, with the assistance of a tax abatement from the town of Culver.

The Culver town council, at its June 24 meeting, voted to declare the Elkay property an economic revitalization area as part of its recently-completed tax abatement policy, following discussion of the Elkay plan.

27 year old drowning victim identified in July 4 incident at Culver beach

July 5, 2014

The victim of a 4th of July drowning at the public beach on Lake Maxinkuckee has been identified as Jose Cruz Lizcano, age 27.

Sonar technology was used by Indiana Conservation officers in the search Friday evening, after Lizcano's friends did not notice his absence for around four hours.

The drowning is the second in two years at the town beach in Culver, with last year's drowning of a 22-year old Plymouth man taking place just over a week from one year ago (that incident took place July 13, 2013).

Roush, Duckett, and Gleason also end their Academies’ careers

With the end of the 2013-14 came the close of the careers of four Culver Academies’ instructors – two in foreign language and a pair in leadership. Three of those retiring instructors earned emeritus status for more than 20 years of service to Culver. Together, the four totaled 108 years in Academies’ classrooms.

Lyman, Shepard, Urbin bid CES farewell

July 3, 2014

It has officially begun. The long awaited summer of 2014 has kicked off to a warm start, filling Culver with a newfound energy and a taste for excitement.

The school year has drawn to a close and the students have energetically taken to the beach, while their teachers have packed up and prepared for a much-needed break. However for some, this is the last time they will have to say goodbye to their classrooms and students as they begin various new chapters in their lives.

Park board establishes individual beach pass, updates on other matters

June 28, 2014

Individual -- as opposed to family -- beach passes are now available at Culver's town park, and at a lower rate than the seasonal passes issued for entire families. This after a recommendation from Culver park superintendent Marc Hayden and vote by the park board at its June 10 meeting.

Hayden told the board he had polled park patrons as to the notion of seasonal passes for a single individual, something the beach previously didn't offer, and was met with overwhelmingly positive feedback.

Culver Lions recognize Davis, Winters at anniversary gala

June 28, 2014

Culver's Lions Club held its annual anniversary meeting May 28, this year marking 71 years since the Culver club's founding. The event is also the traditional night when two members are feted with the "Lion of the Year" award and Melvin Jones Fellow.

The evening included a slideshow presentation recalling the club's past years, followed by the "Lion of the Year" award, now given in honor of late, longtime Culver Lion Larry K. Welsh. Recognized was Lion Ned Davis, who was introduced by the club's First Year Director, Dan Adams.

If these walls could talk: the beach lodge and park - part 1 of 2

June 28, 2014

By a happy coincidence, our ongoing series of 'virtual' walks through the historic places and spaces of Culver takes us this week to the town park and beach lodge -- a timely visit since the beach lodge itself has been the subject of much discussion by way of Culver's park board for several months now. The primary focus has been on the condition of -- and need to renovate -- the 1937 building, which happily appears poised to carry on for many more years (someone who surveyed it recently, as I recall, described it as being "built like a tank" or something to that effect).

Academies honors 143 past, present staff members at dedication of Distinguished Service Monument

June 25, 2014

A granite bench honoring 143 staff members of the Culver Academies with more than 25 years of service was dedicated May 1, with room for others who may reach that milestone in the years to come.

Each name on the Staff Distinguished Service Monument represents a full-time, non-faculty employee with 25 years or more of continuous service to Culver. The bench is located in the northwest corner of Manuel Green and complements the Faculty Distinguished Service Monument dedicated in May 2009 that honors teaching faculty with 25 or more years of service.
