C Scows ride the Maxinkuckee breeze

July 9, 2011

Always a thing of beauty to behold, a promenade of white sails drifted across the horizon of Lake Maxinkuckee over the June 18 weekend, as the Maxinkuckee Yacht Club hosted the 2011 C Scow Nationals here.

Author to Culver audience: Maxinkuckee was Vonnegut's 'peace'

July 8, 2011

Last Saturday’s annual meeting of the Antiquarian and Historical Society of Culver seemed fitting on a number of levels. First, it was held in the very cottage (formerly the Shirk-Robinson cottage, today the Bramfeld, and once the summertime “home” of composer Cole Porter as a youth) on whose porch the organization first formed, 20 years ago on the east shore of Lake Maxinkuckee, in the summer of 1991.

New addition to Culver's downtown offers 'younger, fashionable clothes'

July 7, 2011

They say when one door closes, another opens. In downtown Culver this week, it’s more a case of when one store closes, another opens.
As reported in a recent edition of this newspaper, The Collectors antique store and The Bear End teddy bear shop may be winding down their many years as fixtures in Culver’s downtown, but a new offering for Culver area shoppers has debuted in the form of Civvies, located at 114 South Main Street (the former site of The Bear End).

Root beer stand, a Culver legend, turns 55

July 2, 2011

There are few entities so quintisentially "Culver" -- and so cherished by generations -- as that small root beer stand near the beach, known since 2003 as The Original Root Beer Stand.
This summer marks the 55th anniversary of the business operating in Culver, at 824 Lake Shore Drive. Prior to that, then-owner Donald "Casey" Jones had operated it in Plymouth, but moved the building, foundation, and equipment by truck from Plymouth to Culver! At the time, it was an A&W root beer stand, as it would stay for some time.

Digitization of vintage Culver Citizens stirs debate at library board mtg

July 1, 2011

An at-times heated discussion over digitization of the Culver Citizen newspaper occupied a good deal of the Culver-Union Township Public Library board’s June 21 meeting.
The board, at its April meeting, had voted to approve a proposed agreement between the library and the Antiquarian and Historical Society of Culver allowing the Society to temporarily remove -- one volume at a time -- older issues of the Culver Citizen newspaper, which the library owns in bound books dating to the early 20th century, for digital scanning onto computer.
