Lake increases summer security

June 22, 2011

Sheriff Tom Chamberlin and representatives from the Lake Maxinkuckee Association presented a plan to increase patrol hours on the lake this summer during the Marshall County Commissioners meeting Monday. Their objective is to have law enforcement patrolling the lake on boats for 800 hours during the summer, which Chamberlin said is considered to be June 1-Sept. 15.
“In past summers, the former lake patrol has patrolled 1,000 hours, but sometimes it was only 500 because of lack of staff or inclement weather,” said Chamberlin.

National regatta returns to Lake Max, brings fun for public, participants alike

June 17, 2011

If Lake Maxinkuckee looks especially picturesque this weekend due to a swath of graceful sails on its waters, that's because Culver is hosting the 2011 C Scow National Championship Regatta from June 17 through 19. And one of the people behind the event, Culver's own Ed Furry, says that's good news for the whole community -- and he hopes the whole community will take part in the festivities.
"We'll probably have 60 or 70 boats, each with a two or three-person crew," he says. "We'll be bringing a few hundred people to Culver to support the restaurants and businesses."

June 13, 2011

Mary Beth Harness’ retirement may have taken place in much the same manner as her more than 35 years of teaching art at Culver Community High School: quietly, but with significant and lasting impact.
