Culver community garden seeks helping hands to make a difference

May 4, 2011

This spring marks the third year for the Culver Community Garden located at the corner of Lewis and Slate Streets. A large variety of fresh vegetables are grown and donated to the Culver Community Food Bank to provide clients there with fresh produce during the growing season, according to Connie Richie, one of the volunteers facilitating the project. The excess produce, she adds, is sold at the local Farmer’s Market, with the proceeds given to the local food bank for the purchase of other needed items.

Gladie’s Deli headed east, will incorporate bakery offerings

May 2, 2011

A little over three years ago, Lee Willhite and family opened Gladie’s Deli in downtown Culver. Now the restaurant is moving closer to home for Willhite, but also hopefully closer to where traffic from Culverites and visitors flows: 415 Lake Shore Drive, just a block west of the town park and public beach (on the east end of the building perhaps best known as the former home of City Tavern/Diner), and literally right across the street from the Willhite family’s home.

Bar addition won’t change identity of Cafe Max, says Mahler

April 29, 2011

Cafe Max owner Susie Mahler wants to assure customers the recent addition of a bar at the longstanding Culver institution is no cause for alarm.
“No, it’s not getting changed into a ‘hoochie bar,’” she says with a smile. “There will be no pole dancers, male or female!”
She points out Cafe Max has served beer for about 10 years and had a three-way liquor license for a year and a half. She says the bar, which was installed over two days last week during which the restaurant was closed, is largely about increasing night dining to the establishment.

Happenings for the busy weekend of April 29 - May 1 in Culver

April 28, 2011

This weekend is a busy one in Culver, between town-wide yard sales and Culver Academies Parents' weekend. Here's a look at some highlights....

1812 Overture live

There will be a special performance of the 1812 Overture Friday at 12:30 p.m. in front of the Academies' Memorial Chapel, making use of the carillon, choir, orchestra, and more. This is a rare opportunity to hear this classical piece performed as it was intended.

New fitness site will match Culver’s unique makeup, says founder

April 27, 2011

It’s no secret Culver is a unique community with a diverse and often well-traveled population, and fitness trainer Shaina Lampton thinks it deserves a fitness facility to accommodate its character.
That’s why she’s opening Bottom Line Training Company at 232 South Main Street in Culver, in the Main Street Centre (though locally it’s often referred to simply as the Collins Building). The business will kick off with an open house May 7 from 4 to 7 p.m., with an official opening May 9.

Fate of Monterey Elementary is hot-button topic at meeting

April 26, 2011

There were plenty of questions, a number of suggestions, and ample emotions running high at Monday night's meeting of the Culver Community School board, but at the end of the night, few easy answers.

If these walls could talk: 120 S. Main (Culver's hardware store)

April 23, 2011

We continue our series of semi-regular journeys through Culver’s past as we look at the lives of historic buildings in the Culver area. For now, we’re strolling down Main Street’s east side in downtown Culver, making our way south.

Culver’s Corndance closing? Don’t believe the hype, says owner

April 23, 2011

Small towns may not actually play host to more rumors than larger cities, but at times small communities like Culver may seem to. One recent rumor has been troubling Corndance Cafe and Marmont Grille owner (and chef) George Pesek and his wife Tammy: that of the restaurant’s impending doom in Culver.
“We believe that rumor was started to hurt Corndance,” says George. “We never considered selling Corndance or our home.”
