New book on Vonnegut house restoration offers “vagabond’s”perspective

October 17, 2014

Local readers can add a new book to the pantheon dedicated to some aspect of Culver and Lake Maxinkuckee, and/or its history, though this one differs noticeably from most.

Culver Vonnegut legacy much deeper than famous author

October 17, 2014

Late author Kurt Vonnegut Jr. is commonly listed alongside the best-known literary and cultural figures influenced by the waters of Lake Maxinkuckee and its surrounding shores and culture, and he's likely the best-known to contemporary audiences (as opposed to other luminaries such as Booth Tarkington, James Whitcomb Riley, Lew Wallace, Meredith Nicholson, and Cole Porter).

Vonnegut cottage restoration exemplifies historic preservation possibilities

October 17, 2014

Much has changed on the shores of Lake Maxinkuckee since the heady days of the 19th century when the first cottages began appearing, especially on the east shore, which boasts many of the oldest such structures on the lake. One change is the demise of many of the most historic homes in the area (not to mention their replacement with often-massive, luxurious structures departing markedly from much of the historic architectural culture of the lake's storied past).

Wesley Preschool begins year with new classes, staff, and location

October 11, 2014

The start of the school year this year at Wesley Preschool (located at the Wesley United Methodist Church) in Culver saw a great many changes -- most of them additions to its offerings to parents of young children in the area.

Besides the much-discussed addition of its daycare ministry (picked up where the same ministry left off at St. Mary of the Lake, just down the street), Wesley has not only continued its longtime preschool program (which is nearing its 50th year of existence), but expanded it to include three-year-old youngsters.

Town manager Schoeff announces resignation

October 11, 2014

The town of Culver will once again be on the hunt for a new town manager, following the announcement from present manager Dave Schoeff that he will resign effective Oct. 17.

Schoeff, who was hired in the spring of 2012, informed town council members via a letter last week explaining he has "an opportunity in another community.

"I have made a lot of friends here in Culver in the last 2+ years and have enjoyed working with you all," Schoeff wrote in the letter. "I have a lot of respect and deep feelings for you and our staff here."
