CCHS, CCMS students discuss bullying during convocation

October 22, 2014

In a rare joint convocation of both Culver Comm. Middle and High School students, the high school auditorium last Wednesday was home to a special event focusing on the effects of bullying among children and teens.

Led by CCHS guidance counselor Brenda Sheldon and CCMS counselor Missy Trent, the event was part of a month-long endeavor to focus on the issue within the school corporation and, thanks to Trent's passionate endeavors in recent weeks, the entire community. It was also timed to coincide with National Bullying Prevention Week, Oct. 4 through 10.

Preservation effort offers incentives to homeowners, seeks to retain local culture

October 21, 2014

Preserving historic buildings around Culver and Lake Maxinkuckee isn't just relevant for its own sake -- it may also save property owners (or not-for-profits or municipalities) plenty of money. And it may also help save the culture and flavor of a Culver many fear is disappearing fast.

That was part of the message delivered at two recent events, and it may be welcome especially in areas where some are concerned that the historical and cultural legacy of the community is giving way to a trend of destroying the old and replacing it with massive "mini-mansions," as some have suggested.

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).
