Police K-9 demonstration a favorite at fair

July 8, 2011

ARGOS — Plymouth policeman John Wier and his K-9, Rex, have been working together for 4 1/2 years.

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.
