No, you don't have to light candles (unless you want to) and you can still listen to music or watch a movie. Just turn off every eletrical thing in your house or apartment [...]

Ruth’s Truths – Ruth Morris

Tucked in the Folds of the Iron Curtain Budapest has been on my destination hit list for a long, long time. I stayed pretty close to home last spring break for the first time in over ten years, so when I saw I had enough miles for a ticket to Europe, I decided to knock off two more of my top ten most wanted cities this year: Budapest and Prague. My travel companion agreed. So I booked [...]

It Takes a City to Make a Village – T.S. Owen

It Takes a City to Make a Village – T.S. Owen

Culver City was barely one square mile when it became the redundantly quaint City of Culver City in 1917. Nearly 100 years later, it is five times that size and as far from square as is possible. After some 40 strange expansions, gerrymandering and predatory annexations, the city is five times as big, but squeezes those acres into acute angles and seemingly random twists and turns, as you can see [...]

Looking Up – Bob Eklund

This spring, our Sun and Moon happen to be so aligned that first the Moon’s shadow falls on the Earth and then, two weeks later, the Earth’s shadow falls on the Moon. The result: sky-watchers are being treated to both a solar and a lunar eclipse. The total solar eclipse, which occurred on March 20 (by coincidence, that date was also the spring equinox), was visible along a path of totality [...]

Dear Editor – ‘Seymour’ Film Gets Rave from CCSO

Dear Editor – ‘Seymour’ Film Gets Rave from CCSO

Dear Editor, Last night I watched the movie "Seymour: An Introduction." There are few movies on Classical Music which are true to the art, and its craft. This is one. Seymour Bernstein is a pianist who in the midst of successful and highly critically acclaimed performing career retired in his fifties, and then sought a life of solitude in his one-room Manhattan apartment to study music, [...]

Yo, Jethro! Shelly Blaisdell

Yo, Jethro! Shelly Blaisdell

Namaste my Dear Readers! This will be my last column for a while, as I am about to go to India! I will be filing reports from the field occasionally, because in India the calendar is redrawn every time a cow coughs up a water lily. Why would a small black cat go to India, you may ask? Have you seen the way animals live there? Rats run entire temples! They binge watch Game of Thrones all day [...]

Council Notes – It’s a RAP – Housing Programs Continue with Council Approval

Council Notes – It’s a RAP – Housing Programs Continue with Council Approval

"This is not a theoretical exercise. These are people's homes, and these are people's lives." Mayor Meghan Sahli-Wells made the motion at the end of several hours of discussion to keep the current housing programs intact including the Rent Assistance Program, funding for the homeless and aid to Upward Bond House. The motion passed with the entire council voting aye. The Rotunda Room at the [...]
