Culver City Crossroads

Just A Thought- Home and Away

Just A Thought- Home and Away

Summer is a festival unto itself. It’s essential to have time to  change gears and do things differently for a while. I’m lucky to be a part of a community that has so much going on; the wonderful concerts, the theater in the park, the storytelling at the library. Living here gives me such a sense of abundance. It’s never a question of “what can we do?” but only of “which would we [...]

More Than 100 Help Zeidman Kick Off Re-Election Campaign

More Than 100 Help Zeidman Kick Off Re-Election Campaign

Saturday, Culver City Board of Education President Scott Zeidman kicked off his re-election campaign with a party at the home of Mr. Culver City, Mike Cohen.  More than 100 local residents, including almost two dozen Culver City students, showed up to support Zeidman. “It’s truly amazing, I’m thrilled beyond belief.  Four years ago, when I ran the first time, my kick-off party was [...]

Small Business and State Contracts- An Editorial by Sen. Curren Price

Small Business and State Contracts- An Editorial by Sen. Curren Price

As California emerges from the recession, many businesses will begin revving up for the better more prosperous days ahead, as will many small, minority and women-owned firms. But the latter have something working for them in state government that needs to continue – a twenty-five percent small business contracting goal. That goal can be the key to ensuring that these small businesses ride [...]

Dear Editor- Safe Routes Not Taken

Dear Editor- Safe Routes Not Taken

Dear Editor, The decision not to apply for the "Safe Routes to School" grant in July by Culver City saddens me. In September of 2007, a local newspaper printed a photograph of double-parked vehicles and children crossing Elenda in front of Culver City High School. The caption was apparently tongue in cheek that a new school year brought the same traffic problems. Outside of sweeps by Culver [...]

Just a Thought- Crime Scene Part 2

Just a Thought- Crime Scene Part 2

I’ve survived a number of crimes. The idea that once the event is over, it can all be filed way doesn’t take human nature into account. I’m happy to identify as a survivor rather than a victim, but that’s learned behavior. Every few years it seems I get to learn it again. Everyone feels afraid sometimes. After the night of the helicopter, it has taken me a little a little longer, [...]

Just a Thought- Crime Scene

Just a Thought- Crime Scene

Do you ever get that feeling when you know someone is watching you, and you can‘t see anyone there? It’s fun to do the news, but it’s not always fun to be the news. Not since the morning I woke up to discover a broken water main had turned my street into a lake have I felt so odd about reporting on my own adventures. Since the alleged suspect (see, I’ve learned to speak police) has [...]

Just A Thought – Power/Play

Just A Thought – Power/Play

There was a tense moment a few months ago at a school board meeting, when the discussion of placing solar panels on the school grounds got very heated. The head of the sustainability committee, Todd, was trying not to show how exasperated he was with the assistant superintendent of business service, Ali, over the lack of progress. Several members of the school board (Pat, Kathy, Steve) added in [...]

Dear Editor – Union Bargaining Update

Dear Editor – Union Bargaining Update

Dear Editor, Your CCFT bargaining team (Casey Chabola, Amy Maldonado, Natalie Gualtieri, Claudette DuBois, David Mielke, and Kevin Cronin) met again with the CCUSD Management team on Thursday, May 19. CCUSD presented us with a proposal that calls for 7 unpaid furlough days for next year. This proposal is more costly to our bargaining unit than their first "pay cuts" proposal and thus is a [...]

Dear Editor- Car Show Gets Tickets

Dear Editor- Car Show Gets Tickets

The eighth time was the charm. On Saturday the 8th Annual Culver City Car Show took place in Downtown Culver City. Two Monday nights ago Culver City Council rewarded the Car Show “Event Operator” and Culver City’s Parking Enforcement for last year’s poor performance in fulfilling their obligation to help protect the Culver Downtown Neighborhood from intrusion. People looking for [...]

Dear Editor – Parking the Car Show

Dear Editor – Parking the Car Show

Dear Editor, It pays to have friends in high places. Executives of banks that were bailed out by the Federal Government gave themselves bonuses as a reward for their mismanagement. On Saturday the 8th Annual Culver City Car Show will take place in Downtown Culver City. Last Monday night Culver City Council rewarded the Car Show “Event Operator” and Culver City’s Parking Enforcement [...]
