Dear Editor – Ethical Advisory

Dear Editor – Ethical Advisory

Dear Editor: What do you know about the Culver City City Council’s Code of Ethics? What do you know about the so-called Ethics Advisory Committee? It is unlikely that you would know that either exists as no related information appears on the City’s website. Culver City has a hot line to report roadway pot holes and graffiti, but not ethics violations. It is a little more likely that you [...]

Dear Editor – Small World

Dear Editor – Small World

What a small (conflicted) world! For many years, Marty Hente (Hente) has been a very active member of the Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church (Church). In 2012, he served as President of the Church Council, while Ken Smith (Smith) served as a member of the Church Council. Smith is the person who, absent any proof or mitigation effort, claims that the Church needs the 10700 block of Farragut Drive [...]

Dear Editor – PRCS Classes Benefit Children

Dear Editor – PRCS Classes Benefit Children

Dear Editor, In regard to your article about Parks and Recreation; the Sing, Dance and Play class that both of my daughters took with Susy Porter were indispensable first steps in their musical lives. Both of my girls are extremely musical, verbal, and outgoing, all direct results of those formative classes which they both started before age 1. Susy is a treasure to our community and her [...]

Dear Editor – Perspective on Graduation, Rank and File

Dear Editor, To the Culver City School Administrators: Thank you for a memorable graduation ceremony. My family has looked forward to this day for 12 years. My son worked hard and earned the right to walk proudly across that stage to receive the diploma he earned. Thank you for loudly telling him and every one in a sports arena “Congratulations! You graduated . . . just not very [...]

Dear Editor – No Longer the Luxury of Neutrality

Dear Editor – No Longer the Luxury of Neutrality

The following is taken from an Op Ed piece about the Brock Turner rape. "Only in the creepy, crime coddling, victim manic universe of perennially depressed left wing misfits could a drunken slut emerge from a cesspool as a heroine." These are the words of Mr. Ari Noonan in an on line newspaper, cast as "The Voice of Culver City." Click bait? Nay, this is mind numbingly ugly hate [...]

Dear Editor – Anger and Animosity on Public Parking

Dear Editor – Anger and Animosity on Public Parking

At the March 14, 2016 City Council meeting, Weissman, Cooper, O’Leary and Clarke voted to conduct a “parking study” as to whether the 10700 block of Farragut Drive meets the current parking intrusion standards that justify permit-only parking. Farragut has been protected by permit-only-parking restrictions since 1982. The City Engineer and Traffic Engineer repeatedly declined requests by [...]
