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, [...]

Dear Editor – Unleashed Dog

Dear Editor – Unleashed Dog

Dear Editor, I have been a resident of Culver City for over forty years. Recently when I was attempting to walk through Coombs Park located between the 10700 and 10800 blocks of Farragut Drive and 10700 and 10800 blocks of Franklin Avenue I was harassed by an unleashed dog being allowed to play in the park by her owner. As the dog continued to harass me, the owner showed very little control [...]

Dear Editor – Voting on March 3

Dear Editor – Voting on March 3

I've noticed that Culver City residents tend to get grouchy when called upon to vote in March of the odd-numbered years (like, on this coming Tuesday, March 3, 2015). The only thing on our ballots is the L.A. Community College District Board of Trustees, and the election is administered by the City of Los Angeles, along with their primary elections for City Council (even-numbered districts) [...]

Dear Editor – Please Drive Carefully

Dear Editor – Please Drive Carefully

Dear Editor, I wanted to express my support of Lynn Akamine's recent letter regarding "near misses" at the CCUSD Elenda Street Complex. Our Culver City Crossing Guards do a great job under tough circumstances. I just wanted to point out that my recollection is that two children have been involved in pedestrian vs vehicle accidents on Farragut Drive, one student was involved in a pedestrian [...]

Dear Editor – A Valentine for Lovie

Dear Editor – A Valentine for Lovie

Here I am, writing down my Valentine’s Day list of relatives and friends—the usual suspects. But for some reason, at the top of my list is Lovie. For those of you who don’t know Lovie, she is a school crossing guard. She’s stationed at one of the busiest intersections in Culver City, where a preschool, an elementary school, middle school, and two high schools and an adult school [...]

As such, we feel compelled to share important information on the health risks associated with measles, and the measures that can be taken to prevent and treat [...]

Dear Editor – Reflecting on Student Behavior

Dear Editor – Reflecting on Student Behavior

Dear Editor, While Jody Reichel states: "I wouldn’t want the actions of a few students to cause people to think badly of our entire student body. We have so many amazing kids.  Want proof? Go to their concerts, their art exhibitions, their film screenings, their plays. Check out their sports teams, their robotics team and their garden club. Ask about their civic action projects, their [...]

Dear Editor – CCHS and Security Questions

Dear Editor – CCHS and Security Questions

Dear Editor, I’m responding to your coverage of events that occurred at Culver City High School in December 2013, and were reported to school officials and police in January 2014. Your report seems to be based on allegations made in a recent lawsuit brought against the Culver City Unified School District on behalf of a female former student. At a meeting on Friday, January 22 with CCUSD [...]
