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.

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."

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 [...]

Dear Editor – PRCS Moves Towards ‘Living in Harmony’

I wanted to give those of you interested an update on the PRCS Commission’s Community Conversation that was tentatively titled “Living in Harmony”. As many are aware, the idea behind this Community Conversation event developed from the recent racial discourse that occurred at CCHS earlier this year. It was determined that we should not focus on that particular event, but on multiple social [...]

Dear Editor – Social Media Slur as Public Provocation

I ask all people of good conscience to join me in demanding that Karlo Silbiger publicly apologize to my good friend Jeannine Wisnosky Stehlin for the disturbing and hurtful remarks he addressed to her in a public forum, remarks which have caused her severe emotional anguish. Referring to Ms. Wisnosky Stehlin, Mr. Silbiger stated: "I'm sure that there were people like you in Topeka, Kansas [...]
