Dear Editor – Being Heard Over the Plane Noise

Dear Editor – Being Heard Over the Plane Noise

Dear Editor, I have noticed with increasing frequency unfortunately more jets flying over Culver City. I have spoken loudly to the LA City Council and the director of LAWA (Los Angeles World Airport) but I need your help, you locals in Culver City. If you are hearing and seeing more of these jets that are making more noise and causing more air pollution, please call: LAX Noise Complaint phone [...]

Dear Editor – Stepping Into Safety

Dear Editor – Stepping Into Safety

I have been a resident of Culver City for over thirty years. This morning (Wednesday, August 20th) around 9:30 I was at the intersection of Kinston and Jefferson. I had just pushed the pedestrian crosswalk button and was awaiting my turn to cross the street. The white pedestrian icon activated notifying me that it was my turn to cross the street. I looked both ways and then stepped off the curb. [...]

Dear Editor – Culver City Smoking Ban

Dear Editor – Culver City Smoking Ban

Dear Editor - This whole “ban smoking in multi-family housing” is ridiculous. First, it is not up to the City to regulate personal habits that are legal. If a property owner says “I am going to allow smoking in my building” – disclosure, in writing, to new tenants is all there needs to be for them to make an informed decision. For condominium homeowners, they already have a governing [...]

Dear Editor – Offensive Advertising

Dear Editor – Offensive Advertising

Dear Editor: I have been a Culver City resident for 20+ years and have been active in the community as a parent, teaching artist, and citizen. I know many people who have worked tirelessly by volunteering in various capacities to keep our city one for which we can be proud. In spite of the efforts of many to keep our home a nice place to live, the recent ad blitz in Culver City for the film [...]

Dear Editor – Peace Starts Here, with Art

‎About 4 years ago we launched The Peace Project and began working in Sierra Leone, Africa. About 7 months ago, I posted that I wanted to go to the Philippines -- now The Peace Project is on the ground preparing to build the first community of 40 houses and a community center. A total of 200 houses are planned. A few years ago, Mark Damon Espinoza told me he had a dream that he ran into me [...]

Dear Editor- Derek for Secretary of State

Dear Editor- Derek for Secretary of State

Here’s something to be excited about in the June 3 primary election — Derek Cressman is running for California Secretary of State. I worked with Derek for several years and know him well. He was the director of the democracy program at U.S. PIRG when I was working for the organization’s research unit. I can think of nobody better for the job. Rather than spending years raising [...]

Dear Editor – Measure CC is About Public Health and Safety

Dear Editor: On June 3, 2014 we all have the opportunity to make a positive difference in Culver City by voting Yes on Measure CC, the school facilities bond measure that will be on the June 3rd ballot. Culver City will celebrate its Centennial birthday in 2017. From the beginning our schools have been great and a selling point for potential new residents. Our schools are a major reason we [...]

Dear Editor – Pastor Promotes Measure CC

Dear Editor – Pastor Promotes Measure CC

Hello, I am writing in support of Measure CC. I am the mother of two children in Culver City schools, Linwood E. Howe Elementary and Culver City Middle School. A quality education is one of the building blocks of not just a good society, but a great one. CCUSD has done a brilliant job of weathering the budget storms of the past decade; they have prioritized teacher salaries and quality programs [...]
