Dear Editor – More Red Light Cameras Coming to Culver City?

Dear Editor – More Red Light Cameras Coming to Culver City?

Dear Editor, I wrote to you in December about the then-proposed expansion of the Culver City red light camera program. The new cameras have been in operation since April, and I've now received official ticket counts up to June 30. Based upon those counts my estimate is that by the end of 2017 the City will have issued 45,757 tickets, compared to 21,530 in 2014 and 23,303 in 2015. At [...]

Just a Thought – Why Don’t We Listen? (Why Can’t We Hear?)

Just a Thought – Why Don’t We Listen? (Why Can’t We Hear?)

It's a scene I've witnessed so many times I've lost count. It's a scene I've participated in so many times I'm humbled. I'm still trying to understand; why don't we listen? At council meetings, at school board meetings, in the most everyday conversation - I hear people responding in ways that betray the fact that they were not listening. She says this and he responds to that. That was not [...]

Dear Editor – Concern for City Oil Drilling Regulations

Dear Editor – Concern for City Oil Drilling Regulations

Dear Editor: As many residents learned last week, the new operator of the Inglewood Oil Field, Sentinel Peak Resources, dropped its request that Culver City delay its release of the draft Oil Drilling Regulations, Specific Plan and Environmental Impact Report. Further, SPR declared that they would no longer negotiate during meetings that included our city staff, consultants and the [...]

Dear Editor – CulverCityBus Deserves Their Award

Dear Editor – CulverCityBus Deserves Their Award

Dear Editor, Congratulations to Culver City Bus. As a regular rider of Culver City buses since 1992, I can confirm that overall the service Culver City Bus has been outstanding. The buses are maintained and clean. The drivers courteous, and professional. If there is a problem or difficulty with buses, and there is no perfect transit company on the planet, Culver City Bus heard my opinions, and [...]

Dear Editor – Applause for CCFD

Dear Editor – Applause for CCFD

Dear Editor: On Saturday, July 8, 2017 my son and I planned to drive to Solvang, California for 24 hours of relaxation. As we reached Santa Barbara, intending to drive to Solvang via Highway 154, we were stopped because a fire had erupted in the area of Lake Cachuma. When we finally reached Solvang, we contacted the Santa Barbara authorities in order to help with evacuations. On Sunday, the [...]

Dear Editor – Oil Production & Health Risks

Dear Editor – Oil Production & Health Risks

Dear Editor, On July 11th Culver City is having a special Council meeting to hear from us whether the City should keep honoring a request from the new owners of the oil field under our homes. To me the oil producers' request boils down to their wanting to have a hand in writing Culver City's oil and gas regulations. It seems like the proverbial fox wanting to make up the rules on how to [...]

Dear Editor – Oil, But At What Cost?

Dear Editor – Oil, But At What Cost?

Dear Editor, The Inglewood Oil Field is the largest urban oil field in the contiguous United States. Roughly 10% of the field resides here in Culver City but that 10% is of arguable value to the field’s new owners Sentinel Peak Resources. If the show or lawyerly force coupled with worker testimony at the City Council’s community meeting on the issue in April is any indication the value of [...]

Dear Editor – Meeting on Oil Field Coming Up in July

Dear Editor – Meeting on Oil Field  Coming Up in July

Dear Editor: I urge all Culver City residents to attend the “special meeting” of the City Council Tuesday, July 11, 2017 at 7 p.m. (Culver Boulevard at Duquesne). Why attend? Because your health and safety are on the line. The activities conducted in the Inglewood Oil Fields are potentially dangerous to us all. The City Council voted 3-2 in mid-April to delay releasing what is called [...]

Dear Editor – Stand Together Against Neighborhood Drilling

Dear Editor – Stand Together Against Neighborhood Drilling

Dear Editor, Perhaps you’ve heard of Stand Together Against Neighborhood Drilling – Los Angeles (STAND-LA). This group works to protect the community health and safety of Angelinos who live near oil and gas drilling sites. Proximity to oil and gas operations can compromise community health; STAND-LA seeks an ordinance to establish 2500 foot set backs separating oil and gas operations from [...]

Dear Editor – Our Dangerous Oil Field

Dear Editor – Our Dangerous Oil Field

Dear Editor, The last thing most of us want to think about is the dangers we are facing. And yet here in Culver City we are facing dangers, and we must think about them. Otherwise, how can we act to protect ourselves? We’ve heard of these dangers before. They’re just as real and just as extreme today as they were when we first considered them. In no particular order they are: The [...]
