Dear Editor – To the Point

Dear Editor – To the Point

Re: "We won." Well, Les, if losing on your issue and slandering popular elected officials and hurting Grace Church makes you a winner, then zay gezunt! Michael Gotz

Dear Editor – Claiming Victory

Dear Editor –  Claiming Victory

Dear Editor: We won. We exposed the ineptitude, incompetence and lack of ethics of the Culver City City Council. We exposed that, in Culver City, influence peddling trumps reason and justice. Ken Smith, a prominent member of Grace Church, has given new meaning to the phrase, “Ask and You Shall Receive.” We exposed Smith’s business, social and political relationships with former City [...]

Dear Editor – Code of Ethics

Dear Editor – Code of Ethics

Dear Editor: At the September 12, 2016 City Council meeting, will the City Council express shock, like Captain Louis Renault in Casablanca when he discovered that there was gambling in the backroom? It could. After all, the City Council members are learning from us that: (1) in 1996, the City adopted a Code of Ethics; (2) a copy of the Code of Ethics is not posted on the City’s award-winning [...]

Dear Editor – Farragut Parking Study ‘Success’

Dear Editor – Farragut Parking Study ‘Success’

Dear Editor: The parking study has been completed for the streets surrounding Grace Lutheran Church, and is now available to the public. As you may know, I am a long time member of the Grace Lutheran Church, and a leading advocate for having this study done due to the overly restrictive permit parking that has existed on 10700 Block of Farragut Dr. for over 30 years... The study will be [...]

Dear Editor – Farragut Parking Study ‘Fail’

Dear Editor – Farragut Parking Study ‘Fail’

Dear Editor: The long-awaited “parking study” arrived with a thud. A Culver City 6th grader could readily see the flaws in the KOA Corporation’s Technical Memorandum. For example, KOA: (1) failed to disclose its management’s long-term personal relationship with a senior member of the Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church (Church); (2) made no effort to determine whether the Farragut [...]

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 – Moving the Polystyrene Ban Forward

Dear Editor – Moving the Polystyrene Ban Forward

Dear Editor, A proposal recommending a ban on single-use polystyrene in Culver City was presented to City Council for discussion on August 8th by Ballona Creek Renaissance (BCR) as part one of Agenda Item A-1. Part two of this agenda item suggested “direction to City Manager as Deemed Appropriate.” Staff report included a 26-frame Power Point from the City of Santa Monica Presentation to [...]

Dear Editor – Culver City Should Join In Banning Polystyrene

Dear Editor – Culver City Should Join In Banning Polystyrene

Dear Editor , At its 7pm, Monday, August 8th meeting, the Culver City Council will be considering proposal to ban single-use polystyrene food containers and related items in the city (Agenda Item A-1). We'd welcome your support! Here's the link to the council meeting agenda, which includes links to BCR's proposal: www.culvercity.org/Home/ShowDocument?id=3585. For the city's staff [...]

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 [...]
