LA County Sheriff McDonell Weighs In on Immigration Bill

LA County Sheriff McDonell Weighs In on Immigration Bill

Dear Editor, The Legislature’s passage of Senate Bill 54 (SB 54) and the anticipated signing by Governor Brown, marks the end of a long, and at times, contentious debate about immigration and the role of law enforcement in California. The legislation initially proposed, put to the test the trust that we in local policing must earn every day with the communities we serve. I strongly [...]

Dear Editor – Change Is In the Wind for Fox Hills Plaza

Dear Editor – Change Is In the Wind for Fox Hills Plaza

Dear Editor, The recent purchase of the Fox Hills Plaza property by HSH Management has many of us living in Fox Hills quite concerned for its future and ours because their proposed preliminary review (PPR) submitted to the city contains 775 housing units. Yes, you read that right, 775 housing units according to Michael Allen, Culver City’s Contract Planning Manager of the Culver City [...]

Dear Editor – Mayor Speaks Out for Dreamers

Dear Editor – Mayor Speaks Out for Dreamers

As the Mayor of Culver City, and a long time resident, I was angered by President Trump’s recent actions to end DACA for hundreds of thousands of people. Culver City welcomes everyone, no matter where they are from and whatever their background might be. Our City is known as the Heart of Screenland, where dreams can become reality and I want all people to know we welcome them with open arms. In [...]

Dear Editor – CCUSD and DACA

Dear Editor – CCUSD and DACA

Culver City Families, As educators, we are routinely faced with issues outside the classroom that impact our students’ safety, security and ability to function well in even the best learning environment. But perhaps nothing we have seen is more upsetting than yesterday’s announcement to end the Deferred Action of Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Culver City Unified School District [...]

Dear Editor – Make Culver City Safe

Dear Editor – Make Culver City Safe

Don't let this happen to Culver City! Let's not expose Culver City to possibly becoming another disaster like San Bruno or Porter Ranch. Inadequate regulations and private interests have too often gotten in the way of protecting people's rights. Fortunately we in Culver City will soon have the opportunity to protect what we hold dear. Culver City is soon coming out with a draft of [...]

Dear Editor – Mayor Cooper Stands Against Charlottesville Nazis

Dear Editor – Mayor Cooper Stands Against Charlottesville Nazis

I am profoundly sad and angry due to the events in Charlottesville this past weekend. I am thankful to live in a city that has no tolerance for the racist behavior exhibited by white supremacists and their nationalistic movement. I will always speak out against racism, be it in another state, another country or within the confines of our city. All of us stand united with Mayor Signer of [...]

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 [...]
