Dear Editor – Schools and Safety

Dear Editor – Schools and Safety

Dear CCUSD Community, I am writing with an important message regarding the recently filed lawsuit against CCUSD that has been noted throughout various media outlets. Let me open my comments with this heartfelt declaration -student safety is our top priority. Any action that could physically or emotionally harm a student is unacceptable and will not be tolerated in CCUSD. As you know, the [...]

Dear Editor – What Culver City Voters Need to Know About the March 3 Election

. . besides the fact that you're going to be expected to vote for LACCD trustees you've probably never heard of unless you've visited SmartVoter.org.

The person with the most votes for each seat will be declared the winner. The [...]

Dear Editor – Big Show Big Success

Dear Editor – Big Show Big Success

I just wanted to send a huge note of congratulations & some big kudos to everyone involved in making the Big Show a big success. I loved everything I saw and it seemed to go very smoothly. I think it was a lovely way to show off the Frost and all of its facets (I had no idea how many little pockets of space there are in the place). Please pass along compliments to your students and kids. [...]

Dear Editor – Grace Lutheran Church and the Parking Problem

Dear Editor – Grace Lutheran Church and the Parking Problem

Dear Editor, I read Michael Gotz's recent letter to Culver City News with growing frustration. How can it seem reasonable for anyone to say because they own Culver City property at 4227 Overland Avenue, 4279 Le Bourget Avenue and 10714 Franklin Avenue they have the right to demand the use of the 10700 residential block of Farragut Drive as a parking lot?!?! Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church [...]

Dear Editor – No Billboards

Dear Editor – No Billboards

On June 25, 2014, the City Council considered a proposal from the Carlyle Group regarding the creation of a Freeway-Oriented Sign District along the 405 Freeway generally located along commercially zoned property between the City’s northern and southern City boundaries (the “Initial Proposal”). I was then, and am now shocked and appalled that the Council, under any circumstances, would even [...]

Dear Editor – Correction on “Upward Bound” Timeline

Dear Editor, Regarding the Upward Bound facility on Washington Blvd. & Beethoven St. in West Culver City (L.A. 90066) Upward Bound may indeed have been helping homeless families since 1991, but not in Culver City (their main facility is in Santa Monica). The conditional use permit for the Culver City location was issued by the Planning Commission on October 24, 2007. It took approximately [...]

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. [...]
