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 [...]

Dear Editor – Facts Were Sought, Answers Are Still Needed

Dear Editor – Facts Were Sought, Answers Are Still Needed

Dear Editor, I am writing in response to your editorial regarding “Alternative Facts” in which you noted the recent situation regarding “Dr. I’s” role as principal at Lin Howe. Firstly, I want to say that you are absolutely correct that we should not operate on rumor and that we should vet our sources carefully. This is valid and should be applauded. However, in your article, you [...]

Here are a few talking points: Community Choice is the best way to achieve lower electricity rates AND more renewable energy. For more information about [...]

Dear Editor – Council Member Small Address EIR Vote

Dear Editor – Council Member Small Address EIR Vote

Dear Editor, Last Monday night’s City Council discussion and vote on the future of the oil field was impassioned and challenging. Anyone who listened knows that my critique and questions, for the new oilfield operator Sentinel Peak, were incisive and exacting. The company’s presentation to Council and the public was not encouraging. Their responses to our questions were inadequate. There [...]

Dear Editor – Clarke and Eriksson Defend Their Votes

Dear Editor –  Clarke and Eriksson Defend Their Votes

Dear Editor, In the face of a passionate group of residents who demanded that the city not even meet with the new owners of the Culver City oil fields, Monday’s City Council vote to talk with Sentinel Peak Resources (SPR) was a difficult one, but we believe it was both prudent and responsible for the future of our city. Because the city’s Environmental Impact Report and Specific Plan [...]
