Dear Editor – Thanks to Officer Fleeger

Dear Editor – Thanks to Officer Fleeger

I am writing this note to thank Officer Corolla Fleeger for her amazing work. With her incredible dedication and initiative, this week she reunited an elderly, injured dog with its family. She is Culver City’s Animal Service Officer, and I wanted to share this story and also to let our Culver City residents know that we have this wonderful resource. Yesterday morning, my son Sam spotted a [...]

Dear Editor – Mansionization

Dear Editor – Mansionization

Hello, I am a Culver City resident and one of the many residents concerned with the burgeoning number of over-sized home's being constructed in some of our neighborhoods. We believe there is a serious need for the City to re-examine our outdated residential zoning codes. Our current codes do not properly address these homes, which are negatively impacting the character of our community, as [...]

Dear Editor – ‘Seymour’ Film Gets Rave from CCSO

Dear Editor – ‘Seymour’ Film Gets Rave from CCSO

Dear Editor, Last night I watched the movie "Seymour: An Introduction." There are few movies on Classical Music which are true to the art, and its craft. This is one. Seymour Bernstein is a pianist who in the midst of successful and highly critically acclaimed performing career retired in his fifties, and then sought a life of solitude in his one-room Manhattan apartment to study music, [...]

Dear Editor – Unleashed Dog

Dear Editor – Unleashed Dog

Dear Editor, I have been a resident of Culver City for over forty years. Recently when I was attempting to walk through Coombs Park located between the 10700 and 10800 blocks of Farragut Drive and 10700 and 10800 blocks of Franklin Avenue I was harassed by an unleashed dog being allowed to play in the park by her owner. As the dog continued to harass me, the owner showed very little control [...]

Dear Editor – Voting on March 3

Dear Editor – Voting on March 3

I've noticed that Culver City residents tend to get grouchy when called upon to vote in March of the odd-numbered years (like, on this coming Tuesday, March 3, 2015). The only thing on our ballots is the L.A. Community College District Board of Trustees, and the election is administered by the City of Los Angeles, along with their primary elections for City Council (even-numbered districts) [...]

Dear Editor – Please Drive Carefully

Dear Editor – Please Drive Carefully

Dear Editor, I wanted to express my support of Lynn Akamine's recent letter regarding "near misses" at the CCUSD Elenda Street Complex. Our Culver City Crossing Guards do a great job under tough circumstances. I just wanted to point out that my recollection is that two children have been involved in pedestrian vs vehicle accidents on Farragut Drive, one student was involved in a pedestrian [...]

Dear Editor – A Valentine for Lovie

Dear Editor – A Valentine for Lovie

Here I am, writing down my Valentine’s Day list of relatives and friends—the usual suspects. But for some reason, at the top of my list is Lovie. For those of you who don’t know Lovie, she is a school crossing guard. She’s stationed at one of the busiest intersections in Culver City, where a preschool, an elementary school, middle school, and two high schools and an adult school [...]
