Dear Editor – Safety is Not Political

Dear Editor – Safety is Not Political

Our diversity is our strength. With one of the most diverse public school systems in the nation, Culver City Unified believes that it's the differences between our students that help shape their learning and their character, and propel them to unparalleled heights in college and careers. To this end, our district aims to protect this diversity and is providing resources to students and [...]

Dear Editor – Senator Mitchell Deplores Traumatic Deportation Raids

Dear Editor – Senator Mitchell Deplores Traumatic Deportation Raids

I am sickened by the recent ICE raids. It is unacceptable for families to be torn apart in this fear generating manner. Inducing trauma is not good for any individual and on a larger scale makes society ill. This is not the America of the Civil Rights Movement which taught us that everyone has a place at the table and in America. These morally corrupt actions fall, unfortunately, under the [...]

Dear Editor – Sacramento Looks to Photo Radar and Gas Tax Revenue

Dear Editor – Sacramento Looks to Photo Radar and Gas Tax Revenue

Earlier this week a group of our legislators in Sacramento filed Assembly Bill 342, to allow the use of speed cameras (photo radar) in California. In December, another group of our legislators in Sacramento filed Senate Bill 1, which will raise gas taxes and registration fees. The two bills - if they pass - will cost you hundreds of dollars every year for the rest of your life. SB-1 is [...]

Heal the Bay Asks “Don’t Let D.C. Trash the E.P.A.”

Heal the Bay Asks “Don’t Let D.C. Trash the E.P.A.”

Heal the Bay isn't just looking our for Santa Monica Bay - they are looking out for environmental standards across the country. Yesterday, Feb, 1, 2017,  members of the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works boycotted the vote to confirm Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt’s nomination to lead the EPA. A vote will be rescheduled in the coming days. From the offices of [...]

Dear Editor – Feeding the Homeless

Dear Editor – Feeding the Homeless

Having helped last week at registration for the Homeless Count and then attending the Community Workshop last Saturday on Homeless and Affordable Housing; I found myself wanting to do something that would make a difference even if it was a small difference - NOW! I also wanted to give community members an opportunity to do something that can help others as well as make them feel good. These times [...]

Dear Editor – Garden Cottages

Dear Editor – Garden Cottages

Dear Editor, I’m excited about the prospect of making and keeping housing affordable in Culver City. Why am I interested in this issue? I live in a single family home in a lovely CC neighborhood – where once we had the youngest children on the block, now my husband and I are among the elders in the neighborhood. The stock of nearby housing has increased since we purchased our home in 1986; [...]

Dear Editor – Housing? Here’s How

Dear Editor – Housing? Here’s How

Dear Editor, As a 14 year resident of Culver City it is encouraging to see current city staff and elected officials tackle difficult and sometimes thorny or loaded issues. This weekend’s community conversation around affordable housing is a prime example of matching forward thinking with substantive action. When I ran for city council last year I often spoke about affordability as a large [...]

Dear Editor – Thankful for Nov. 8

Dear Editor – Thankful for Nov. 8

Dear Editor, I am a 33 year old working mother living in Culver City with my husband, toddler son, and sometimes our shih tzu (my parents take him a lot to help us out). Since the election, I’ve vacillated between spasms of rage (in which I make frantic donations to various progressive organizations), sadness (in which I cry at the mere sight of President Obama and his beautiful family), and [...]

Dear Editor – Red Light Camera Issues

Dear Editor – Red Light Camera Issues

Dear Editor, Making the City safer is paramount, so I will discuss it first. Page 3 of the staff report says that there were eight collisions in 2014, and then discusses the number of collisions in 2015 and 2016. But it does not discuss years prior to 2014, which is curious considering that the City has had cameras for seventeen years. The following table, copied from the annual report [...]

Dear Editor – Adding More Red Light Cameras

Dear Editor – Adding More Red Light Cameras

Dear Editor, At meeting of the 12th the Culver City city council will consider a police recommendation to install six red light cameras at three new intersections. Here, from the staff report (copy attached) is a table of the violations recorded at those intersections during a 12-hour site survey or "test hang" conducted in early October. The police are recommending two cameras at each [...]
