Dear Editor – Rent Control

Dear Editor – Rent Control

Affordable housing and rent stabilization are two entirely different issues and even if Culver City were to create more affordable housing at this juncture, which of course Culver City also desperately needs, it would still not negate the need for rent stabilization and tenant rights. Mayor Jeff Cooper has been trying to dance around the movement for Rent Stabilization and Tenant Rights [...]

Dear Editor – Culver Crest Emergency Preparedness

Dear Editor – Culver Crest Emergency Preparedness

For the past year members of our Culver Crest Neighborhood Association have worked on developing an Emergency Preparedness Program. Our commitment should a disaster strike is to “be prepared, not scared.” We are launching a Street by Street canvassing effort to inventory community resources and skills, so should an emergency arise, we can coordinate efforts to facilitate everyone's [...]

Dear Editor – The City and the Ice Rink

Dear Editor – The City and the Ice Rink

Numerous people have spoken passionately about the Culver City Ice Arena, and we want to thank everyone who has taken the time to email, write or speak to us. It’s clear that this issue is important to the community in Culver City and beyond. Most of the comments have expressed an ardent desire to keep ice-skating in Culver City. We share that desire. Our friends, our neighbors and our own [...]

Dear Editor – Walk With a Doc

Dear Editor – Walk With a Doc

Dear Editor, Walk With A Doc/Culver City took its inaugural “first steps” in the city this Saturday, January 18, at Veterans Park guided by physician Dr Pouya Shafipour, of Wellesley Medical in Santa Monica.  After warm-ups and stretches with Culver Palms YMCA Fitness Trainer, Brandon Webb, Dr. Shafipour spoke to a gathering of about 50 eager participants and led them on a brisk walk [...]

Dear Editor – Can Culver City Save the Ice Rink?

Dear Editor – Can Culver City Save the Ice Rink?

As I begin to write this letter, I am filled with emotions. I am so very sad. My children, a son, age 12 and my daughter, age 9 have discovered ice-skating and have been thriving in every way while taking lessons at The Culver City Ice Rink. To find a sport that both of my kids enjoy and can do together is quite significant and rare. I treasure our times at The Culver City Ice Rink. My children [...]

Dear Editor – Backpacks for Christmas a Gift for All

Dear Editor – Backpacks for Christmas a Gift for All

Everyone is getting ready for the Holidays. Hanukah is done, and we are on to Christmas. I am sure each one of you is figuring out who is on your list and what to buy them. I would like to suggest to each Culver City resident or worker who is fortunate enough to have a list and money, to think about adding a contribution to feed the children of Culver City. Many do not know that children in [...]

Dear Editor – Voters Needed for Upcoming Election

Dear Editor – Voters Needed for Upcoming Election

As a resident of Culver City for over 45 years I have seen almost everything happen within this city. One truly outstanding event was the election of my husband, Richard Alexander to the City Council in 1974 against almost all odds. It was somewhat like David and Goliath and forty years later I am witnessing the same type of event --with what I hope, will be the same outcome. Christopher Armenta [...]

Dear Editor – Support Given and Withdrawn

Dear Editor – Support Given and Withdrawn

I’ve known Chris Armenta for over a decade. Having served with him for four years on the Culver City Council, I know his heart is in the right place. When asked if I would endorse his campaign for State Assembly, I did so without reservation. However, having seen a recent campaign mailer attacking his opponent, I am withdrawing my support. I have always set a high standard for my own [...]

Dear Editor – Next Election Approaching Quickly

Dear Editor – Next Election Approaching Quickly

 Does money in politics & fracking in our Baldwin Hills concern you? On Tuesday December 3rd there is a special election. This is our opportunity to elect as our State Assembly member, a Culver City favorite voted most popular elected official in 2008 because of his total dedication to the community. He will speak out and work on our behalf in Sacramento. Former Culver City Mayor Chris [...]

Dear Editor – Nota Sheep (Quite A Statement)

Dear Editor – Nota Sheep (Quite A Statement)

Time for a Change -- I am a teacher at one of the schools in the Culver City Unified School District. As I fear retribution from our union leadership, I prefer to use the name Nota Sheep. Certainly, my parents were not that mean, and this is not my real name. Every two years, our union leadership chooses one or more candidates to support in the school board elections. Union leadership does [...]
