Dear Editor – Kent Brings Wisdom

Dear Editor – Kent Brings Wisdom

It is refreshing to learn that we in Culver City are blessed to have Dr Kelly Kent, an Educational Neuroscientist, willing to serve as a School Board member. As a seasoned educator and psychotherapist for the past 30 years, I've witnessed the benefits my clients enjoy from applied neuroscience. We can too! How? Last year we voted to spend over $200 million (Bond + interest) to improve our [...]

Dear Editor – Walking the Talk

Dear Editor – Walking the Talk

I am avidly and proudly supporting both Anne Burke and Scott McVarish because of my many years of working with both of them and my high regard for what they have accomplished for our schools in past years. Anne Burke, received the Volunteer of the Year award from the Culver City Education Foundation in 2011 for CCUSD’s office of Child Development when her children were in preschool. She [...]

Dear Editor – Democratic Embarassment

Dear Editor – Democratic Embarassment

In the October 2015 newsletter of the Culver City Democratic Club, club officer Pat Levinson wrote, "as Anne Burke ended her concluding statement, she remarked that she was 'the only candidate of color' for the Board election. Huh? Don’t keep us in suspense, Anne. Which color is that?" Wow. That kind of small-minded bigotry from Ms. Levinson has no place in Culver City. Anne Burke is the [...]

Dear Editor – Support for Kent

Why am I walking and talking to my neighbors about Kelly Kent? I am inspired to do this for three reasons: * She is a parent and she is an educator. Having both perspectives allows her to see the work of the Board both from the perspective of the professionals who work in the schools and from the perspective of the parents being served. This is essential. * Kelly understands that parent [...]

Dear Editor – Compelled to Vote for Kelly Kent

Dr. Kelly Kent exudes intelligence, ingenuity and integrity. She is an incredibly positive force of nature brimming with creative ideas and love for our community. One can’t help but adore and be in awe of this woman. Hands-on mom of two, Dr. Kelly holds a Ph.D. in neuroscience, is founder and director of a reputable educational firm, lecturer at two local colleges, and as if that is not [...]

Dear Editor – Taxpayers See Bond Experience with Burke & McVarish

Dear Editor – Taxpayers See Bond Experience with Burke & McVarish

My fellow taxpayers, we just left the School Board candidates forum sponsored by the League of Women Voters broadcast from City Hall. There are three candidates for two open seats. For about the last two years, by far the most important issue has been the passage of the bond. In June, 2014, by about a ¾ margin it passed successfully. The BOND measure allows the School District to spend [...]

Dear Editor – Support for Burke & McVarish

Dear Editor, Anne Burke and Scott McVarish will make excellent additions to the School Board. Our current board is hip deep handling the allocation of school bond funds, Anne and Scott are ready to jump in and join them. Through their involvement with the facilities assessments, bond workshops, and attendance at School Board meetings, Anne and Scott have really done their homework and understand [...]

Dear Editor – PTSA Seeks Art Lover

Hi, Michael Engel here, incoming PTSA president. We're looking for someone to coordinate this year’s Reflections program here at the high school. This year’s theme is Let Your Imagination Fly! It’s such a great program and we have so many talented artists at CCHS. This is a fantastic opportunity to let those talents FLY!  Who out there in our community that will help facilitate that?

Dear Editor – Makerspace Launch a Success

Dear Editor – Makerspace Launch a Success

The USVAA Ft. MacArthur Makerspace Launch and Fundraiser was a huge success and we couldn't have done it without the extraordinary support of our friends and colleagues at Angels Gate Cultural Center along with your individual support and donations. We admit -- even with an incredible venue and a view of the San Pedro Harbor to our front -- it did get a little chilly starting out Saturday [...]

Dear Editor – Senior Center Signage

Dear Editor – Senior Center Signage

My first visit to the Culver City Senior Center was a pleasant surprise. It offers a wealth of information activities and information. At the time when I paid the class fee there was no mention of a need for a permit. I assumed my handicapped placard issued by the DMV was ‘the permit’ mentioned on signs in the parking area. But after the session, I discovered that my car had been [...]
