Why Eriksson? What is that special attribute that he will bring to the dais [...]

Just a Thought – Public, Private, Secret

Just a Thought – Public, Private, Secret

The huge response to one of our recent 'Letter to the Editor' posts had several people asking "Why was this even published?" we thought it time to remind our readers what our standards are, and why. Letters to the Editor need to meet three requirements. They must be written by a real person, signed with a real name, sent from a real email address so we can contact you. While pseudonymous [...]

Dear Editor – Social Media Secret Society

Dear Editor – Social Media Secret Society

It has come to my attention that there is a closed-secret-society Facebook Bulletin Board facilitated by Dan O’Brien, an outspoken Grace Church member and supporter. Some Secret Society members are full of vitriolic-incendiary and sometimes defamatory rhetoric directed toward Farragut Drive residents. Some incite others to damage the residents’ property, without considering their personal [...]

The Myth of the 4 Year College Degree, ( or is it?) The times they are a changing. Back when most parents of current high school students went to college, a four-year college education was the norm. Relatively few students took five years. According to the National Department of Education, currently only 40% of students nationwide graduate in four years. At public schools the number is only [...]

Dear Editor – Eriksson for Environment

Dear Editor – Eriksson for Environment

We have known Goran for several years and we have found that he has three important skills to be an effective member on our City Council. Goran has strong people skills, financial skills and environmental skills. Almost two years ago, he was appointed by a vote of all sitting Council members to the Finance Budget Advisory Committee. There, as the Chairperson, he has advocated for increased [...]

Dear Editor – Enthusiasm for Eriksson

Dear Editor – Enthusiasm for Eriksson

I am supporting Göran Eriksson for City Council. While I appreciate his positions on issues that are important to Culver City, such as environmental issues, business attraction and retention, public safety and all the other aspects that make Culver City such a great city to live in, I am supporting him for more basic, personal reasons. I admire his diligence, his work ethic, his intelligence and [...]
