Dear Editor – Sanctuary Now

Dear Editor – Sanctuary Now

On March 15, 2017, the Culver City Police Department (CCPD) held a community forum to discuss its practices regarding immigration law enforcement.

Immigration law is separate from criminal law, and its enforcement is the federal [...]

Ruth’s Truths – Ruth Morris

Blame It On Us -- Consistently rated as one of LA's top bakeries, Culver City's own Lodge Bread re-opened this past Saturday after a relatively short hiatus to renovate and expand. They opened in 2015, and my weight gain in 2016 is partially their fault. I'd often spend half a weekend day there with a cup of coffee, eating one of their special toast concoctions, or their shakshuka. I'd be [...]

Let's say you have an elected official leaving, and replacing them is essential. Know that Lincoln was right; you can please some of the people some of the time. In this political era, that's about it. The School Board meeting on Tuesday that focused on filling Sue Robins' seat heard a lot of applause, and a few critiques of the process. While Summer McBride's appointment was about as close to [...]
