Dear Editor – Oil Production & Health Risks

Dear Editor – Oil Production & Health Risks

Dear Editor, On July 11th Culver City is having a special Council meeting to hear from us whether the City should keep honoring a request from the new owners of the oil field under our homes.

Even the mission team anxiously awaiting confirmation that the spacecraft survived its innovative, bouncy landing could not anticipate the magnitude of the pivot about to shape the Space Age.
