Fresh From the Farm by Katie Malich

Fresh From the Farm by Katie Malich

What vegetable contains three times as much vitamin C as oranges, twice as much iron as spinach and can serve as a natural breath freshener? Parsley. That humble little sprig of green which garnishes so many plates and far too often gets sent back to the kitchen with the dirty dishes, untouched. If you're one of the many people who haven't enjoyed the fresh taste of parsley at the end of [...]

Dear Editor- A Little Kindness

Dear Editor- A Little Kindness

Dear Editor, Albert's offerings from Sorretno's were a testament to the idea that a little kindness can have a big impact on the lives of others. We are devastated by the news of his passing. Every time we stopped in to Sorrentos over the past 10 years he lifted our spirits and was kind to us. He will be sorely missed by us and so many others. Maggie DeFilippis

Dear Editor- Lots of Culver City in Those Angels

Dear Editor- Lots of Culver City in Those Angels

During the week before a concert, we always practice on Tuesday AND Thursday nights at our concert venue. These are traditionally grueling rehearsals with our distinguished director, Sue Fink, finding [...]

Voices Off, Please! by Elizabeth Coombs

Voices Off, Please! by Elizabeth Coombs

My mother has always been a big one for apologies. Kindness and consideration start with knowing how to apologize, she always said. “Everyone slips up sometimes,” she continually reminded my brother and me. “The easiest way to get past it is to say you're sorry, even if you think the other person is wrong, too. That at least starts the conversation.” Well, I'm going to take a page from [...]

Holly J. Mitchell Runs for 47th Assembly

Holly J. Mitchell Runs for 47th Assembly

She's been in my mailbox every day for weeks now, so I had to ask my hyper-political self- Ok, who is this woman and why should I vote for her? Holly J. Mitchell is the CEO of Crystal Stairs, an organization that I have long admired. Unless you are a working mother, you cannot imagine how crucial child care is to the entire economy. If you are a working single mother, child care is just [...]
