Dear Editor- Lots of Culver City in Those Angels

Dear Editor- Lots of Culver City in Those Angels

Thanks for posting this great publicity for Angel City Chorale. I’ve been a member of ACC since the fall of 2003 and so “Earth: Live!” will be my 7th spring concert with the group. 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 [...]

The Salvation Army’s address is P.O. Box 7065, Santa Monica, CA 90406. Alice Barriciello, a niece of Mayor Vera’s who is helping to coordinate [...]

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

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 [...]

Mindful of Memorial Day By Gabby Friedenthal

Mindful of Memorial Day By Gabby Friedenthal

The beginning of summer: That time when you feel the sweet release of the year’s busy pace. The sun is shining longer; your schedule doesn’t feel so very tight, you breathe a little deeper, and you drink icy margaritas on hot summer nights. Isn’t that what Memorial Day means? The beginning of summer? Ease? Barbeques? A three day weekend? When my husband asked me to stop for a [...]

Dear Editor-  Albert Made It Feel Like Old Times

Dear Editor- Albert Made It Feel Like Old Times

The last time I saw Albert Vera was this past Friday when I went in to Sorrento to buy cannolis and bread for a dinner party. I was also looking for some Progresso caponata, an eggplant appetizer. Albert was there, as he often was, and told me that Progresso had discontinued the product, but he had brought some things back from New York ("I grew up on Progresso!" I had wailed). Seeing that I [...]
