Just A Thought – Election Reflection

Just A Thought – Election Reflection

If it feels like afterglow or hangover, there's always one person responsible for how you feel when you wake up in the morning, and that's you. While the election process in Culver City was a two hour nail-biter for the Cooper and Sahli-Wells camps, an easy skate for Malsin and a sinking feeling for Zirgulis, the contest is over. It's the commentary afterwords that shows who we really, just as [...]

City Council Final – Or Is It?

City Council Final – Or Is It?

As the vote-by-mail tallies came to an end and the live ballots came in, the difference between Cooper and Sahli-Wells was just one vote; Cooper with 974 and Sahli-Wells with 973. Malsin was comfortably ahead with 1,188 and Zirguilis, as expected, trailed with 397. Things were almost as predicted, but to have a one-vote split left off the usual wisdom that the mail-in votes had decided the [...]

Dear Editor- Not Voting For Cooper

Dear Editor- Not Voting For Cooper

Dear Editor, We have always taught our daughter two important things in life: first, “Actions speak louder then words” and second, “Talk is cheap”. One example is how Cooper states he saved "green space" in the Culver City Park by fighting to relocated the proposed Skate Park location. He is glossing over the City's past complete failure to enforce the skate park rules. At the 2008 [...]

Fresh from the Farm by Katie Malich

Fresh from the Farm by Katie Malich

Fresh fava beans are in season at the Tuesday Culver City Farmers Market. First cultivated by ancient Egyptians, they are regularly eaten for breakfast and used for falafel. Fava beans are a common ingredient in middle Eastern and European cuisine and a common snack in southwest Asia, but are relatively unknown here in North America. The pods are long (about 5 to 7 inches), fat, and slightly [...]

SCOOP- Muir to Return as CFO

SCOOP- Muir to Return as CFO

While rumors have been afloat for days that former Chief Financial Officer for Culver City, Jeff Muir was on his way back to his desk at City Hall, it was still just a rumor. Today, Mayor Andy Weissman confirmed that Muir will be returning to his previous post on April 26. While his departure was brief, it will be intriguing to see if wooing Muir back to the desk involved an increase in his [...]

Just a Thought- Casting a Ballot

Just a Thought- Casting a Ballot

So, you know me well enough to know that wild horses wouldn’t keep me from the polls tomorrow. But do you know me well enough to know whom I’m voting for? While I do admire the folks who mail in their ballots, to me, it’s like kissing over the phone. Good to make your feelings known, but just not nearly as satisfying as the real deal. I want to see who is running the polling station. I [...]

Dear Editor- Another Cooper Fan

Dear Editor, As a Culver City enthusiast, and as a mother choosing to raise children here, I care deeply about preserving the character of this community and making the right choices in difficult times. I want to be represented on the City Council by someone who will work tirelessly and thoughtfully to tackle the issues of today and tomorrow. I want a representative who is open-minded and [...]

Final Pre-Election Audio Interview – Scott Malsin

Final Pre-Election Audio Interview – Scott Malsin

If you have been paying attention to the machinations of the City Council during the past two years, you already have an opinion about Scott Malsin. While "love" and "hate" seem to be very strong words to use in regard to the council, they have been used in regard to Scott.  His work on green issues, like the sustainability committee and the expo line, consistently wins him fans among [...]

Dear Editor – Karlo Likes Meghan

Dear Editor – Karlo Likes Meghan

Our community is currently at a crossroads: do we want to maintain our small town feel and quality of life or do we want to see overdevelopment and massive budget cuts permanently change our city? With that question in mind, I am voting for Meghan Sahli-Wells on Tuesday. Meghan has proven through her extensive involvement in founding two neighborhood organizations and working on the city’s [...]
