Small Business and State Contracts- An Editorial by Sen. Curren Price

Small Business and State Contracts- An Editorial by Sen. Curren Price

As California emerges from the recession, many businesses will begin revving up for the better more prosperous days ahead, as will many small, minority and women-owned firms. But the latter have something working for them in state government that needs to continue – a twenty-five percent small business contracting goal. That goal can be the key to ensuring that these small businesses ride [...]

Dear Editor- Safe Routes Not Taken

Dear Editor- Safe Routes Not Taken

Dear Editor, The decision not to apply for the "Safe Routes to School" grant in July by Culver City saddens me. In September of 2007, a local newspaper printed a photograph of double-parked vehicles and children crossing Elenda in front of Culver City High School. The caption was apparently tongue in cheek that a new school year brought the same traffic problems. Outside of sweeps by Culver [...]

Dear Editor – Union Bargaining Update

Dear Editor – Union Bargaining Update

Dear Editor, Your CCFT bargaining team (Casey Chabola, Amy Maldonado, Natalie Gualtieri, Claudette DuBois, David Mielke, and Kevin Cronin) met again with the CCUSD Management team on Thursday, May 19. CCUSD presented us with a proposal that calls for 7 unpaid furlough days for next year. This proposal is more costly to our bargaining unit than their first "pay cuts" proposal and thus is a [...]

Dear Editor- Car Show Gets Tickets

Dear Editor- Car Show Gets Tickets

The eighth time was the charm. On Saturday the 8th Annual Culver City Car Show took place in Downtown Culver City. Two Monday nights ago Culver City Council rewarded the Car Show “Event Operator” and Culver City’s Parking Enforcement for last year’s poor performance in fulfilling their obligation to help protect the Culver Downtown Neighborhood from intrusion. People looking for [...]

Dear Editor – Parking the Car Show

Dear Editor – Parking the Car Show

Dear Editor, It pays to have friends in high places. Executives of banks that were bailed out by the Federal Government gave themselves bonuses as a reward for their mismanagement. On Saturday the 8th Annual Culver City Car Show will take place in Downtown Culver City. Last Monday night Culver City Council rewarded the Car Show “Event Operator” and Culver City’s Parking Enforcement [...]

Dear Editor – Classified President Calls for Communication

Dear Editor – Classified President Calls for Communication

Dear Editor, The proposals that appeared on the cut list the Board of Education considered at their April 26th meeting were so unbelievably close to the classroom, and would have such a detrimental affect on our students, that they took my breath away. Some community members may feel that the board members always have the best interests of the students in mind, and that union presidents only [...]

Dear Editor- Safe Routes to School Needs Your Voice

Dear Editor- Safe Routes to School Needs Your Voice

Dear Editor, The FY2011 appropriations deal requires state Departments of Transportation to return $2.5 billion in transportation funding to Washington. Based on past "rescissions" like this, many state DOTs will take most of the cuts from bicycle and pedestrian programs. While Safe Routes to School is not eligible for these rescissions, it could devastate Transportation Enhancements and [...]

Dear Editor- Permits and Legislation (Act Now – Live Links)

Dear Editor- Permits and Legislation (Act Now – Live Links)

Dear Editor, As most of you know, last year LAUSD announced an intent to deny releases to then currently permitted students attending CCUSD for this school year. That meant that currently permitted students who may have been attending CCUSD for their entire education would have been forced to go to LAUSD schools, and CCUSD would have lost the over $5 million in funding that the permit [...]

Dear Editor- Cold Hearts at Cold Stone Creamery

Dear Editor- Cold Hearts at Cold Stone Creamery

Dear Editor, The Culver City Cold Stone Creamery has a cold heart for blood donors! This time I couldn't believe my ears. It seemed like deja vu, but I insisted that the expiration date of the coupon for a free ice cream and topping had not expired. The last time I gave blood, I got a similar coupon and showed up a couple of days after it expired. I was denied then, too, although I suggested [...]

Dear Editor – Racing for Support

Dear Editor – Racing for Support

An editorial in the March 31 edition of the Culver City News asked why there's no Culver City 5K? There is. More precisely, there was. Unfortunately this years event won't be produced because its primary sponsor, Sporteve, is struggling to say open. This popular event has grown every year for three years and last year (2010) raised $10,000 for the Culver City Education Foundation. According [...]
