Years ago when my sister Linda lost her brave struggle with cancer, I started a checker contest in her honor at the Senior Center. It's been four years since we laid my wife Toby to rest. Each year at the Middle School we have the Toby Rubenstein Chess Tournament. I'm grateful to the District and to the two faculty sponsors -- Miss Morris and Mr. Adamucci -- for making it a huge success.
And that leads to the latest contest I'm offering,
As everybody knows, we have two Culver City Hall retirees, and soon to be more, getting over $180,000 per year. This is more than we pay members of Congress. But what about in comparison to the governors of our 50 states?
Here's the deal to win a $75 gift card to Lucille's BBQ restaurant at the Westfield Culver City Mall. The winner will have submitted the states in alphabetical order with the governors' names and each annual salary, without benefits. The list is to be sent by U.S. mail to Neil Rubenstein c/o Culver City Observer, 4346 Sepulveda Blvd., Culver City, CA 90230 and received by no later than Monday, January 14, 2013. One entry per Culver City address is permitted. All complete and correct submissions will have their return address label used for the drawing. Only one winner will be drawn and that person will be notified.
Prepare to be amazed.
