  • Rams Lose Final Game of Season to Cards

    Fred Altieri|Jan 19, 2017

    File it away as a mercy killing. The pain and misery of the 2016 season finally came to an end for the Los Angeles Rams as they were summarily trounced by the Arizona Cardinals, 44-6, on New Year's Day 2017 in the L.A. Coliseum. "Our goal was to start out 2017 with a win and a little bit better vibe. Clearly that didn't happen... as far as the actual offense, defense and special teams just didn't get it done," said interim head coach John Fassel, winless in his three games at the helm following...

Fred Altieri, who covers Culver City High sports and this season added Rams coverage to his duties for the paper. I’m so plea...

  • There's An Experimental Method To Create Pregnancy

    Neil Rubenstein|Jan 19, 2017

    By Neil Rubenstein Observer Columnist On the page labeled “whatever happened to” I see the name Kim Davis. Yes, I know you remember Kim, a Kentucky county clerk and a longtime Democrat who switched to be a Republican because she felt abandoned by the Democrats in her fight against same-sex marriage.

  • SOMETHING NEW: Culver Girls Lose Basketball Games Sometimes

    Fred Altieri|Jan 19, 2017

    By Fred Altieri Sports Reporter The road to success is a hard drive. The Culver City High girls basketball team over several seasons had won its last 50 of 51 Ocean League games after defeating El Segundo, 53-42, in the 2016-17 league home-opener at Del Goodyear Gymnasium on Wednesday, January 11.

That leaves them tied for third in league play at...

  • MOVIE REVIEW: The Founder

    debbie lynn elias|Jan 19, 2017

    Super-sized ideas! Super-sized dreams! Ray Kroc was the epitome of both.

Kroc didn't just make the sale, he laid the groundwork for achieving the quintessential American Dream by way of hamburgers, french fries (400 degrees until slightly golden), pickles, milkshakes and the idea of...

  • A Classic End To The College Football Season

    Mitch Chortkoff|Jan 19, 2017

    I love college football. Always have. The NFL is great too, but I favor the unpredictable college games with less experienced players often surprising us. A year ago Alabama gave coach Lou Saban his fourth national championship. On Monday night Alabama was one second away from winning again but Clemson scored and prevailed for its first national championship in 35 years. A 45-40 loss last year. A 35-31 victory this time. The Clemson coach, Dabo Sweeney played on Alabama’s 1992 championship t...
