    Blake Blechner, Kids Scoop Media|Jan 18, 2018

    I recently attended the Culver City Democratic Club meeting, to listen to John Chiang speak about his run for office of Governor of California. His speech was very intriguing, and gave some insights into who he is and what his platform stands for. His parents immigrated to the United States from Taiwan.

Measure EE’s ballot description stated that it was … “To protect the quality of education in Culver City schools from deep state budget cuts by providi...

    Neil Rubenstein, Observer Columnist|Jan 18, 2018

    It’s official. March 29th is permanently recognized as National Vietnam War Veterans Day. The statute was signed into law by President Trump. Please don’t be upset when I tell you the Council and staff will be in my opinion, working night and day to put a city tax on Netflix and probably 11 percent.

    I watch a lot of games. I see players come and go but now we have one here who deserves a lot of credit – deserves to be appreciated and not traded again and again. “ His name is Lou Williams and he plays for the Los Angeles Clippers.

Williams’ story interests me a lot because he’s played well for the Lakers and once scored 44...
