  • Dear Editor

    Sep 4, 2012

    CCUSD has been awarded and recognized in many ways over the years, even while facing year after year of crippling cuts to public education. Our schools have been able to maintain excellence in academics, the arts, athletics, etc. for a multitude of reasons. But the critical reason our students have soared is because they belong to a community that cares…a community that refuses to allow its children and youth to miss the opportunities that a good education provides. The Culver City Education Foundation is a wonderful example of how our c...

    Sep 4, 2012

    The new academic year is upon us and students, teachers, staff and administrators share a sense of anticipation. This year, as in many past years, my students will be provided with a box of crayons and several lead pencils. But there will be NO COLORED PENCILS this year. Due to the budget crisis, this is but a tiny example of how our budget is being stretched thin. Without supplemental support for our students, their education will be so much less vibrant. So, what could I do? I went to a local office supply and bought my students colored...

    Mitch Chortkoff, Sports Editor|Sep 4, 2012

    Chapman will Be Assistant Principal Jon Chapman, who coached the Culver City High boys basketball team the last seven years, has given up the position to concentrate on being the school’s assistant principal.

  • Centaurs Lose Opener

    Dale Williams, Observer Reporter|Sep 4, 2012

    First Time In Nine Years It was an unusual beginning to the 2012 season for the Culver City High football team. And that’s a big reason why the Centaurs’ first game ended with such an unfamiliar feeling. Culver City rallied from deficits of 14-0 and 24-13 to take the lead late in the fourth quarter last Friday night against West Torrance, but the Centaurs’ kicking game and defense let them down at the end, and they walked off the field with a 30-25 loss to the Warriors. It was the first season-opening loss for Culver City since 2003, accor...

  • Could USC Be In Trouble Again?

    Mitch Chortkoff|Sep 4, 2012

    Mitch Chortkoff Here we go again. USC, still in the process of escaping penalties from the Reggie Bush and O.J. Mayo scandals, now is in the news again about possibly illegal gifts to former football running back Joe McKnight and basketball player Davon Jefferson. Without rushing to judgment in the latest case, I can say it looks like trouble, the last thing the Trojans needed in their first year off NCAA probation. USC is eligible for a bowl game this season but is still paying heavily for the...
