  • City Manager Backs Police Chief

    David W. Myers|Jul 29, 2010

    Efforts by the local police officers’ union to oust Chief Don Pedersen took another turn this week, when Interim City Manager Lamont Ewell said he has informally investigated the five specific charges that the union recently leveled at the chief and determined that most of them have “very little merit.” “And frankly,” Ewell told The Observer, “some of them have no merit at all.” Ewell’s remarks came just days after the Culver City Police Officers’ Association announced that 86.5 percent of i...

    Elisabeth Hebert|Jul 29, 2010

    Dinah’s annual “Blast to the Past” on Tuesday was truly a blast to the past! Between the waitresses’ dressed in poodle skirts, bobby soc ks and ponytails to the he rock n roll music the 1959 vibe was definitely recreated. The restaurant was packed, especially because of the 1959 prices. The customer service was exceptional and our waitress, Elena Rosales was on duty from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Our bill was literally $5.69.

  • Upgraded Roster Will Help Lakers

    Mitch Chortkoff|Jul 29, 2010

    When I was traveling with Laker teams for many years we used to pass idle time by discussing a variety of basketball topics. One time Jerry West told me it was important to make changes, usually among the reserves, every season regardless of how successful the team had been. He thought it was best to do that for team chemistry. Mitch Kupchak is the general manager now and it’s obvious he was well trained by West.
