  • Lakers Fined $500,000 For TamperingNBA Takes This Offense Seriously

    Mitch Chortkoff|Sep 7, 2017

    When I heard the NBA was going to investigate the Indiana Pacers’ claim that the Lakers had tampered with one of their players, Paul George I thought it was a weak case. My reasoning was that George, who grew up in Southern California, has been telling everyone for the last year or two that he intended to sign with the Lakers when his contract expires in 2018. What could the Lakers add to that? But when the NBA announced last Thursday that they have fined the Lakers $500,000 I listened c...

  • The Culver Studios & Lin Howe Boosters Create New Butterfly Garden

    Mailee Johnson|Sep 7, 2017

    Summers in LA can get quite hot. Especially with asphalt that traps and contains heat, its not that pleasant. And at Lin Howe, and with the Culver Studios help, they realized this problem. With enough funding, Lin Howe transformed their asphalt patch into a beautiful butterfly garden. I went to the Culver Hotel to discuss with the main builders and minds behind the whole project, whom are: Michael Goldfarb (and all of Culver Studios), Jen Conlon (A Landscape Architect who donated her talent to create this garden), and the Lin Howes Boosters...

  • Another Upstairs Downstairs?

    Carole Bell|Sep 7, 2017

    It's time for a couple of lyrical, and not so, anniversaries. The time was sensational. A half-century ago, The Beatles released their seminal Sgt. Pepper album, shaking up rock music and culture. The album won four Grammy's, was number one for 15 weeks, and ranked number one in Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Albums of All Time".A peek at making the album, "It Was Fifty Years Ago Today! The Beatles: Sgt. Pepper & Beyond," features John Lennon (in extreme close-up) explaining the group, with...

  • Coffee Prices on the Rise

    Neil Rubenstein|Sep 7, 2017

    According to the New York Post, Wells Fargo’s reputation took another hit on Friday, April 22, 2017 when the bank admitted its practice of opening phony customer accounts started back in 2002 not in 2009 as first reported. For all you coffee drinkers keep your eyes peeled on the food store circulars, because coffee futures in New York driven by worldwide crop gluts touched a ten year low recently. Don’t get the person with the gavel upset; a judge said VW was guilty of deliberate and mas...

    Fred Altieri|Sep 7, 2017

    The only thing missing was a fireworks show to end the action-packed performance. 2017 Culver City High football got off to an explosive start as the Centaurs' offensive machine dominated visiting West High of Torrance 58-27 before a very spirited and satisfied home crowd on Friday, September 1 at Jerry Chabola Stadium.

  • LA Chargers Will Debut At Denver

    Bill Seals|Sep 7, 2017

    The LA Chargers ended the 2017 preseason on Thursday Night at San Francisco, losing 23-13 to the 49ers. In a game with very little at stake other than some roster spots, neither team played their starters and both teams were just happy to get the preseason over with and move on to the regular season. Cardale Jones completed 18 of 24 passes for 158 yards and one interception and finally led the Chargers on a scoring drive (two fieldgoals). But five Charger turnovers ended up resulting in an easy...

Rams Head Coach McVay and his coaching staff will be compelled to quickly instill a winning attitude and record due after a dismal 4-12 season under the previous coaching regime.

  • No. 6 USC Will Battle No. 14 Stanford on Saturday

    Steve Finley|Sep 7, 2017

    The Los Angeles Coliseum has been a place where a lot of great football games have been played. When No. 6 USC clashes with No. 14 Stanford on Saturday at 5:30 p.m. at the Coliseum, it figures to be another one of those games that has Pac-12 and national implications. Both teams are 1-0 and both teams have great football tradition. USC’s 49-21 win over Western Michigan last Saturday was a good test for the Trojans. Although the name Western Michigan does not scare a lot of people, they are a v...

    Suzanne DeBenedittis|Sep 7, 2017

    Let's not expose Culver City to possibly becoming another disaster like San Bruno or Porter Ranch. Inadequate regulations and private interests have too often gotten in the way of protecting people's rights. Fortunately we in Culver City will soon have the opportunity to protect what we hold dear. Culver City is soon coming out with a draft of environmental impacts (EIR) on proposed regulations for oil and gas (O&G) exploration and production on the oil field in our City.

  • Sports World Mourns And Contributes To Houston

    Mitch Chortkoff|Sep 7, 2017

Sometimes I hear folks say professional athletes make too much money It’s true that some of them make a lot more than star players of the past. This many million, that many million. It seems like an awful, awful lot, But then something tragic happens and they pitch in. Consider the current flooding damage in Houston from Hurricane Harvey and contributions from the sports world. Leslie Alexander, owner of the Houston Rockets, p...

  • UCLA Football Wins One For The Ages

    Steve Finley|Sep 7, 2017

    UCLA's 45-44 thrilling comeback win over Texas A&M last Sunday at the Rose Bowl was a game that defied all logical explanations when it comes to making a sports comeback. What made it so hard to believe was that the Bruins were so bad in the first have and so good in the second half. They were down 38 to 10 at half time and even some of UCLA's most devoted fans were so discouraged that they started to leave the Rose Bowl. UCLA appeared to be sleep walking in the first half and they continued to...
