    Stephen Hadland|Oct 27, 2016

    The Culver City City Council voted Monday night to sue the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) over the agency’s plan to refigure air traffic over Southern California. The FAA contends that the project called Southern California Metroplex will upgrade decades-old air traffic procedures by moving flight patterns from ground based radar to newer satellite navigation. The FAA contends it will reduce skyway congestion, carbon emissions and, in some cases, noise. At its Monday meeting,Culver C...

  • Congratulate The Dodgers For A Surprisingly Successful Season

    Mitch Chortkoff|Oct 27, 2016

    A lot of Dodger fans are disappointed that their team didn’t make the World Series again this season. I see the season in a much different way. The Dodgers were phenomenal in overcoming an eight-game division deficit to finish in first place over the Giants. Then they won their first round playoff series and gave the heavily favored Cubs a battle before losing in the second round. All of this without the addition of any elite free agent pitchers last summer. They lost one, in fact, when they w...

  • Another Parcel Tax? It's A Possibility

    Neil Rubenstein|Oct 27, 2016

    So what happened to the $20 bill? Just how long does it take to remove President Jackson and put in Harriet Tubman? I believe the Central Valley’s bullet train just shot its backers in their feet. It’s amazing the Board of Supervisors is considering a parcel tax to help the homeless. Culver City already has a parcel tax for the Julian Dixon County Library and I’m darn sure there are one or two more that I just don’t remember. Saint Vincent operates the world’s largest thrift store. It’s 54,0...

    Students at La Ballona Elementary School are taking part in an innovative, new learning experience designed to help them learn about mathematics in a way that is both fun and engaging. Each Tuesday after school students gather for La Ballona Math Circle, part of a movement originated in Eastern Europe that came to the United States in the 1990s.

  • Goblins and Gobs of Tax Hikes - Plus Your Property Tax Bill

    Jon Coupal|Oct 27, 2016

    As any reader of this column knows, voters will be confronted come election day with billions and billions of new tax hikes and bond measures (which, of course, result in their own tax hikes). But let’s not forget that there is another reason for taxpayer to experience a heightened sense of anxiety over the next few weeks. For many the real scare this time of year is not the monsters at our doors on Halloween but the property tax bill in the mail box. But, while the “tax and spend” lobby incre...

  • America's On Edge

    Carole Bell|Oct 27, 2016

    It's going around, like December's flu. We're all afraid of it, and everyone's catching it. You're not sure if you've got it; you just sense something's wrong. Feeling anxious? Fear, foreboding, worry. Disquiet. They define it. The antonym's tranquility. Can you truthfully say this election's got you feeling tranquil? Everyone I speak to is worried; the doubts go beyond who'll win the White House. Hillary Clinton took donations from foreign countries to the family's foundation, then gave them...

  • Dodgers' Roberts Is NL Manager Of The Year

    Oct 27, 2016

The Dodgers finished 91-71 as Roberts joined Tommy Lasorda in 1977 as the only rookie manager in Dodgers history to win the award....

  • Culver Football Gains Share Of First Place Again

    Fred Altieri|Oct 27, 2016

    The Culver City High Centaurs moved into a four-way tie for first place in the 2016 Ocean League football season as they trounced host Lawndale High 62-35, on Friday, October 21. The Centaurs scored nine touchdowns, two each in the first three quarters yet the outcome wasn't decided until the fourth quarter when they rallied for three more touchdowns to slam the door on a much-improved and stubborn Hawthorne team which crept back into the game at 42-35 minutes into the final quarter.

  • Los Angeles Kings: A Win Is A Win Is A Win

    Kay Douglas|Oct 27, 2016

    I love hockey. Whether it's played on ice or cement with sharp blades of steel or roller blades. As long as there is a puck and a net I'll watch it and cheer for whichever team I believe is working the hardest. When all of the cheering is over, though, I want a clear winner. Last Saturday, at the end of what I would generally consider a well-played game, the Kings found themselves in a 3-3 tie with Vancouver. Now Vancouver is clearly a very good team...after all, they have The Sedins , always a...

  • Keenum Remains Rams' Quarterback Despite Interceptions

    Fred Altieri|Oct 27, 2016

    The Los Angeles Rams' first half of the 2016 season took another hit as they lost a 'home' game to the New York Giants, 17-10, at Twickenham Stadium, just outside London on October 23. Just in time to spoil early Sunday morning breakfast for Ram fans across Southern California. The Rams were facing a third-and-10 at the Giants' 15-yard line with 50 seconds to go, needing a touchdown to tie the game. On a high alley-oop pass intended for wide receiver Brian Quick who took a wrong turn, Keenum...

  • UCLA Football Facing That Fork In The Road

    Steve Finley|Oct 27, 2016

    The UCLA football team is hoping that its bye week will help them regroup and put them in a position to climb back into the winning column. They have lost three games in a row and they have dropped to fifth place in a si- team Pac-12 Southern Conference. Their overall record is 3-5 and they are 1-4 in conference play. Their running game has basically disappeared and their passing game, without injured star quarterback Josh Rosen creates to many turnovers with costly interceptions. Last week...

  • HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT: Interview New School Superintendent

    Sandra Coopersmith|Oct 27, 2016

Just ask Culver City Unified School District's affable and enthusiastic Superintendent, Dr. Joshua Arnold, who started July 1, 2016 (or keep reading for the answer). After earning his Bachelor of Arts in English from UCLA he obtained a Masters in Organizational Leadership from Harvard and a Doctorate in Education from USC.

  • MOVIE REVIEW: IN A VALLEY OF VIOLENCE

    debbie lynn elias|Oct 27, 2016

    As if David MacKenzie's award-worthy "Hell or High Water" wasn't enough of a reason to celebrate cinema, and particularly the American western, Antoine Fuqua brings us the high octane stunning reimagination of "The Magnificent Seven." But now lauded horror genre writer/director/editor Ti West enters the corral with IN A VALLEY OF VIOLENCE, a real rootin' tootin' western but with a Ti West twist, proving yet again that the western is alive and well and very much beloved. As we saw with "The...
