  • The music great duo from the 70's and into the 80's delighted fans at the Hollywood Bowl

    Steven Lieberman, Observer Reporter|Oct 28, 2021

    The legendary, dynamic duo of Hall & Oates took the stage at the sold out Hollywood Bowl much to the delight of their long-time adoring fans.

  • LA Kings are showing that "age matters not" in pro hockey

    Steven Lieberman, Culver City Observer|Oct 28, 2021

    Before the LA Kings hockey season started, I heard people saying that two-time, Stanley Cup champion veterans, Anze Kopitar (Captain) and Dustin Brown were too old and too slow to keep up with elite and young players on opposing teams. But they both proved them wrong by coming out of the gate with great energy at the home opener at STAPLES Center and scoring goals. Kopitar scoring three times, giving him a beloved hat trick. Lets not forget the credits and experience these two bring to the...

    Letters|Oct 28, 2021

    Dear Editor, The Culver City Democratic Club has pushed aside mainstream Democrats and is now nothing more than an echo chamber of YIMBYism and white privilege.

  • Rams go to Texas after beating the Detroit Lions

    Fred Altieri, Sports Reporter|Oct 28, 2021
