The Hate Shleppers, Mitchell and Bass, Are Popping Off Again


Editor's Essays

The distinction between U.S. Rep. Karen (Heaven Help Us) Bass (D-Culver City/Crenshaw) and a crudely carpentered door, fittingly, is indiscernible. Her mind and a door are of a single piece. Open and shut. If the woman possesses, or can define, “nuance,” she has kept it well-hidden, another task far beyond her ken.read

Lack of Annual Trimming Program Is at Base of Ficus Tree Crisis


Letters

Third in a series. By Jerry Green. Here is the speech I gave during public comments at the last council meeting. I invite the other speakers of our (Carlson Park Coalition) group to also share their speeches with you as well. And I request that Liz and Steve provide you with a copy of the petition signed by 125 homeowners in our 4 block area as well as any updates since the council meeting.read

When an Addict Seeks Help, You Ask About His Suggestibility


Op-Ed

A client came to see me a year ago with a sugar addiction. Hooked, and she could not break the habit. Hypnosis might help, she suspected. She gave it a try. An important aspect for a hypnotherapist is to understand a person’s suggestibility. That helps create the changes a client wants. (Suggestibility is how we communicate.) There are two forms ...read

So Far Only Three People Favor a Church Traffic Study


Letters

By Les Greenberg. A “freaking traffic study” will set the taxpayers of Culver City back much more than the measly $2 letter-writer George Morton wishes to contribute. Why waste even his $2 when the traffic engineer repeatedly has rejected the Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church’s requests for such a study?read

Ficus Trees Crisis: City’s Favorite Response Is to Do a Study


Letters

By Jerry Green. Second in a series. Our group was formed to protest the damage done to our neighborhood by the city's ficus trees and to state our feeling that the city's response to our pleas over a number of years now have been met with a blind eye and a deaf ear. I am part of the Carlson Park Coalition, and I addressed the mayor and the City Council on Nov. 10. The ficus trees were planted by the city, or contractors hired by the city, many years ago. They are on city property. Their roots lift up our sidewalks, making the walks unsafe for ...read

Why Is the City Council Not Interested in Ficus Trees’ Issue?


Letters

By Jerry Green. First of two parts. Based on the background of how thefrontpageonline.com acted as an activist news outlet for the events earlier this year surrounding the Culver City Ice Arena, maybe it will be interested in publishing issues of the ficus trees, including the apparent non-response of the City Council.read

Timing of Obama Oration Was the Most Intriguing Part


Editor's Essays

The breathtaking arrogance of President Obama, frequently found crouching off the living room behind lace curtains, was on chest-pounding display in his gimmick-strangled, easily dissected Free the Illegal Aliens speech last evening. The most revealing aspect of the worst 14 minutes in recent Presidential history, however, was his timing.read

I Sit Here Fatigued by the Church-Farragut Controversy


Letters

By George Morton. Jeepers creepers! I am tired of reading about this. Just do the freaking traffic study. If it is as bad as the Farragut Drive neighbors contend, it will ...read

Low Fat Ice Cream -- Hmmm


Op-Ed

After five attempts at making low-fat ice cream, I succeeded. Today I scooped out some strawberry ice cream. No, it did not taste the same as Haagen-Dazs or Good Humor. It had no minute ice chips in it, just smooth and somewhat tasty. Here’s my low-fat, low-sugar recipe ...read

Despite Media Moral Equivalency, Israelis Are Strongly Upbeat


Op-Ed

Dateline Jerusalem - I am home after a 15½-hour non-stop flight from Los Angeles to Tel Aviv. For the first time in 7½ years, I was not physically searched at the airport. One of my two pieces of luggage was physically inspected, though, according to a card from TSA left inside my suitcase. Either security is getting lax -- I do not think that is the case -- or they finally realize I am just a grandmother, not a threat to anyone.read
