Fourth grade teacher Shonda O’Neal from Farragut Elementary in Culver City Unified School District shared, “Several weeks into our new school year a new student joined our classroom. Her family has had challenges that have impacted her confidence and self-concept. It has been a goal of mine to highlight her contributions in class, put her in leadership roles and send a message to her that she is important in our classroom family and her voice, ideas, thoughts......matter. When her writing piece was selected and performed (by Story Pirates) she could not believe it. The joy was overwhelming. We all celebrated her and she truly received our pride in her work. She was proud of herself. Thank you. We all needed it.”

This Saturday, the 7th of January, is gearing up to be a big night at the Culver City Art District. I've already received show opening announcements for the Kopeikin Gallery, Luis De Jesus, and Blum & Poe. And if I know these galleries, that means there are going to be plenty more.
A new show by Ardeshir Tabrizi, called "Observations in Linear Time," is opening at Kopeikin. The image above is from that show, which, according to the gallery's website,"explores the passage of time through a photographic study and accompanied by a site-specific sound installation."
Blum & Poe is presenting a show by artist Sam Durant called "Build Therefore Your Own World."
The openings generally run from 6ish to 8ish, and are always free and a lot of fun. See you…

After suffering a heart attack six years ago, Jerome Smith’s heart only pumps at 34 percent of a healthy one. But that hasn’t kept the 73-year-old from blasting away at SCAQ Masters swim workouts. And now he plans to compete in his first swim meet in 15 years.
Smith said he is looking forward to completing a goal, as well as the experience of swimming against himself and the clock.
After his 2009 heart attack in Bikram Yoga, Smith went three minutes without a pulse. But one week later he was back in the water.
And his healthy lifestyle will go far in keeping him out of the ambulance; a Mayo Clinic study showed that only by moving at your…Continue
