Weil, it's been more than a month now since they closed the Expo Line lot—which was plumb full every weekday as well as for sporting events at the Coliseum and for other special events such as the Women's March. And yet there's still no construction happening.

So it's got bona fides.
Bäcoshop is described as a "fast casual" version of Centeno's food, highlighted by "bäcos": sandwiches made with his…Continue
More than 70 Culver City residents met Sunday night at two different locations to discuss strategies for helping progressive candidates take back the U.S. House of Representatives in 2018. Local elected officials were among those in attendance.
The Culver City meetings were among 25 other meetings in the Los Angeles area organized by a new group called Swing Left. The group’s purpose is to help Americans who live in non-swing districts provide support to their fellow citizens living in swing districts, i.e. congressional districts in which the elected representative won by a relatively small margin.
Many of the Swing Left groups in Los Angeles, including the two Culver City groups, will focus their efforts on helping voters in the 25th Congressional District unseat their…Continue
