Culver City Fire Department Offers Free CPR Training Thursday, June 2

Posted by Scupine on May 25, 2016 at 6:30am 0 Comments

Join the Culver City Fire Department for free sidewalk CPR event on Thursday, June 2, from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm at the Starbucks Coffee Courtyard at 9718 Washington Blvd. in downtown Culver City.

Can you spare 5 minutes to learn how to save someone’s life? Since 88% of cardiac arrests occur at home, the life you save with CPR is likely to be someone you know and love. Bystander CPR (hands-only) provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest can up to triple a victim’s chance of survival, yet only 32% of cardiac arrest victims get CPR from a bystander. Many are concerned they might do something wrong, but the only way to make things worse is to do nothing at all.

Recommended for ages 5 to 95. The first 100 participants will be entered in a drawing to win a disaster kit for…

On April 15, more than 100 Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE) volunteers participated in Sony Global Volunteer Day, an annual event in which Sony employees around the world give back to their communities.  This year the volunteers took their shovels, paint brushes, and elbow grease to Linwood E.

This Saturday is a Big Night for Gallery Openings in Culver City

Posted by Scupine on April 22, 2016 at 6:30am 0 Comments

The Los Angeles Times recently highlighted two Culver City galleries openings this Saturday, April 23: those at Kapeikin Gallery & Luis De Jesus Los Angeles.

Here's what Times writer Carolina A. Miranda said about Amy Park's “Ed Ruscha’s Every Building on the Sunset Strip,” at Kopeikin Gallery:

Park takes Ruscha’s iconic 1966 photo book, which documented every building on West Hollywood’s Sunset Strip, and re-creates it as a series of watercolor paintings — a 97-foot immersive environment that wraps the gallery and therefore the viewer. It’s a new way of seeing a familiar…

Swim meets open to all adults

Posted by Elizabeth Artley on April 21, 2016 at 12:45pm 0 Comments

Many remember scoring that goal or winning a race fondly from childhood. But growing up doesn’t have to mean the end of team sports! Two swimmers, Rossella Pescatori and Chris Wall, have kept competing as adults, which helps them both remember how they fell in love with the water in the first place.

 

Pescatori, 45, was heartbreakingly close to competing in the Olympics for her native Italy. She placed third in the 200-meter breaststroke in the trials both in 1988 and in 1992-just missing the team by one spot! Now, the mother and part-time swim coach approaches competitions differently.

 “The atmosphere at the local meets is…

Notes From Your City Historian: Spring 2016

The first “historic marker” to commemorate a historic site in Culver City, was placed on the colonnade entry of Thomas Ince’s first studio (now Sony Pictures) by the Native Daughters of the Golden West.  Our own Clarita Marquez Young was a part of that, years before our historical society was established.
