"I would like to invite you all to a developer's community meeting at Vet's Auditorium on June 21st at 7pm regarding a new project being proposed at 11281 Washington Place, at the intersection of Washington Place and Sawtelle Blvd.
"I have been working with a number of local residents that live around the proposed project.
It is a long time coming, considering that the property has been vacant for more than 20 years. But we are watching it very closely because we would like to have a development that is fitting to our neighborhood. The development proposed plans show that it will be five stories in height with retail stores on the ground floor. Do not be mistaken, we want the property to be…Continue

Shot on location, the surreal photographs utilize different techniques to achieve the vibrant colors and situations.

The LA Weekly recently ran down the Top Ten ice cream and gelato shops in Los Angeles, and Culver City's Coolhaus made the list.
Here's what the article has to say about Coolhaus:
True to its name, everything is cool about Coolhaus: the handwritten names on the ice cream case; the young, stylish servers; its roaming food trucks; and flavors with names like Cuban cigar and Peking duck. The shop is petite, and fewer than 10 people in line equals a crowd. But the ice cream sandwich, with two chunky, chewy homemade cookies on each end, is worth standing in line for. It's massive, with ice cream bulging out the sides, and makes a perfect treat for two. Popular…
Culver City Council and the Culver City Disability Advisory Committee, through the Parks, Recreation & Community Services Department, would like to honor one individual and one business during activities planned for “Disability Awareness Month” in October 2016.
The following are the nomination criteria:
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…Continue
