Curmudgeon Corner - Another School Shooting

My Rooney thoughts for October 26, 2014

Well, it’s happened again, here in the Northwest.  In Marysville, Washington at a local high school a distraught and misguided young man walked into the school cafeteria with a .40 caliber handgun and killed the girl who had refused his amorous advances.  Additionally, he wounded two others students before turning the gun on himself.  It’s a tragedy that’s being played out way too often, not only in Washington but all over the…

What's the Best Bar in Culver City?

Posted by Scupine on October 27, 2014 at 6:00am 0 Comments

Recently, nominated Bigfoot West (on Venice) as the Best Bar in Culver City. Here's what they had to say about the watering hole: 

Both Bigfoot locations look like someone took Yogi Bear's Yosemite ranger stations and plopped 'em down right in the middle of the city. The Westside location has a couple things on its side, though: there aren't a ton of other bars in the area, and it's way bigger than its Atwater brother. Also: there's a BBQ-bombed drink.

From what I gather, this is a hip choice, but I've had a better times at perhaps a half-dozen other bars throughout the city. In fact, my nomination goes to ... the bar at the Culver Hotel. 

What do you…


Where Am I in Culver City? Game 082 Solution

Periodically, I post a picture of something in Culver City that is 'hiding in plain sight.' Last week I asked: Do you know where in Culver City these "Waves" are?

One Culver CIty Times member -- Doug Lemon, naturally -- correctly identified the pic as being part of the sign for Waves Nails at the corner of Clarington and Venice Blvd. 

The Waves Nails Yelp reviews are a little all over the place, but the…

“Perfect Timing” Saves Taxpayers $10 Million in CCUSD Bond Issuance

Posted by Geoff Maleman on October 28, 2014 at 9:17am 0 Comments

CCUSD recently completed a highly successful sale of its $26.5 million Election of 2014 General Obligation Bonds, Series A (Culver City Unified School District General Obligation Bond Program). The bonds were well-received in the market, and the timing of the sale could not have been better. The District entered the bond market one day after the lowest interest rate levels of 2014 year-to-date. Focus on Federal Reserve policy, mixed economic data, uncertainty in Europe, and other geopolitical issues created a “flight to quality” into U.S. Treasuries and municipal bonds.


“We were incredibly fortunate that on our bond sale date, the bond market reached its lowest level of the year,” said Mike Reynolds, CCUSD’s Assistant Superintendent, Business Services. “Our original projections for the interest owed over the life of these bonds was $50 million, but because of the timing, taxpayers will only owe $40 million. We were also extremely fortunate in having the expert…

David Lloyd's New Paintings opens at Klowden Mann gallery in Culver City this Saturday, October 25. Lloyd is a Los Angeles-based artist, and his new work is a combination of "formal abstraction and narrative irreverence."

Continues the gallery's web site:
