Very nice. The only flaw is that the links to the websites for Kentwood Players and Theatre Palisades have added hyphens, which makes them bad links. Morgan-Wixson's link is fine with the hyphen. Removing the hyphen from the links for Kentwood Players and Theatre Palisades will correct them.

I too am a Manhattan Beach resident so it really saddens me to hear that the city is standing in the way of unifying a family in need. He served his country and now his country needs to serve him. I understand that the city has building restrictions for a reason, but I think these are special circumstances relating to a medical condition. Being a resident, I really hope that the city I love finds it in their heart to reconsider due to the unusual circumstances.

Thanks for publishing this article. Michael is a terrific person who suffers from ALS. As a military veteran, he shouldn't have to fight with his beloved city of Manhattan Beach to live in his own home. C'mon Manhattan Beachâ€”join hands with a veteran, his wife and his friends to waive your rigid parking ordinances!

Carlene Brown's very long letter criticizing the opponents to rent control in Culver City starts out by calling the opponents of rent control names: "right-wing ideologues," a term she never defines. She also states and/or implies (which is actually a projection of her conduct) that these so-called "right wingers" intent is "divide our countryâ€ť and conduct what she calls a "cultural civil war." As a true "progressive" warrior, she says that "right wingers" are "not caring" or "responsible" but in fact are against "responsible, caring, families." What does being "caring" or "responsible" have to do with rent control? Her true position, simply put, is that she supports the Marxist policy of the state (the City in this instance) confiscating real property interests to provide cheap rent for renters who allegedly cannot afford Culver City rent. Ms. Brown (1) does not describe the real issue (2) proposes a divisive course of action (confiscation of property) and (3) calls people names and put them down because they are against the confiscation of property.
Shame on the parkers who jeer at a neighbor who is standing up for parking restrictions. Why doesn't the city council ask the police to respect Cary Anderson when he calls about violators? Why doesn't the police dept have volunteer officers who are ready and able to take care of parking violations and other non violent tasks?

Thanks for giving a young journalist a chance to share his interesting first-person news. I found this article very well written and enjoyed reading it.

Ms. Tidwell, et.al,
The Churchâ€™s request to the City Council to reconsider a change of parking restrictions on Farragut St. (which is currently by permit only Monday through Friday from 8am to 10pm.) to 2-hour parking 8am to 10pm, Monday through Friday is something short of â€śneighborlyâ€ť. Ms. Tidwill and others seem to want to paint us as entitled or privileged for wanting to maintain our parking restrictions. What Ms. Tidwell does not seem to understand is that, without restrictions during the week, our street would be packed to the gills all day with the parked cars of teachers, parents and visitors of the child development center, Farragut Elementary, CC Middle School, CC High School, The Spot, the nail salon, the apartments on the East Side of Overlandâ€¦. We are at a unique confluence of parking and traffic density due to all the surrounding competing needs. There is a reason our street was the first to have such parking restrictions in the City. We had the greatest need for such restrictions. This need has only increased as fewer kids walk to school today than they did 25-30 years ago. The claim that we are impacting the services at Grace is specious at best. The Meals on Wheels have always been issued the appropriate parking passes to park on Farragut as they need to. Plenty of parking exists a block away for other groups meeting in the evening hours (at the Adult School on Overland and at the Farragut/Middle School lot) Iâ€™m rather surprised a church involved in so many â€śgood worksâ€ť has failed so miserably in reaching out and discussing this with their neighbors in a reasonable way. Shame!
Nadine Province Says:
Just a quick note -- you write, "race Lutheran, which is on nearby Overland Avenue has *limited* parking [emphasis mine]" -- in fact, Grace Lutheran does not have a *single* parking space for the four church congregations which meet there, and the *49* weekly meetings, in addition to supporting the church's active commercial solicitation for location filming, and even more events. For the record, Farragut Drive has no restrictions all day Saturday and all day Sunday, and those with a handicap placard may park there any time they like. The 10700 block of Farragut is the most beleaguered of Culver City residential streets, bearing traffic for the Child Development Center, Farragut Elementary, Culver City Middle School, Culver City High School, Culver City Adult School, The Spot Cafe, the nail salon, and, of course, GLEC. Thanks!
It's unclear to me how those 1,400 extra students actually help Culver City. They help the teachers union of course because they provide employment. But would closing schools and just teaching kids from Culver City actually be that bad for the kids from Culver City? As it is, Culver City parents do their best to move their kids to the better elementary schools in the district just to avoid El Rincon. Many of the parents whose kids are forced to go to El Rincon would be delighted if it closed and they got to send their kids to Farragut, or Linwood Howe. The test scores there reflect pretty well what happens when you admit LAUSD students in just to keep teachers employed, against the interests of the actual kids of actual residents in the districts.

Ed, I've been a CC resident for the past seven years. I just started reading the CC News a few months ago and really enjoy your column. I'm so glad to hear meditation defined in a way I can relate and participate. Thank you. Is there any way to get to your archived columns? Thank you.

Really good article about a really terrific person! I have no experience with Lynda's type of hypnotherapy but I have experience with Lynda as a person and I think she's terrific! And she loves opera!
Rabbi Miriam Hamrell, Ahavat Torah Congreation Says:
Linda is a leader in the healing profession.
She has a kind, and a very large heart. I have seen her hypnosis helps people who struggled for years with issues that only Linda was able to solve and heal. I highly recommend her.
