You print letters, which, like the news sections, ignore good, healthy and successful cities. When Culver City's Mayor Steve Gourley, on June 17 at the ceremonies marking the opening of Culver City's new City Hall, told us that "Culver City has a balanced budget, and this lovely new City Hall was completed two months early and under budget," you and your Westside editor chose to ignore the entire event. Do you consider bankruptcy and corruption the only newsworthy items? Where are your values?

The planned move of the Department of Motor Vehicles office in King City could be stalled by the change in leadership in Sacramento. DMV officials had hoped to move to a new home as early as this month, but Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's firing of DMV chief Steve Gourley last week has left plans in limbo. "Right now, we don't know where we are," said King City Manager Keith Breskin. "The new governor has appointed all new department heads, including the DMV."

A proposed temporary ban on all new commercial construction in Culver City has been given a chilly reception by three members of the City Council and a prominent local realtor. Councilman Jim Boulgarides sought the public and council's feedback on a moratorium idea, saying a temporary ban could help the city as it tries to develop a comprehensive growth-management plan.

The confrontational nature of Culver City politics of the past couple of years may be over if the new mayor's vow to take a "kinder, gentler" approach to governing is any indication. The Culver City City Council on Monday selected Ed Wolkowitz, a council member for the past two years, as mayor. Wolkowitz inherited the mayor's seat from Steve Gourley, who did not run for reelection.

I am appalled at what I read in your paper of the blatant power play performed by the Culver City Council on April 22. I saw this coming a year ago when they elected Steve Gourley as mayor when he wanted to be mayor this term instead. It is obvious that some of the council is still not listening to the people, even though we ousted two of the worst offenders, and another left who knew his time was up, and a clear victory was seen at the polls for Measure 1 (A height-limit initiative approved by voters last year)

The Culver City Council on Monday unanimously approved the environmental impact report for the proposed expansion of Sony Pictures Studios, paving the way for Planning Commission hearings on the project early next year. Sony Pictures Entertainment hopes to turn its 44.8-acre studio site in Culver City into a centralized campus for its far-flung media operations.

Culver City voters may be asked to support a City Council-backed plan to make it easier to terminate the police chief, fire chief and three other top-level managers. Department heads now are part of the city's Civil Service system, which insulates them--in the same way that a union would--from being fired without just cause. The proposed change, which could be placed on the ballot as early as November, would give City Council members the final say on when top managers should be asked to leave.

For months, the question has been on the table: Should Culver City take over local electric service from Southern California Edison? After a contentious four-hour public hearing Monday before the City Council, the question remains unanswered. Council members deadlocked over whether to even consider pursuing a takeover.
