  • On Day II, It Seemed that the 2022 Genesis Golf Invitational Would Become the Joaquin Neimann Run Away and Hide. 

    Robert Butchko, Observer Staff Writer|Feb 21, 2022

    Midway through the second round, it looked like the 2022 Genesis Invitational was going to turn into the Joaquin Neimann Run Away and Hide. Chile's best-known PGA tour member-and, other than Mito Pereira, its only one-opened the tournament with a record-tying first round score and promptly broke the rule that the hardest thing to do was follow up a great round with a good one. Neimann's second round was not better than his first round, but it was exactly as good. His second 8-eight 63 in a row...

  • Swiss Immigrant Who Never Worked In US Asks About Social Security

    Rusty Gleer, Association of Mature American Citizens|Feb 21, 2022

    Dear Rusty: I am originally from Switzerland. I moved to the States, got married in 2012, and became a US Citizen in 2016. I never worked in the United States but have 44 years of Social Security contribution in Switzerland and have received a pension from there since I turned 62 (I'm now 64). Is it correct that I cannot apply for Social Security here in the States on my husband's account unless he is collecting his Social Security benefit? He will turn 62 this year but is still working and...

    Whitney Scott Bain, SM Resident|Feb 21, 2022

    Mayor Sheds Crocodile Tears While Ruining Santa Monica Permanently for Residents: Letter from Santa Monica Voter Boo-hoo-boo, Mayor Himmelrich. Cry me a river with your comments. If you and this City Council were doing your jobs for the people who voted for you, the citizens of Santa Monica would not be upset with your inadequate performance. You close off Parking Structure 3 so no one can park there, especially on Wednesdays during the Farmer's Market. People can't go to the Promenade from...

  • Proclaiming "Peace In Our Time," Biden Agrees to Meet with Putin in Paris

    Stan Greene, Observer Staff Writer|Feb 21, 2022

    The AP Reports that in a last minute meeting brokered by French President Emmanuel Macron, US President Joseph R. Biden has agreed to meet with Russian leader Vladimir Putin, possibly in Paris, in a summit next week. Perhaps I'm being a bit harsh. But the comparison between Biden and 1938's British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, are obvious. In 1938, Chamberlain agreed to meet Hitler, and came away with a deal allowing the Fuhrer to walk away with the Sudetenland, the German speaking part...
