Not happy with constant protest

By The Acorn Staff | February 25, 2021

For the people who were protesting at the corner of Westlake and Thousand Oaks boulevards on Feb. 20: Stay home; your presidential candidate lost and is living in exile in Florida. Time to move on or move to Florida. Give thanks to Gov. Gavin Newsom that you are alive. Be thankful that his COVID policies are keeping you alive so […]

Also goes for political signs

By The Acorn Staff | February 25, 2021

Enough with the political signs. Many residents like to make their political affiliations known to the rest of us by displaying signs on their property during the election season. In case they haven’t been paying attention, the election is over. The Christmas lights are back in the garage. Time for the signs and flags to get the hint. Rami BroshAgoura […]

‘Bleeding’ crisis headed here

By The Acorn Staff | February 25, 2021

Regarding your articles titled “Homelessness in Paradise;” thank you for alerting me about the homeless person living in Old Agoura Park. Homeless people have tried to pitch tents in Westlake Village. They were removed because, as I understand it, Westlake Village has a city ordinance that states no one in the city is allowed to sleep outside overnight. Agoura should […]

Stop catalytic converter theft

By The Acorn Staff | February 25, 2021

In the Conejo Valley, thieves steal Prius catalytic converters with impunity. I have had two catalytic converter thefts in 60 days in Morrison Ranch. My daughter saw the tail end of both crimes, but there was nothing we could do. When I brought the car into Caliber Collision, I was placed on a 60- to 90-day waitlist for a new […]

Textbook costs out of hand

By The Acorn Staff | February 25, 2021

Imagine paying $100 to access homework that is worth 20% of your chemistry grade. Oh wait, that is my reality as a college student today. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics recorded that from January 2006 to July 2016 college textbook prices increased 88%, and the College Board estimates students spend about $1,200 a year on books. As if paying […]

Developer offers more of the same

By The Acorn Staff | February 25, 2021

The developer for the West Village property is once again proposing to develop the land at Agoura Road on Las Virgenes, at the same location as they did with Canyon Oaks. However, little has changed with the new proposal No. 5. They’re still proposing to grade on Open Space-Development Restricted hillsides. Calabasas will lose 20 acres of the hillsides by […]

Says bridge costs $9 million per cat

By The Acorn Staff | February 25, 2021

Mr. Ramuno’s letter regarding cougars and the freeway bridge comes as no surprise. He takes the universal view of environmentalists that concerns for the environment apparently come above all else. I share such lofty views with him, but only up to a point. He states that cougars will eat my pets unless they can get to the other side of […]

State is favorite ‘whipping boy’

By The Acorn Staff | February 25, 2021

Talk radio loves to bad-mouth liberal policies claiming “high crime in Democrat run cities,” and California has been the favorite whipping boy of them all. Besides being completely bogus, this particular smear conveniently ignores that Democratic voting areas fuel a whopping two-thirds of the American economy. Republican-led parts of the United States, on the other hand, are remarkably unproductive. The […]

SHERIFF’S BLOTTER

By The Acorn Staff | February 25, 2021

Agoura Hills A thief broke into a car parked on Colodny Drive on Feb. 14 and stole a leather bag containing two pairs of athletic shoes, gym clothes, costume jewelry and two pairs of earrings; a second bag that contained clothes; and a third bag that contained a laptop, an iPad, two lock boxes and a key fob, all worth […]

More vaccines and falling case rate good for schools

By The Acorn Staff | February 25, 2021

Los Angeles and Ventura counties have reached COVID-19 case levels that allow for an immediate reopening of all elementary schools. Both counties will begin vaccinating teachers starting this Monday. State public health guidelines say elementary schools can reopen when a county’s adjusted COVID-19 case rate falls below 25 per 100,000 residents and stays there for five consecutive days. In Ventura […]
