Dust-up with Elton Gallegly

I have read with interest the articles and letters in the Acorn about Congressman Elton Gallegly taking Cal Lutheran University to court. CLU has been and continues to be an important part of our community and the region. Unfortunately, the lawsuit reveals that something has gone terribly wrong at CLU. I’m appalled that legal action would be required to hold […]

Debating the scriptures

I am pondering Ms. Carpenter’s Roots of Faith piece on humility and obedience. I understand that there are limits to the quantity of words for the space provided. I don’t know where her understanding of the Bible is, but I would hope (wish) she would use her quotes in their full context. She uses some “what if” statements, but to […]

Memory needs to be jogged

Another letter from a right winger recently in The Acorn, once again, makes me shake my head in wonder: I wonder how they can twist the truth to fit their agenda of hate. The latest example of this propaganda is Mr. Goldenfeld and his letter in the Dec. 16 edition of The Acorn. Beating his chest in moral indignation at […]

The case for alternative fuel

Americans are acutely aware when the cost of gasoline rises and falls. We are a commuter society and spend a significant portion of our earnings filling up our tanks. Those of us who live in California pay the highest prices in the nation, approximately $5 per gallon these days. I’m an environmentalist who observes the catastrophic effects climate breakdown is […]

Boeing being loose with truth

In the article “Film brings fresh eyes to field lab cleanup struggle,” Boeing’s representative explicitly lied when they claimed “there is no evidence linking contamination at the (SSFL) to cancer clusters in the surrounding neighborhoods.” Dr. Morgenstern’s federally funded study demonstrated a 60% higher incidence rate of cancer in the population living within two miles of the Santa Susana Field […]

Giving thanks to those who give

We wish to acknowledge the following for providing over 300 Thanksgiving dinners: St. Maximilian Catholic Church, the management and employees of Costco in Westlake Village, Anthony and Beth Zeolla, as well as those who wish to remain anonymous. The recipients were St. Michael’s School in Los Angeles, the Guadalupe food bank in Canoga Park and the Calvary Community Church food […]

When it rains, please give sprinklers a break

I am so happy it rained today (Thurs., Dec. 9). Yet, tonight as I walked my dogs at Forest Cove Park, I was disheartened and shocked to see the sprinklers on near the basketball court. It is an utter shame that the City of Agoura Hills can allow this to happen. We are in a severe drought, City of Agoura […]

Fearful about growth of anti-Semitism

The centers of anti-Semitism in America are our college and university campuses. After decades of left-wing academia, with Saudi Arabia and Qatar spending billions funding “chairs of learning,” is it any wonder our university graduates, who are today’s policy makers and influencers, are as self-abasing and anti-Semitic as they are? Radical Islam, promoted by the Nation of Islam, Black Lives […]

Love, from Whizin market

My daughters and I visited the farmers market at Whizin Market Square last Saturday and want to highly recommend it. It was nicely laid out with a large variety of booths from which to choose all types of food and other items. The vendors showing and selling their wares were very friendly and helpful. We came home with some wonderful […]
