Fan says: ‘Lets go Rams!’

A big shout out to the Conejo Valley Rams Club and its awesome founder, Rob Jaffe, who has been instrumental in fostering local support for our Super Bowl-bound Rams. Growing up, my father was a huge Dodgers and Rams fan. I bled blue too, but I didn’t catch on to football until my son played in the Agoura High band […]

Pot needs more scientific study

An irony of the current buzz and hype about CBD and cannabis products is that the proponents are often the very same people who are so outspoken about human activity and climate change. I admit, I am one of them. However, science is science. Science is apolitical. The rules of physics, chemistry, biology and statistics are identical for all subjects. […]

CPA alliance seems dubious

We did not know that some entity called the Clean Power Alliance was taking over our electrical power service, and that the City of Thousand Oaks not only voted for this insanity but chose the “100 percent renewable energy” option, which, of course, does not exist. (Agoura Hills chose 36 percent for its required clean energy purchases.) Wind and solar […]

Balanced budget

Bezos, Buffet and Gates have more money than God and are always looking for ways to use it. The talking heads on TV are always looking for “common ground” and saying common ground would be a good starting point for any discussion on something to be accomplished. So I say, let’s find a point of common ground, if there is […]

Clean it up

In response to the recent article about the Clean Power Alliance, I would like to also bring attention to Environment California’s efforts to reduce our plastic waste statewide. We should start by banning cups and take-out containers made of polystyrene, or what’s better known as Styrofoam. Our economy encourages us to make, use and dispose of consumer items as fast […]

Let’s take off the boxing gloves

I’ve read the letters to the editor in The Acorn for years about how leaders of either political party are destroying our country, bankrupting our country, etc. The intensity of opinion is evident. The support from facts is not. Opponents of those in power will have you believe that all the problems in the world are because of those in […]

Parks disputed

This letter is in response to Supervisor Linda Parks’ op-ed about the proposed wildlife corridor. On one point, we agree with Parks’ guest opinion in The Acorn: crossing freeways and highways in Ventura County are deadly for mountain lions and other wildlife. The problem with the county’s ill-conceived wildlife corridor solution is that it does nothing to facilitate road crossings […]
