Stay-at-home gets panned

First we were told the shutdown would last 14 days so we could “bend the curve.” Somehow that became extended to mid-May. Will it end then? Probably not. The politicians were never so surprised to see the people so willingly give up their rights and civil liberties. Why give them back so easily ? Never let a crisis go to […]

Says cure worse than disease

It appears some of your readers are confused about the damage shutting down an economy is doing to the country. Several years ago, some researchers did a study and concluded that every $6 million removed from the economy kills someone, statistically. Another study came out shortly after and said the number is $7 million. You can’t say who will die, […]

Stronger as one

What we are dealing currently with has a deep meaning for society. We are presented with a unique opportunity we never had before. We have the chance to better ourselves; go back to simpler ways; contact old friends we never had time to call; spend more time with our kids, time we complained was scarce; check on neighbors we never […]

The China blame

There is a lot of truth in the recognition that China has bled off a large part of the American economy. But it is not the whole truth. China did not do this alone. China would not be taking all our business if American companies were not giving it to them. China can’t be expected to turn away the American […]

Urias arrest

Regarding the arrest of 5-Star office manager Mary Urias, what a disturbing result of bad/ignorant management. As I read The Acorn’s reporting, I could not believe that this embezzlement was allowed to exist for so long. Perhaps the management of 5-StarTheatricals ought to put on a free performance highlighting the employee-vetting steps they did not take. John EverettAgoura Hills

Opinions about Measure V bond

I just finished reading Gary Mason’s comments on bond overreach for Measure V, the $198-million school bond issue that was defeated in the last election. He is spot-on minus one main point that may have caused its defeat. Next time, exempt senior citizens who are on fixed incomes and who already put their children through the school system at great […]

Yemen war

As of right now, Yemen is having a humanitarian crisis due to the Yemeni Civil War. Additionally, the health system in Yemen is ruined and has remained destroyed for more than four years. Today, the war continues. You wish that life can be easy; however, it is not. And hearing about this news and writing about it, I feel devastated. […]

Triunfo rate hike

Triunfo Water flushed citizens down the sewer. In today’s horrible coronavirus pandemic, another utility has bashed us hurting tax payers with a more than 15% next year increase, and over 87% five years from now. We all need to write a protest letter to kill these increases in April to: Clerk of the Board, 1001 Partridge Drive, Ste. 150, Ventura, […]

Worried about farmers markets

I am a resident of Calabasas along with other seniors and residents of the Motion Picture’s Wasserman Campus. I am concerned that the farmers market on the corner of El Canon Avenue and Calabasas Road is operating on Saturdays. They have reported to the City Council of Calabasas that they will be allowing 90 to 100 people to shop and […]

Economy versus social distancing

I was gobsmacked reading Eugene Tkachenko’s letter in the April 9 Acorn. It appears that he believes Ventura County only losing six people to date to the COVID-19 virus does not justify the loss of jobs versus people. Really? How many people does he think would justify social distancing and mitigation measures we’ve taken? 60? 600? 6,000? The fact that […]
