Ask seniors what housing features they want, need

Builders gather suggestions

With an eye toward a potential future project, Many Mansions and the Area Housing Authority of the County of Ventura paid a visit to Senior Concerns to gather suggestions for features seniors would want to see in a new complex of independent senior apartments. We were delighted to know that a builder had an interest in what seniors would want […]

The price of gasoline will drive you nuts

For many California voters, this is the summer of their discontent. And in the coming election, they just might do something about it. Motorists hit the road this week to celebrate the Fourth of July—and they got hit with sticker shock. Drivers shelled out a nationwide average of $2.90 per gallon for regular gasoline, the highest Independence Day price since […]


Pros and cons of the Jewish eruv

I am unhappy that the city of Agoura Hills recently permitted a new eruv. It is ugly. It can kill birds. I do not want to cross a religious boundary of any kind to walk to the grocery store.

As a successful American business person who emigrated from Iran in the 1970s, I hold dearly the legal and ethical protections of […]

Why so many break-ins?

As a frequent reader of the Sheriff’s Blotter column in The Acorn, I am continually aghast at the high number of reports of car break-ins—absolutely amazing. For instance, this week’s column reported 13 car thefts out of 19 items. Three of those thefts were from unlocked cars and another three were from cars that had no signs of forced entry. […]

Enjoy Independence Day, but use good judgment

Next Wednesday is the Fourth of July and as always there will be no shortage of things to do: picnics, parades, concerts and, of course, fireworks. Any conversation about Independence Day must begin with a reminder that fireworks aren’t just illegal, but dangerous. In Ventura County, fire department officials remind residents that anyone found in possession of fireworks or caught […]
