New mask order has to go

It’s more than just wearing a mask inside again, L.A. County Health. It’s a broadside interruption of the resumption of handshakes and hugs. All the suspect glances had vanished. The distance bridged. We felt comfortable with each other again, friends, family and strangers. The masked were no longer mocked, and the maskless no longer scowled at. The DTLA streets were […]

Debate over ‘white privilege’

This is in response to the July 15 letter “White privilege” by Brian Goldenfeld. There is white privilege, but many of us are in a white bubble and don’t see it. If you never saw the difference and thought that all the Blacks want is what we have, you are wrong. I am white and not until I took a […]

Can’t deny Gascon mandate

Last week the Agoura Hills City Council had on its agenda a resolution to vote “no confidence” in Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon. I spoke in opposition to that item. District Attorney Gascon was elected in November 2020 with 2-million votes, 53.5% of the total vote. He ran on a campaign to change the system that often incarcerates […]

Keep an eye on housing laws

In the next month the California State Assembly is scheduled to vote on two bills, SB 9 and SB 10, both of which, if passed, will forever change our neighborhoods as we know them now. SB 9 would allow lots zoned for single-family use to be split into two lots with each lot having two residential units built on it. […]

Race theory hijacked and used to attack legit education

EDITORIAL

In recent months, a heated debate has arisen over how the complicated history of race in America should be taught in our local public schools. At the center of the controversy is critical race theory, an academic concept developed in the 1970s that frames American history through the lens of systemic racism. The coursework is usually studied at the college […]

More pressure on electrical grid

The July 8 issue of The Acorn reported that the Agoura Hills City Council voted that all new construction in Agoura Hills use electrical power and not natural gas. Before they passed this law, I wish they had read the story in the July 8 issue of the Wall Street Journal. In great detail, this story stated that according to […]

Good move by city banning gas

The Agoura Hills City Council made the right decision on clean energy. Local city councils, like ours, can often serve as incubators of good ideas that will be a benefit to our community and our state. Since we incorporated nearly 40 years ago, I can think of at least three ideas, all very controversial, that were in our best interest. […]

Council member comments

I laughed aloud while reading the statements attributed to a local politician who is apparently a disciple of Frank Luntz and toeing the party line regarding greenhouse gases, irrespective of the lack of evidence on many of the positions taken. The Acorn quoted this member of our Agoura Hills City Council as saying, “My concern is the state telling us […]

‘White privilege’ an ‘evil lie’

The radical left, currently the dominant faction of the Democratic Party, wants to create narratives and rewrite history in order to distort, obfuscate, confuse and destroy. They talk of “white privilege,” “white supremacy,” “systemic racism” as weapons of information warfare against both liberals, conservatives and the American experiment. They paint America as irredeemably evil from its founding. With a good […]
