Bike safety in Westlake Village

As a recreational cyclist with more than 200,000 miles on public roads, I commend the Acorn’s editorial “Bike lanes: Too much of a good thing?” Public grants and social agendas are secondary to guarding the safety of cyclists on shared roadways. On May 22, I had the dubious pleasure of speaking before the Westlake Village Public Safety Committee regarding plans […]

Dementia and UTIs

It seemed to happen overnight. Andrea entered the assisted living facility to join her 94-year-old mother for casino night. Unable to find her at the event, Andrea went to her mother’s room.

Upset with Acorn’s sportswriter

The Acorn is usually a great source of high school sports news and fair commentary. However, in the Oct. 27 issue, Eliav Appelbaum chose to make this a forum for his snarky, unprofessional comments about the Calabasas High School waterpolo team. Because of his wording, it is difficult to tell whether his criticisms are directed at Coach Russ, the team […]

Since 2007, Calabasas residents and entire communities have unequivocally and unanimously opposed his recommendations based on rights and options which he failed to represent.
