True pioneers

The term “pioneer” frequently is used for recent arrivals who are considered to have made contributions to the community. Their contributions may be good, but these people are hardly “pioneers.” The names of the true pioneers are those shown on the 1906 Land Patent Map of the area.

The gay rights movement in America owes a debt of thanks to Calabasas High School.

Big pension feels sacrilegious

I was appalled as I read about Bob Brooks, the ex-sheriff of our county and his lawsuit to add $75,000 to his pension, as if $283,000 is not enough. Bob Brooks was an elder at my church, Hillcrest, when I attended there. What I clearly remember is that Bob and his wife looked down on me because of my loneliness […]
