Word leaks out about school

Last week’s Acorn article about the water shortage in Oak Park coincided with the arrival in the mail of a notice from the Oak Park Water Service informing Oak Park residents of restrictions being placed on landscape irrigation and a series of fines for violating the restrictions. It seems like the perfect time for me to point out that Brookside […]

The Flying Squirrel

Checking into hotels There’s an old joke about hotels that goes something like this: A man calls an oceanfront resort to ask where it’s located. “It’s just a stone’s throw away from the beach,” the hotel manager tells him. “But how will I recognize it?” asks the man. The manager replies, “It’s the one with all the broken windows.” When […]

Family and food a big part of celebration

Family, food and traditions make the Jewish holidays special for Bonnie and Craig Kronfeld of Oak Park. Each year, the Kronfeld clan collaborates on menus featuring recipes that have been passed down through the family for generations. “For our family, the Jewish holidays are about spending time together. . . .” Bonnie Kronfeld said. “We typically spend the holidays with […]

Eagles soar into fog of Coastal Canyon League

On the first day of summer conditioning four years ago, Lily Rudnick was just another incoming freshman. She wondered how a 13-yearold like herself could stand out from the crowd. Was she going to make the cut for the Oak Park High girls’ volleyball team? The very first opportunity Rudnick had to hit the ball, she pegged a girl in […]

Readers think deputy should be punished

The deputy who ran over a cyclist in a bike lane and is not facing charges is abhorrent. Involuntary manslaughter is the unlawful killing of another without malice aforethought. In a simpler term, that just means you killed someone accidentally. But there is criminal liability. The D.A.’s position that they couldn’t prove criminal negligence beyond a reasonable doubt would be […]

Hot Flashes

Beautiful dreamer “Yaya, tell me a story.” The time? 3 a.m. Like most people, I was asleep in Yayaland when the aroma of tootie-fruity Pepsodent suggested a 6-year-old was sitting on my bod. “Yaya, wake up.” I hear you and feel you, you rotten little twerp . . . all 65 pounds of chicken nuggets and vanilla milkshakes. There you […]

Chabad receives new Torah ark

A 100-year-old Torah ark will be inaugurated for ritual use by the Chabad Jewish Center of Newbury Park at a formal ceremony, followed by lunch and festivities, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sun., Sept. 14 at the center, 350 Via Las Brisas.

Agoura Starbucks robbed

Starbucks at the Agoura City Mall on Kanan Road and Thousand Oaks Boulevard in Agoura Hills was robbed at about 5:30 a.m. on Tues., Sept. 16, sheriff’s deputies said. Sgt. Tui Wright of the Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station said an adult Hispanic male with a slight build entered the coffee house in the early morning hours and held three employees […]

Voter apathy

The L.A. City Council is promoting the idea of paying people to vote by means of a lottery. I thought this happened only in places like Chicago. People that have to be paid should not be voting. Some people said we need more days to vote. These people are not intelligent enough to know that they can vote by absentee […]
