On the catwalk



I was the presenter for Mountains Restoration Trust at the recent wildlife crossing forum in Calabasas and was very pleased to see so much community interest. It’s also great that The Acorn is helping to stimulate awareness and discussion about the project as well. It is disappointing, however, that most of the article contains quotes from just two people who […]

Cal State faculty preparing for five-day strike




Although an independent fact-finder’s report isn’t due until next month, Cal State University faculty members have voted to stage a five-day strike in April unless a pay settlement is reached before then. If negotiators for the college system do not agree to the educators’ proposal for 5 percent across-the-board raises, faculty members will walk out April 13, 14, 15, 18 […]

Hotel opposition



I am writing in opposition to the Rondell Oasis Hotel on Las Virgenes Road, which comes before the Calabasas City Council again March 23. Calabasas does not need to trade its most valuable asset, its beautiful open space, for a project that is not compatible with our height regulations. When will our city leaders realize that we have enough revenue, […]

You snooze, you don’t lose—sleep on long flights, that is

Flying Squirrel

We’re about to begin Daylight Saving Time, that time of year when we trade an hour of sleep for more sunshine. Just like “ springing forward,” traveling on long flights can play tricks on our sleep rhythms, and it can take days to recover. I once flew nonstop from San Francisco to London. Our flight took off at 4 p.m. […]

Volunteers such as Chef Lala and the WOLF Crew assisted the students as they served pancakes and stocked a toppings bar. Fifth-grade teacher Julie Birkett supervised the kids. The event also had music, art […]

Park expansion



The article in the latest Acorn about the Rim of the Valley National Park was misleading in one very important respect. It gave voice to all of the interests supporting it and outlined all purported benefits, but failed to mention the substantial opposition to the plan. One objection is that the park service is many millions of dollars behind in […]
