Reasons why Cornerstone is wrong

Your glowing endorsement of the Cornerstone Project and the City Council’s approval last week notwithstanding, there are many glaring problems with the development. Here are a few of the many points of interest: Agoura Village/Cornerstone is an intensive development across the freeway from the Agoura Hills center of population, which illustrates questionable urban or suburban planning. Despite cloaking it in […]

Local doctors head for a mission in Honduras

When Dr. Edward Chambers embarked on his first medical mission to Honduras five years ago, he was stunned by the hundreds of patients who traveled for hours on foot to see him. “It was extraordinary and nothing like I experienced before,” said Chambers, a pediatrician at Los Robles Hospital and Medical Center in Thousand Oaks. “Although there are people in […]

Development not needed

I take to task the recent Acorn editorial on the new development planned at Agoura and Cornell roads. That gateway, heading south on Cornell, represents for many cyclists—myself included— visitors and others a serene and peaceful entrance to the beautiful Paramount Ranch, Mulholland highway and the Santa Monica mountains. With Cornerstone, there will be more congestion, noise and crowds. Why […]

PLAY REVIEW /// ‘Cinderella’

In one of the most memorable images of any fairy tale, Cinderella loses a glass slipper after leaving the Prince’s fancy ball. But wait. She returns, retrieves the slipper and heads home, leaving the Prince without a clue to her identity. This is one of the twists in the 2013 Broadway revival of the classic Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein […]

Did right thing

I’d like to thank Councilmembers Linda Northrop and Illece Buckley Weber for their vote in favor of the Cornerstone appeal. Just because Brad Rosenheim and his investors spent 10 years on their project doesn’t make it suitable for our community. Why should it be built exactly how they demand without scaling it down to meet the needs and the character […]
