If so, it will be another mistake made by our City Council. Remember the Agoura Costco and how it was rejected due to concerns about traffic and the influx of “others” coming here to […]

Wildlife bridge subject of unfair scare tactic

I’d like to respond to Paul Scrivano’s Nov. 30 letter “Wildlife bridge is dangerous, a waste of money.” If only this statement referred to the writer himself: “Typically, civilization works best when it is devoid of the wild, bloodthirsty, nocturnal predators that get in its way.” As with so many issues today, broad rhetorical statements make headlines but not sense. […]

These include legal representation for his trial […]

Family Man

There will be no turkey this Christmas. My side of the family usually serves manicotti for Christmas. And my wife knows it. But before we get to Christmas, let’s go back to Thanksgiving.
