Impressed with local dog park

I have never been to a dog park before. But now that we have a new puppy, we wanted to give it a try. We want him to be comfortable around and play nice with other dogs. So my daughter and I took our 7-month-old mini Australian shepherd to the Oak Park dog park on Jan. 7. All three of […]

What’s good for the goose

SHORE LEAVE—Even before the rain, the water looks pristine at Westlake Lake. Almost 2.5 inches fell in the area, and local lakes are full again.

Kicking off the new year right with God’s unbreakable promises

Roots of Faith

How many new year’s resolutions have you broken so far? A calendar changeover often spurs us to take stock of our lives and strive to improve. Yet despite good intentions and valiant efforts, we often keep those promises only a short while before we fall back into old habits or give up in exhaustion before reaching our objective. Fortunately for […]

Not impressed with Acorn’s Calabasas coverage

I was very disappointed with your article on Calabasas in 2017 by Ian Bradley. I have also talked with others who felt the same way.

Explains need for WLV sidewalk

I would like to address a previous letter from Jonathan Greenspan. Mayor Rutherford’s priority of completing a sidewalk on the east side of Lindero Canyon Boulevard is not due to his desire to have a new sidewalk adjacent to his residence but concern for public safety. The stretch of Lindero Canyon that presently does not have a sidewalk is used […]
