Previous developments not to blame

In response to last week’s editorial that said: “Once those (hills) are gone, they never come back, just like the hills that were destroyed and the open space that was eliminated when many of the opponents to Cornerstone moved into their own new homes years ago. The hypocrisy is apparent.” There is a gigantic difference between a few single family […]

She gives a coot

I enjoyed reading Gloria Glasser’s “coot” story in last week’s Acorn. My heart breaks for the shunned chick.

Missing Dad and his pasty white bird legs

With burners on liftoff, I showcase my talent for making charcoal briquets out of Gelsons’ ribeyes. Converting anything once $24.99 per pound to carbon is my specialty.
