Cartoon: a missed opportunity

The bicycle-truck crash cartoon on May 26 was in bad taste and completely useless for the safety of both motorists and cyclists riding side by side on Lynn Road.  More...

Sketch had no place in the paper

The May 26 editorial cartoon of a truck running over two cyclists was not editorial at all. It was straight vengeance and vitriolic, suggesting killing someone you don’t like.  This has no place in a community newspaper. More...

The emperor’s new horse trail

Your article about the unfinished bike path really annoyed me (“Unfinished Conejo Creek Bike Path a danger to horses, equestrian says,” May 26).  It’s finished—it’s the equestrian trail that is not only unfinished, More...

Equestrian offers clarification

I’d like to clarify some untruths in the May 26 piece about the Conejo Creek bike path.  First of all, equestrians want to share the path. We’ve been sharing for years, and now we are being excluded. More...

Upset preschool ended early

I doubt I am the only University Preschool parent who felt the May 31 letter to parents, delivered June 1 by teachers at the end-ofthe year picnic, stating that the last day of school for students at the school would be June 2 instead of June 9, was More...

Over the past few months there has been much debate over the implementation of a bike lane on Lynn Road.  While I feel it is a given that once there are cyclists on Lynn tragedy will be soon to follow, it is ultimately the cyclists’ respon More...

Fence would help protect horses

I read with interest the May 26 article about the new bike path that goes from Janss Road to Gainsborough.  I rode the new path after I sort of found it by accident about two or three weeks ago. More...

Law-breakers should be named

Two articles in the May 26 Acorn made me bristle, i.e., the late-night attempted prank by several T.O. high school students and two 15-year-old Newbury Park teens accosting someone with the intent of bodily harm.  More...

Don’t confuse tea party platform

Two letters in the May 5 issue of the Acorn criticized G.E.’s tax-free status, one of which states misconceptions about the tea party.  More...

Be wary of new ‘smart’ meters

Utility companies are planning to install wireless electrical, gas and water meters at each residence and business. More...
