Not enough words to thank Los Robles staff

At 1:43 a.m. June 5 began the scariest time of my life. My husband, Steve, was experiencing signs of a heart attack. I drove him to Los Robles ER, where they confirmed my fears. They began to prepare him to open up a blocked artery. More...

Time to think about school board election

In regard to the current discussion of the closure of Newbury Park continuation school and the solutions the district should take in providing the best overall conclusion to the situation, the upcoming election will have a most influential effect on More...

Sustain VC has flexibility farmers need

I noted that the farmer-backed Sustain VC now will be on the November ballot.  In most news stories, there is a distinction made between the sunset dates for Sustain and SOAR.  As a recent Acorn article stated, “SOAR extends open spac More...

Censoring art leads to loss of freedom

First of all I would like to thank the Acorn for publishing the complaint about my beautiful painting “Three Goddesses in One.”  When a similar complaint was made two years ago in Santa Fe, hundreds of articles were written about it More...
