What’s Happening with Our Post Office? I am a Topanga resident for 45 years and have a mail order business. I ship almost daily at our local post office and I am finding the office closed frequently. I have been told they have hiring problems since Lucy retired and Lupe went on family leave. They have one clerk, Daniel, and he closes when he cannot be at the front counter due to lunch, or meeting the delivery truck in the back. This has been going on over a month and this Friday they were closed because Daniel had the day off. The Post Master doesn’t seem to be able to do anything about this problem. I hope this is not a sign of our local post office closing entirely. Any help or information you may have is most appreciated. Sincerely, —Tauni Brustin The Oaks are My Friends Your cover and article regarding the LAUSD and the oaks broke my heart (“Protected Oaks Cut Down at Topanga Elementary,” Sept. 16, 2022, The Canyon Chronicle, Vol 3, No 18). I used to walk behind the school up to Henry Ridge for years and years. This was before school shootings when the school was open and you could walk right in and go hike. Things changed...but for your article I had no idea that this occurred because it [hasn’t been] easy to go up there for some time now. It is horrible that the rules don’t apply to all and terribly sad about these beautiful old oaks. They are all my friends these oaks and they make life worth living. —Valerie Walsh Editor’s Note: Kent Hill and his wife, Alisa Land are parents who pursued this incident for two years and continue even now when their children are no longer students at Topanga Elementary. Mark Hovatter, Procurement Executive, LAUSD, addressed the Topanga Canyon Town Council at its monthly meeting (via Zoom) on September 14. Hill had to leave the meeting early and followed up with Mr. Hovatter regarding the damage that LAUSD has not yet rectified “... after 2 1/2 years and three graduating classes have moved on,” Hill noted. Hovatter responded with the following email: Mr. Hill Thank you for your comments, your questions, your background information, and most importantly your advice. All very well taken. The most important element that I read was, and forgive my paraphrasing: words are fine but actions are better. You will see actions! It will be open, transparent, collaborated with all of the interested parties who have the best interest of the students and the community at large. Mark Hovatter, Procurement Executive, LAUSD Communications between LAUSD and concerned parents continue in hopes of a satisfactory conclusion to the matter. —Flavia Potenza
