By Greg Aragon One of my favorite places in winter is Ojai, where beautiful landscapes and small town charm mix to form pure relaxation. A friend and I recently took a day off work and snuck away to this little hideaway. It was only for the night, but the memories will linger for a long […]

By Nemanja Marinkoff Sure, Millennials and Generation Z people are still young but soon they will account for over 50% of shoppers, especially luxury shoppers around the world.

2020 is an exciting year for the California Philharmonic, celebrating two momentous anniversaries – Ludwig van Beethoven’s 250th birthday and its 25th anniversary of presenting summer concert seasons.

By Greg Aragon Through the morning fog we could see the outline of the 100-year-old light station, standing guard along jagged cliffs above the Pacific Ocean.

Opinion by Terry Miller I find Trump’s utter disdain for the media (particularly the Washington Post and New York Times as “enemies of the people”) somewhat ironic when he held up multiple newspapers last Thursday morning for the media he so fervently scorns. The headlines, of course, blasted the desolately inevitable news of a Senate […]

Angela Copeland February 6, 2020

By Angela Copeland I’ve noticed a disturbing trend lately. It’s not new, but it certainly seems to be increasing. When you are a customer and something goes wrong at a company, the company doesn’t resolve the issue until you get angry. Can you relate to this experience? You have a problem with a product or […]

Opinion by Terry Miller Brexit is the nickname for “British exit” from the EU (Economic Union) from which my fellow countrymen and women departed 31 Jan., 2020; or as I prefer to say, Britain took the “way out.” To be clear, when Americans depart someplace or other, they immediately look for an “Exit” sign but we […]
