Letter: Vital Zuman Clarification

Letter to the Editor

I have been a farm trustee and friend of Vital Zuman Organic Farm for 16 years, and while we appreciate The Malibu Times’ coverage of Vital Zuman’s closing last week, some issues need to be clarified.

Many Malibu residents, myself included, have been working with Shelly Sterling in efforts to mediate a way to keep Alan Cunningham on the Farm and to keep operations continuing. However, it came to my attention today that The Malibu Times did not report the eviction, but sidestepped the issue. 

Also, I have a letter from the Sterlings’ attorney asking for $5,000 per month along with nearly $30,000 in property taxes. Please let folks know that Alan was evicted.
