ARTICLES BY JEFF HALL, EDITOR & PUBLISHER, BRENTWOOD NEWS/WESTSIDE TODAY
I'm often told I'm a great writer -- and that I can take almost any subject and make it seem simple. I started as a cub reporter at the Kansas City Star and served for a while as president of the Valley & Ventura County editions of the Los Angeles Times.
The following is a small sampling of some articles I've written for the Brentwood News, now in its 22nd year; there are tons more where these came from.
