Border war erupts between two cities

By The Acorn Staff | November 08, 2018

Agoura Hills has taken steps to annex property that lies within unincorporated Los Angeles County at the eastern edge of the city—a move that pits Agoura against neighboring Calabasas, which previously sought to take control of a key property on the 43-acre swath at the northeast corner of Agoura Road between Liberty Canyon and Malibu Hills roads. The Calabasas City […]

Feedback on sportsmanship article by Acorn

By The Acorn Staff | November 08, 2018

Thank you for the piece by Eliav Applebaum regarding good and bad sportsmanship in last week’s Acorn. I couldn’t agree with you more. It’s a constant reminder that kids will make mistakes; they’re kids, and that’s how you learn. As coaches, principals, athletic directors and parents, though, it’s our job to be the correct examples for our athletes and children, […]

Incumbents return to L.V. School Board

By The Acorn Staff | November 08, 2018

Three incumbents for the Las Virgenes Unified School District Board of Education won handily in Tuesday’s election. Lesli Stein, Angela Cutbill and Dallas Lawrence captured the most votes in the first school district election to be aligned with the gubernatorial race, but challenger Kiyomi Kowalski finished with impressive support from constituents in the four cities that make up the student […]

No competition for Calabasas candidates

By The Acorn Staff | November 08, 2018

Familiar names and faces will return to the Calabasas City Council. Incumbents James Bozajian, Mary Sue Maurer and David Shapiro were all reelected in a Tuesday election that carried a strange twist. Challenger Vahid Naziri, who had previously withdrawn from the race, received 1,232 votes, almost 9 percent. Naziri missed the deadline to drop out so his name so his […]

‘War to end all wars’ did no such thing

By The Acorn Staff | November 08, 2018

“From the darkness on all sides came the groans and wails of wounded men; faint, long, sobbing moans of agony and despairing shrieks. It was too horribly obvious to me that dozens of men with serious wounds must have crawled for safety into shell holes. And now the water was rising above them, and powerless to move, they were slowly […]

Halloween fun on Hempstead

By The Acorn Staff | November 08, 2018

Once again, this year thousands enjoyed Halloween evening on Haunted Hempstead Drive in Agoura Hills. For over 25 years, trick-and-treaters have taken pleasure in the scary and sometime elaborate decorations, spooky little graveyards and festivities that have become a staple at this Morrison Ranch location. Parents, who years ago trick-or-treated here as children, now bring their own kids to do […]

The pilot who dropped in to say hello

By The Acorn Staff | November 08, 2018

Statistics show it’s safer to fly than to drive—but flying and driving at the same time? Now that’s another question. Rob Sandberg of Camarillo is the pilot who was forced to land a small aircraft in the middle of the 101 Freeway in Agoura Hills on Oct. 23, creating a traffic jam of epic proportions that local residents are still […]

. . or SCE bills

By The Acorn Staff | November 08, 2018

Your story on Oct. 11 talks about SCE’s magnificent gift to its customers of a $580 million bill to upgrade the wires some electrical lines caused this year in the form of a rate increase. Are we not paying high enough charges for electrical power today than in the past, and why do they not accept this as a nonchargeable […]
