Giving deputies additional force may not be appropriate


The summer of 2020 has given the United States its worst taste of social unrest since the year 1968 when multiple assassinations and riots rocked the nation. On CNN.com, historian Julian Zelizer wrote that “it’s hard for Baby Boomers not to feel like this is 1968 all over again.” Zelizer’s statement carries much truth. Today, a new generation of men […]

Harkening back to the past

Black lives matter. Tear down those statues. These people seem to be having a problem with the American Civil War. In that little get together, 620,000 solders lost their lives: 360,000 Yanks (North) and 260,000 rebels (South) with an unknown number of southern civilians that died. The bottom line is that more lives were lost in that war than all […]

Wants the ‘hood to be quiet again

My neighborhood and community about every weekend have been disappointed by the lack of action in trying to silence the street racers and drifters who gather in the Bristol Farms parking lot in Calabasas very late at night. We have contacted security and local authorities to have a better grasp of the situation. Bristol Farms replaced their current security with […]

Credit not to the conservatives

Having read last week’s letter, “Says liberals living in the past,” I believe the writer is confused. Because of the great accomplishments of liberals in the past, all of us in America now have a future to enjoy. There is not one conservative who can claim that what they have done—or should I say not done, and in many cases […]

Oak Park High diversity issue

Kudos to Kymara Brody, her parents, and other families, for bringing to light the need for diversity training in the Oak Park Unified School District. To hear that white students at Oak Park High School are circulating certificates designed to serve as a “pass to say the N-word,” is disturbing, to say the least. Really? According to Ms. Brody, when […]

These are the cold, hard facts

In response to the recent letter about Oak Park school district air conditioning being run 24/7, how does Ms. Bird, the letter writer, know the A/C runs 24/7? The A/C units can be set to come on and off at different intervals. Without the A/C units coming on at some time, the unoccupied building would come into a state of […]

Likes the team of Northrup and Buckley Weber

I have known Linda Northrup and Illece Buckley Weber for a number of years. As an Agoura Hills homeowner, landlord and parent, I have reached out to one or the other or both of them on numerous occasions with issues of concern. Whether related to traffic or public works issues, COVID pandemic concerns, or issues related to the Woolsey fire, […]

Vadehra brings experience to LVUSD race

As a student excited to vote in my first election, I am thrilled that Dr. Kate Vadehra is running for LVUSD School Board. Her support of LVUSD schools is most clearly illustrated through her long-time dedication to the students, teachers and parents of the district. Through years of involvement in LVUSD, she has acquired the depth of understanding necessary to […]

Linda has shown consistently over time that she has the best interest of our district in mind 100% of the time. Linda’s financial business background and immense history of volunteering within the district has provided […]
