Thankful for trustees’ efforts

On Feb. 9, the Las Virgenes Unified School District board met. As a parent of four teenagers, I tuned in to better understand the dynamics of these leaders who are to advocate for our children. I was extremely impressed with both Angela Cutbill and Dallas Lawrence, who stood boldly on behalf those wishing to get back on campus. Of the […]

CPA a beginning to going green

In follow up to the letter to the editor in the Feb. 4 issue of The Acorn, “Kudos to cities for going green” by Alan Weiner, I would like to add my congrats to our elected officials and active citizens who brought the Clean Power Alliance to the Conejo Valley. The long-term health and economic benefits of going green will […]

Reopen LVUSD campuses now

Why are our children being left behind? The COVID numbers are down. Life is moving forward in our area. People are shopping, dining out, getting salon treatments, and yet my two Agoura High School seniors are sitting in their rooms day after day watching any chance of returning to school disappear this year. It is beyond heartbreaking. Our schools are […]

Board members deserve thanks

I want to thank Dallas Lawerence and Angela Cutbill of the Las Virgenes Unified School District Board of Education for their bold advocacy for all students of all grades to return back to school immediately. Our kids needed to hear this from adults who make decisions. As it is understood it is not up to the board to make the […]

Funds should go to animal bridge

Art Hershey from Calabasas is dismayed about the money pledged from citizen groups for a wildlife bridge over the freeway. Other funds are from state agencies for purposes like this. I am sorry Art’s “no” vote for them was in the minority. There are many other agencies that use tax funds for causes he might like. But Art might not […]

Supports new CEO for YMCA

To the Yarrow Family YMCA board of directors: Hire a CEO operating manager who is a leader, service minded and energetic, and not at all like the current sleepwalking CEO you have. The Yarrow Family YMCA is not currently the blooming, nourishing castle on the hill it was intended to be for this community. Instead, the Y is that place […]

Parent wants kids to go back

I am a parent of an Agoura High School senior. I have been trying to figure out how to get all of our kids back on campus. I have made phone calls and sent emails and letters. Our school board is ready and school sites are ready. TK-3 went back with no adverse effects. Why are the middle and high […]

Bridge expense again under fire

I was totally dismayed after reading the article in this week’s paper about the proposed cougar bridge over the 101 Freeway. It astounds me that anyone in their right mind could consider a venture costing $88 million, which would benefit an estimated 10 cougars. Southern California is smitten with untold numbers of social and economic issues that demand attention. How […]

Graffiti problem in Calabasas?

Does the mayor of Calabasas really wonder why he has a graffiti problem? Remember back in April 2018 when this very newspaper reported on the dedication of the wasteful debacle known as the Wallace connector trail? Most or all of the City Council stood shoulder to shoulder, smiling with Sheila Kuehl, our sheriff-defunding supervisor, as she recklessly spent $3 million […]
