Listen to this advice about hearing loss

On weekends, my husband and I walk our dog, Rolo, together. Rolo is blind and deaf, but is a joyful 10-year-old pup in otherwise good health. Me, on the other hand, while I am in good health, I’ve been having some trouble hearing. On our dog walks, we traverse a busy road for a short period of time, walking in […]

Aerial tracking strengthens fire prevention

In the 10 months following the Woolsey fire, Southern California Edison remains Southern California’s whipping boy, a wounded company caught in the crosshairs of an angry public still seething over SCE’s purported role in starting the horrific fire. Already facing a bevy of lawsuits charging that it failed to keep equipment and infrastructure properly maintained, Edison was sued again two […]


A community becomes divided

What is happening to our community? Since the introduction of the gender diversity lessons by the Oak Park school district at the elementary schools, our community has become divided. Families in opposition of the lessons; families in favor of them. Everyone has a right to their opinions, feelings, beliefs. So why can’t we all say our part without being harassed, […]

Civility needed for gender issue

While I am applauding the courage of responsible parents for refusing neutrality in the moral crisis when defending their parental rights—to refuse some parts of the materials and instruction that are not age appropriate or offensive to their personal views—regarding the Oak Park school district adopted gender-based curriculum, I certainly want to compliment the reasonable parents and OPUSD who have […]

Motorcycle fatality

It is with sadness and dread that I read of the passing of Mr. Richman of Oak Park as the result of another “left-turn in front of a motorcyclist incident,” this time on Kanan. My children attended Oak Park High School with Mr. Richman’s, and his loss is tragic. Your quoting of comments from persons who commonly use Eagleton are […]

The word is out that Agoura Hills is an easy mark for burglaries and vandalism. Recently around 3 a. m., crooks broke into Urbane Cafe, The Habit, The Wildflower Bakery, Nail Blvd and welcomed the new Currying Flavors Indian […]

Calabasas homes

By now most of us have seen and spoken with people gathering signatures for the Avalon Calabasas Apartment Initiative to preserve the 80 units of affordable apartments at their 600-unit housing project located between Las Virgenes and Lost Hills roads. In return they want to add 161 apartments at market rates. We first heard about it in July when Avalon […]

Smoke signal

A neighbor in Oak Park near Sabra, Locust and Smoke Tree avenues has been lighting a fire in their backyard every morning between 2 and 5 a.m. for the past two months. Unfortunately, the smoke is filling the inside of many homes nearby and is affecting our health. Several neighbors have reported many health issues as a result of this […]

Wildfire safety is paramount

I am a proud Woosley fire survivor. Rudy Gonzalez’s presentation for SCE on Aug. 14 at my local City Council meeting caught my attention. The talk covered detailing a Wildfire Mitigation Plan (WMP)—addressing and reducing fire ignitions caused by utility and infrastructure; fortifying the electrical system against a threat of changing conditions; and the impact of wildfire (CA Public Utilities […]
