I had assumed John Edelston would have that position because Dan has had his turn and John has not. Today I read in your paper how the Agoura Hills City Council chooses these positions. I did not know before today that it is […]

For many, it

With only a few more days left until Christmas and Hanukkah, shoppers are still dashing through stores for that lastminute gift they hope will make this year a memorable one.

I have always believed tradition is the glue holding families together. This being so, […]
