Agoura shortstop Farinacci off to another hot start

Four-year varsity player now a grizzled veteran

If Reggie Jackson is Mr. October, then Agoura senior shortstop Nick Farinacci might be Mr. March. For the second straight season, Farinacci, a four-year varsity letterman, has gotten off to a blazing start at the plate. Prior to today’s game against Newbury Park, Farinacci was batting .425 with 17 hits, 17 RBIs and four home runs in a team-high 40 […]

The Stars Come Out In Calabasas



Fairness doctrine



I read with interest and amusement Carl Lane’s letter in the March 23 Acorn. To quote Mr. Lane, “Everyone who obeys the laws will not receive tickets.” This is patently false. If a deputy from the Lost Hills station wants to write you a ticket-if they are determined to do so-obeying the traffic laws is irrelevant. Recently, this happened to […]

Regional Traffic Sheriff’s program targets reckless drivers



Currently in its fifth year, the Sheriff’s Teenage Traffic Offender Program (STTOP) uses a creative approach to help deal with the sometimes reckless driving by adolescents. According to statistics, traffic accidents are the leading cause of fatalities for people between the ages of 15 and 20. Even though they represent only 7 percent of the drivers on the road, people […]

Hospice helps youths cope with loss



Still half asleep, 10-year-old Cody Morris didn’t know what to think when his mother woke him and his two younger brothers at dawn on July 6, 2002, beckoning them into her car for an unscheduled trip to their uncle’s house. Upon arrival, the three boys sat on the living room couch for a discussion they never imagined they would have […]

No Title



We’re just about halfway through the Marmonte League baseball schedule and things are really starting to take shape. At least that’s the way it seemed before last week when Simi Valley upset Agoura, who at the time was the No. 1 ranked team in the Baseball America/ National High School Baseball Coaches Association Top 50 poll. Agoura slipped to No. […]

Guest pianist coming to T.O



Pianist Arnaldo Cohen makes a return appearance with the New West Symphony for a performance of Franz Liszt’s “Concerto No. 2 in A Major for Piano and Orchestra, Opus 23.” Symphony music director Boris Brott will conduct the sixth Masterpiece Series concert of the season that also includes Georges Enesco’s “Rumanian Rhapsody No. 1 in A Major, Opus 11a” and […]

Not involved



“The city of Agoura Hills has left the Chamber (of Commerce) out of any meetings regarding the sign ordinance and the General Plan.” This statement, which appeared in the Chamber’s ad of March 30, is just plain false. I called the city to inquire about the Chamber’s participation in the sign ordinance. Staff recalls that Alex Soteras, then head of […]
