. . . And another thing about Shea Homes



I chuckled when I read the letters in last week’s Acorn from the Calabasas “environmental community” praising the deeds of candidate Toby Keeler. While Mr. Keeler served on the planning commission twice, it should be noted that he was not reappointed by two different councils when he applied. Why?

On Tuesday at West L.A. College, OCHS sent another […]

No Title



Hugh Grant has pretty much defined the romantic comedy over the last dozen years. Handsome, suave and utterly unassuming, he charmed his way through a series of averagetoexcellent romantic comedies. His breakout role as the love-lost Charles in “Four Weddings and a Funeral” put him on America’s map in 1994. He’s remained one of filmdom’s most relaxed (to the point […]

Incumbents, yes



Watching from the sidelines, it is interesting to see the exaggerated claims and promises of those who wish to replace Barry Groveman and Dennis Washburn on the Calabasas City Council. As is typical of so many challengers, their rhetoric may be strong but their track record is weak. The simple fact is none of the aspiring candidates have anything new […]
