Westlake excellence is par for the course

Marmonte League outlook: Girls’ golf

The Westlake High girls’ golf team won the Marmonte League championship in 2008. This year, the Warriors are even better. “It’s very obvious that they’ve got one of the premier teams in all of Southern California,” Agoura head coach Gary Gray said. Although Westlake will likely capture another league crown, other Marmonte schools are playing well on the links. In […]

High-tech schools

Choosing Malibu Creek State park for the Reagan Equestrian Campground is an abomination. This facility will mar the view for miles along a designated scenic highway, Mulholland Drive. The fire pits of this facility are also a threat to public safety and will likely be the place the next Corral Canyon fire begins, wiping out hundreds of homes.  The concentration of […]

Father, son find peace on the trail

A year ago I started living-out a dream I have had for many years: to backpack and camp the entire 220-mile length of the John Muir Trail in the protected wilderness areas of the High Sierra Nevada Mountain Range, from Yosemite Valley to Mt. Whitney. Many hardy souls cram the entire journey into their only vacation time of the year—two […]

President’s message censored

I was not surprised but still dismayed that someone at Willow Elementary took it upon themselves to censor the president’s speech to school children. Believe me, whatever they did instead of watching was much less educational. But I’m sure the small-minded bigots at LVUSD could care less about that. Zimring’s position that the board’s goal is the “make this a […]

Local girl is MVP

Young environmental leader bids farewell to Calabasas

The Calabasas Environmental Commission said goodbye earlier this month to a student representative who has worked diligently to promote environmental awareness in the community. Rebecca Peters graduated from Calabasas High School last spring and has left her post on the commission to start her college career at Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo.
