Fix the lockers at Calabasas High

I am writing in reference to Mr. Posell’s letter last week stating that the problem of thefts at Calabasas High School would be solved if iPods, cellphones and electronics were not allowed on campus to begin with. While I agree that this policy change might help the situation, it would not solve the problem.   My son plays football at […]

At the time, however, even the New York Times noted the possible Freudian subtext. Although Sendak’s story was minimal (only 10 sentences), it was the author’s […]

The high-powered Lancer offense built a 35-0 second-quarter lead, and the team’s subs were into the game before halftime. Calabasas had its hands full during a Week 6 loss at Westlake and faces another large homecoming crowd at TOHS. An impact player […]

Vote for Combes

As a parent member of the Calabasas High School Site Council, I had the privilege of working with Diane Combes, candidate for LVUSD board. She was elected secretary at the first meeting as she quickly took on the responsibility of summarizing and preparing the minutes. Diane is organized, prompt and responsible. She has a great perspective and has the ability to […]

Supervisors send a signal to Oak Park

Medea Creek traffic measure gains approval

The Ventura County Board of Supervisors, meeting Oct. 13 in Oak Park for the first time ever, approved the installation of a fourway stop sign in front of Medea Creek Middle School to slow traffic and improve public safety. A Sept. 22 accident on Doubletree Road that critically injured a sixth grade student provided the impetus for the new stop […]


The Italian food gods have smiled down on Agoura Hills. They’ve sent us Giuseppe Bellisario and Nick Andrisiano, coowners of Grissini Ristorante Italiano. In the Agoura Hills Town Center just east of Reyes Adobe on Agoura Road, Grissini (Italian for breadstick), is a standout.  Tucked into a far corner of the center, the restaurant is beautifully decorated in soft shades […]
