Indian Hills got a bad rap

Judging by the article written in the Oct. 29 Acorn , I can see why students would be apprehensive about attending Indian Hills High School, especially after the “Hollywood celebrity burglaries.” I would like to point out a different perspective on Indian Hills High School. My son, Jesse Stock, graduated from there in 2003. He is currently in his third […]

Rates are justified

Like many, I opened my last water bill from Oak Park Water to find a very nasty surprise due to the recent significant rate increase. I was very unhappy. But I realize it is inaccurate to blame the present board members, including Janna Orkney, the target of a recent letter to this publication. Oak Park water raised its rates because the rates […]

Agoura Hills hangs up on Lindero cell tower

Campus antenna voted down

The Agoura Hills City Council voted 4-1 last week to deny a cell tower at Lindero Canyon Middle School, despite a contract signed earlier between the phone company and the Las Virgenes Unified School District that permits an antenna on the campus. Rina Baraz Nehdar and Deborah Lopez, residents of Agoura Hills, launched the fight against T-Mobile and presented arguments […]
