Take Your Acorn on Vacation



Time for parents to take charge



Cyber bulling and too much tech freedom for our kids—I believe this is directly responsible for the attacks at A.E. Wright Middle School. As a parent who believes in parenting and being responsible for providing my middle school student with regulations concerning the Internet, texting and phones with Internet access (he doesn’t have a cellphone), violent video games and absolutely […]

Bad kid, bad parenting

Moorpark and Westlake will play Friday at 7 p.m. for the CIF-Southern Section Northern Division championship at Simi Valley High. “This is something I’m going to remember for my whole life,” said Marc Palacios, a senior linebacker for […]

Stereotypical thinking in Agoura



Unfortunate is the crime that was committed at Chapter 8 on the night of Halloween, but the manager’s comments in reaction to the event are extremely appalling and disturbing. In a community that lacks diversity, the last thing I want to see is people promoting and admitting to stereotyping their customers. In the article it was written that, “Chapter 8 […]

Actor’s home on stage for tour



SHOWCASE— Visitors descend a second-floor staircase in the Agoura Hills home of Elly and John Schneider during the 18th annual Wellness Community Holiday Home Tour last Sunday.

Brag about your bag, help the environment
