Smoke shop sends wrong signal



For the eight years that my children have attended Agoura Hills schools, beginning inYerba Buena Elementary School and continuing through Lindero Canyon Middle School, I have been pleased and relieved that the STAR program and Red Ribbon week have been a part of the curriculum and are part of the Las Virgenes School District’s educational program. Among other things, these […]

Linda Parks vs. Audra Strickland



I am concerned that Supervisor Linda Parks may be challenged for re-election by Audra Strickland. It appears Ms. Strickland is a career politician who has expressed interest in running for the next most convenient office available—first, secretary of state, then county treasurer tax collector and now supervisor. She doesn’t even live in the district. I am a strong supporter of […]

Chaparral students able to see America without leaving school



Children at Chaparral Elementary School in Calabasas and Yerba Buena Elementary School in Agoura Hills have been traveling through North America on a giant 26-by-34-foot map, large enough to almost cover the school’s multipurpose room.

Change is due



It’s time for a change in leadership in the city of Agoura Hills. The Kanan interchange was completed over two years ago and we’re still waiting for promised signage. This is a city that hires a new arborist almost every year. Each year the new arborist recommends new trees and taxpayer dollars are wasted on removing healthy trees and replacing them with “new […]
