Oak Park senior standout a San Francisco treat

Varney will play college ball in Bay Area

Next stop: San Francisco. Seventeen-year-old Lauren Varney was born and raised in Oak Park. A senior for the Oak Park High girls’ basketball team, Varney long ago established herself as one of the area’s premier hoops talents. It was on local blacktops and in nearby gymnasiums where the 5-foot-11 forward honed her skills from a young age, refining the powerful […]

Pipe down, all you smoke shop critics

I am appalled at the accusations flying at the tobacco shop that has opened up at Lake Lindero Drive and Thousand Oaks Boulevard. Having read the letters in recent issues, I stopped into the shop to see what all the fuss was about. Far from a “head shop,” I found the shop and its patron pleasant and law-abiding. The den […]

Agoura charging toward league championship

Mixed signals

This is in response to the letter titled “Smoke shop sends wrong signal.” It strikes me as odd that people would use the reason of a 7-Eleven, a place where kids congregate, as a reason a newly opened tobacco and hookah store is wrong.  Hookah is only a different way to smoke tobacco. It was described that bongs where hanging in the […]

Coach, players clash at school

The dismissal of three players from the Calabasas High School girls’ varsity basketball team caused a recent ruckus among parents and administrators in the school district. Parents of Tiffany Jadali, Tassara Azad and Shirley Koyman charged that their daughters were dropped from the team because they had requested that head coach David Goosen be monitored for anger issues. Administrators at […]
