Calabasas not guilty of overspending

I don’t usually write letters to the editor, but I wanted to provide your readers with some additional information on the city of Calabasas. After reading last week’s editorial, readers may have been left with the impression that Agoura Hills operates at half the cost of Calabasas. I visited the Agoura Hills website and reviewed the Statement of Activities from […]

Sewer movement has ulterior motive

Let me get this straight. The city of Calabasas raided a longtime Cold Creek family’s property, ignoring the Fourth Amendment. The city of Calabasas is going to further study annexation of areas south of the city, despite the fact that the majority of the residents of those areas are not in favor of annexation. Calabasas is proposing sewer expansion, with […]

Child’s play

Not too long ago I was on the range working with a student, and out of the corner of my eye I spotted the smoothest, most powerful motion I had ever seen in person.

Baha’i community outraged at sentence

The trial, conviction and sentencing of seven Baha’i leaders in Iran have triggered outrage and condemnation of the Iranian government by the local and international Baha’i community. Fariba Kamalabadi, Jamaloddin Khanjani, Afif Naeimi, Saeid Rezaie, Behrouz Tavakkoli and Vahid Tizfahm, were arrested May 14, 2008, at their homes in Tehran on charges of espionage, spreading propaganda against the state and […]

An interpretation

It is unfortunate that the response by Jeannine Hamilton to my letter to the editor regarding the veto of the Chabad expansion request is based on misconception and incorrect facts. Those are usually symptoms of an angry person. The proposed Islamic Cultural Center is not in downtown New York City, but in the financial district. Secondly, the current mosque at […]
