Who created debt?



In the current election campaign, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has been running attack ads against U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer. The ads criticize Sen. Boxer for voting “to add trillions to the national debt” and for “piling up record deficits.” I hope voters are not so stupid that they forget recent history. It was the second President Bush and his […]

Placing the blame for high salaries



Accountability in government. Let’s hold them accountable. All are empty words until voters start thinking more smartly. The perfect example is in your Oct. 7, Page 1 story about the water board race.

This proposition is sponsored and funded by Big Oil. They don’t spend their money to help us out. They spend their money to make more money. That big oil wants this […]

Compensation not an issue at LVMWD



I’m tired of candidates who don’t do their homework. It’s way too easy to say, “I’m against high water rates” but what does that mean? How can a candidate expect to make a difference when that same candidate has only recently been spotted attending a water district board meeting for what is likely the first time? Those meetings are open […]

Agoura water polo team primed for another title push



The Chargers run like clockwork. They win. They graduate stars. They regroup. Newcomers develop. The winning continues. Agoura High’s boys’ water polo team repeats that cycle. The results speak volumes. The Chargers were 17-3 through their first 20 games. They’re vying for their fifth consecutive Marmonte League crown. “I’m impressed with our focus and drive,” head coach Dustin Litvak said. […]
