Not in favor of high school homes

There is no question affordable housing for teachers is needed. LVUSD has a good reputation, and it has a responsibility to its community and the students it serves to attract the best and the brightest. While it’s a good faith effort, 16 townhomes on the high school campus will not solve that problem. The last place I would want to […]

Resident driven to distraction

On Jan. 13 I left Calabasas at 9:20 a.m. for a meeting in Santa Monica via Malibu Canyon. Really bad idea. Just past Mulholland Highway, traffic stopped. Unable to turn around, I waited. And waited. And waited. There were no signs, no flagmen and construction trucks were passing cars on a curved grade with obstructed view. I was trapped for […]

Stocking a success

As we enter the third week of 2011, I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped make the eighth year of Project Holiday Stocking such a success. This year we shipped 1,810 stockings to our troops serving in Afghanistan. The 2010 project was truly a community effort. Both national and local businesses as well as schools and […]

Kid needs a $450 cellphone, really?

I always check the Sheriff’s Blotter to see what has happened in my city of Agoura Hills. I’m always incensed when locals steal from each another. It is one thing for a thug to come into your neighborhood and steal from complete strangers, but it is even more disconcerting when you hear about peers stealing from one another. I noticed […]

VIP league important for all kids

The league provides team sport opportunities for special needs children, but its activities have been irregular. Fine is the VIP coordinator for this year’s basketball league, which currently has 20 players but has room for more. Hile is the […]
