Oak Park girls on target from deep




Chicks dig the long ball. The Oak Park High girls’ basketball team lives that mantra. With 175 trifectas entering the week, the Eagles are the best 3-point shooting team in the CIF-Southern Section. The team averages eight treys a game, which is also the secondbest mark for any high school girls’ team in California. Pinewood of Los Altos Hills drills […]

Closer cell towers, less radiation



I remember clearly the day about two years ago that my daughter called me from Calabasas High School to inform me that her phone suddenly started working on school property. This was the day the T-Mobile site at CHS went online. After 2-1/2 years, we could finally reach her while at school, a big deal if you consider the lockdown […]

Valen-mine Day



Valentine’s Day is never about the guy in the relationship. It’s always about the girl. Flowers, heartshaped jewelry, heart-shaped chocolate, flowery greetings, flowery dinners . . .

Players were bickering and morale was low as the squad headed into the offseason. Fast-forward to tonight’s regular season finale at home against Calabasas, however, and the Chargers (11-6-1 overall, 7-5-1 in league) have a legitimate shot […]

Calabasas City Council election



After attending the Feb. 2 candidate forum and doing some independent research on the candidates, it is clear there are two ways to go with my vote for City Council. If my goals for Calabasas are revenue generation and staff expansion through development and building projects, the clear choices are pro-development urban planner Martha Fritz and developer’s lawyer Fred Gaines. […]

Love Stories. . .

This Valentine’s Day we asked our readers to share stories about how they met the love of their life. Their answers warm the heart.

From the moment the pads of his fingers brushed the palm of my hand, my heart swirled and soared into the sky while my soul was tethered to the very earth we stood on, and I knew that he had to be mine. I didn’t want to let go of his hand for fear that I would go back to […]
