Says ruling will force Jews to move

As a 25-year resident of Oak Park, I am grateful for the existence of Chabad of Oak Park, which serves several dozen observant Ventura County families who live within walking distance of the synagogue. The Torah law stipulates that we do not drive on the Sabbath, and so if you focus just on the Orthodox Jewish residents of Oak Park, […]

Westlake dominates Marmonte meet

Swimmers earn convincing sweep at league finals

Todd Irmas will savor this victory. Westlake High’s swim coach received a memorable going-away gift. The Warriors swept the firstplace team scores during the Marmonte League Swimming Championships last week, from varsity boys and girls all the way down to both junior varsity squads. Westlake also swept league finals in 2006. “You can’t feel any better than this,” said Irmas, […]

‘Smear’ campaign against Chabad

We love living in Ventura County. We love its wholesome quality of life, good neighbors and rural nature. We also thought the county was receptive to the Orthodox Jewish lifestyle, and so in order to observe the Sabbath properly, we bought a home within walking distance of Chabad of Oak Park. That’s why the recent Chabad decision by the county […]

Many dog parks, many choices

The sound of the hallway closet door opening and the jingle of leashes never fails to elicit howls of anticipation from my three dogs. They know that every Sunday afternoon is their special time to run and play with their friends at the local dog park. Going to the off-leash parks is the happiest time of the week for my […]

In an article about the Westlake Village community park and YMCA complex last week, it was stated that voters approved a $8-million bond measure to pay for the first phase of the project. The financing used by the city didn’t require voter approval. It was obtained through Certificates of Participation which, according to state law, do not need constituent approval.
