Glad grads are moving on

Calabasas cell tower moratorium in effect

The Calabasas City Council voted 4-1 at last week’s meeting for a 45-day moratorium that temporarily stops the construction of new wireless facilities in the city. ‘‘ Cell providers can still submit applications for new towers, but the city won’t approve any requests until it completes a new ordinance that will improve its regulation of the facilities. The moratorium will […]

Oak Park’s new water tank on the way

More than two dozen people gathered at Oak Canyon Park on June 9 to dedicate a long-awaited project that will double the drinking water storage capacity for older neighborhoods in Oak Park. The Triunfo Sanitation District, which operates Oak Park Water Service, tried for several years to find an appropriate site and obtain financing for the new reservoir. Triunfo currently […]

City discards old way of thinking about shopping bags

Ban on plastic starts July 1

On July 1, the Calabasas shopper can take his plastic bag and stuff it. Hoping to reduce littering, the city will no longer allow shoppers to receive the plastic bags in large retail stores, mainly grocery stores. Shoppers will be encouraged to bring their own reusable bags, and paper bags will be available at a cost of 10 cents each. […]

These days, it’s a whole new ballgame. A dad in the 21st century has to bring his A-game to the plate. Today’s dad must be a chauffeur, handyman, […]


Colleagues diss council member

Lucy appointed Dale Reicheneder to the Calabasas Planning Commission and the other four councilmembers rejected the appointment. Seems like backroom dealing and bullying is still alive and well in […]

Says autistic son not welcome

One of the selling points when we moved to Oak Park 11 years ago was our Realtor’s praise for the Oak Park Unified School District. Little did we know at the time that three years later our son would be diagnosed with autism. We also had no idea what battles we were going to have to fight to get what […]

Believers and nonbelievers alike

All politics aside, I want to thank The Acorn for being willing to print letters not only from those that obviously do not believe in God but also from those of us who do. I didn’t read Mr. Carter’s original letter to the editor, but I did read the scathing responses from four men in our community. As a resident […]
