Yes, coyotes are a real problem



Following a letter sent to The Acorn last week from J. Davis expressing the problem with coyotes in Calabasas, I must concur—we have a real issue here. I live in the Colony in Calabasas on Las Virgenes Road and, like other homeowners living up against the mountains, we’ve had a real concern with coyotes for months now. Packs of coyotes […]

My kid the salesman



My 8-year-old son is deep. He said to his mother, who’s a middle school teacher, “Your students think eighth grade is next to ninth grade.

The Zombies relive rock ’n’ roll history




Hot on the heels of the Yardbirds’ successful appearance at The Canyon club recently was another revived band from the British Invasion: The Zombies. Celebrating their 50th anniversary as a group this year, The Zombies have an advantage over the Yardbirds in that two of its core creative members are still with them: keyboardist/composer Rod Argent, and lead singer Colin […]

Moorpark polo coach resigns following comments about Agoura transfers




Just days after the sudden resignation of their head coach, about 60 high school water polo players, parents and other supporters echoed sentiments of dismay in an overflowing boardroom at the Moorpark Unified School District offices on Sept. 27.

Don’t scoff at petassisted therapy



Craige Story of Westlake Village (Acorn letters Sept. 29) deserves accolades for pointing out the importance and necessity of pet-assisted therapy. Many of the world’s problems today can be attributed to human despair, loneliness and hopelessness.
