Condolences to Agoura Hills



High school can be an exciting, joyous time in one’s life, but at the same time it can be scary, intimidating and hard to handle. I look back now and realize I had an amazing support system, but back then I felt alone, completely alone. I held in every emotion, every thought, every feeling I had during that time. When […]

Occupy Citi



Citigroup recently agreed to pay $285 million to settle a SEC civil complaint, basically admitting it defrauded investors. The settlement is a pittance for the Citigroup giant that reported in the third quarter alone an earned profit of $3.8 billion on revenue of $20.8 billion.

Former Olympic runner still going strong at 80




For an 80-year-old, Laszlo Tabori is as spry as they come. The Hungarian-born, former Olympic runner broke the four-minute mile on May 28, 1955, the third man in the world to do so. Tabori now lives in Oak Park with his wife, Laurie, and continues to share his talent with runners as a trainer and coach. Tabori catapulted to fame […]
