Calabasas City Council should appoint retired council member



I applaud the decision of the Calabasas City Council to appoint a caretaker for the remaining term of Jonathon Wolfson. This gives an entire field of candidates an equal opportunity and level playing field for the next election. I encourage the council to appoint a retired council member or retired commissioner who could best continue the course determined by those […]

Calabasas High football players show commitment to the game, each other




In an era when some student athletes jump from school to school just to play on a winning team, the football players at Calabasas High share a different calling. They resolve to remain Coyotes even though their team is viewed as a constant underdog, said Christian Pierce, the CHS head football coach. The Coyotes marked the end of the season […]

Season shaping up to be a blast

Marmonte League girls’ soccer overview


There’s no such thing as a bad team in the Marmonte League for high school girls’ soccer. You’d have better luck finding Sasquatch sunbathing in Miami Beach with Crockett and Tubbs than uncovering a crummy Marmonte squad. Westlake, which has won three straight league titles, is a tough out when superstar forward Arielle Ship trots onto the pitch. Royal’s strong […]

Sibilia is best choice



In a democracy voters speak with their ballots. If true, then the only democratic choice to fill the Calabasas City Council seat vacated by Mr. Wolfson is Bob Sibilia, the third-place finisher in the municipal election held just last March. Yet certain council members whose current term expires in March 2013 are asking for volunteers, opening the floodgates to anyone, […]

One tough night can’t ruin WHS’ season

De La Salle rumbles through Westlake’s defense


Fear the veer. The De La Salle High School football team runs an offense ripped right out of the pages of a 1960s college playbook. Triple-option looks, splitback formations, offensive linemen who sprint to the line of scrimmage before the snap, rapid read-and-react runs by the quarterback—these Spartans are more old-school than an Italian grandfather who carries $1,500 cash in […]

Holidays should include everyone



For Ms. Smith to say she has been insulted by the phrase “Happy Holidays” and prefers everyone use “Happy Christmas:” no matter their faith is not only ignorant and selfish but unbelievably insulting to Jewish people and those of other faiths as well. Greeting cards use the phrase “Happy Holidays” as a way of being considerate and politically correct as […]
