Wants newcomer on city panel



As a Calabasas resident for over 25 years, I am writing regarding the City Council replacement for former Councilmember Wolfson and writing on behalf of Alicia Weintraub, who I have known for quite some time. She is smart, thoughtful, and energetic. She is a real problem solver. I like that she has had so much relevant education and experience which […]

Where else but at the movies?




When I read reports citing the dismal performance in movie-land, I get somewhat the same reaction as when I read the Oscar nominations from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. I think, these people should really get out more often, see more movies. Year-end reports are especially troubling to those who evaluate the industry only in terms of […]

Backing Weintraub



I recently read in The Acorn that there is some talk to encourage the appointment of a retired or former council member to fill the current vacancy on the Calabasas City Council. Respectfully, I would disagree. Fortunately, the council already has the benefit of two wellseasoned members. There are a number of former council members who have served our city […]

Calabasas’ Savvy Seniors registration a big success



The City of Calabasas received a good response when it launched a new series of winter recreation classes geared to senior citizens. Last month at the Founders Hall, a registration and tea social took place to introduce the programs, register interested participants, and provide an opportunity to meet the instructors and senior recreation staff. Attendance was standing room only. More […]
