David Shapiro to fill Wolfson’s seat on Calabasas City Council

After a lengthy debate and difficulty finding consensus, the Calabasas City Council voted 3-1 last week to accept David Shapiro as its newest member. The 53-year-old Calabasas attorney replaces former Council- member Jonathon Wolfson, who resigned in December when he moved out of the city. “David Shapiro’s years of active involvement in so many aspects of our community make him […]

Teen pleads not guilty in Kramer death

Court proceedings are underway for the Agoura Hills teenagers accused of contributing to the October overdose death of Thousand Oaks High School senior Griffen Kramer.

Wrong council candidate chosen

Council members who stated that Ms. Weintraub was “articulate” must be hard of hearing, and Mr. Shapiro had no ideas for the city to speak of. Mr. Reicheneder was the most wellspoken by a long shot […]

Still not happy with interchange

Every morning I take a deep breath before driving out of our garage. Why? It’s another irritating drive south on Kanan Road to the southbound freeway entrance. We have lived in Agoura Hills for 26 years. While the community has grown with all development over those years, it makes sense that road construction would have done the same. Whoever came […]
