We win!

Calabasas boys capture CIF hoops title

The Coyotes are howling in joy. The Calabasas High School boys’ basketball team won the first CIF-Southern Section championship in program history by devouring South Torrance 69-39 in the Division 3AA finals at Anaheim Arena on March 1. With the convincing evisceration of the Spartans, the Coyotes also set a single-season school record for wins with 27. “Several years of […]

Don Zimring leaving local school district

Donald Zimring, Las Virgenes Unified School District superintendent, announced he has accepted the Head of School position at Brandeis Hillel Day School, a private Jewish school with campuses in San Francisco and Marin County.

Time to change clocks on Sunday

The Acorn reminds you that daylight saving time begins everywhere in the U.S. except Arizona and Hawaii at 2 a.m. Sun., March 11. It continues until Nov. 4.

Recognition due

Regarding Stephanie Bertholdo’s fabulous article on behalf of our upcoming Oak Park High School Awareness Week, she truly highlighted and communicated all of the significant things that we will be addressing throughout the week. Unfortunately the two peer counselors that are spearheading this particular event did not get the recognition that they so deserve. Drew Gregory, 12th-grader, and Jane Desmond, […]

Against new shopping center

So developer Dan Selleck wants to name his new retail project at Russell Ranch Road “The Shoppes at Westlake.” How very clever. I presume the word “shoppes” is meant to evoke a quaint, cozy, rural village with gaslight street lamps and thatched buildings. Which is exactly what I see when I conjure up an image of a giant Target, a […]
