Mayor encourages business cooperation

Calabasas Chamber hosts Mary Sue Maurer


Government and business leaders need to work together on behalf of residents to strengthen the local economy and build a greater sense of community, Calabasas Mayor Mary Sue Maurer told guests at a luncheon hosted by the Calabasas Chamber of Commerce last week. About 140 people attended the event at the Calabasas Country Club on June 20. Guests included city […]

Woof! It’s Fourth of July




This year’s Fourth of July festivities in Calabasas will include an array of family activities, including a spectacular fireworks show, that will commemorate America’s 236th birthday. “It’s an absolutely fantastic day of community and patriotic experience,” Calabasas City Councilmember Fred Gaines said. “There is something for everyone in the family.” The city has prepared a full slate of activities for […]

A very cool time at the Oak Park Splash Pad



WET ‘N WILD—Top, Paul Liebke of San Diego and 5-year-old Mason Gavia of Woodland Hills have come a long way to visit the Splash Pad at Oak Canyon Park in Oak Park. Above, 3-year-old Noah Lucas of Agoura Hills tries to capture the moment. The water park is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.

New lead in Smith disappearance




The home of a West Hills resident was searched by police earlier this month in possible connection with the disappearance of television executive Gavin Smith.

Your bold Acorn vacation



Summer’s here, so grab the kids, load the car—and don’t forget to take your Acorn on Vacation. The Acorn Newspapers’ longestrunning tradition is back for another summer of fun in the sun (or fun in the snow if you vacationed last winter and took your Acorn down the slopes).In the past, our vacationers have ridden camels to the Great Pyramids […]

Some cyclists are flat out of control

Cycling, once a form of recreation or transportation, now includes competitive teams riding in uniform at high speed with a herd mentality that they […]

Learning to accept autism



The CDC recently announced that 1 in 88 children have been identified with an autistic spectrum disorder. Some consider this to be an epidemic. That also means that we are likely to see more and more of these children around us. We are likely to see them at the local park, at the grocery store, at the doctor’s office, at […]

Eco legislation is hurting the state



I am hopeful the November elections will usher in rational representation for California. After following the state’s provision of Pavley and Nunez’s extreme measure (SB32), I have given up on Fran Pavley as well as any liberal representative at the county, state and federal level. America, especially California, will not experience prosperity and growth by taxation and endless regulation. Unfortunately, […]

Their association has been taken over by people who are also members of other homeowners associations in Calabasas and thus do not live in Calabasas Park. Though the Calabasas Park property owners have […]
