Passing the test



It’s only June, but local high school football players approached the Conejo Classic Passing Tournament like the Super Bowl. Players didn’t hold anything back at the 7-on-7 passing tournament hosted by Westlake, Thousand Oaks and Newbury Park high schools last weekend. Perennial powerhouses Oaks Christian and Westlake made the final four, with the Lions falling to Alemany in the final. […]

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, […]

Lady Outlaws ready for rugby




Ashley Palmer doesn’t make excuses. She’ s hobbling on a high-ankle sprain at Woodside Park in Camarillo for a recent practice with the Ventura County Rugby Club. Palmer’s dressed in street clothes, but she’s optimistic about playing through the pain. Her throbbing ankle looks like one of those California Raisins singers. Miguel Jimenez, a coach, shakes his head in disbelief […]

HOA squabble



The Calabasas Park property owners are surrounded by lovely common areas that they once owned and controlled through their homeowners association, the Calabasas Park Homeowners Association (CPHA). 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 […]

Finding 4 a.m. on the El Camino Real




A DASH OF YOUTH I don’t think 4 a.m. exists. For me, seeing is believing, and I’ve never stayed up long enough to see 4 a.m. on a clock. I did some research at UC Berkeley’s science department on the subject last winter. I walked into a lab and asked a professor, “Does 4 a.m. exist?” He gave me a […]
