A 69-year-old man was found dead from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound at his Malibou Lake home on Aug. 5, the end to an apparent domestic dispute that involved the intervention of a SWAT team.

Old Agoura opposed to new townhomes at freeway location


A new residential development proposed for a small parcel at the entrance of Old Agoura has stirred the concerns of residents who believe the rural character of their community is once again being threatened.
