The Acorn’s High School Football Game of the Week




Crespi Celts (5-0) at Westlake Warriors (3-1) Friday, 7 p.m. Westlake High Westlake High football head coach Jim Benkert rarely visits Crespi, where he received his first coaching gig 31 years ago. “I’ve never had a reason to go back,” said Benkert, a Celts assistant coach from 1982 to 1988.

Other local football matchups



St. Bonnie (4-0) at Santa Margarita (4-0) Outlook: Okay, St. Bonaventure of Ventura isn’t technically a local team. But this Friday night’s 7 p.m. matchup featuring the Seraphs and Santa Margarita— ranked No. 2 in the USA Today Super 25 Football national poll— is arguably the best game in California this weekend. For fans who can’t make it out to […]

Broader issues



Iceberg ahead! I was fascinated to read that some Acorn readers still believe the Democrats and Republicans are truly working for our present and future well-being and that the politicians tell the truth. Capitalism no longer works in its current form, and therein lies the real area for discourse. And we cannot rely on our current political system to provide […]
