The sight of police helicopters buzzing overhead, though rare, has become way too frequent in this area since the start of the year. The biggest reason: an alarming string of unsolved bank robberies.

Hollywood comes to Agoura Hills



Last week for two nights, a hilltop in Agoura was lit with lights while Warner Brothers’ cast and crew were busy creating a part of an upcoming film “Inherent Vice,” directed by Paul Thomas Andersen.
