Angered by her parking ticket

On Sat., Sept. 21, Westlake High School hosted a frosh/soph girls’ volleyball tournament. There were 16 schools participating and there were other functions going on at the school. Parking was impossible. As it was an all-day tournament, we had large, heavy coolers, easy-up tents, chairs and additional bulky items.

Eye on the Conejo

T.O. caters to bike riders Never has a local city done more for bicyclists than ours. Bike lanes take up precious pavement everywhere. Almost every major street has undergone construction to accommodate them. Bicyclists have a powerful lobby in City Hall.

Eagles take hit, get right back up

Oak Park girls’ volleyball team savors resurgence

The Eagles were down. They then captured a pair of five-set victories last week. It’s funny how fast things can change. Oak Park High’s girls’ volleyball team, which started 2-6 this season, is as confident as ever after picking up impressive wins against Camarillo and La Reina. “It was a shaky start,” said head coach Patrick Quinn, whose charges defeated […]

Delin was terrified to serve the ball in her first varsity game earlier this month. “I was shaking in the first game,” said Delin, a standout sophomore setter. “I was the first server, and I just remember being so scared. Every girl was older than me.” Delin has settled down and is playing up to her potential. She’s a top […]

Letter about Josh was in poor taste

I am so embarrassed for John Rico for submitting such a letter to the editor regarding the late Josh Isaac, who recently died of a drug overdose. If Mr. Rico had any knowledge or understanding of substance abuse addiction and possible mental health issues, such as depression, perhaps he would have reconsidered. Mr. Rico, had you done your research on […]
