Warriors prepare for Panthers

Westlake football team plays at Newbury Park at 7 p.m. Friday

Something has to give when the Panthers battle the Warriors. Newbury Park High’s football team’s defense churns opponents into pudding. Westlake’s offense is picking up speed like a caffeinated cheetah raiding the Kentucky Derby. The 35th edition of this Conejo Valley rivalry kicks off at 7 p.m. Friday at Newbury Park.

Picks for Westlake council

I enthusiastically endorse the candidacy of Don Rosenberg for Westlake Village City Council. I am certain that anyone who knows him will agree with me.
