Super knowledge for Super Sunday

The Super Bowl and parties go together like chip and dip. Chances are you’ll either be hosting a pigskin-themed celebration on Sunday afternoon or attending somebody else’s bash. It’s never a bad idea to show up with food and drink in hand and score some points of your own. Better yet, be prepared to have a few fun facts to […]

A sobering teen scene

Parents get wake-up call at local reality parties

A trio of parent-teen reality parties hosted last year in Agoura Hills and Westlake Village and last week in Calabasas have given adults a better idea of what happens when their teenage sons and daughters go out into the night. To some, it was a not so pleasant wake-up call. While the behavior portrayed by teenage actors at the parties […]

New showcase house lays the foundation for module homes in SoCal

A new house unfolded Jan. 15 on a 9-acre lot on Kanan Road near the Medea Valley Estates in Agoura Hills. It’s not just any new home. This one will be used as a design showcase for Blu Homes, a Massachusetts-based maker of modular yet architecturally desirable prefabricated residences. The modules were delivered to Agoura Hills on four trucks from […]

Humans winning against animals

I find it ironic and disturbing to read about both mountain lion inbreeding and the Chesebro meadow development in the same issue. Now I hear that another mountain lion was killed on Kanan Road. In a community that prides itself with its surroundings, I would think that we would be better neighbors to the animals. Sounds like a change is […]

Hot Flashes

Dear Mother Nature

Put down the blow torch. It seems you’re a bit confused. Perhaps you found yourself in need of weed and have been enjoying the fruits of your labor in Colorado a tad too much. Perhaps a ginkgo boost with the heft of a Triton II missile added to your morning juice will boot up that bamboozled noggin of yours. Whatever […]

Eye On Local Area Stocks

History lesson not very accurate

It’s incredible that the Rev. Joe Scerbo maintains that Friar Junipero Serra treated California’s Indians with kindness (The Acorn, Jan. 2). The priest, as a former dean of graduate studies at Trinity College in Connecticut, should know better. According to Scerbo, Serra, “was led by the spirit of Jesus.” I cannot believe that Jesus would have condoned such atrocities as: […]
