Take care of the WLV animals



I have to say that I am quite ashamed to call a town home that has already proven to not care about its trees but has also shown me that it can’t be trusted— when permitting a town function—to take the wildlife into consideration.

The California dream has transformed from prospecting gold in 1849 to becoming a Silicon Valley tech titan in 2009 . . . to playing pro hockey in the NHL. Patrick Newell, […]

Proud veteran



July 9, 2014 is a day that this Agoura Hills World War II veteran shall remember with pride thanks to another resident, Linda Northrup. She brought to my attention this opportunity for those of us who enjoy the freedoms of our great country to express our gratitude to service men and women—by greeting them upon their return. Never wanting to […]
