Sad about books

I was very upset to read that Calabasas High School threw out several hundred books as part of their weeding process. I’d like to know how far CHS went to find a place to take them after the two charities mentioned turned them down. Did they ask the Calabasas Friends of the Library or any public library’s Friends group? Most […]

The interesting saga of Budge Sourpuss

Sporting atop my laboring shoulders a head bursting with dreams and plans as I carried moving boxes into my newly acquired, first-ever home of my own in rural Agoura, I initially failed to notice an object on the deck railing. The home’s former owners had worked diligently to clear out all of their belongings. So what was this thing left […]

Section honors Lion coaches

The CIF-Southern Section honored two Oaks Christian High head coaches. Wes Smith, the Lion girls’ track and field coach, and Joel Perttula, the boys’ tennis coach, are Southern Section Spring Coaches of the Year, as named by the California Coaches’ Association.

Homeless lady inspires reader

I write in praise of the July 24 Acorn article, “ Whatever became of Jenny?” I also knew of “Jenny” and I observed her over the years as she pushed along that market basket full of her possessions, or as she rested on “her” bench near Gelson’s market. However, I never garnered the moral courage to stop and get to […]

Thoughts about new Target store

I have resided in Agoura Hills for over 25 years—21 of them in the Lake Lindero tract. While I am personally thrilled to have a Target opening around the corner, I sincerely sympathize with our neighbors on Lake Crest Drive regarding the issue of the lights. However, I had to chuckle at The Acorn’s editorial comment stating that Realtors selling […]

Can you hear me now?

When you travel, do you need to stay connected? In this era of ubiquitous Internet access, that’s a question many of us face in our experiences on the road. Yes, I’d like to have constant access to the web. But do I need it? I faced this question on a recent trip out of the country. I had my tablet, […]
