Now for those who comply, our lawns have turned yellow, and I prefer having a lawn over drought-resistant landscaping. Greg GeorgeCalabasas Editor’s note: The […]

The Calabasas High School Peer Support program supported National Suicide Prevention Week last week to bring attention to an issue that has affected the community.

The Acorn’s High School Football Game of the Week

These men and women serve and protect the public with little recognition for the incredible services they perform in helping maintain a civilized culture. Among these heroes are firefighters, the U.S. armed […]

Seniors thrive in adult day programs



Years ago, after my grandmother died, my cousin came to live with my grandfather, whose nickname was Bubbles. Don’t ask about the silly moniker, except I will say that (embarrassingly) it was handed down to my father, and his daughters suffered the humiliation of my mother referring to dad as “Bubbles” at restaurants and parent-teacher conferences. Back to Grandpa. While […]

Agoura Hills City Council election



It’s election time and you’re going to see a lot of letters to the editor about candidates running for City Council in Agoura Hills. I’ve spent a lot of time at City Council and planning commission meetings, and in meetings at City Hall. I can tell you who rubberstamps things versus those who dig deep into the issues. I can […]
