The Acorn featured an article titled “Roadwork snarls traffic in Calabasas” on Sept. 17. In the article, the City of Calabasas assured residents that the “city staff, sheriff’s deputies and contractors are working together to ensure the safety of drivers and to minimize disruptions for residents and students.” Since the day before the article was published, not a bit of […]

Taking strides against poverty, homelessness

Annual Lutheran Social Services walk-athon aims to raise $25,000

Supporters and staff of Lutheran Social Services in Thousand Oaks will lace up their sneakers this Saturday to make strides against poverty in the Conejo Valley. The community is encouraged to step up, too, to help the local nonprofit raise the funds needed to continue its mission of serving the hungry, homeless and unemployed. “The need is great but not […]

“The Intern”

There’s a gentle sense of maturity in every Nancy Meyerswritten and directed movie. She tells stories borne of experience and in the process proves “experience never gets old.” Here, in “The Intern,” that’s not just the tagline; it’s also what the talent—before and behind the camera—demonstrates: If you’re able to bring real understanding to the job, you don’t need sex, […]

Oaks Christian girls’ volleyball team wants to bounce back

Lions struggle to 1-8 start this season

Oaks Christian High’s girls’ volleyball team scraps for every point. That hasn’t led to many victories, however. The Lions have won one of their first nine matches.

Get out the vote

In light of the upcoming election, I have been urging everyone I speak to, young and old, to register, vote and support the candidate of their choice. I must admit I was appalled when I heard from several young residents that they do not register or vote as they do not want to be called for jury duty. Besides being […]

New coach, new team, new attitude

Ryan Correia is rookie head coach for upstart Agoura girls’ tennis team

Homer Simpson craves pinkfrosted doughnuts with sprinkles. Popeye gulps spinach. Ron Burgundy gnaws on ribs. Agoura High girls’ tennis players nosh on bagels. The Chargers started a tradition two years ago of eating bagels before, and sometimes during, matches. “It’s become our thing,” said Vicky Roseman, a junior doubles standout. Hold the cream cheese and lox, the Chargers have something […]

Calabasas City Council favorites

In evaluating the three candidates for Calabasas City Council, I think the choice is easy. All the candidates are supporting the Open Space initiative (Measure O) and all appreciate the Santa Monica Mountains for which we are so fortunate to be near. And in watching them, they all seem to promote a common-sense approach. But only two candidates have the […]
