Eye On Local Area Stocks

Northrup and Buckley Weber

As a former council member and three-time mayor of Agoura Hills, I’m used to seeing political rhetoric and empty campaign promises, often very different from the candidate’s actual votes. My basic rule: when in doubt, follow the money. This is especially true this year when the literature of a number of challengers say similar things, but require financial statements that […]

He has spent his time in our city as a nonstop volunteer. He has done it all, from helping with morning traffic at the elementary school and […]

Shall we dance?

Well, folks, shall we try again? Is this readership ready for another great local event for singles? I ask this because I think it’s time for us to consider getting involved in another adventure together. The last time we tried, about 200 singles showed up for a fun night of meeting and mingling. I know one guy, in fact, who […]

Loose tortoise trudges a dangerous path


I think this story is worth a mention, if only to remind people to do the right thing at the right time. One morning in September I’d just dropped my son off at Conejo Creek Soccer Fields, near Janss Road and the 23 Freeway in Thousand Oaks, and was coming out of the exit when I saw a huge tortoise […]

During the debate, Steve exhibited a command of the issues. He really differentiated himself from the two other candidates in his position on preservation of open space and the need to closely monitor development. Specifically, Steve […]
