Lost and found



Several months ago I lost a money clip with over $400. I thought it was gone forever. I then went to Ameci Pizza in Agoura Hills to buy pizza for the family and the owner, Mr. Wasifi, asked me if I had lost something. I told him yes, some money, but I didn’t know where or when. He said, “You […]

Calabasas City Council election



We’re at a crucial turning point in Calabasas. There are several proposed development projects, including four hotels. I’ve watched approval of homes on the ridgeline that compromise the corridor along the Santa Monica Mountains. I have also seen traffic increase dramatically in our city. Mr. Roseman is committed to preserving open space in Calabasas, and vows to carefully look over […]
