Overcharged at the grocery



I am sure I’m not alone when it comes to being overcharged at the Vons and Ralphs stores in Agoura Hills.

Recently, I bought a package of […]

Cougar danger



In response to Dan Lenz’s letter, I’d like to address some of his statements. I too was at that meeting in Calabasas regarding the wildlife catwalk. It’s true that two Liberty Canyon property owners voiced their concerns about encouraging large predators into our neighborhoods, but there were other concerned Liberty Canyon property owners—myself included—in attendance. I visited the purposed bridge […]

Tony-winning musical is infectious

PLAY REVIEW /// ‘Hairspray’


“Hairspray,” now playing at the Moorpark College Performing Arts Center, is the bubbly, effervescent morality tale about civil rights in Baltimore in the early ’60s that won Tony awards for best musical, book and score. The 2002 musical based on John Waters’ 1988 cult film actually improves upon the original, with a knockout score by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman […]

Build a tunnel



Thank you for the fine article in The Acorn regarding the Agoura Hills wildlife bridge. I appreciate any input you have regarding this project. A tunnel beneath the freeway wouldn’t have to be that wide and would accomplish this very essential access for the animals. A tunnel would be much less intimidating to them. The $55-million project recently billed by […]
