Regret over apartments

I totally felt the resentment and note of betrayal Ms. Silver expressed in her letter about the development at Driver and Cheseboro roads. My family and friends have spent countless hours traversing the hills and canyons of the area running, riding and hiking. It is a fantastic natural recreational area that is the gem of the community and, in fact, […]

Moth teaches human an important lesson

CRITTER TAIL /// Insect friend

If a piano had wings, it would be an elegant sphinx moth, Sphinx perelegans, a moth of great size whose body’s black-and-white pattern resembles a keyboard. The female moth selects native manzanita and holly-leaf cherry, found in our local mountains, as host plants for its prospective caterpillars.

Las Virgenes development

Win, lose or draw, the citizen effort to gather sufficient signatures to put a referendum on the November ballot is an example of the best our way of life has to offer. The real culprit in this situation is the Calabasas City Council, which permitted its planning staff and planning commission to submit a project for consideration on a property […]

Don’t overlook matching-gift benefit

Other Side of 50

Paid vacations, sick leave, health insurance and retirement plans are benefits companies commonly offer their employees. But, as part of their commitment to corporate philanthropy, many employers offer another benefit that is frequently overlooked: a matching gift program designed to support the nonprofits their employees are passionate about. Today, one-third of all employees in America are baby boomers (age 52 […]

Show is flush with musical satire

PLAY REVIEW /// ‘Urinetown’

The musical “Urinetown,” with its message of a capitalist society run amok, is especially potent now that the political season is in full swing. The show, which ran last weekend as part of Calabasas High School’s summer theater program, was an off-Broadway cult classic that crossed over to Broadway in 2001. The creators, Mark Hollmann and Greg Kotis, won Tonys […]

Day of reckoning

From the first day of this election process, I began praying that the Lord would make it very clear to us who his choice for our country would be since he knows the hearts of all (Acts 1:24). I am an independent and I had been taken by Obama’s rhetorical genius and presidential demeanor. Since then I have seen our […]
