Agoura growth

I’m sure anyone who travels Agoura Road between Reyes Adobe and Lindero Canyon roads in Agoura has seen the flag poles marking out two potential pads for development. I went to the planning commission meeting on the subject of their requests for multiple variances including those violating the Ladyface open space plan. Why they seek so many variances is a […]

But I thought you wanted a burrito

Hot Flashes

Summer is kaput. And our sycamore trees look like props for “Nightmare on Elm Street” along with those beefsteak tomatoes that got no beef. Yet, there is one place where beef is king. In the world of Grumps. So here’s the gristle. We were getting ready to attend the last concert in the park over there where Dover meets Hendrix […]

The Acorn’s High School Football Game of the Week

El Camino Real Conquistadors (3-1) vs. Calabasas Coyotes (4-0) Friday, 7 p.m. at Calabasas High School

Zack Boyle, a Calabasas High lineman, grew up playing football with El Camino Real players on Valley West Ravens and Calabasas Raiders youth squads. Jackson deSpain, a Coyote linebacker, went to grade school with current Conquistadors at Woodland Hills Elementary School. Seon Gordon suited up for El Camino Real last season but currently patrols linebacker for the Coyotes, the No. […]

Car wash gaffe

Regarding the article Sept. 8 by Sylvie Belmond, her statement that “it takes about 500 gallons of water to hand wash a car” is grossly misrepresented. Any water-savvy car owner knows that they can wash any car with about 1.5 gallons maximum of water. For Sylvie, or any one interested, all you need is a hose with an automatic nozzle […]

Other local football matchups

Saugus (4-0) at Agoura (0-4) Outlook: It’s been a rough first half of the season for Agoura first-year head coach Kamran Salem and his players. After playing well in the season opener against Calabasas and leading by two touchdowns against Newbury Park, the Chargers have struggled. They’re coming off their worst performance of the year, a 45-10 loss last week […]

A vote for Hillary

I am enthusiastically supporting Hillary Clinton for president. A vote for Trump is a de facto statement that one believes knowledge is meaningless. Trump is the perfect marriage of arrogance and ignorance. Jill Stein demonstrated her lack of ethics by urging Bernie Sanders to abandon the party he chose after losing the primary. She planned a childish publicity stunt with […]
