Article was cruel to Agoura High

Shame on you. As an editorial staff you should know better than to allow one of your writers to publicly ridicule high school athletes on their games. I am referencing the comments recapping Agoura High School’s game against Golden Valley last week. Referencing the score and the team record thus far is fine by all accounts. Your writer crossed the […]

On Measure F

The Calabasas Coalition backs voting no on Measure F. We have heard and listened to all of the arguments for and against the Canyon Oaks hotel and homes project. Development is great for Calabasas but it must be responsible, well thought out, follow the general plan, be well-designed and, most importantly, based on need, not want. Does the city need […]

The Acorn’s High School Football Game of the Week

Thousand Oaks Lancers (1-3) vs. Agoura Chargers (0-5) Friday, 7 p.m. at Agoura High School

Thousand Oaks High’s football team will not overlook Agoura. “They have to be hungry. They’re like a trapped animal,” Thousand Oaks head coach Mike Leibin said of Agoura. “They’re 0-5 but they’re not an 0-5 team. Some of those teams they’ve played are very good.” The Chargers’ five losses have come against teams that are a combined 21-4 this season, […]

Stern vs. Fazio

I have examined state Senate candidates Stern and Fazio’s websites and have found very little information about their positions on education. One of the primary responsibilities of state government is education, but other than pious pronouncements that education is “important,” the candidates rarely mention it. Our students are being pushed into excessive amounts of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) […]
