Resident not in favor of Oak Park school tax

As an active community member of Oak Park and engaging in our school district processes, I have to sadly recommend a “no”’ vote for our school bond on the ballot unless our school district becomes more accountable as revealed by the Local Control Accountability Plans, which requires extensive input from parents, teachers and other community stakeholders.

The Acorn’s High School Football Game of the Week

Oak Park Eagles (5-1) vs. Grace Brethren Lancers (5-1) Friday, 7:30 p.m. at Moorpark College

Casey Webb is still floating. The head coach of Oak Park High’s football team led the Eagles to a 28-0 win at Nordhoff on Oct. 7. The next day, he got married.

No on Measure F

The Calabasas Coalition urges you to vote no on F. The ad in last week’s Acorn, paid for by The New Home Company that is proposing to develop the pristine 77-acre canyon, stated that Canyon Oaks would result in less traffic, more open space and less development. Let’s take a look at these assertions. Less traffic: The addition of 1,500 […]
