Some Agoura rec center fees go up



Because of rising demand, the Agoura Hills City Council is raising fees for groups that want to rent space in the city’s sleek recreation and event center. The center is often used for weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs, and other events. The facility use fees were established in December 2014 based on going rates in the area. The fee structure […]

Colorful world of animals

Because it is bordered on the west by the Conejo hills, which form an east-west ridgeline, every sunset in Rancho Potrero is framed […]

Why toilet-to-tap when there’s water aplenty?

On a recent family trip to Northern California, Whiskeytown Lake and reservoir and Shasta Lake are full to the max, up from record low levels. The water flowing from the eastern Sierras is like flood conditions, with the Owens River at the top of its banks, and even the historically dry Owens Lake is at a level that we have […]

Misinformed about shopping centers

Perhaps she had a bad experience at the Agoura Animal Shelter; that is no excuse for name-calling and broad generalizations that have no merit. Here is what I know: My family and I have had a long and personal relationship with the shelter. […]
