The Kanan Shuttle—that friendly white bus seen scooting about the community since 2013—will continue to operate as a free service thanks to a $25,000 contribution by the City of Agoura Hills. The shuttle, which runs in a loop with stops up and down Kanan Road in Agoura Hills and Oak Park, has become a popular mode of transportation for students […]
The Acorn crossword puzzle is so absurdly difficult that none of my friends, who all have advanced degrees, can even come close to completing it, so no one even tries it any more.

The encounter occurred shortly after David and Sam Menteer arrived […]
I’ve recently discovered some programs that can help solve many of the challenges facing seniors. There are so many sources of help available today that it’s nearly impossible to have a handle on all of them at one time. Having a robust list by topic is very helpful. As with any rapidly growing market, there’s continuous innovation, making it even […]
