Help with water

As a long-time Oak Park resident who loves this area for its natural beauty in spite of our water-challenged climate, I am really dismayed to see that while many SoCal communities have restarted their rebate programs for lawn replacement, Oak Park Water Service is one of the few utilities not taking advantage of this new funding from the Metropolitan Water […]

Giant steps

Local stars surge

Meghan Markle is now the Duchess of Sussex after marrying a fancy lad. Big whoop. De’Anna Nowling is the Queen of Sprints. Nowling, a Calabasas High junior, dashed her way to three gold medals at last weekend’s CIF-Southern Section Division 2 Track and Field finals. The Coyote captured first place in the 100- and 200-meter sprints, and helped the Coyotes […]

In your May 18 Acorn letters Mike Schwieger a former Rancho Simi park ranger and a retired LAPD veteran, made some pertty nasty remarks about the rangers.
