Not happy with Cornerstone

The editor asks if the Cornerstone vote was “hubris,” which is a Greek word meaning “arrogance so great it leads to one’s downfall.” The members of our City Council who voted for Cornerstone project ignored the community and approved the worst-case scenario there. Instead of listening to the community and requiring an environmental document that would have looked at lowerdensity […]

California Catholics to observe 9 days of prayer for immigrants

During weekly living-room prayer meetings, parishioners of St. Mary Magdalen Church in Camarillo gather to offer prayers of intercession. Recently, their petitions to God have been directed toward undocumented immigrants. “We are praying for them,” said Olga Dennis, president of the church’s 15-member Grupo Guadalupano prayer circle. “It’s very sad what is happening with the children.” Like Dennis, Catholics and […]

Donors roll up their sleeves and get to work

Deja vu again

I have lived in Agoura Hills since the early 1980s when this place was called Agoura without the Hills and Judy Kanan was part of city government.

No local prep football teams earned section rings during the Conejo Classic passing tournament, but coaches gained insight from the exhibition battles on June 16 at Newbury Park and Westlake. “With 7-on-7s, you get to see […]

Village growth too intense

The “ community forum” staged last week by developers who wish to build a traffic producing, Orange County-style theme park in Agoura called the Avenue was a complete sham. The developer did not show up and instead his “lobbyist” Brad Rosenheim gave a clumsy presentation. Rosenheim is called a “land use expert” but what is he really an expert at? […]
