New green space a walk in the park

Trail fronts Lindero Cyn. Road

The Westlake Village City Council cut the ribbon on the city’s newest park last week, but unlike other recreation areas in the region this park doesn’t feature playground equipment or open fields in which to run. In fact, people might not realize it’s a park at all. The Lindero Canyon Linear Park stretches along Lindero Canyon Road between Agoura Road […]

Cities look to county for guidance on homelessness

Homelessness carries a multitude of stigmas—crime, drug abuse and mental illness, to name a few. A concern locally is that homeless people are migrating from the San Fernando Valley and relocating in the once quiet bedroom communities of Calabasas, Agoura Hills and Westlake Village. The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, an L.A. County agency, has released the results of a […]

Sheriff pulls out of fundraising football game for fallen officer

Less than a mile from where Sgt. Ron Helus was mortally wounded Nov. 7, 2018, in the line of duty at Borderline Bar and Grill, Thousand Oaks Police Chief Tim Hagel met with community members Wednesday at his regularly scheduled “Coffee with the Chief” event at a coffee shop on Moorpark Road.

Deadly weekend on the road

Two residents died last weekend in a pair of accidents on local highways. A Calabasas resident was killed last Friday night when he attempted to cross the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu and was hit by a vehicle. On Sunday, a single car crash claimed another life.

This year, the county registrar is introducing a new system that does away with booklets, pens and home polling stations. On Sept. 28 and 29 the county hosted a mock election to test the new voting system. One was held at the […]

Conejo volcanics: From 15 million years ago to today

Geologist tells tales of Conejo Valley’s most storied peaks

The Conejo Valley’s landscape of peaks and ridges is a story written in stone. Fifteen million years ago, the area now nestled in the western Santa Monica Mountains was submerged under a shallow sea, and Conejo Mountain was a 10,000-foot volcano rising above the marshes. Geologist Derek Field explained how erosion and seismic activity transformed the prehistoric volcano into the […]

Memory of fallen officer besmirched by politics

It began for all the right reasons, an event that most folks were anxious to get behind. But with allegations of race and politics tinged by angry rhetoric, a flag-football event in honor of Sgt. Ron Helus, Borderline’s fallen hero, turned into a battle between red and blue and a fight reminiscent of what divides our nation today. It should […]


Allow the new Calabasas apartments

I agree with Jolene Scott-Placencio regarding the Avalon Calabasas keeping 80 apartments affordable in exchange for the right to build new market-rate units. Of all the low-hanging fruit to building more housing, this has to be it. I hike in this area, bike ride, live in one of the communities on Parkway Calabasas, and I feel lucky that the developer […]
