Local dealers embrace fast growth in electric car industry

California new car sales continue to follow a downward national trend, but local dealers say electric vehicles are gaining in popularity and picking up the slack. While statewide vehicle registrations for new, light-duty vehicles dropped more than 5% percent in the first three quarters of 2019, the year-to-date sales for electric and hybrid cars reached an all-time high of 13.4% […]

First-time mayor no rookie on the job

Calabasas has a new mayor— her first time serving as the city’s top politician.

More than half of all holiday purchases are conducted online. But the convenience of internet shopping also comes with inherent risks. Nobody likes to be texted that the cool new coffee maker they ordered […]


Showing respect for diversity

I would really like to compliment Brian J. Goldenfeld and Jamie Matthews for writing such thoughtful letters last week. Mr. Goldenfeld offered a very positive suggestion for how he respects both his own holiday and Christmas. The United States is a wonderful country made up of people of many faiths. Each of those faiths teach treating others how you would […]

Enough of the school taxes

What a completely “progressive” editorial. You’re saying the single-party political system in Sacramento is so deaf and indifferent to our desires and needs that we should raise taxes even more to get what we absolutely need instead of forcing elected leaders to be accountable? My gosh, the roofs are collapsing in our sweltering, dilapidated schools and the gear our police […]

Suggestions for Civic Arts plan

I’m writing to say I agree with my fellow citizens who are concerned that totally reconfiguring our Civic Arts Plaza is a grave mistake. We all worry about the mandatory evacuations that will surely occur with future fires. T.O. Boulevard already has nasty traffic jams, and adding more traffic will only make things worse. The 101 is usually stop-andgo, which […]
