Landowner gets OK to shoot lion

License to kill granted by the state

The death of a radio-monitored mountain lion shot dead under the state’s three-strike policy—which was intended to make such killings more difficult—has sparked debate over the best way to manage the area’s shrinking puma population. P-56 was killed in January after a Camarillo ranch lost 12 animals in two years to the big cat. The cougar is the first collared […]

Sheriff’s lieutenant alleges promotion handled unfairly

Leadership dispute at Lost Hills

Lt. Jennifer Seetoo, the onetime acting captain of Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station, has filed a lawsuit against the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department alleging that she suffered sexual harassment, gender discrimination and other retaliation at the hands of Sheriff Alex Villanueva and his staff. Seetoo, a 22-year veteran of the department, filed the lawsuit Jan. 27 in Los Angeles County […]

Local vote centers identified

Agoura Hills voters got their first look at the new ballot system that goes into effect throughout Los Angeles County in the March 3 primary election. California voters passed the Voter’s Choice Act in 2018 ushering in a modern digital voting system and also adding to the locations where voters can cast their ballots.

While far from perfect, county’s new voting system will help

Ah, technology. It’s a love and hate affair. The recent Iowa caucus—the nation’s first say in the 2020 presidential race—was a titanic win for the old pen-and-paper crowd. A broken mobile phone app, delayed results, frustrated candidates and worse— doubt in the reliability of the entire democratic process—cast a pall over the electoral process. But enough about Iowa. Could it […]


SOS against AVE

Have you ever been caught in unsafe conditions in the middle of the intersections of Agoura and Kanan roads and the southwest Kanan Bridge off-ramp during peak hours? Critical Agoura Hills’ intersections are now over capacity. This significant traffic impact is occurring now even though the massive Agoura Village East (AVE) proposed project has not been approved. The public environmental […]

Traffic a problem

Letters to the editor don’t put me in a frenzy, but sitting in stopped traffic while trying to run a quick errand certainly does. Driver Avenue in Old Agoura is a mess, and the absolute last thing we should do is add to the already growing disaster. Don’t even get me started on fire evacuation routes. I presented other options.

Residents want affordable units to stay that way

Right now we have 80 neighbors living here in Calabasas who are on pins and needles, who wake up every day wondering where they will live next year. These are the residents at Avalon- Bay who live in affordable units. We can answer their pleas by voting yes on Measure N, or we can roll out a long list of […]

Yes on N

Does Calabasas care? If yes, then vote yes on Measure N. AvalonBay Calabasas was first built with 80 affordable units. That requirement has expired and 80 families currently living in these apartments will be forced to leave, unless we vote yes on Measure N. The State of California is coming down hard on cites to build more affordable housing. In […]
