I’ve never known a holiday in my family to go off without a hitch; they all result in a special form of madness. This year’s Christmas get together was no different. 

The pans we’d used to cook a few of the Christmas dinner dishes in had glue on the bottom, which, subsequently, burned in the oven, sending plumes of black smoke into the kitchen and living room. Dogs were barking, relatives were yelling and our Brussels sprouts and stuffing smelled and tasted like burnt plastic. 

It was perfect.

The Malibu girls basketball team’s fight for a CIF playoff berth will likely be decided this week with three home games at Malibu High School.

The Sharks host Fillmore on Wednesday night at 7 p.m., League-leading Carpinteria Thursday night at 7 p.m. and Cate Saturday at 3 p.m.

The Sharks stayed in the hunt with a split last week.  

MHS began the week Tuesday at home with an impressive win over Villanova Prep, 32-26. But on Thursday on the road the Sharks were blitzed by Thacher, 49-32.

Dear Editor,

Our Chumash people have thrived on this beautiful and biologically rich coastline for more than 15,000 years. The outrageous proposal to extract more offshore oil by injecting high-pressure water and toxic chemicals to fracture the earth would offend my ancestors – frankly, it offends me.
