For over thirty years Gloria dedicated her life to children’s theater and changing the lives countless kids in neighborhood. Please celebrate the life Gloria Watts at the Hidden Hills Community Center Theater on November Doors open 4pm for the 4:30pm Memorial Service.


OVER THE LAST 32 YEARS, more than 5,000 kids have memorized lines, learned song lyrics, mastered dance steps, and overcome opening night jitters so they could step into the spotlight on the Hidden Hills Children’s Theatre stage and shine like the stars that they are. They all share one common connection: Gloria Watts. Her name has become synonymous with children’s theater in the valley, and her dedication and encouragement for more than

three decades has culminated in an unparalleled program in the Hidden Hills community.

Gloria inherited her love of theater from her mother, who performed in vaudeville before spotting her strict Italian aunt and grandmother in the audience when her troupe toured in St. Louis. Gloria recalls, “My mom taught us all to sing fi st song was ud Garland’s ‘You Made Me Love You’.” Gloria continued performing until she had children of her own, at which time

she returned to college, earned a degree in education, and launched her own children’s theater program. Her three daughters always participated. Now grown, Katie acts and sings in the band Whitaker, I (Sara) teach and direct theater, and Mary, the youngest, is California politics (which Gloria jokes is also a “very dramatic business”).

Many of our children grew up along side lo ia s, eaping t e benefits o passion for theater and teaching. Gloria’s productions have graced the stages

Change is a fact of life, and it is part of our growth and expression as a community. In the seventeen years my family has lived here, many older homes have given way to beautiful renovations or new builds that have brought new families and a welcome enrichment to the community spirit that Hidden Hills has always been known for. I myself have even built two homes here for my family to live in. Recently however, a spike in older home turnovers has accelerated this process, bringing a wave of very large, incongruously built spechomes. Amid the resulting noise and dust, we have somehow lost sight of those core values that make Hidden Hills one of the most unique and coveted places to live.


Open space, tranquility, waving to neighbors atop their horses on DG parkways, a clear night sky… just a few qualities that set Hidden Hills apart. This lifestyle is irreplaceable and should be recognized as integral to the

dollar value of our homes. Think about it… before this building “boom”, wasn’t Hidden Hills already one of the most valued communities in the country? Of course, so why is our true character being traded for a “bigger is better” mentality, which will likely bring all our property values down when our open space is gone, and these immense homes begin to sit?


Homes here were once designed to meet the land. We didn’t reshape the land to meet the design. Construction was a product of plans that were subject to the discretion of the Architectural Committee…a process in which the integrity of the community was holistically considered. Today, our Architectural Committee is working harder than ever to keep up, but developers are persistent in wearing down resolve, resulting in over-grading, variances, and structures too big for the land. Coupled with a lack of project oversight, we’ve seen a huge impact on our community, not only in loss of character, but in t a fi , dis uption, and dust. (Yes…Construction will bring this regardless, but the amount is disproportionately more due to the size of these projects).


Although I hope the recently redrafted governing documents will be a step in the right direction, their effectiveness will not be known for quite some time...and they would be only one step of many needed to right our trajectory. This is the opportunity for four new leaders on the Board...a chance to establish a fair-minded majority, dedicated to preserving

balance within our community... Building and improving without overbuilding Working toward progress while not forgetting what makes this community amazing. Respectfully ensuring your voices are heard on issues large or small. If elected, I will work with fellow Board Directors to address these immediate issues as well as continue to enrich our spirit of community. Hidden Hills is the greatest place I’ve known, and I am committed to working tirelessly to preserve that which makes it so.

Dear Neighbor,

My wife Cindy and I moved into this amazing community in 1986, and we have been living here ever since. We raised two beautiful children in this community, Dylan and Ashlee. I have had two passions in my li e. e fi st being an a to and the second, a Horseman. I am truly fortunate to have been able to pursue both careers. I retired from acting many years ago, the

support for wounded veterans as well as Viewpoint School. After living in The Oaks for years, my family and I discovered Hidden Hills and fell instantly in love with its open space, community-centric feel, and rustic nature, a way of living so incredibly rare for Los Angeles. We looked at many houses a ailable at t e time, and finall found one perfect for us on Bridle Trail Rd. This was in 2016 when it was the norm for families to have an opportunity to buy a relatively modest home. That norm is sadly fading.

more than 60 years. I’ve lost count of the number of homes disappearing behind tall, green fences along our streets, only to be replaced by McMansions that look nearly the same. Have you found yourself behind a line of dump trucks after yet another of our hillsides has been scraped away? That’s the beauty of Hidden Hills they’re taking with them. Boundaries have been breached far beyond the intention of this community and it is chipping away at the very attributes that make this place such a coveted place to live.


My name is John Heubusch. I hope you’ll vote in favor of seating me on the Board of Directors of the Hidden Hills Community Association. My family and I have lived in other gated communities over the years, but none as special as Hidden Hills. In 2009, we relocated to this area after I became the Executive Director of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley. I also currently serve on the Board of Directors of the Gary Sinise Foundation which provides

Somewhat recently, as older homes here have turned over, a spec-home construction boom has loudly emerged. Ironically for us, Hidden Hills has begun to resemble an “Oakslike” community. Available properties that many families might otherwise have happily remodeled or renovated are being bought-up by developers before they hit the market. Families are being priced-out as private equity-style investors build to maximize square footage to reap p ofits and go t ei own wa . u trees are disappearing while open space is shrinking. Notice how many new homes are starting to look Identical to one another? I have. The peaceful nature of this place and its very personality are changing overnight.

I respect the rights of homeowners to develop their properties as they please in accordance with guidelines established by the community. And I respect a builder’s right to make an honest living. But I also believe we’re seeing a departure from our community’s basic protections in favor of large, ui p ofit building entu es. It’s destroying the neighborhood feel that’s thrived here for

If elected, I will oppose misguided overbuilding and work with my fellow Board Directors and Committee Members to address the problem. I’d like to be a positive force within our Association that allows for growth and change in character with the neighborhood feel that’s made Hidden Hills the special place it’s always been.

Thanks for your consideration.


I have served on the Hidden Hills Community Association

(HHCA) for the past years, during which time I have focused my efforts on promoting a feeling of community in this special neighborhood. I believe it’s important to be neighborly and to maintain strong personal relationships throughout Hidden Hills. In my career as a Financial Advisor, I am extremely “client-focused” and have taken that approach within our community I consider all of our residents “clients” in my Board capacity. I am committed to always act in the best interests of all residents and to promote and protect the general welfare of the community.

My career also gives me a level o fis al e pe tise t at as been invaluable in connection with my service on the Board. In addition to my general responsibilities as a Board member, I serve on the Executive Committee, I am Liaison to the Parks Recreation Committee, the Gates Committee, and the City Council (in connection with which I was appointed by the former Captain of the Lost Hills Sheriff’s Department to serve as the Hidden Hills representative to the Citizens Action Committee). As co-chair of the HOA Legislative Committee, I stay informed on current legislative initiatives and ensure that we are actively involved in any matters that impact our community. I am directly involved in the operation of our Farmers Market, and the organizer of our Food Trucks in Hidden Hills.

These positions keep me involved (and busy!) in the day-to-day operations of the HHCA, and I have actively participated in the effort to expand and re-organize

I hope to continue in my current capacity and use my knowledge, my skills, and my relationships to maintain a balance between preserving our traditions and ensuring our future in these changing times.

I want to apply my experience to problem solving by working with the other Board members and residents to make informed decisions that yield positive results for our community.

I would be honored to serve on your Board of Directors and I would appreciate your support. Please vote.


I have lived in Hidden Hills for the past 22 years. My wife Jodi and I have raised four children here and have cherished the years we have spent sharing Hidden Hills traditions with our family. Events like Fiesta, Thursday night barbeques, Welcome Parties for new residents set us apart from other neighborhoods. We love the country atmosphere, the street trees, the horse trails and the open space. Hidden Hills is a special place, and I want to help preserve the unique character of the community as it grows and prospers. I own and operate a large business locally and

AFiesta is defined as an event marked by festivities or a celebration. Seems like an understatement after the months of planning for Hidden Hills Annual Fiesta. Guided by memories of times gone by (“Pioneer Days”) and excitement for new activities in celebration of our beloved Hidden Hills (“Modern Ways”). Tradition never lets us down and the Fiesta Weekend has always been two days to honor our unique heritage and commemorate what makes us the envy of all.

This year, tradition and modern ways were combined. The weekend began on Saturday morning with our time honored Parade, with this year’s Grand Marshall being our very own World Champion Los Angeles Rams. The parade of decorated floats, golf carts, the Calabasas Trolley, horses, and marching bands culminated at the Community Center before treasured announcers David Stanley and Howard Tenenbaum. The infamous “Kitty’s Booth” was open early, serving donuts and drinks with a smile by Debbie Seror, Sandy Kaye and long timer friends of Kitty. This was followed by the hugely popular In-N-Out Burger lunch, games, activities, and Arts and Crafts entertainment for the kids, including the beloved Pet Contest hosted by Susie Rome and Michael Silberman. Shannon Hartkopf hosted the traditional Bake Contest while the Watkins Family helmed the always spicy Chili Cook-Off. Lucia Jacobson and Andrea Stanley set

up a beautiful Art Show displaying many artistic mediums created by our talented neighborhood children and adults.

The highly anticipated Carnival Rides and Games commenced at the Spring Valley Arena which became the home to fun, family-friendly rides, including a Ferris wheel, bumper cars, the Cliffhanger, giant slide, and roller coasters. Over a thousand guests enjoyed a night of activities including a deliciously catered Fiesta barbeque dinner by Bella Donna.

The fun continued on Sunday at the Community Center with our annual morning Equestrian Services Committee hosted Pancake Breakfast. By Sundown, the Adult Art Show was on display while others admired the many vintage and sport vehicles in the Car Show managed by Steve Weber and Rob Raznick as Lesley Marvin once again chose the perfect Wine Exchange menu with Chef Marcus’s Gourmet Pizza Station and Ukrainian desserts by Dasha.

The HHCA Parks Recreation Committee celebrated our Seniors by presenting an intimately catered luncheon and an engaging live music program in the theater. The Valley Opera Performing Arts (VOPA) is currently in its 17th season of bringing opera and other musical genres to Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley and beyond. Pianist Jerry Brown from VOPA conducted a musical repertoire that roused musical memories and nostalgia, and stimulated greater community among our most venerable populace. Shira Renee Thomas, Dylan F. Thomas, and Edward Tavalin alternated singing twelve songs, including opera with “O Mio Babbino Caro” (Puccini), musical theater works like “Maybe This Time” from Cabaret, to laid

back jazz standards like “I Left My Heart in San Francisco,” and even classic rock classics like “Unchained Melody” by the Righteous Brothers.

In addition to the sheer joy of social engagement with friends and the ability to be active in the arts, creative expression promotes health benefits such as enhanced neurological functioning. Through VOPA Company’s entertainment outreach, Hidden Hills was gifted the power of music bringing connectivity to our older brothers and sisters with an elegant production enjoyed by all.

The son of a Pastor raised in Corona, California, he started playing classical piano at five years old. Spending his childhood performing in church gave him the strong foundation to start a punk rock band in junior high and by the age of twelve he added bass and guitar to his repertoire. Fast forward a few decades and presently he is best known as a musician, singer-songwriter, and record producer who has written and produced songs for Aloe Blacc, Capital Cities, Barns Courtney, American Authors, Rooney, Ke$ha, Echosmith, OneRepublic, Welshly Arms, Joy Williams, James Arthur, Phillip Phillips, Hailee Steinfeld, Ruelle, Michelle Branch, Five for Fighting, Lenka, and Meiko. He is also a former member of the multi-platinum band OneRepublic, and a solo artist whose single “Lover

My Love” reached #5 on the Billboard Dance Charts. In addition, he is founder of Palladium Records, which has signed over 30 artists.

Even though enthusiastic teachers supported Tim’s creative efforts by allowing his band to perform in class, school sponsored assemblies, and events, it wasn’t until he was in high school that he received a formal arts education. Today only one in five California public schools has a full-time accredited arts or music teacher, and arts education are frequently the first programs to get cut. Proposition 28 is a measure on the November 8, 2022 statewide ballot that would increase access to arts and music education for students in every PreK-12 public school, both traditional arts, dance and music classes and

contemporary arts like graphic design, film, computer coding and video. While some of the money might be spent on supplies, the bulk of it would be set aside for hiring an estimated 15,000 new part or full time instructors.

at Viewpoint and Round Meadow Elementary Schools, even though they have personally experienced cutbacks in the Las Virgenes Municipal School District. “We are so blessed in Hidden Hills with all the theater we do here. My girls have probably been in twelve plays now in all the theater programs. That has really helped them flourish in the arts, where they can get up in front of a bunch of people and feel free to sing and have confidence and stage presence. If we weren’t living in Hidden Hills then we wouldn’t be doing amazing theater programs like this.”

Many schools, especially in affluent communities like Hidden Hills traditionally rely on parent fundraising or volunteerism to support arts offerings. After Tim and Lauren witnessed the increased poise their children gained from performing, they wanted to guarantee all students have equal access to opportunities within the arts. This measure would improve equity with additional funding for schools that serve more economically disadvantaged families. The impacts of underfunded arts and music education in our public schools fall hardest on low income communities, and particularly the Black and Latino students who comprise 61% of total PreK-12 enrollment and 77% of enrollment in low income communities. Funding arts education, including underserved communities, will help close this gap.

An arts education improves math and reading skills, fosters creative and critical thinking, improves self confidence and mental health, and helps prepare children for good paying jobs.

Tim has witnessed firsthand “different people who have been influenced by music and arts, whether it be Steve Jobs and how artistic the iphone, ipad and ipod are. With Elon Musk and how the Tesla is a work of art. I think music and arts oozes into other sectors, whether it is technology or other corporations. Having creative mind power is important. That is what the arts does: it opens up the brain to think outside the box and creatively work with other students. It is just as important as math and science. This proposition makes it core curriculum in perpetuity.”

Proposition 28 ensures all million students in public schools will have access to the foundational education needed to participate with our state’s creative economy and that companies in the creative economy will have access to the diverse workforce they need to succeed No formal opposition campaign has emerged and artists like

Tim and Christina Aguilera are working with sponsors like Austin Beutner, a former investor who has served as LA Unified Superintendent and CalArts Board Chair, in leading a coalition of educators, entrepreneurs and arts and music leaders in support of Proposition 28, to increase arts and music education for students in every PreK-12 public school in California.

Proposition 28 is a widely supportive initiative that would provide more than $900 million every year specifically to arts and music education in California public schools without raising taxes. The funding comes from the state General Fund, which currently has a nearly $100 billion surplus. The measure protects existing school education funding for arts and music education by requiring the state to set aside 1% of revenue in the general fund for arts education. Tim reminds all his Hidden Hills neighbors that all public school students deserve a more comprehensive arts education which can be gained by voting “Yes on Prop 28” in the upcoming November 8th election.

and siblings, the family settled in New York to live on Paine’s farm, which was bequeathed to the Bonneville family when Paine died in 1809. He entered West Point Military Academy at seventeen, graduating after two years as a brevet second lieutenant of light artillery. He served in posts in New England, Mississippi, and the Arkansas Territory. In 1824, he was transferred to Fort Gibson, Indian Territory and shortly thereafter promoted to Captain. After traveling home to France as an escort and aide to the Marquis de Lafayette, Bonneville was transferred to Jefferson Barracks, Missouri in 1828. It was here he became inspired to explore the American West after reading the writings of Hall J. Kelley, as well as from the editorials in the St. Louis Enquirer, which was edited by Thomas Hart Benton.

available to American citizens. They built a fur trading post named Fort Bonneville in present day Wyoming Territory. After reaching the Rocky Mountains, his expedition was one of the first to successfully traverse the South Pass with wagons, a trail that would prove essential to the overland emigration that followed a decade later.

uch like its namesake, Bonneville Road is a private street with a committed ascent that opens to a beautiful panoramic view from one of the city’s highest center points. In a journey that spanned three years, Benjamin Bonneville led a company of men who discovered some of what became the Oregon Trail. He explored and surveyed territory that would become the Pacific Northwest states, interacted amicably with Indian tribes, and drew one of the first published maps of the interior West.

Benjamin Louis Eutalie Bonneville was born in Paris in 1796 to French political radicals Nicolas and Margaret Bonneville, who were friends of political activist Thomas Paine. Fleeing Napoleonic France in 1803 with his mother

Appointed to lead an earlier canceled 1832 expedition to the Oregon Country left him anxiously desiring to join the westward movement. He petitioned for a leave of absence from the military arguing that he could perform valuable reconnaissance among the Native Americans, especially in the Pacific Northwest, which at the time was largely controlled by the Hudson Bay Company. His furlough was granted with the stipulation that he gather as much information as he could to provide to the federal government.

On May 1, 1832, Bonneville left Fort Osage, Missouri with 110 men, including Lieutenant Michael Silvestre Cerré and Captain Joseph Rutherford Walker, assorted mules, horses, oxen, and twenty wagons. Bonneville’s charge was to explore the topography of the West and find the best means of making land

As the expedition explored along the Snake River in presentday Idaho, Bonneville directed another party under the leadership of Lieutenant Joseph Walker to explore the Great Salt Lake to try to find an overland route to California. Walker was successful, blazing a trail along the Humboldt River across Nevada and discovering a pass across the Sierra Nevada Mountains that would be named for him. Walker Pass and the path he had blazed later became known as the California Trail and was much used during the Gold Rush. Much speculation has surrounded Bonneville’s motivation for sending Walker with some historians speculating that Bonneville was attempting to lay the groundwork for an eventual invasion of California, then part of Mexico, by the United States Army.

Throughout the journey, the trapping expedition for furs went poorly yet they successfully found new territory. Bonneville and his party had trouble establishing trading relationships with Native groups because the Hudson’s Bay

38 The Hidden Hills Register & Resource Guide | November 2022

Company controlled trade in much of the Pacific Northwest, making it difficult to connect with tribes along the Columbia River even though they had previously created strong relationships with Nez Percé and Flatheads during the first parts of their journey. Having failed to obtain and trade furs, Bonneville was without money or provisions, and morale among the men was low. Overstaying his military leave by two years, Bonneville returned to Missouri in 1835 with little success at trading, but with an understanding of Oregon topography, plants, animals, and Native people.

In 1836, Bonneville failed in an attempt to publish his travel journals, so he sold the manuscript to American author Washington Irving for $1000. During his lifetime, his explorations were made famous by Irving, who published an edited version of Bonneville’s adventures along with his maps as The Adventures of Captain Bonneville. The book featured his

published trail journals confirming the possibility of wagon travel west over the divide in 1837. Although Irving praised Bonneville in the book, many explorers and historians thought the well-respected officer was an inept explorer who often took credit for the successes of Cerré and Walker.

After his foray exploring the American West, Bonneville returned to the U.S. Army, retaining his rank of major as he fought in the Mexican-American War of 1845, and as a commanding officer in the Civil War. He eventually gained promotion to Brigadier Colonel, a reward for his many faithful years in the service. He retired from the military in 1866, and in 1871, married twenty-two-year-old Susan Neis, having lost his first wife and child almost ten years prior.

Benjamin Bonneville was an explorer and proud officer who helped both the government and overland emigrants find their way west with the maps he made of the

western landscape. He died on June 12, 1878 in the farmhouse he built near Fort Smith, Arkansas and was buried in Bellefontaine Cemetery, St. Louis, Missouri. He took his orders seriously, committing his life to fulfilling his obligations as best he could and at the time of his death he was the U.S. Army’s oldest retired officer at the age of 82.

The Hidden Hills trails system consists of approximately 25 miles of primarily off road dirt trails that are open to equestrians and pedestrians. All types of vehicles are prohibited, including bicycles, cars, trucks, motorcycles, scooters, and golf carts. Riding horses on the streets can be challenging due to trash and construction trucks, speeding vehicles and other hazards that easily spook horses.


California law provides that the driver of any vehicle approaching a horse drawn vehicle, any ridden animal, or livestock should exercise proper control of his vehicle and must reduce speed or stop as may appear necessary to avoid frightening the animal and to insure safety of the person in charge of the animal. Motorists encountering riders are instructed to slow to 10mph or stop to give the horse plenty of room. Section 21805 of the California Motor Vehicle Code provides that vehicles must yield to equestrians, in other words horses and other livestock have the right of way!

With miles of trails and open spaces, our community provides a glimpse into a forgotten California. One trail that provides a perspective of the older versus newer views of Hidden Hills runs parallel to Long Valley Road in the center of our community. Enter the trail next to 5636 Round Meadow Road and continue on this wide tree and vineyard lined route behind Wingfield Road. By progressing along the slight upward slope, one is given an opportunity to view the vistas that include gorgeous mature trees and

hills dotted with original ranch homes contrasted against newer housing projects.

This path continues for about a mile until it becomes difficult for pedestrians and equestrians alike due to the steep descent. Fortunately during the climb there are several exits that lead onto Wingfield Road or Hoback Glen Road (if one is willing to climb a 30-40% grade.) Further down the trail there is another path that leads to Little Hollow Road. This trail affords the ability to make a longer trip by examining all the many offshoots which can wind the traveler along many different routes. It

is common sense to stay on the trails and not take short cuts across private property, however tempting it is when adjacent to our neighbors’ backyards.

Remember it is the responsibility of bicyclists and motorized vehicle drivers to yield the right of way to pedestrians and horses at intersections, trail heads, and roads so our two and four-legged residents of all ages can enjoy the surroundings in a safe manner. Dogs must be on leashes, and stay aware of your surroundings because packs of coyotes have been recently seen traveling along these same paths during daylight hours.

Aer a long, extremely hot summer, the idea of a late fall stay at a working cattle ranch in a rustic luxury setting is quite appealing, especially among those who enjoy riding among cool breezes and fall foliage. e good news is that one doesn’t have to travel outside of California to enjoy an immersive vacation taking full advantage of the rugged landscape.

e recently completed and opened Inn at Newport Ranch, three and a half hour’s drive outside of San Francisco, is part of a 2100-acre coastal working cattle ranch and timber preserve on the site of what was

the former town of Newport just outside Mendocino. Although the ranch itself has been under the same family ownership since 1986, the recently constructed Inn is the culmination of the family’s dream to share this magni cent property with others.

e Inn, devised by renowned architects Dave Sellers and Jim Sanford of Warren, Vermont, is anked by a mile and a half of oceanfront, three miles of ridge tops, panoramic coastal views and 25 miles of world class trails through redwoods and along the coast. e architects’ design is contemporary yet harmonious with nature as well as the history of the area. Distinctive architectural hallmarks throughout the

property include a 20-foot-wide walkin stone replace, a building with an impressive cathedral-like ceiling supported by 24 individual redwood trees, and a hot tub on top of a water tower that presents commanding views of the ocean and redwood forest.

As a whole, e Inn has six rooms and four suites that can accommodate up to 26 overnight guests and build upon the public areas’ architectural style. Depending on the room or suite (each with its own theme and appointments), guests may nd paneling and a mantel piece from the original ranch house, headboards from single burls and redwood slabs, replaces with single stone
