At the time, Barack Obama was a little known freshman senator from Illinois; Taylor Swift hadn’t yet released her first album, and the iPhone was still a super-secret project at Apple.

The front page stories were, as they are now, about the people, places and events that make Camarillo so unique.

Dressed in a gold top hat and wearing a star-studded vest, a then 9-year-old Michaela Posner appeared in a front page photograph smiling and dancing during a rehearsal for that year’s CineMagic production. She was a fourth-grader at University Preparation School.
