Golfers soon learn that it is discourteous to stare into someone’s backyard and home while playing golf. This should be true for residents walking on trails in Scripps Ranch. I live on a green belt and many times I endure curious hikers staring into my backyard.
A rule that is broken continuously is the leash law. I agree that it is a true pleasure to allow a dog to run free. However, it can be dangerous when someone surprises a dog around a bush. The dog is too far away for the owner to control. So, please be a good neighbor. And, be courteous and obey the current leash law.
August 12, 7:30 pm. I went outside to water the plants and dust away the cobwebs from the garage light under my 3 x 5 American flag only to find it had been taken down. I live on Caminito Memosac in the Grove condos. I have displayed the flag continuously since September 11 to show my support for our country, New York City, and all the service activity since then.
To me, I remember two things about that flag. One was its sight as I turned onto Caminito Memosac. Secondly, it helped me deal with the pain I have felt because of September 11, and reminded me of my family’s pain and concern for me when I was in harms way 30 years ago, in another place far away from home and at war.
I will replace the flag tomorrow because I want to believe in a better life tomorrow. But, it will take time to respect the one person who could have asked me to have the flag as his or her own. I miss my flag.
