Senior citizens deserve more

Friday, September 28th, 2012
Issue 39, Volume 16.

Bette Davis once quipped, "Getting old ain’t for sissies!" No kidding; and the seniors of Sun City are anything but sissies. They demand life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. This is why they are a formidable foe to those who assume they’re pushovers. 

Sun City is unified by the 55+ age restriction only. They’re diverse in religion, political affiliation and cultural background. But, they are united in wanting public safety, safer roads, and reduction in traffic, better markets, better restaurants and places of activity.

They’d like the flood areas on Bradley and Murrieta Road repaired – during the rainy season they get trapped. Bike lanes Advertisement

are already set aside for the bike riders, so why not install a golf cart lane from Sun City to the Countryside Market Place? Many folks rely solely on a golf cart for transportation, why neglect them? They are weary of fighting traffic and wasting gas to see a movie, dine in a fine restaurant, attend a concert or go bowling in Temecula or Murrieta.

These are the amenities Sun City and Menifee should offer to all its citizens. It makes economic sense as well. What’s spent here, stays here. Most of all, the citizens of Sun City demand respect.
