A one-page flier, printed front and back, and entitled "Skateboarders on Steep Hills" was recently taped to our fence. Since the flier is reputed to have come from the "Bluebird Canyon" neighborhood (a neighborhood in which I live), I was interested in reading the message and perhaps getting in contact with the authors of the flier since it makes a number of assertions. I like to check the facts, and, unfortunately, wasn't able to since there wasn't any contact information in the flier except a plea to write or call my City Council members.
I am choosing to investigate the statements in a more efficient manner — the press. Let me begin with where I live — on the corner of Bluebird and Summit where I have a front-row seat on the driving practices of my neighbors who live up and down the hill as well as of the skateboarders going down it.
