Becky Hatch Bicyclists Last Friday I went down Banner Grade on my way to Borrego Springs. I was expecting a normal traveling experience and was stunned when rounding one of the sharp curves on the grade to encounter a group of bicyclists riding two and three abreast. Startled, I hit the brakes and horn hard. This didn't Seem to raze SOme of the bicyclists asthey continued their positfons'in the traffic lane, about three feet from the centerline. Upset, I passed them as safely as I could, continuing on down the grade, encountering other groups displaying the same, inconsiderate and dangerous behavior. At the bottom of the grade, I pulled into Banner Store parking lot where it appeared to be an assembly area for the riders. I voiied fny concern about them hogging the road, especially as there are numerous blind comers where motorists cannot see them in advance. The people I spoke to were indifferent, so I threatened to contact the CHP, to which they replied they already had. As I drove off, I was taunted by a few with derogatory remarks. Looking back on it, I realize now that the majority of the riders were youths, who carefully kept to the far right of the road. The adult chaperones were the ones riding in the middle of the road. This leads me to think we're doing some right and some wrong. We instruct our children to properly ride with traffic, but after a certain magical age decide we are above those rules. Perhaps we need licenses for bicyclists or training classes for the adults. As residents of Shelter Valley, Julian, Borrego Springs and surrounding areas we are familiar with our many narrow, twisty, turny roads so when we suddenly round a curve where there are bicyclists taking their / / / / / / r / / / emaU: leffers@luhannews,com \\;i share out of the middle of the road it is unnerving! Banner Grade is not the only road where these bicyclists lurk for us; they appear on SR- 78, Engineers Road, Boulder Creek, Eagle Peak, Wynola Road, Farmers Road and Pine Hills Road. BEWARE!! Kenny Overmiller Dear Congressman Issa, One question --- are you really supporting H.R. 1? This is the Republican budget bill that proposes cuts: in the WlC program which supports women, infants and children; in international food and health aid where 18 million people would be immediately cut off from a much- needed food stream and 4 million would lose access to malaria medicine; and in programs that aid farmers in underdeveloped countries. In parallel, food stamps are also being attacked in the twisted "Welfare Reform 2011" bill. These supposedly deficit- reducing cuts will quite literally cause more people to starve to death, go to bed hungry or live more miserably than are doing so now. They will barely make a dent in the deficit. And one more important part of H.R 1, the bill would increase defense spending. It is interesting to note some ironies and outrages. In 2010, corporate profits grew at their fastest rate since 1950, and we set records in the number of Americans on food stamps. The richest 400 Americans have more wealth than half of all American households combined. The effective tax rate on the nation's richest people has fallen by about half in the last 20 years, and General Electric paid zero dollars in U.S. taxes on profits of more than $14 billion. Meanwhile, roughly 45 million Americans spend a third of their post tax income on food and one in four kids goes to bed hungry at least some of the time. This is a moral issue; the budget is a moral document. We can take care of the deficit and rebuild our infrastructure and strengthen our safety net by reducing military spending and eliminating corporate subsidies and tax loopholes for the rich. Or we can sink further into debt and amoral individualism by demonizing and starving the poor. Are you really supporting H.R 1?
