Senior race track?

   For over 20 years, Canterbury Mobile Park has been such a nice, clean, and quiet place to live. Now we have more signs than an interstate highway. Stop signs at every corner. Speed signs about every 100 feet. Speed bumps at every corner and every 50 to 100 feet.

   It seems that the Board of Directors feels that we live at the Indy 500 for seniors. I cannot remember when anyone got run over in the past 20-plus years from speeding cars. We do not have a through street, just a circle. There is only one way in and one way out. Maybe that is why the Board thinks we do have a racetrack.

   It seems our money should go for something more useful for the park to benefit everyone--maybe to pay the salary of an armed guard stationed at the front gate, just like a military base or prison.
