  1. “The SUV driver was not injured”. And in other news, water is still wet, the sky is blue where there aren’t clouds and it gets dark at night. You have a vehicle that weighs in excess of 2 tons hitting a person that might weigh as much as 200 pounds, does anyone not know that the driver is perfectly safe inside the semi-armored vehicle of a modern-day car/SUV?

    Can someone please get Opus ‘The Pest’ off this page. He is a complete idiot and doesn’t have a single clue what he is talking about. 6-9 lane highway? Its a two lane road, not even striped. This guy is a moron. I used to live right there. His ignorant comments are an insult to a boy I’ve known for 15 years. This Opus gentleman is disturbed….

In all the many times I’ve written about the dump in the last couple of months, I kept thinking all the folks involved had at least a little bit of honor and ethics left. I’ve found out I was wrong on that, too.

We were not thinking about moving from Valencia Hills until the day I walked my dog along a street in Newhall and followed the flight of a turkey vulture that landed in a tree in a deep backyard. My family was not sure if I was losing my mind when I proposed to move to this small house without a pool but with a turkey vulture roost - but move we did.
