Sanity says no street name change for Walker, Rodas

Hey, there is some sanity in the SCV!

Thanks, Betty Arenson (as usual), Kevin Eliason (ditto), and Glen Sherman (“An open letter to the city of Santa Clarita,” Dec. 23; “Street name change proposal is bad idea,” Jan. 3; “Don’t rename Hercules Street,” Jan. 3.)

Hopefully, people will think twice about renaming Hercules Street for Paul Walker and Roger Rodas, the two men killed Nov. 30 while apparently speeding in the area.
Kevin’s suggestion has so much merit to it that I’m surprised the City Council didn’t think of it.

I’m not putting Walker and friend down. I understand he did some really nice and thoughtful charity things, but those of our locals who have given their all — either through service in the military or as first-responders — really should be considered first.

Walker was a celebrity. Our local men are heroes.
