Gary Horton, in his column of Aug. 19 ("Fear shouldn't be a pre-existing condition"), has seemingly forgotten that government does not provide health care, police protection or public education.

Doug Sink: The Decoro Drive change should be reversed

My neighbors, coworkers and I are impacted by the Decoro re-striping and elimination of two traffic lanes to install unnecessary bike lanes, and frustrated residents who have seen the city of Santa Clarita's engineers fix something that was not broken without even consulting with or advising us.
