Joe Sternbaum, Dana Point
A strange thing happened to me the other day. I dropped by the senior center on Del Obispo, basketball in hand, stopped by the front desk and asked the lady for approval to shoot some hoops.
The gym was empty, she said “No.”
I explained that I’m a senior and even have proof were that to be necessary. She explained “No basketball in the gym for seniors” was permitted. The only basketball activities permitted are for “youth basketball.”
Am I missing something here?
Please indulge me one final comment. I’m a senior resident homeowner of Dana Point who still plays basketball (indoor only) but is not permitted to use the basketball gym at the Dana Point Community Center, which is the exclusive province of young people. Has senility begun to set in?
