Re "Ose's park still a work in progress" (Page A1, Aug. 8): Can you imagine being a taxpayer and forking up the cost for a closed local park? I am shocked that you attacked a local small business owner for turning a run-down park into a beautiful sprawling ranch. The way you spoke about the hazardous material on Gibson Ranch made it seem like Doug Ose was storing nuclear waste. I just want to point out to you that thanks to the overbearing government regulations in this county and our state, hazardous material can be anything from an extra can of paint to fuel for a lawnmower, or Roundup to manage weeds, etc. I not only thank Ose for saving my taxpayer dollars, I thank him for helping out the local community by preserving our park. Once again, your reporters have failed to tell the real story. Please be more objective in you reporting.
