Re "Ose's park still a work in progress" (Page A1, Aug. 8): When I saw a story about Gibson Ranch, I thought it would update us on the hard work and funds Doug Ose has poured into the park. He kept it open without major expenditure of taxpayers' money and saved a recreational, educational and happy place for 250,000 or more of our residents.

When I read the story, it became clear that you ascribe to the glass is half empty theory of journalism. One might almost think you were out to malign Ose. Among other negative thoughts, you criticized him because the ranch pond wasn't filled and the grass was brown. Really? Evidently, you don't realize we are in the middle of the greatest drought in recent years. Water conservation should be our highest priority.

Your obvious attempt to politicize the effort to keep Gibson Ranch open does you no credit.
