Our readers wrote letters throughout 1990 expressing their viewpoints on a variety of issues. Here are condensed versions of some of those letters to help us remember the events that mattered to Orange County readers this past year. We would like to thank the readers who took the time to share their viewpoints and look forward to hearing from them and others in 1991. : Park Giveaway in Laguna Niguel

December 30, 1990

Jim Krembas of Laguna Niguel is not a bad fellow. I almost voted for him. The fact that he signed away the Salt Creek Park to developers is not his fault. He didn't do it deliberately, he says.

Moreover, he claims that he read it but didn't understand what he was signing. (That's the kind of man we want running our local government. He's honest!)

Maybe he couldn't read it properly because he's nearsighted, which is not his fault, or maybe he didn't understand it because it was written in legalese which nobody understands (except lawyers and they don't tell, claiming privilege like a priest). So we can't blame him for not being up on legalese talk.

Perhaps he felt that Laguna Niguel had enough parks, and parks could cause mothers and fathers to bring their children and waste time when they should be working and being productive. (It's far-fetched, but it's an argument.)

Jim Krembas says there was no relations between his actions as a public official and his wife's employment with the builders, Taylor Woodrow Homes. I believe him. I don't think his wife is related to Taylor Woodrow Homes. Now, I want to ask, if someone you did a little favor for approaches your wife and offers her a good job, would you make her stay home and bake cookes?
