The City Council voted 4 to 1 this week to immediately remove the 110-foot concrete slide from Gilman Park after the city's risk manager said it poses dangers that could lead to costly lawsuits. About 50 residents came to Tuesday's council meeting and more than 20 spoke for three hours about the slide and Gilman Park. Many pleaded with the council to save the custom-built slide, which was installed at the park in 1979.

The news of Ralph Diedrich's death came as a surprise to me and, I am sure, many of his friends. Although his career had many ups and downs, I knew him at a time in his life when his dynamic leadership style made a positive, lasting difference in the history of Fullerton. Unfortunately, the media's chronicling of Ralph's career tends to center about a shadowy phase of his political adventures, but there is a significant contribution he made to Fullerton that I believe needs recognizing.

For nearly 60 years, the Fullerton train station has stood alongside the Santa Fe Railroad line and since 1971 has been a regular stop for Amtrak trains. In that time this product of Spanish colonial architecture has been the victim of neglect. There are cracks in the plaster, dry rot in the wood and there is ceiling and floor damage from a leaky roof. But in a redevelopment effort, the Fullerton City Council has hired a local contractor to do at least $400,000 worth of restoration work and to get the building on the National Register, which would give it a historical designation.

But OCRAA officials who attended the City Council session in fear of a major defection didn't gain much satisfaction from the vote.

Concern over toxic pollutants fueled more than eight hours of public debate Monday night and early Tuesday morning before the Fullerton City Council finally voted unanimously to approve the Amerige Heights development planned at a former Hughes Aircraft site. Testimony was sharply split over the 1,250-home project at Malvern and Gilbert avenues, with about half arguing that the land was too contaminated to build on.
