Dear ladies and gentlemen concerned over the imminent start-up of the Monticello Preparatory School in Hasley Canyon:
We understand that the city wants to keep children safe when they go to the park. When we went to Seco Park, we discovered that our favorite slide, the Robot Slide, was surrounded by bars, preventing us from playing on it.

I'm usually not one for conspiracies, but the evidence shows that Southern California Edison and the California Public Utilities Commission are in cahoots to destroy the visual landscape of Santa Clarita Valley.
