Letters: More children can now play soccer

“Artificial turf moves ahead for park fields,” The City, Wednesday

More children can now play soccer

After numerous poltical and legal setbacks, the final Hail Mary appeal called Proposition H was rejected at the polls Tuesday. The clock has run out on opponents of lighted soccer fields in Golden Gate Park.

The convincing win of Proposition I puts the ball squarely in the back of the net for vastly underserved youth recreational opportunities. Let's play some ball!

“GOP wins Senate, keeps House,” News, Wednesday

Lawmakers' wins sent clear message

In a stunning rebuke to President Barack Obama, the American people have voted overwhelmingly to vest majority control of the Senate in the hands of the GOP. The GOP also increased its House majority.

Score it a major victory for common sense, patriotism, and good, old-fashioned American family values. Once again, Americans can rest comfortably in the knowledge that our government is, for the most part, in the hands of people who respect and love the Constitution and the rule of law.
