Letters To The Editor

Be a friend to wildlife; nix Piney Point project

To the editor: As President of Cape Coral Friends of Wildlife, the proposed development of the Piney Point wetlands that is located in Cape Coral directly south of Rotary Park is to me problematic on many levels. The plans call for 800 residential units, 300 hotel rooms, 38,000 square feet of ...

We can all do our part…

To the editor: Big fun on Saturday! Dump hazardous waste at City hall near the Police Department! Saturday, Aug. 7, from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. waste can be deposited of the unsafe kind: batteries, paint, chemicals etc… anything you don’t want in your drinking water should a hurricane flood ...

Taxpayer dollars should not be used subsidize city charter schools

To the editor: After reading a recent article in another paper about the city of Cape Coral attempting to acquire sales tax dollars for their city charter schools, I need to say the following. When we, the citizens of Lee County, voted for the additional half cent sales tax, we did so to ...

NOAA and Watermen test Matlacha waters

To the editor: Last Wednesday, the Florida Commercial Watermens’ Conservation (FCWC) teamed with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to begin a program for testing the waters of the Matlacha Pass Aquatic Preserve and the adjacent North Spreader Canal in Cape Coral which ...

Stop the blame game and face reality

To the editor: The recent letter you published on July 23, “Help Immigrants, not smugglers,” deserves a response. A response, not because I agree with it, but because it really makes no sense. It struck a nerve that needs a reply. The writer’s argument seems to put down the ...

Guest Commentary: Paddling upstream

Today, we are at the intersection of state power and citizen determination. Our state legislators have restricted our ability to petition the government at the very moment we are watching our waters — the lifeblood of our community — be degraded and abused to the point of making us sick. ...

Cape Coral’s Piney Point: Wetlands at risk

To the editor: Wetlands are critical to Florida’s environment and economy. We know this. They act as natural filtration systems for water and pollution. They control floods and provide storm protection, ever more important as the threat of flooding and storm damage increases with climate ...

Help immigrants, not smugglers

To the editor: Checks to anyone who claims children residing as dependents in the U.S. went out July 15. Adding an additional $1 trillion to the national debt annually, the child credit checks were mailed by the IRS last week to all families. Thanks to Marco Rubio these checks come regardless ...
