Letters To The Editor

Data, technology and sustainable growth

To the editor: The future of any city nowadays, in my opinion, relies a great deal upon what attention is given to these three things. America as a whole was and continues to be built by local leadership and local initiatives. Our city’s elected leadership, therefore, ought to be best ...

What I like about Joe Biden and why I will vote for him

To the editor: I have repeatedly seen Joe Biden exhibit humility, modesty and a sincere pride in his humble beginnings. I can relate to that and the fact that neither of us have had an Ivy League education. As a lifelong public servant, he has demonstrated the integrity to be trusted to do ...

Who would Washington choose?

Who would Washington pick as president? By Washington I mean the father of our country. I would like you to think about it. You’re in Philadelphia in 1787 with a group of men and you just won a war for independence and are now in a debate to set the laws that will make the foundation of a new ...

Stay tuned…

To the editor: Political advertising is exaggeration at its extreme. Everyone does it and it must work with enough for people to throw $1.4 billion just at the Senatorial races to date. For all political offices it could be in the range of $5-10 billion. Exaggeration is one thing but some ...

Talk about scary

To the editor: The scariest aspect of Biden being our president is in handling the very complex and difficult job of foreign affairs to which the president has the most authority. Compare Trump’s management to Obama/Biden’s management. Under Obama/Biden, the Middle East went from ...

The essence of democracy

Boat parade puts pressure on already-polluted waters

To the editor: This letter is a further elaboration on the poor water quality recently described in recent media accounts. Jim Frock, the owner of Seven Seas Bait and Tackle in Matlacha, explained that the poor water quality is ruining the fishing and his business. I live in northwest Cape ...

Elimination of payroll tax would heavily impact Social Security benefits

To the editor: According to AARP the Social Security retirement benefit is currently solvent through 2035, assuming no changes to contributions and no increases in benefits. The FICA tax supplies most of the funds for the benefits paid to currently retired seniors and disabled workers. (89% ...

Bad-mouthing Trump doesn’t diminish his accomplishments

To the editor: I can not believe people that praise Biden and down President Trump. Biden has a press meeting and there he is, talking to a teleprompter and talking like he actually knows something, and, maybe, 10 reporters. Today he was bad mouthing Trump for saying things against the ...
