Letters To The Editor

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 ...

Guest commentary: District services continue through the summer

Summer break — time to review, rest, relax, renew, and refresh our bodies, minds, and spirits As we reflect on this past school year, we find ourselves in a changing environment. We have been faced with the challenge of identifying ways to continue serving students and families. Our ...

Help kids in foster care

Across Florida, thousands of children enter the state’s child welfare system each year. The hope is it’s just a temporary placement and children will eventually be reunited at home with their biological parents. Unfortunately, a permanent solution is often needed. In either case, these ...

No Disney ending in Afghanistan

To the editor: Afghanistan’s failed government; more interested in divvying up the crumbs of U.S. taxpayers’ graft than the tedium of governance, will crumble upon the departure of U.S.-led troops. Having squandered over 7,000 American lives, close to 200,000 Afghanis, adding $2 trillion ...

Politics and propaganda

To the editor: This morning, a couple of the electric transformers in my neighborhood suffered two “well-aimed” lightning bolts, bringing darkness to us and also cleaning our ears, not to mention frightening my puppy dog, Elliot, nearly out of his mind! Later, a very fine, well-spoken ...
