Letters To The Editor

The 340B prescription-drug swindle has gone on long enough

In a recent hearing, former California Attorney General Xavier Becerra revealed just how unfit he is to lead the Department of Health and Human Services. Becerra dismissed the need to reform the federal “340B” program, even though it has morphed from a good-faith effort to help low-income ...

Safe foster homes needed more than ever

To the editor: Our world has been turned upside down for the past year by the pandemic. As our community continues to adjust to our “new normal” what remains the same? Child abuse and child neglect continue to turn children’s lives upside down every day. National Youth Advocate ...

Don’t put more reporting roadblocks in the way of good cops

To the editor: Sen. Cory Booker, N.J.-D, proposed police reform that was rejected by the GOP. Now it is the Democrats who are the obstacle to bipartisan accomplishment. The party blocked a police reform bill from Sen. Tim Scott that would have outlawed lynching/chocking suspects ...

Council should reconsider its golf cart ban

To the editor: I would like to have the City Council reconsider its vote to ban golf carts on side streets. A lot of people come to Cape Coral to work and possibly retire, and also for the weather. We came here 34 years ago for the same. My wife and I are now disabled and unable to get out ...

Ode to Piney Point

To the editor: A letter to the editor during national poetry month: I do not like DeSantis' plan Dumping toxics in Tampa bay again I do not like nitrogen Phosphorus nor radium Not in my water, gulf nor sea Not in my house nor community Should toxic dumping ...

College kids have a bar fight, city kids riot

To the editor: The new anti-riot bill coming out at the same time as the recent verdict works out well for some. Not only wasn’t there a riot (which there would and should have been if he was acquitted) but now they can do an even better job at selectively arresting Blacks. A bunch of ...

Children need to see our faces

To the editor: I realize that the issue of wearing facial coverings is a sensitive one. And, sometimes, a volatile one. However, I would like to share my thoughts on wearing facial coverings from the viewpoint of a childcare provider. Infants see at a distance of approximately eight to 15 ...

First line of defense

To the editor: As a retired member of the U.S. Foreign Service, I was proud to represent America in seven countries over my 29 years of service. I write this in advance of Foreign Service Day on May 7, a day designated by Congress to honor our active-duty and retired members of the Foreign ...
