Letters To The Editor

Legal immigration, not wide-open borders

To the editor: Isn’t about time that somebody told our Congressmen enough with the excuses, stop the flood gates through the border from Mexico; stop rewarding those who come here illegally with free welfare benefits and, least but not less, taking our Social Security monies and giving ...

Guest commentary: We have much for which to be thankful

To our community, With the winter holidays now vividly on the horizon, I would like to take a moment to send a special message about my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving. By definition, this holiday asks us to focus on “setting aside time to give thanks for one’s blessings.” During this ...

Fantastic Veterans Parade in the Cape

To the editor: What a wonderful Veterans Parade! More than 54 units all marching or riding to celebrate our veterans. A big thank you to Raso Reality, Cape Coral City Hall, and all the volunteers who all put this on for all our residents to include our veterans, families and all the others ...

Plea for diversity ignored

To the editor: As we approach Thanksgiving, there is good news to be grateful for. In February, unemployment was 6.3% and the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office projected it would take until the end of 2023 for the nation to reach 4.6% unemployment. But, because of the American ...

Governance via executive order is not democracy

To the editor: Executive privilege is out of order. Biden is mandating all workers of employers over 100 to have vaccinations with fines of $14,000 per unvaccinated employee. But somewhere between 1 and 3 million (no one knows how many get through without being detained) immigrants who ...

Guest commentary: Rights of Nature: the right side of history

As the public waits upon the Army Corps of Engineers’ LOSOM report to learn just how much polluted water each coast will be get, The Last Duel is in theaters now. Interestingly, it provides an important perspective on our water problems. This true story revolves around the rape of a ...
