Letters To The Editor

Addressing homelessness with tax dollars is not appropriate

To the editor: Regarding the article, “Cape looks to address homelessness,” published Dec. 25, on page 1A: Homelessness should not be a focus of the City Council. In a short two-week period, Councilmember Jennifer Nelson has taken the city from a workshop on exploring the issue of ...

Lack of affordable housing one root cause of homelessness

To the editor: The city council has talked about studying the problem of homelessness. That discussion is moot — there are many problems that cause homelessness and yes, there needs to be a solution, but studying it is not one. I will say that we as a community need to come together on this ...

Guest commentary: Corps steps down harmful Lake Okeechobee releases

In a much-anticipated decision on Dec. 3, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced that it would begin cutting back freshwater releases to the Caloosahatchee from Lake Okeechobee. This was not only welcome news for the Caloosahatchee estuary, which has received ecologically damaging flows ...

Council discussion on homelessness misdirected

To the editor: Concerning the Council spending time on the homeless problem. Please focus your energy on taxpayers’ needs and the tax dollars that we have entrusted you to spend wisely. Most taxpayers give generously to charities and religious organizations that work to help the poor and ...
