Letters To The Editor

Guest commentary: Deepening concern for cyclists sharing Lee roadways

The population in Lee County continues to grow and, along with this growth, comes an increasing number of motor vehicles on our roadways and a larger number of residents enjoying biking. Both drivers and cyclists have responsibilities, as per Florida Statute, in regard to the safe operation ...

Honoring the sacrifices of our nation’s true heroes

To the editor: In reading many of the submitted and published letters to the editor, I see so many wannabe heroes in print profess their knowledge on how to make a better America. These authors submit their policy changes and knowledge from the comfort of their homes without ever knowing ...

Pay it forward for all who have served or serve

To the editor: I want to share an experience with all the proud people of the Lee island communities that occurred last Friday evening, Nov. 6, while my wife and I were dining at Miceli’s. I was wearing my Gary Sinise R.I.S.E. Foundation shirt when a man approached me at the table and ...

Governor, where are the actuaries?

To the editor: While biking and boating around Cape Coral I have seen profanity displayed on flags, yard signs, window stickers and bumper stickers. When I was younger I was taught that profanity is a true confession of one’s inability to express themself intelligently. Also it shows ...

Sign of the times?

To the editor: Coming to residential Cape Coral neighborhoods near you are home-based business signs with commercial messages. Maximum four-square feet of sign showing that a Realtor, masseuse/massage parlor, hair salon, canine/feline/exotic animal breeder, CBD (cannabidiol) sales, small ...

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus

To the editor: The result of the Virginia Governor’s election finally gave a voice to the “silent majority.” Conservatives have quietly dealt with the unbelievable dictates of the Biden administration. The power the Democrats wielded on this nation for the past 10 months has been ...

If at first you don’t secede…

To the editor: Rarely do I respond to a letter to the editor. I, as a conservative, and supporter of first amendment rights, feel that all U.S. citizens have the right to speak freely about any subject, as long as it is not libelous or threatening harm to others. The letter to the editor ...
