Letters To The Editor

He who benefits should pay — and it isn’t the poor

To the editor: The tragedy in Surfside underscores the importance of reliable infrastructure. We need roads, bridges, electrical car plug ins, trains and, in Florida most specifically, protection from rising sea levels. But we also need what the Republicans have cut from Biden’s ...

We can do better

To the editor: Re: the letter to the editor, “Turning neighbor against neighbor.” Anyone who doesn’t believe they have a civic duty to turn in treasonous law-breaking anti-Americans (like Trump’s flying monkeys) who attacked our democracy to overthrow the lawful election even ...

What if Donald Trump went to the border?

To the editor: I wonder what the reaction from Washington, D.C. would be if Donald Trump was to go to the border with Mexico and welcomed the new arrivals? This would be a nice way for him to be introduced to our new immigrants and would also prove to be a most creative fashion for the MSM ...

My narrative

To the editor: In her May 27 Guest Commentary, Tiffany Esposito encourages the readership to “Keep calm and share your beach pictures” of the pristine beaches despite the contrary reports in the media and the photographs of dead fish. Richard Wallace, in his June 17 Letter To The ...

Turning neighbor against neighbor

To the editor: President Joe Biden’s administration announced its plans to create a way for Americans to report “radicalized” friends and family members to the government, in what they say is an effort to fight domestic terrorism. This is National Socialism plain and simple. This ...

The benefits of outdoor play

To the editor: Outdoor play is essential for children. The time children spend outside can have a profound effect on their brain for time spent inside. Nature has ways of capturing our attention—a cool breeze blowing across our face. This type of attention is called involuntary ...
