Letters To The Editor

Stink, stank, stunk

To the editor: Once again the Lake Okeechobee water releases coincide with the appearance of Red Tide, dead fish on the beach, and general threat to the community's health. Minimization of the damage to the environment by “water experts” and state officials should stop. This is a ...

Time to concede the loss

To the editor: Re: Mr. Kalfas’ latest letter to the editor: He still keeps trying to defend the President he believes in? Oh boy! Stating that he’s the “greatest president” who has “earned respect?” I guess to simpler minds, who like “his” president, refuses to see the ...

Blame the capitalists

To the editor: The letter last week by Jack Wagner is a fine example of the notion that sufficiently strong and sincere belief somehow can automatically turn any idea whatever into concrete truth! The writer spoke of “Democratic Cities;” sounds to me like a Socialistic proposal of ...

Guest commentary: Education prepares children for a lifetime of success

Every child deserves a chance. Research has long proven that a high-quality early childhood education program can make lifechanging differences for children. During the first five years of a child’s life, his or her brain develops by 90%. This period before they enter kindergarten is crucial ...

History illustrates socialism’s harms

To the editor: The reason that “liberalism” (“socialism”) is so dangerous to America is that they never learn from their failures (welfarism) or from the success of “capitalism.” The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings, the inherent virtue of ...

The end of patriotism, fall of a nation

To the editor: Ending the Military Draft was the largest contributor to ending what this nation knew as true patriotism. From World War II we found this new era of patriots and heroes whose sacrifices contributed not only to the continued protection of our nation’s freedoms, but also to ...

How do you decide what is right or wrong?

To the editor: The political differences here in Florida are, in my view, not just tensions between how the budget should be spent or how much to tax, they are fundamental. They expose how people approach right and wrong, morality, and justice itself. Some think if the issue benefits ...

Count your blessings

To the editor: All across this great country, this holiday season Americans have celebrated the dearly won gift of freedom with the family and friends we are blessed to share it with. This tradition of gratitude is woven into the very fabric of our nation. As many families grapple with ...
