Letters To The Editor

Another ‘rigged election,’ another insurrection

To the editor: Last week Mar-a-Lago didn’t offer to just host another fascist, but offered former Brazilian “strongman” Jair Bolsonaro an alibi. Bolsonaro, Steve Bannon’s other pal previously in high office, is also known as the Trump of the Tropics. As his treasonous mob set out ...

Ghosts of Christmas yet to come

To the editor: As 2023 begins, election results haunt me. The majority of voters voted for inflation, massive invasion of illegals including many criminals and even terrorists, crime rampant in our cities, $5 trillion of additional debt already spent and more committed, regulations against the ...

Combating ignorance

To the editor: Fortunately we live in a world of advanced technology that affords all readers the opportunity to dispel allegations of misinformation. In reading the many letters to the editor we see many wannabes that make claim of being true Americans in rhetoric, but not in action. My ...

Biden detractors are in the minority

To the editor: Last week instead of simply tossing your paper in the recycle bin I made the unfortunate decision to once again read your publication. What I read in the letters to the editor page however thoroughly disgusts me. Apparently Mr. Dick Kalfus is having a cow over the democratic ...

To the editor: The Supreme Court Chief Justice’s annual report laughably strained a comparison to Brown v. Board for last year’s Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health. (overturning the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that recognized a constitutional right to obtain an abortion from a doctor). The ...

Guest Commentary: Court of Appeal sides with the Conservancy

When the Collier County Board of County Commissioners approved Rivergrass Village in 2020, the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, along with many others, argued that Rivergrass Village would cost taxpayers millions of dollars, adversely impact our community and wildlife, and would greatly ...

Say hello before the privacy fence goes back up

To the editor: Has the hurricane done any good as it ravaged Southwest Florida? Surprisingly yes. And it all comes from that old song, Don’t Fence Me In. Fences were one of the most damaged items by the hurricane and many are more accurately called privacy fences. The name describes its ...

Shame on FEMA for its denial of DeSantis’ emergency relief request

To the editor: President Biden’s Federal Emergency Management Agency denied a request from Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in early December for expanded assistance in the wake of damaging hurricanes — including — Ian for emergency protective measures for a sheltering in home recovery ...
