Letters To The Editor

Actions have consequences

To the editor: The First Amendment says that the government can not regulate what you say. That is why FOX gets away with its outright lies. It does NOT mean that your friends, enemies, neighbors, associates, clients, customers, employers, anybodies-at-all can not or will not, if they wish, ...

Guest opinion: Fix the flow

Approximately, two years ago after Gov. DeSantis took office and replaced former Board members of the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) that were closely aligned with the sugar industry, there was a great deal of hope and optimism that the new Board would provide the leadership ...

Mayor Joe was wildlife supporter, will be missed

To the editor: It is with sadness in our hearts that we share the news of the sudden passing of Cape Coral’s Mayor, Joe Coviello. He was an avid supporter of the Cape Coral Friends of Wildlife and of Cape Coral’s wildlife. Mayor Joe made it a priority to attend CCFW events. He brought ...

Resiliency Compact can’t wait

To the editor: The clock is ticking, literally. In cities around the world, such as New York, Berlin and Paris, giant clocks are reminding us the number of years we have left before climate change stops being a challenge and becomes a sentence, a death sentence. Over the years I’ve kept ...

Expand the minimal presidential qualifications

To the editor: The United States must now implement an expanded list of minimal Presidential Qualifications, for example, in addition to mere U.S. Citizenship: A candidate must be able to conclusively demonstrate himself as being mentally, morally, personally and politically stable, of ...

Is it time for a government-run internet site?

To the editor: With Amazon, Twitter and other sites shutting down Parler, perhaps it is time that we have a single internet site run by the government. Then our freedom of speech would be protected by the First Amendment! We cannot allow a few companies to censor our thoughts and ...

RIP Joe Clark

To the editor: With great sadness, I learned that high school principal Joe Clark passed away. Being in the same class as Joe at William Paterson, Class of ‘60, was an honor. Principal Joe Clark stopped the drug trade and crime at Eastside HS in Paterson, NJ and expelled many students, ...

Guest commentary: Grateful to have served

As my time serving Southwest Florida in Congress comes to a close, I would like to take a moment to reflect on what we have accomplished these last four years. One of my main reasons in running for Congress, and my most important focus, has been on developing a bipartisan commitment to ...

Black votes matter (when counted)

To the editor: Never before has a sitting President responded to demonstrations in the Capital by white national chauvinist groups (in German the acronym is Nazi) so that he could address them and snivel about having lost a national election. I can't possibly be the only American saddened by ...
