Letters to the Editor

Policy conflicts reek of hypocrisy

To the editor: The Biden administration seems to be obsessively concerned with getting the nation vaccinated, even suggesting going door to door to get their message across. One has to wonder why the same concern is not being directed to the hundreds of people killed in cities such as ...

Stop the blame game and face reality

To the editor: The recent letter you published on July 23, “Help Immigrants, not smugglers,” deserves a response. A response, not because I agree with it, but because it really makes no sense. It struck a nerve that needs a reply. The writer’s argument seems to put down the ...

Florida — Sunshine State or dark clouds?

To the editor: Our governor, Ronnie De, came out really early refusing to accept CDC guidelines and data gathered by our highly educated scientific community. In spite of the governor, we wore marks, got vaccinated, avoided crowds and tried to maintain the 6-foot distance. And we were ...

Guest Commentary: Paddling upstream

Today, we are at the intersection of state power and citizen determination. Our state legislators have restricted our ability to petition the government at the very moment we are watching our waters — the lifeblood of our community — be degraded and abused to the point of making us sick. ...

Governments which regulate assume responsibility

To the editor: Ordinarily, Condominium Associations function, among other ways, to ensure that adequate funds for reasonable and predictable repairs against normal wear and tear are always “saved up” and available. Then, in the aftermath of the Surfside Champlain Condo collapse, the ...

Get your COVID shot

To the editor: Only those who haven’t had a shot or two to prevent COVID-19 infection seem to be at risk with the Delta variant of COVID-19. The new variant of COVID-19, the Delta variant, is more communicable. The un-jabbed people of the nation were coming down with COVID at a rate of ...

Pre-school benefits children

To the editor: We will be approaching a new school year with new opportunities and possibly new obstacles. The importance of getting our children in a routine is vital to their mental health, in my opinion. Daycare and preschool are so important to our children. Not only for their ...

Guest Commentary: Help kids in foster care

Across Florida, thousands of children enter the state’s child welfare system each year. The hope is it’s just a temporary placement and children will eventually be reunited at home with their biological parents. Unfortunately, a permanent solution is often needed. In either case, these ...
