Letters to the Editor

Mask mandate challenge a big loss in the court of public opinion

To the editor: Let’s see if I got this straight: Gov. Ron DeSantis issued an executive order banning school boards from enacting mask mandates in their districts. He further warned that if they did, he would withhold the salaries of any board member or superintendent who defied his ...

Preserve freedoms, stop the spread of COVID

To the editor: The events in Afghanistan on Aug. 26 highlight the true costs of freedom. God bless all those servicemen and servicewomen who lost their lives so that so many can be free. And God bless and protect all those who continue to make sacrifices so that we have the right to make ...

Weak leadership putting the U.S. at risk

To the editor: The most egregious situation of the 20-year involvement with Afghanistan is happening now. Some very large number of people who supported the Allies in Afghanistan are now left high and dry to suffer and many to be killed, no doubt. That has already started. The U.S. is ...

School Board actions should be reviewed by the state

Debacle in Afghanistan

To the editor: To better understand President Joe Biden being completely responsible for the present debacle in Afghanistan, we have to review his decisions. There were classified assessments by American spy agencies over the summer painting a grim picture of the prospect of a Taliban ...

It is not extreme to tell the truth

To the editor: Ron DeSantis is gambling with the health and safety of Florida’s schoolchildren. And he is doing so in violation of the Florida Constitution, which says school boards shall operate, control, and supervise all free public schools. His executive order to withhold funding from ...

On the mask issue: Who is telling the truth?

To the editor: I am wondering who is telling the truth on wearing masks? We hear from our government to wear masks and we hear it in the news and we hear it from some medical experts and the CDC then we hear if you are vaccinated you don’t need one then you hear you need one. I think ...
