Letters to the Editor

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 some ...

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 ...

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 ...

The voters have spoken

To the editor: Nearly 160 million voted for president in 2020. A higher percentage of registered voters cast a ballot than in any election in U. S. history. This should have led to jubilation about the state of democracy, but the post-election period can only be characterized as ad absurdum. ...

To the editor: Operation Warp Speed: Another spectacular accomplishment by President Trump. The development and distribution of the “covid”' destroyer, scheduled for delivery before the end of the year, ranks high on the list of President Trump’s amazing achievements. What before ...

Deep reflection is required

To the editor: This election season has managed to bring into play some of the worst of our political actions. Having “your” side win is nice. However, what price did our election process pay to obtain the victory? We consider ourselves to be a politically safe model for the world. We are ...

Guest Commentary: New threat to water quality in Southwest Florida

We want to thank everyone who responded to our call-to-action to oppose federal permits for the Ocean Era Inc. aquaculture project proposed in the Gulf of Mexico. As a result of our recent campaign, more than 500 emails were submitted to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers opposing the ...

The color of hypocrisy is true blue

To the editor: In response to the recent letter written by Paul Kiefner, “You can...” The conclusion “You can’t beat Blue” is wrong where the writer does not follow his own research or see the problem before his nose. The letter blames a lot of stuff on the Proud Boys or ...
