Letters to the Editor

DeSantis following a failed formula

To the editor: With Donald Trump being the only exception, I don’t think there’s anyone who really believes that his MAGA base is growing. More and more people are distancing themselves from him as he continues to spout his delusional conspiracy theories and the idea that somehow he will ...

Lake O toxic water releases: Speak out!

To the editor: In a recent edition of The Breeze, Ellen Starbird was good enough to sound the alarm with regard to toxic water releases from Lake Okeechobee. This is of great concern to those of us who care about our environment, our health, our property values and our ability to earn ...

Advocate — and vote — for clean water

To the editor: It was good to see the Chamber of Commerce weigh in on the side of clean water for St. Lucie River and estuary in last week’s Breeze. Lee County Commissioner Kevin Ruane and Donna Germain of the chamber both suggested further email support for clean water be directed to ...

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 ...

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 ...

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. ...
