Letters to the Editor

Think, don’t follow, indeed

To the editor: In response to a previous letter to the editor, “Think, don’t follow,” I offer an opposing view. First and foremost, fascism and Nazism are Left-wing phenomena and have always been so. If one only listens to propaganda TV channels such as CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, NPR, ...

Guest Commentary: Together we can achieve remarkable things

Welcome to 2021! This is a very important year -- we will end COVID, end World Hunger, and “Ensure that All children reach their highest personal potential!” Now that I have your attention, I will explain. We pray and believe that the first two will come true, however we know that working ...

Time to speak up

To the editor: This week’s newspaper edition has a photo of a gang of politicians celebrating the installation of a new sign in Lehigh. The names of the politicians are Caldwell, DiLallo, Heck, Mallard, Kelly, Hoover and Lindsay as well as an un-named person dressed up as the Lehigh Acres ...

God and country

To the editor: I am very confused about how the education systems and political parties have been able to get God out of schools, prayers and so on! The Democrats have been responsible for these changes. Democracy is the greatest concept for a country; socialism and communism have not ...

Please wear a mask, even with the vaccine

To the editor: You need to keep wearing your mask and washing your hands with ridiculous frequency. The virus is not done infecting Southwest Florida, and you are still at risk. The current emergency-approved vaccine does not prevent further transmission of the disease. The 85-year-olds and ...

Speak up on Russian aggression information

To the editor: Recently, Russia cyber-attacked our government with intrusions reported across a huge swath of the government—including at the Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration. The Department of Homeland Security’s cybersecurity unit has acknowledged that ...
