Opinion

Stink, stank, stunk

To the editor: Once again the Lake Okeechobee water releases coincide with the appearance of Red Tide, dead fish on the beach, and general threat to the community's health. Minimization of the damage to the environment by “water experts” and state officials should stop. This is a ...

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 ...

Blame the capitalists

To the editor: A recent letter 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 sort. The fact of ...

Yes, it’s over

To the editor: In reply to Dick Kalfus’ hopeful thought “It ain’t over till it’s over” published last month: The writer tries reminding us of the things the president has done. Yes, some good things have been done, but isn’t that the reason he’s in that position? MLK talked ...

Count your blessings

To the editor: All across this great country, this holiday season Americans have celebrated the dearly won gift of freedom with the family and friends we are blessed to share it with. This tradition of gratitude is woven into the very fabric of our nation. As many families grapple with the ...

How do you decide what is right or wrong?

To the editor: The political differences here in Florida are, in my view, not just tensions between how the budget should be spent or how much to tax, they are fundamental. They expose how people approach right and wrong, morality, and justice itself. Some think if the issue benefits ...
