Letter: Kudos To Wellington On Saddle Trail

By at April 17, 2015 | 12:01 am | 0 Comment

Thank goodness that we live in a village that is responsive and attentive to its residents. After a few inquiries about paving some of the roads in Saddle Trail, the Village of Wellington had meetings and sent out ballots of which 63 percent of lot owners voted for (latest poll results). Of course then, out comes the “I’m telling you, there couldn’t be anything more...

Letter: Cheating Is Sometimes OK?

By at April 17, 2015 | 12:01 am | 0 Comment

Is cheating sometimes OK? It’s a lovely question. Loxahatchee Groves councilmen Jim Rockett and Ryan Liang have no problem answering it. They need not speak; their actions boom where they stand. But they’re elected councilmen. Seemingly untouchable. Thus far, they’ve gotten to do what they want without the annoying constraint of the law. In this newspaper last more...

Letter: Equal Rights For Everyone

By at April 10, 2015 | 12:01 am | 1 Comments

All Americans receive the same rights, and denying any citizen for whatever reason, political or religious, is unconstitutional, wrong and un-American. Fellow Americans should not view the (fake) “Religious Freedom” laws like Indiana’s as an anti-gay law, but as a tactic to divide citizens on issues. But when you remove the conflicts, fluff and rhetoric from this more...

Letter: ‘Do As I Say, Not As I Do’

By at April 3, 2015 | 12:01 am | 0 Comment

It is impossible for one to be out and about in Royal Palm Beach on a Saturday without seeing the code enforcement officers out zealously pulling garage sale and other signs out of the roadside lawns and medians. The pickup stops, the driver gets out with a look of disgust, annoyed at the clutter thrown on our roadside and yanks the sign out of the ground. I will more...

First, I’d like to bring attention to the two students who spoke at the Education Advisory Board meeting. These were bright and articulate young people who spoke of their more...

Letter: Thoughts On Pilot Fitness

By at April 3, 2015 | 12:01 am | 0 Comment

I find it interesting but disappointing that while the “black box” helped us to understand that the co-pilot of the ill-fated German airliner apparently deliberately crashed the airliner, killing all of the passengers onboard, it makes one wonder how, after a doctor, presumably hired by the airline, found this co-pilot “unfit to fly,” the airline wasn’t notified more...
