Letter: The Practicing President

By at August 29, 2014 | 12:01 am | 1 Comments

On Aug. 24, terrorists released American prisoner Peter Theo Curtis. By Aug. 25, the world was aware of his release. Almost immediately, the administration stated that a ransom was not paid and they were not aware of the reason for the release. My issue is the administration did nothing to make this happen. Obviously, the terrorists did not wake up on Aug. 24 and more...

Letter: Where Have The Healers Gone?

Big Pharma has researched, developed and provided the least amount of antibiotics since the early 1900s. Pretty soon, there will be no effective antibiotics available to the public because Bg Pharma decided that it was less profitable for them to develop them. They blatantly tell the public it’s simply a bottom line issue. They spend billions running ads in every media more...

Letter: A Shadow On Our Sunshine Laws

At a July meeting, the Royal Palm Beach Village Council voted 4-1 to submit a resolution to the Palm Beach County Commission opposing any increase in the Minto West project beyond the originally approved plan for 2,966 homes and 235,000 square feet for commercial use. The sole opponent to this resolution was Vice Mayor David Swift, who said, “Saying no to Minto more...

Letter: Why Is Gas So Expensive In Wellington?

By at August 29, 2014 | 12:01 am | 1 Comments

Why is gas so expensive in Wellington? I purchased regular gas today in suburban Lake Worth, with the cost for regular (credit and cash at the same price) at $3.27 per gallon. I left Wellington this morning, and the regular gas was $3.69 to $3.79 per gallon (cash price/station card price only, with an extra charge for credit purchases). I have been watching the cost more...

Letter: Thoughts On The District 6 Race

By at August 29, 2014 | 12:01 am | 1 Comments

Congratulations to all the winners and my commiseration to all the losers in the recent primary election. The District 6 county commission race was very different from previous primaries. Never have I received so many mailings, not to mention robo calls. It was intense, to say the very least. The false mailing about Kathy Foster was disgusting and has no place in more...

Letter: What’s In Your Wallet?

It’s no secret. Politicians are bought every day and no one even tries to deny that anymore, not even other politicians. Many people surrounding the Minto debate are mumbling unkindly about the break-away Wellington council members. They had many meetings, heard from numerous local witnesses and collected tons of data. After very long discussions, they suddenly more...

Letter: Outside Groups Are At It Again

Last February, during the Wellington election, I tried to alert the voters that something was going on because the Florida Democratic Party was funneling money to our local “non-partisan” election. I turned out be right, and we learned that once again Jeremy Jacobs’ money was being routed through the state Democrats. Our upcoming District 6 county commission more...

Letter: Foster Will Favor Developers

Recently, the Palm Beach Post found it prudent to issue an endorsement of Kathy Foster as their choice in the upcoming Aug. 26 Democratic primary election for Palm Beach County Commission in District 6. In its endorsement, the Post claimed that, “The most important issue facing Palm Beach County’s western communities is how to best channel developers’ appetite for more...

Letter: Political Straight Talk

By at August 22, 2014 | 12:01 am | 0 Comment

The District 6 commission race has taken on all the elements of bad politics. There is no doubt that the voters of this area have been the victims of some very unsavory conduct that led to the inspector general here in Palm Beach County. The first line of defense, however, is with the voter, where the responsibility lies in smart choices. The inspector general is the more...

Letter: Nan Rich? No Way

By at August 22, 2014 | 12:01 am | 0 Comment

I got a post card in the mail the other day that said all sorts of bad things about Nan Rich, who is running against Charlie Crist and Rick Scott for governor of Florida. At first I thought it was just the typical negative political advertising that is all too common these days. However, upon closer examination, it was sent by Rich’s own campaign. On the post card, more...
