Letter: Is Lox Groves A Sinking Ship?

By at August 21, 2015 | 12:01 am | 1 Comments

Tuesday night’s Loxahatchee Groves Town Council meeting was reminiscent of an episode of “The Twilight Zone.” The most important item was an award to highly respected, if a little deformed, Loxahatchee Groves’ own Quasi Modo; apparently the “World’s Ugliest Dog.” Go Quasi. In a side issue, the trivial matter of deciding the town’s future, the usual more...

Letter: Kudos For All Paws Team

I am writing to express my appreciation to the staff at All Paws Animal Clinic and the Veterinary Care Foundation. My recently acquired boxer puppy was happy, healthy and smart when I got him and seemed perfect. It was love at first sight for my family and I. Then my puppy started having strange seizures about two months after I got him. After numerous veterinary more...

Letter: Groves Phantom Touts The RFP

By at August 14, 2015 | 12:01 am | 0 Comment

Councilman Jim Rockett opened the current town management debate by stating, “Unless the council has no doubts about extending the current management contract, I think we have a year option on it, we should avail ourselves of all the information and options to make the best decision possible.” That rationale suggests to the residents that the council is doing more...

Letter: Management Change Not Necessary

In a 3-2 vote, the Loxahatchee Groves Town Council decided to not extend the contract for the Underwood Management Services team. When repeatedly queried to at least have the courage of their convictions and explain the reasoning behind their decision, councilmen Ron Jarriel, Ryan Liang and Jim Rockett made absolutely no comment. Requests by several citizens, including more...

Letter: Reflections On The Debate

By at August 14, 2015 | 12:01 am | 0 Comment

The first Republican presidential debate is now over, and much has been said about the brashness of Donald Trump and the banter between Chris Christie and Rand Paul, but there was more for the viewers to take away, and that was the evident anguish of a second tier candidate, Lindsey Graham. If you tuned in to the non-prime-time event, you would have felt his message. more...

Letter: Facts About Our National Debt

By at August 14, 2015 | 12:01 am | 4 Comments

The prevailing argument by conservatives that it is the policies of the current administration that are responsible for an unsustainable debt is not only ludicrous, but not factual. Blame for the debt cannot be laid at the door of liberals, and all that is really being argued is how money is spent. The unsettling fact is that this administration is more fiscally more...

Government of the people, by the people and for all the people of Palm Beach County is public consensus in policies of our national award-winning comprehensive land use plan. To establish the will of the people in due process, the public was required to be consistent in every word of every policy for the long-term funding of services, and protection of our natural and more...

Letter: Dump Trump? Not So Fast!

By at August 7, 2015 | 12:01 am | 3 Comments

The unexpected rise of Donald Trump in the GOP polls has come as a great surprise to many, myself included. Donald Trump lives and breathes publicity and will say and do just about anything that will keep him in the spotlight, locally and nationally. (Just like the billionaire Richard Branson in England.) Most GOP candidates are distancing themselves from him more...

Letter: Pick Lawrence Gordon For District 7

Regarding the District 7 race to replace Palm Beach County Commissioner Priscilla Taylor, so far, five Democrats have entered the race. It appears that crowded fields for elections at the local, state and national level has become the new trend, coupled with aggressive, record-breaking fundraising. District 7 is a Democratic stronghold with a very large minority more...

Letter: The Fight Will Go On

By at July 31, 2015 | 12:01 am | 0 Comment

During the June meeting of the Loxahatchee Groves Town Council, embattled Councilman Ryan Liang directed the residents of the Groves “to grow up and stop being childish.” Since the March 10 election, all that I have asked for is that the people’s will be followed. Throughout this matter, it appears that the council is determined to make that as difficult as more...
