Letter: Crack Down On Political Signs

By at September 19, 2014 | 12:01 am | 0 Comment

The Village of Wellington’s administrators and political leaders should reconsider the hideous display of political signs in Wellington for aesthetic, financial and safety reasons. Our political leaders at the local, state and federal level “protected” us from the nuisance of extensive marketing sales calls and created a “do not call” list to eliminate these more...

Letter: Bad News For Wellington?

By at September 19, 2014 | 12:01 am | 1 Comments

Is it bye-bye Paul Schofield? Rumor has it that the three mouse cartoons, are at it again. They feel they have the votes to fire our village manager, but do they have a reason? The last time they tried, they did not articulate one. One would think that the three council members would have better things to do. Maybe spend some time getting their taxes in order; maybe more...

Letter: Our Security In Muslim Hands?

By at September 19, 2014 | 12:01 am | 1 Comments

What’s wrong with this title? Everything. These people want us dead or converted to Islam. President Obama will not put Americans in Iraq or Syria, saying it is their fight, not ours. Yes, it is their fight, but it is also ours. I don’t want to depend on Muslims to keep the United States safe, do you? I want American men and women fighting for our freedom and our more...

Letter: Don’t Throw Good Planning Out The Window

By at September 19, 2014 | 12:01 am | 3 Comments

Public trust, public effort, public consensus and public policy: Public servants in a democracy are trusted to submit to the will of the people and serve the public when elected. The general public endured years of due process to get public consensus into policy on county growth during the revision of the 1989 Comprehensive Land Use Plan. The resulting national more...

Letter: Thoughts On The District 6 County Race

By at September 19, 2014 | 12:01 am | 0 Comment

Melissa McKinlay did not so much win the District 6 primary election, not so much as Kathy Foster lost it. Foster handed it to McKinlay on a plate, by refusing to apologize to her about comments she made during an interview referring to McKinlay as a “nice girl” and “just a secretary.” Those insensitive and politically incorrect remarks alienated a lot of more...

Letter: Crossing Over To The Foul Side

By at September 19, 2014 | 12:01 am | 0 Comment

At the Indian Trail Improvement District meeting on Sept. 10 during the presentation of item number 7.2 (the 60th Street permit), I heard Supervisor [Michelle] Damone and President [Carol] Jacobs say the Minto West project’s access to 60th street is a reality. Their statements were like an expression of faith to the certainty of God’s existence. Supervisor Damone more...

Letter: Minto West Doesn’t Fit In The Area

By at September 12, 2014 | 12:01 am | 7 Comments

How can the Palm Beach County Commission approve the expansion request by Minto West when everything in the plan is not compatible with the surrounding area? The “new” plan by most builders is to have a complete city in their development. However, these plans do not work, and they do not generate 3,000 jobs as Minto says they will. Just ask Abacoa how many jobs more...

Letter: Who Is Shelley Vana Kidding?

By at September 12, 2014 | 12:01 am | 4 Comments

How hypocritical of Commissioner Shelley Vana to attack Commissioner Jess Santamaria for speaking the truth at a recent meeting of the Palm Beach County Commission. Commissioner Vana asserts that, contrary to Commissioner Santamaria’s claim, the commissioners do their best to represent the wishes of the constituents. Let’s look at the facts: How do the residents more...

Letter: The 12 Percent

By at September 12, 2014 | 12:01 am | 0 Comment

How did it come to pass that so many residents in Palm Beach County have allowed their right to vote to wither on the vine; their freedom to elect our representatives to die? Many of the non-voters have become the “summer soldiers and sunshine patriots” that Thomas Paine wrote about in The Crisis. We are Americans, and our forefathers sacrificed their fortunes and more...

Letter: Sunsport Opposes Minto West

By at September 12, 2014 | 12:01 am | 0 Comment

I am writing as president of the Board of Directors of Sunsport Gardens Family Naturist Resort in Loxahatchee Groves. Sunsport’s board has voted unanimously to oppose Minto West’s new proposal to develop the former Callery-Judge Grove property. The Minto West property is only two lots north of Sunsport and would have a negative impact upon the Town of Loxahatchee more...
