Letters to the Editor

Guest Comment: Inclusion: The bullying preventative

In March 2020, the world and education as we knew it, was turned upside down! A mandate from the Governor should still be our guide, and that is to act with “Grace and Compassion.” Grace means kindness, and compassion means sympathy or, at best, empathy and understanding. Difficult ...

Special district law does away with public oversight

To the editor: Florida State Sen. Baxley, who originated the bill, and the whole Florida legislative body along with the governor have set Florida back into the dark and secret ages of the past by passing a bill gutting 189.069 f.s. requiring special districts to post certain documents ...

Clear and present danger

To the editor: We are at war for the soul of our country. The Democratic Party has chosen this election cycle to attempt a socialist takeover of the U.S.A. that has been in the making for decades. The only thing that slowed them and their Communist allies was Hilary Clinton’s loss in 2016 ...

Pilot update

To the editor: We are back in action! We had our first week of virtual PILOT and we couldn't have asked for a better start! Nichole has been working a lot with the PILOT Seniors to prepare them for college. The 4 seniors have contributed 714 hours of community service in the past 3 years. ...

Little League thanks Sons of the Legion for donation

To the editor: On behalf of Greater Pine Island Little League I would like to extend our most sincere thanks to the Sons of the Legion for their generous donation to cover the cost of us outfitting all of our players with their own bat, helmet and glove. This is just one of the many measures ...

Incorporate now to protect our island

To the editor: A recent letter to the editor entitled “Opposed to Doppler Tower” was well written and highlights the controversy over environmental and health risks of transmitting 1mm watts. However, there is another familiar issue involved; incorporation. What, not enough radar out ...

The new normal is abnormal

To the editor: Gov. DeSantis has now opened the state of Florida, despite acknowledging the COVID pandemic is far from over. This so pleased president Trump, who professes he loves “normal” and wants to see Florida return to “normal.” Politico stated on 9/25/2020: “The ...

Vote no on Amendment 3

To the editor: On the general election ballot will be Amendment 3 to end party primary candidate selection. Tacitly opposed by both the RNC and the Democratic Party, the initiative seeks to do away with pesky policy considerations in voting selection by minimizing party affiliation in the ...
