I think it might be time to look at this squirrel issue from a different angle. The little buggers are destructive! They chew on our deck, the swing set for our grandchildren, the aluminum wires that attach our chain link fence to the horizontal top pipe, the flexible line from our gas sourc…

Fenton may be known at “the City of Parks,” but currently it is not a city that likes to spend extra money on preserving its history. One of the few remaining historical buildings on Church Street in Old Towne, the Swantner House, is privately funded by dedicated citizens. The Fabick’s House…

The legislation that passed last year to mandate a later start date for our schools is a short-sighted attempt to boost tourism at the expense of working families and their children’s education. 

We need to start yet another petition drive. With the Missouri state legislature’s contempt and disdain for a state government of, for, and by the people, and working to weaken citizen petition drives such as Clean Missouri and a living minimum wage, a petition needs to be circulated so that…

Lindbergh’s literacy crisis is not just happening to a select few students from disadvantaged families. The ineffective curriculum is having devastating results for over 40% of all kids in the district. Mine included. It’s impossible to pick out the struggling reader from the dyslexic.

Recently, as a resident and taxpayer of the Lindbergh School District I received a copy of the Fall 2019 edition of “Lindbergh Link.” An article titled, “LHS Field Improvements ....this Fall” states $1.56 million will be spent for new synthetic turf of the football and soccer fields through …

The residents of Sunset Hills breathed a collective sigh of relief when the board and mayor responded to resident pressure and reversed part of the flawed zoning proposal to reduce lot sizes in Sunset Hills — a community whose primary assets are large lots and estate style homes. What irony!…

No matter if we are Pro-Trumpers or Never–Trumpers, we should respect those who devote their lives to the security of our nation. It disturbs me deeply when military heroes like John McCain and dedicated members of the Foreign Service are vilified for political gain.

I would like to thank those readers who have written letters either in favor of what President Trump has achieved or have disputed what some people are saying. It takes a lot of courage to voice your opinion when so many people are not able to find anything good in what he has accomplished.

Mr. Walsh (“Trump Backers Can’t Complain About Dems,” South County Times Nov. 15, 2019 issue) is not the first person I have seen express outrage at Mitch McConnell’s saying that his goal was to ensure that Barack Obama be a one-term president. Isn’t that the way our system works? When a new…

There have been a lot of violent tragedies around the nation these past few years. Many different people blame many different things. One such thing being blamed are video games. I am what one might call a gamer, and so I know a lot about these video games. I am writing to dispel the blame t…

I have to offer a rebuttal of the letter criticizing Trump’s comments on the ISIS raid. My guess is that the reader has been “offended” since the day Trump was elected, and nothing he accomplishes will appease her. Just what do you want from this man? He’s hardly perfect. He’ll never be a po…

In a letter in the Nov. 1 issue titled “President’s ‘Complete Disrespect’ For Congress,” the writer is upset that our president didn’t advise Congress about the pending secret raid to take out the ISIS leader, but did advise Putin of Russia and Erdogan of Turkey.
