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…

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.

Thank you Dana Saylor, for sharing the article called “Carbon Dioxide Fertilization Greening Earth” (Sept. 20 Mailbag). The one interesting part, near the end of the article says, “While rising carbon dioxide concentrations in the air can be beneficial for plants, it is also the chief culpri…

The internet, twitter, television, newspapers, magazines, et al. are replete with news stories concerning the coming impeachment of President Donald J. Trump. As Trump and his Republican lackies squirm and spew a plethora of concocted Democrat conspiracy and coup theories, credible informati…

As our nation struggles with a crisis of opioid addiction and abuse, that is squarely the fault of a greedy and unscrupulous pharmaceutical industry, I was stunned to read about the meeting that took place at Lindbergh High on Sept. 19 (Sept. 27 South County Times).
