Since the beginning of 2022, five firearms have been stolen from vehicles within the city of Shrewsbury.  In 2021, seven were stolen from vehicles. Some of those vehicles had been left unlocked; some had been locked and had windows broken to gain entry. 

I have never been one to subscribe to the retort: “Love it or leave it!” Often, if I’ve suggested a change or a different way to live or govern in our country, our state or our city (Webster Groves for me), people have shot that back at me. I’ll never apologize for working to make where I li…

How can the city of Webster Groves afford to spend $132,140 on two 2023 Mustang Mach-Es? I would think that amount of money could be spent in a different way. The police officers do not need Mustangs to do their jobs. A much more efficient vehicle would be a four-door vehicle for when office…

I would like to offer my most sincere thanks to the medical staff and trainer of the Kirkwood High School varsity football team. My family attended the game on Friday, Sept. 16, and my 8-year-old son ended up in a collision with his younger brother, with a pretty serious gash over his eye. 

For those with kids in the Webster Groves School District, you know the cringe that comes via email every couple of weeks. These past few days we have another race and gender pile-on, in the form of a survey called “Culture Climate.” The district is working with a political data-mining compa…

I agree with Mr. Cooper’s letter  (Mailbag, Sept. 2) that we have become an intolerant society. And, I too, was disappointed when someone trespassed on our property and removed both of our signs. One read,  “Without God Life Has No Meaning.” The other read, “You Matter.” I found them missing…

To our beloved community, thank you so much for springing into action when our dear mom and grandma walked off a few weeks ago, prompting a silver alert and a search party with 100-plus people who were out looking for her.

I am writing in regard to the article in the Sept. 2 issue about Kevin Johnson’s execution being set for November. While I doubt this letter will make any difference in whether the state of Missouri chooses to kill people, I wanted to take the opportunity to express my opposition to the deat…

A recent letter in the Webster-Kirkwood Times (Mailbag, Sept 9) made claims that peer review is denied to persons because of political reasons. It would appear that the author doesn’t understand the purpose or method of peer review. 

In my opinion, the bike lane (in Webster) hasn’t been well thought out! Webster has a driving lane, buffer lane and a bike lane. Glendale has a driving lane, bike lane and a parking lane. Did both cities actually get counsel from Trailnet? Which is correct? 

I applaud Michael Fansler (Mailbag, Aug. 26) for alerting readers to the World Climate Declaration (WCD) concerning climate change impact and its remedies. The following week’s Mailbag full of negative responses was predictable given the highly political nature of the issue. 

My name is Andrew Troy and I’m writing as to why I think schools shouldn’t give students homework. The first reason is because some students don’t have enough time to do it when they get home. They may have to go to work or practice right away. 

Thank you for publishing the letters on global warming. According to the last scientific report, over the past 40 years the Arctic is warming at a rate of four times the rate of the temperature in the rest of the world. It has also been reported that most countries, especially the wealthiest…

I was rather irritated when I read the area crime reports in the Sept. 2-8, 2022, edition of the Webster-Kirkwood Times. There were three crimes listed that never should have happened. All three were the fault of the victim and could have been prevented if some simple common sense had been used.
