As a regular rider of the #59 and #56 bus, I too am saddened by Metro’s decision to change its service plan and stop the part of the route where I board. I concede that Metro’s decision makes logistical sense, though. As one of the few riders who gets on along Lockwood, I understand that Met…

The polarity that Mayor Welch continues to inflict upon the university/high school area of Webster Groves has to stop. How many “protected” blocks and “restricted area” parking signs have sprung up during her time in office? Now she wants to drive students off of Bompart, a public street, so…

I’m writing this in regard to the article “5G Technology Revolution Has Many Concerned” by Don Corrigan (WKT, Sept. 6). I agree with the many concerns listed by the STL for Safe Technology group, and I’m glad more research will be done. How many more Gs until we are satisfied? And if 5G is 1…

A disturbing letter sent in by Stephanie Stuppy in the Aug. 30 issue requires comment. Ms. Stuppy points out the fact that people don’t feel safe at school crosswalks. Great! But to refer to people and others as “non-binary and binary meatsacks” is dehumanizing and creepy.

This letter is in response to St. Louis County reassessments. I completely agree that a new system of assessments is needed. The every-other-year real estate appeal process is becoming a normal part of life which is no fun for either the county or home and business owners.

I want to thank all of the wonderful employees at Kirkwood Parks for their dedication and hard work so we can enjoy our parks. I have had the pleasure of volunteering with them for the past three years. I never really realized how much work it takes to maintain a park, let alone 14 of them.
