Op-Ed - Restoring faith in our government

When I travel across South Florida, I listen to people’s concerns: quality health care isn’t affordable; student debt is crushing our economy; polluters can operate unchecked even when individuals are taking steps to reduce their own carbon footprint. South Floridians have been feeling that Washington isn’t responsive to their needs. I heard it over and over: Washington is broken. Well, Washington is broken because special interests and their dark money can buy influence, while working families are shut out of the process, even though they’re playing by the rules.

Op-Ed - Put Florida first and end the shutdown

As Americans, we have some basic, reasonable expectations. Among them: our food should be safe to eat, our businesses should be able to operate, our workers should be paid for their labor, and our government should function effectively.

Just this past week the Senate Democrats proposed another “Assault Weapons Ban of 2019”, to differentiate it from the one they had from 1994-2004. This is one definition of insanity. According to the DOJ under gun hater Bill Clinton, there was little to no impact on crimes and gun deaths. Other studies since have come up with similar results.

Letter to the Editor - Christmas is not over for everyone

I am writing to thank those South Dade/Florida Keys residents who shared the true meaning of Christmas with children in need this holiday season. The generosity shown to the South Dade Florida Keys Area Team enabled us to collect 3,905 shoebox gifts for Operation Christmas Child, a project of international Christian relief organization Samaritan’s Purse.

l am writing you because I just wanted you to know how great an experience it was for me to read your paper. My wife and I moved to Homestead, on August 24th of this year, and I go to the Royal Palm Drug Store Café, most every day to have a breakfast, and read the paper. The paper I am referring to is the Miami Herald, which 95% of the paper is not worth reading, but at least something to read, when eating my breakfast. The paper didn't come Dec 10th, so I saw the News Leader paper on the counter at Royal Palm Drug, so I picked one up.

Letters to the Editor - For local officials, there is no off season

Sports coaches are fond of saying, “championships are won in the offseason.” It pays homage to the hard work and dedication that goes into preparing for the season ahead. It also means that for winning teams, there really is no offseason.
