   For nearly 70 years, the United States has recognized May as Mental Health Awareness Month. Although much has been done since then to destigmatize mental illness, expand access to treatment, and encourage patients to seek care, there is more work to be done.

Letter to the Editor - Former Mayor Sincore weighs in on stadium

I want to compliment and congratulate the City Manager, the Mayor and Council members of Homestead for their decision to send out for bid consideration of removing the falling apart baseball stadium. As I understand, it would cost over $1,500,000 just to repair the roof, and an unknown amount in repairing and fixing up the old building plus about $500,000 just to maintain it every year.

Cutler Bay Voters Encouraged to Say “Yes” to General Obligation Bond

  It's time for Cutler Bay residents to make one of the most important decisions regarding the future of the Town following the historic 2005 vote for incorporation, transforming the 9.7-square-mile community into one of the youngest incorporated municipalities in the state. A special all mail ballot election is underway to decide if the Town should be authorized to issue general obligation bonds in the amount of $40 million, secured by ad valorem taxes to be levied on each property owner within the Town.

Letter to the Editor - Hurricane NAFTA in South Dade

Re: The front page story April 13 "HURRICANE NAFTA" by writer Philip Marraccini, paints a bleak landscape for our tomato growers, but not the entire farming picture of South Dade Agriculture. Not all South Dade Agriculture has been destroyed by NAFTA. Yes, the row crop tomato growers have definitely been impacted by the ugly NAFTA trade agreement, and losses of personal property and machinery were due to Irma. We do have a billion dollar industry --second largest in the county and in the state with varied agricultural crops including tropical fruits of all kinds,---organic grown veggies, horticultural ornamentals, landscape foilage, bee apiaries, aquaculture, fish farming, etc and back yard hobby farmers.

Letter to the Editor - What do you consider to be the safest building in this country?

What do you consider to be the safest building in this country? When I asked myself this question, I came up with places that law makers and enforcers frequent most. Places like The White House, The US Capitol Building, state capitols, local courthouses and police stations are some of the safest places in country. Law makers and enforcers have been victims of murder or attempted murder with some type of gun, but those murders and attempted murders happened away from the confines of the buildings that I've just mentioned.

Thank you, Dewey Steele, for such a mellow, calm letter asking for a little more diversity on the Opinion page.  And it was also mercifully brief!
