Disappointment in publication of column

Dear Editor, First, I would like to say that I really like your column (Faith, Family and Fun). Not too long ago, you were standing up to the entertainment industry about them pushing the envelope when it comes to coarse language being used in films geared towards kids. That is why I am so surprised […]

Sheriff’s office acted inappropriately at time of death

Dear Editor, The reason I am writing is because of the total lack of compassion that the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office exhibited recently, when we lost my father-in-law. He was a World War II prisoner of war who was wounded and spent six months in a Nazi prison in Germany. He was 95 years […]

Letter about Trump off the mark

Dear Editor, The letter from Will Heierman dismissing the investigation into the Trump administration still has me scratching my head. He suggests that it’s much ado about nothing and those making the allegations are “disenfranchised gremlins.” James Comey is no disenfranchised gremlin, nor partisan flamethrower. John Boehner, who said this week that the Trump presidency […]

Letters to the Editor 05/24/17

Support the presidency Dear Editor, The fallout from the recent termination of the Director of the FBI by the President is symptomatic of something very wrong going on in America. At a time when we should be united in defense of our borders and our way of life, more attention is being spent on sowing […]

Oak Ridge Boys are talented and friendly

Dear Editor, I really enjoyed your “opinion” column about the Oak Ridge Boys. I am also a big fan of theirs. I grew up in a small town – population 10,000-12,000 called Independence, Kansas. Every year Independence has a 3-4 day event called Neewallah (Halloween spelled backwards). It is a big deal with a parade, […]

Senator Huffman’s ‘yes’ vote saves voucher bill

Dear Editor, Normally, we can look at a legislator’s vote on a bill and easily determine if they were for or against it. Simply put, constituents think a “yes” vote means the legislator supported the legislation and a “no” vote means they opposed it. But, at times our complicated political process is not that transparent. […]

Thank you for editorial about a real hero

Dear Editor, May I add my congratulations to you for a thoughtful and heartfelt editorial following the death and funeral Gene Cernan. With the focus today on so many celebrities who are famous for being celebrities with few if any accomplishments, so many real heroes are forgotten and overlooked. Thank you for reminding us and […]

I am not an ‘educrat,’ Lt. Gov. Patrick; I am a parent and a proud Texas conservative

An open letter to Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick: With all due respect and contrary to what you may believe, not all of us who represent Texas public schools (the children who attend the schools, not the buildings), are liberals or “educrats,” as you referred to us in your speech to the Texas Public Policy Foundation […]

Sugar Land’s new red-light cameras not properly justified

Dear Editor, The traffic engineering study used by the City of Sugar Land to justify two new red light cameras (westbound Hwy. 90 at Eldridge and westbound University at Elkins) was found to be deficient. This study dated Feb. 16, 2016, was performed by Kimley-Horn and Associates, Inc. for the city and reviewed by professional […]

Ticket fees, parking raise costs of shows at Smart Financial Centre

Dear Editor, I just had the displeasure of trying to purchase tickets for the new Smart Financial Centre. It appears that the only options for purchasing tickets are through Ticketmaster. Ticketmaster adds a $13.50 fee to each ticket purchased plus another $5 service charge. If you wish to purchase a parking ticket, there is another […]
