Student says bus service not fair to all – FBISD should help all kids get to school

Dear Fort Bend Star, I am writing because I am concerned about the new Fort Bend ISD Academy bus program for 2014-2015.  Many kids live within walking distance of an elementary school and will not be affected, but many other kids (like me) no longer have the ability to attend an academy because there is […]

Captain Van responds to last week’s Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, Three letters on red light cameras (RLCs) in last week’s issue deserve a response.  The flawed legislation which authorizes RLCs prohibits the evidence from being used for anything else but issuing notices of violation.   It is silly but true that using the photos to establish fault in an accident is prohibited. The law […]

Resident has better suggestion on red lights and public safety

Dear Sir/Madam, Considering the way the Sugar Land City Council used a technicality to avoid putting the red light photo-shoot on the ballot would indicate, to me at least, that they fear the outcome of the ballot on this subject. If the City is truly interested in Public safety, there is a better way to […]

Reader defends the red light camera issue

Dear Editor, It doesn’t surprise me at all that the Houston Coalition against red light cameras , or Capt. Van Der Grinten, would use the death of someone to enforce their stand that cameras didn’t prevent the accident. Once again, the driver who went through the red light was not from Sugar Land. The majority of Sugar […]

Response to Republican Editorial Against Obamacare

This is my first time to respond to Michael Fredrickson’s column who is also the owner of the Fort Bend Star,  His“I’m Sick and Tired…” column is entertaining only to like- minded people who revel in his personal insults directed at President Obama on every subject imaginable. In his Nov. 20, 2013 column he makes […]

Reader repulsed by conservative columnists

Dear Editor, I think I have come to an understanding about my frustration with your paper’s so-called Conservative-columnists.  It is not rooted in my disdain their poor narrative skills or even their unending rants.  It comes from my recognizing that they never, ever say anything Positive.  They offer no solutions, except for “Vote GOP (Tea-Party, […]

Veteran receives thanks and gift from stranger

Dear Editor, I recently went to the veterans clinic in Richmond for blood work. Since i was fasting for my blood work and was hungry, I stopped at a Whataburger for breakfast on my way back. After eating my breakfast I returned to the drink fountain for a water refill.  On my way out I hear […]

Klentzman responds to letter from Joe Harrison (Refining your paper)

Editor’s note: Mr. Harrison’s letter was received through our contact us page. His letter follows:  “I read an article on your website written by LeaAnn Klentzman. It was about a shooting involving a police officer. What a piece of childish garbage! Who speaks/writes like that? I have a 7 year old niece with a better […]

Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS) is striking veterans at an alarming rate

Dear Editor, The press has done a very good job of reporting about the challenges our veterans face. We all have read or seen stories about our wounded warriors. About traumatic brain injury. About veterans suffering from depression and other serious mental health issues. About those who have lost limbs or endure other physical hardships. […]

Reader responds to Presswood’s letter to editor

Sir, nobody said you had to read EVERY word in the paper. On more then a few occasions, I thought Bev’s Burner was off in left field and I just chose not read it that week. Let’s not throw the baby out with the bath water, I’ve enjoyed reading “The Star“. I’ve especially enjoyed the different […]
