Reader frustrated over the red light cameras issue

Dear Editor, I would like to state my disappointment and frustration in reading of the City Council’s decision to invalidate the citizen petition to ban red light cameras in Sugar Land. It is regrettable when the will of the people becomes secondary to technicalities and the egos of elected representatives and city employees. Instead, a […]

Say it ain’t so – says reader

The […]

Reader addicted to Bev’s Burner

Dear Editor, For some reason Sugar Mill doesn’t get the paper anymore but I read a friend’s. I was shocked to read that there isn’t a gap of Ms. Carter writing but that she might not be writing any longer at all. When I moved to the area, I knew that in order to be […]

Reader says…Thank you, Ms. Carter

Dear Beverly, I have enjoyed, and most often relished, your news/opinion columns.  I have read in recent months, and certainly in your last column, a certain resignation from you. I pray for your re-birth of health and energy.  You have provided me with stimulations of both my funny bone and my viscera.  You have been […]
