Missouri City police & fire department fully staffed – resident thinks not

Dear Editor, I am concerned with the way one Missouri City candidate conducted his campaign.  He mislead the voters on a technicality. He stated that the Missouri City police and fire department are fully staffed.  They are.. technically with the budget that the mayor and council gives them. Worst case senerio… If it costs 60,000 to hire […]

Proud to support Congressman Olson’s defense to 2nd Amendment rights

Dear Editor, Recent events have driven gun control proposals throughout congress and the administration, largely based on emotional reactions. While I appreciate the sentiment behind these proposals, I do not believe they will achieve the desired results. A large step in the right direction would be to enforce the gun laws currently on the books […]

Reader says Missouri City’s police facility needs revamping

Dear Editor, I seem to be somewhat confused when it comes to the running of Missouri City.  It seems that our officials are like Nero, they fiddle (or play golf) while the major parts of the city go to pot. Prime example is our so called police station. It is really an old Food Lion […]

Trash dumps in Missouri City? Surely looks like it says reader

trashdumpsMO_featured

Hi Bev, Do you know Missouri City has added 2 more trash dumps? Both are at City Center. The 1st is between the New City Center Club House and the Eldorado 18th green. For the last 3 months, the city has dumped all of the trash from the bridge project and expansion of the cart […]

Van Der Gritten says letters express unqualified support of red light cameras

Dear Editor, Letters to the editor in “Star’s” 02-20-13 letters to the editor express unqualified support for Sugar Land’s red light cameras.  They ignore the fact that overzealous law enforcement must not be allowed to go unchallenged.  Strict enforcement of the law should always be tempered by compassion, a willingness to consider extenuating circumstances and […]

Thanks to Carter for telling it like it is

Beverly, I wanted to congratulate you on some excellent points made in your last Bev’s Burner article. It really was about time that someone took an objective look at what’s been happening over the past few years in Missouri City. Your diagnosis of the city basically spending too much on QVGC,the tennis and clubhouse facility, […]

Resident upset over Bev’s Burner of February 20

Dear Ms. Carter, I am writing to express my very strong disagreement with and disappointment with your recent very unfair and derogatory article regarding Missouri City and our very dedicated elected officials.  I believe your comments are very inaccurate.  This kind of smear attack serves no useful purpose and in fact is potentially damaging to […]

Sugar Land’s Town Center will never have “Heart and Soul” history says reader

Dear Editor, Regarding the article on the “Star’s” front page 2/27:  Ms. Morales described Town Square as …”It is our heart and soul…” I’m a native Sugar Land resident.  I was born in the Eldridge Hospital, at Wood and Lakeview Streets, 61 years ago, grew up and still live in Sugar Land. The City of […]

Elsa, Just wanted to thank the “Star” for all the great coverage you gave us for Fort Bend Cares Road Trip to the Orient fundraiser. A special thanks to you for the great Star Spotter column in last week’s paper! Laura Richard Fort Bend Cares Executive Director

Residents says … Obey the law and you won’t have to worry about the cameras

Dear Editor, Being a Missouri City resident who spends a significant amount of time driving in Sugar Land, I would hope that H. Van Der Grinten’s concern about red light cameras be focused on safe defensive driving habits rather than the purpose he perceives for those cameras existence. Frankly, I could care less why Sugar […]
