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 […]

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 […]

Reader says the law is the law any way you slice it

Dear Editor, The whole argument against red light cameras astounds me in its attempt to wiggle past the bald truth. If you enter the intersection when the light is red, you have broken the law. Period. There is a split second between it being yellow and it being red, and after that split second is […]

The whole the truth …nothing but the truth

Dear Editor, The City of Sugar Land remains tight lipped about its continuing attempt to hide the fact that red light camera (RLC) fines are virtually voluntary. My attempt to elicit an explanation for the continuing use of false threats to coerce the payment of RLC fines has only resulted in official silence. I first […]

Glad you’re back Beverly says reader

Dear Beverly, I’m glad to hear that you’re feeling better and back to your feisty self.  I miss your columns when you’re away.  You are one of those rare truth-tellers and are a Texas treasure. Sincerely, Sandy Pardo

Sugar Land resident pursuing red light camera violatons says city deceiving public

Dear Editor, In its efforts to keep the revenue flowing the City of Sugar Land is deceiving the driving public. They don’t want you to know that red light camera fines are virtually voluntary. I have filed an open records request (ORR) as follows: “Regarding red light camera (RLC) tickets please provide answers to the […]
