Letter: Leave the politics out of abortion

To the Editor, As Americans celebrate and reflect on the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling 42 years ago, I urge Congress and state legislators to listen to doctors and medical experts who know that legal abortion is safe, and that politicians should not interfere in personal medical decisions. Despite the fact that abortion is one […]

Letter: Think before you rush to judgment

    To the Editor, In the last year, we have witnessed attacks on our police and condemnation of our long fought judicial rights. While many people felt with the election of a bi-racial president (yes, President Obama is both black and white) tensions would ease and a new dawn would be upon us, it appears […]

Letter: Vote yes for flood project

    To the Editor, On Thursday, we urge you to vote yes on Proposition No. 1, the FEMA Midland Valley Drainage Project. Though village government and Bronxville School governance rarely overlap on capital projects, this FEMA project is a unique joint venture to mitigate flooding on school grounds and in nearby residential neighborhoods.

Letter: Racism prevails in recent shootings

    To the Editor, More than 40 years ago I read a book called “White Man’s Justice, Black Man’s Grief.” It was a prison novel by the late Donald Goines that detailed the racism and brutality of prison life in America. It was a book about race in America that I read at the […]

Letters: Miller’s comments full of entitlement

    To the Editor, The racist comments of Mamaroneck Village Trustee Ilissa Miller about Latino’s brought a larger issue that I think needs to be addressed. That is the “entitlement” mentality of many whites that engenders the kind of comments that you see not only coming from this trustee but many whites especially in […]

Letter: $230,180 and counting

    To the Editor, Each month our school board is dumping $13,540 of our tax money into the ocean by keeping Osborn teacher Mrs. Mehler reassigned. They have been doing this for the past 17 months which adds up to a staggering amount of $230,180,excluding legal fees. In our schools, and town, we are very fortunate to […]

Letter: Silly, isn’t it?

    To the Editor, Why do people have guns? In the United States we have law enforcement to protect us. There are local, county and state police, and federal law enforcement agencies. We also have some in security-type positions carrying guns. The right to bear arms should remain. The right to bear arms was really put in place to […]

    To the Editor, We are writing to you today to ask for your vote for Brian Keating for fire commissioner in the Eastchester Board of Fire Commissioners election this Tuesday, Dec. 9. Thanks to increased voter turnout and taxpayer focus on the annual fire district elections, our fire district is now managed by […]

Letter: All for health centers in our schools

    To the Editor, I want to applaud the Mamaroneck Board of Education for reviewing the model of a school-based health center, SBHC, for our district. As a licensed clinical social worker, I have been involved with the school-based health center model for more than a decade and can attest to the benefits of […]
