Letter to the Editor: No comparison

Trump hate blinds common sense. How can anyone compare the Trump children and their involvement in running the Trump business for years and Hunter Biden’s lack of experience in the job he had? Let’s face it. He got the job because he is a Biden and the hope he could bring something of value to […]

Letter to the Editor: Puny county budget?

After reading Sunday’s article about the three county budgets, (“120 county employees in Delaware top $100K in pay,” Oct. 7) I could not believe you said and I quote that ‘’Kent County ends up at a comparatively PUNY $65 million budget.’’ Are you serious?

Letter to the Editor: Support Endangered Species Act

I am writing in support of the Endangered Species Act, and in opposition to efforts by Congress to undermine this landmark wildlife conservation law.

Regarding the letter sent by PETA on the ‘sin tax’ for meat and dairy sales. I recently spoke to a fictitious character on this matter whose insights I thought should be shared in response to the article.
