LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

The Herald values its readers' letters. We receive far more than we can print, so we try to publish the most representative, interesting, and provocative. To give more readers a say, we condense letters. And we do not publish letter writers more often than once per 60 days. Letters must bear the writer's name, full address, and daytime phone number.

    We knew PAMM would need help

  • Save on energy costs

    Florida’s unrelenting heat is often felt in our utility bills. In addition to finding ways to decrease your energy use, you may want to consider products and appliances that use less energy and water. An upcoming tax-free holiday on many energy-efficient appliances and water-saving products will help you do just that. This tax-free holiday runs from Sept. 19-21.

  • Passport to ride

    On Sept. 12, letter writer, Golden Passport misuse, Floreal de la Garza wrote regarding the fare-free Golden Passport program. I would like to clarify some of the claims made about this program, which benefits so many in our community. The Golden Passport program that existed prior to the approval of the People’s Transportation Plan in 2002 had an income requirement. Under the current Golden Passport program, a permanent Miami-Dade resident who is 65 years of age or older is eligible to receive a Golden Passport, regardless of income. Permanent Miami-Dade residents who are Social Security beneficiaries, regardless of age, also qualify.
