Why kill these oaks?

 

Who are the airheads that permitted the destruction, not removal and replanting, of all but one oak tree in the old KMart parking lot, between the front of the building and the Busway on South Dixie — in addition to three oak trees at east end of the Winn-Dixie parking lot at the same location? The old KMart store is being remodeled into a Super Target store. When the trees were there, the parking lot was fairly cool. Now it will be planted with some stupid exotic palm trees that give no shade and it will be like an oven. I thought that there is a law against destroying our native oak trees.

  • No to courthouse bond

    I’m tired of paying for county bonds for things that I don’t need or want. Children’s Trust, Jackson Memorial, the school district and now the courthouse. All these on top of many more outstanding bonds that the county (i.e. the taxpayers) are have to pay back with interest for years and years.

  • Flawed judge

    Re the Miami Herald’s Aug. 28 editorial, The hard part is over, regarding newly elected judicial candidate Veronica Diaz: It was not the “faith and forgiveness” of the voters who placed this young woman on the bench, but the less-informed voters who do not read, hence do not keep abreast of Ms. Diaz’s unethical ways and the scandals in which she has been involved. I do not expect any justice coming from her division. God help those who appear before her. Only people with connections will prevail in her courtroom. There will be no justice for the average Joe.

  • We didn’t vote

    My wife and I are super voters. This was probably the first primary we didn’t vote in 40 years. I am disgusted. If we get one more poverty vote donation request from our party we may just go NPA. I did not vote for most of the people emailing me. Thirty emails a week are a turn off! Leave me alone.
