Safe nuclear energy

The April 18 opinion column Tritium levels no threat to our drinking water, concerning Turkey Point, is, revealingly, off the mark. According to the Scientific American, “There is no definitive epidemiological study to assess the true risk of tritium.”

Double standard

Anjali Ramkissoon is fired by Jackson Health System for her verbal and physical attack on an Uber driver. Miami-Dade Judge Jacqueline Schwartz, aka “Wacky Jackie,” was allegedly impaired on the bench, had a profane outburst in a local restaurant and was fined and suspended for two earlier offenses. She is placed on a paid suspension. That’s wacky!

Carbon emissions

I’m appalled by John A. Lanzetta’s April 27 letter in which he dismisses the role played by man-made carbon emissions in the increase of atmospheric carbon dioxide.

Thanks to police

As an African-American male and community advocate, I would like thank South Florida’s law-enforcement community for the swift justice and gentle service they’ve provided throughout violence-torn communities for the past three months.

Pachyderm heaven

How do we know elder elephants truly want quietude and the deep countryside with aging mates going on with all those memories they’ll never forget, as letter writer Kate Dylewsky declares (Elephant retirement, April 24)?

Opa-locka officials

The only way to ensure that civil servants in any position whether federal, state, county or city stay honest is by sending a strong message that any one who betrays the trust that the public has bestowed upon them will automatically have a 10-year mandatory sentence.

Ex-felons vote

Re Leonard Pitts Jr.’s April 27 column, Politics as usual as ex-felons get a vote: I almost always share Pitts’ views. But he seems to think that Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s recent executive order restoring the civil rights of Virginia’s more than 200,000 convicted felons who have completed all portions of their sentences reeks political expediency in favor of Hillary Clinton’s candidacy. He said that the we can only applaud it, “while holding our nose.”

Restore the Dorsey Memorial Library

Thirteen years ago, the city of Miami finally declared the D.A. Dorsey Memorial Library, located at 100 NW 17 St., a historic site. Dana Anderson “D.A.” Dorsey was a businessman, banker and philanthropist who became one of the first African-American millionaires in Florida.

Letters to the Editor

Holocaust parents

As a child of Holocaust survivors, I thank U,S. Rep. Illena Ros-Lehtinen for sponsoring legislation [H.Con.Res 129] and articulating the need for Holocaust victims to live with dignity and security in their remaining years, and urging Germany to reaffirm its commitment to the needs of vulnerable and financially destitute Holocaust victims.

Letters to the Editor

FPL and solar

More lies and distortion from FPL chief executive Eric Silagy who falsely stated that residential rooftop solar is expensive, and poor customers subsidize rich ones who own solar panels according to the April 29 article, Is it a lab or a parking lot? FPL, FIU partner on new solar project.

Letters to the Editor

Ferals and disease

In addition to recent controversies about feral cats in Miami-Dade, the public should be aware that serious human parasitic disease (toxocariasis) is carried by both cats and dogs within their intestines.

Letters to the Editor

Kasich and Cruz

The recent announcement of the Ted Cruz/John Kasich political alliance conjures up thoughts of the old Bevis and Butthead characters getting together to plan their next caper: “Hey, Bevis, did you know that Trump has small hands?” Haha, Haha.
