    Don’t create nightmare traffic a road to nowhere

    Re the Sept. 6 article, Dolphin Expressway extension gets mixed reaction: In 2004 when the Miami-Dade Commission had an agenda filled with proposed developments to extend the Urban Development Boundary, a group called Hold the Line was organized and stopped the commission. I am proud to have been a leader as president of the Urban Environment League along with the Tropical Audubon Society, the Sierra Club, and hundreds of residents from the many communities that comprise Miami-Dade County. The Commission wisely stopped this attack on the natural environment of the western limits of the county.

  • Support PAMM

    Re the Sept. 12 Other Views column, PAMM shouldn’t get public funding: How could any piece be so far off base?

  • Hobby Lobby whim

    Re the Miami Herald’s Sept. 7 Other Views column, Hobby Lobby decision a blow to practice of medicine: I take exception to the characterization by Drs. John Jennings and Britani Kessler of the deeply held convictions of some employers as “whims” to be cavalierly brushed aside.

  • Local speed trap

    When writing about speed-traps and ticket quotas in the Sept. 3 article, Notorious speed-trap town faces ticket-quota scandal, we don’t have to go very far, certainly not to Waldo in North Florida. Right here in our city of Doral there is hardly a driver that hasn’t accumulated a good number of tickets due to speed-traps.

  • Smile for the cameras

    Re the Sept. 11 article, the Miami Beach city commission approves body cameras for employees: Oh, great. Now the Miami Beach police can show off their new toys to all the barflies at the beach bars. What fun!

  • Greyhound abuse

    Thanks to the Miami Herald for bringing attention to the disgraceful treatment of Florida’s racing greyhounds and the state of Florida’s complicity in this cruelty in the Sept. 14 article, Dogs killed as state looks the other way.

    Public libraries save lives

    With so much going on in the world — wars, epidemics, throngs of displaced people — one would think that the fate of public libraries in Miami wouldn’t concern anyone but the locals. Such an assumption would be dead wrong. Someone in far-away Connecticut cares deeply.

  • Don’t hit women

    Re the Ray Rice domestic violence incident. There used to be two cardinal rules for a man, passed down from fathers to sons: Hold your liquor and don’t ever hit a woman. Nowadays, there seems to be a lot of boys in men’s bodies.
