    Renewable energy is better than FPL’s nuclear power lines

    In his July 15 letters Bury FPL’s high-voltage transmission lines, former South Miami mayor Horace Feliu insists that the city of South Miami should pay the $18 million that FPL demands in order to underground the high-voltage transmission lines it proposes on U.S. 1 to support a pair of nuclear plants.

  • No double standard

    What is all this talk admonishing Israel about not killing civilians and being disproportionate in its response to Hamas?

  • Police transparency

    It is about time that the police begin taping interrogations — and that should be only the first step. There is no reason for jurors or anyone else to trust the police. Every time a cop gets busted, the blue wall descends and nothing happens. If police want to be respected again, then the state attorney’s office must prosecute cops who break the law and send them to prison; police departments must fire cops who abuse privileges; and police officers must show respect for the law and citizens. The best way to do that is to wear body cams and use dashboard and station cams.

  • Support gay constituents

    Mayor Herta Holly and Councilmen Hunt Davis and Jim McCoy have turned their backs on the gay and lesbian community and their families in Miami Shores.

  • Crist ducks debate

    What hypocrisy! In saying that he’ll accept public campaign cash, Charlie Crist said, “I think it’s a good idea because the public needs to be involved in our government, our democracy.” Yet he has declined to debate Nan Rich, the other Democratic candidate for governor. From Crist’s point of view, democracy means using taxpayers’ money, but not giving them a chance to know where he stands on issues compared to Rich. Not democratic at all.

    Why Zo is the Heat’s MVP

    The Miami Heat lost the battle against the San Antonio Spurs for the NBA title and the subsequent battle against the Cleveland Cavaliers for LeBron James. However, the Heat won the more-important war with Miami-Dade County for what has been referred to by some as a sweetheart deal for the AmericanAirlines Arena.

  • New Dade County Youth Fair

    As a lifelong resident of Miami-Dade, a business leader and a member of the Florida International University President’s Council, I would like to thank our Miami-Dade commissioners and Mayor Carlos Gimenez for their reaffirming support to provide additional county-owned land for FIU adjacent to its Tamiami Campus and to find a new, suitable location for the youth fair.

  • Healthcare issues

    Re the article Doctors declining to accept Obamacare plans came at an interesting time for me. I knew it wouldn't be easy carrying insurance purchased through the exchange, as everything comes with a price, but I had no idea it would be so difficult to find a doctor that accepts said insurance.
