    Aging gracefully? No way!

    I want to comment on Ms. Gina Barreca’s July 19 Other Views column on aging. She’s writing from the perspective of a 57-year-old woman; I’m 75. My perspective is living the process:

  • Keep Beckham

    What are mayors of Miami and Miami-Dade doing while Broward Mayor Barbara Sharief is getting a list of possible homes for the Beckham Group’s soccer franchise from all of that county’s 31 cities? After getting the thumbs-down on at least two port and downtown Miami possible venues, it would appear that wise government leaders in Broward are going into full-court press mode to lure the MLS star to make that county his home. It is time for the powers that be in both Miami and Miami-Dade to understand they don’t have a lock on this valuable sports venture. There’s still time left to take the Beckham Group more seriously.

  • Miami Shores vote

    Miami Shores residents Clark Reynolds and Dennis Leyva said in their July 24 letter to the editor that it took courage for Councilwoman Ivonne Ledesma and me to vote for a nonbinding resolution supporting marriage equality in Florida. While I appreciate the compliment, in 2008 when our state approved a constitutional amendment prohibiting gay folks from marrying, Miami Shores voters said “no” to this nonsense when 62 percent of our voters voted for marriage equality. Mayor Herta Holly, Councilmen Jim McCoy and Hunt Davis are the ones who should be singled out for voting against the interests of our wonderful village.

  • FIU vs. Youth Fair

    I recently read the story about FIU and their expansion plans in your newspaper. I was raised on Long Island in New York, and didn´t grow up with the Miami-Dade Youth Fair. But I comprehend people’s nostalgia about this family tradition.

  • They have no sympathy for children

    It seems like the gun-toting mobs of the far right feel threatened by children at the border. I guess they would have stopped the undocumented baby Jesus at the Egyptian border to send him back to King Herod.

    Preliminary library tax rate must survive

    County commissioners praised the hundreds of residents who descended upon Government Center recently to plead for a $64 million library budget for the coming year. Commissioners settled on a less ambitious course, approving a slight increase above Mayor Carlos Gimenez’s recommended tax rate to avert further service cuts and layoffs of an additional 90 librarians.

  • A very liveable city

    Re the July 21 article Car-free and frustrated: I, too, live in Brickell and I have been delighted with the wonderful transportation system in downtown Miami. I can easily get to the University of Miami hospitals, the airport, the Arsht Center, the museums and hundreds of great restaurants. And when the new Brickell City Center opens, with its great shops, it will be even better. I almost never use my car.

  • Immigration reform

    Re the July 18 editorial, Follow the law: We should rescue some valid assertions. First, we all should know why so much insecurity exists in Central America.
