LETTER: A legend passes

It’s with a very heavy heart that I received news that the greatest ball player of all time and an ambassador of the game has been brought up to the major leagues at the age of 93. The first time he was called up things were a little rocky. He was unsuccessful in his first 21 trips to the plate, yet he persevered. The man (soon to be legend) has been a tremendous inspiration to a vast amount of people growing up in the 1960s and 1970s, including myself. There will never be another number 24 in my lifetime.

I’m sure he will attain the same success at the next level. RIP Willie Mays.

All the Democrats in the Capitol whining and scheming to remove Mr. Biden from the ballot are being short-sighted. Joe is about to outfox them all.

LETTER: How can we report plate scofflaws?

Is it possible to have volunteers send in information on these expired plates? I would do so if I knew someone would follow through and check their status.

LETTER: Yes to red-light cameras

The camera systems must be operated by the county and not a contractor. The cost of operating the traffic camera systems must not be dependent on the fines collected.
