In response to the story ("Downtown dealing with dog waste issues," The Daily News, Aug. 19): It would be wonderful if there were pet stations throughout the city that offered bags and disposal of pet waste. Most responsible pet owners do pick up after their canine children.
At 7 p.m. Sept. 3 at The Grand 1894 Opera House, the season-opener “pops” concert will be presented by the Galveston Symphony Orchestra. Perhaps a few numbers are in order to help us appreciate this Galveston "jewel:"
I recently read the letter by Vicki Kenworthy ("Sports and politics don't mix," The Daily News, Aug. 18). Seems this issue just goes on and on. Folks want to call it racist, politics or what have you. It's very simple. Mr. Kaepernick has the right to show no respect for his country or the pe…
America needs to grow up and stop dwelling on the past and start focusing on the future. Look around and all you hear and see are citizens raising total chaos that happened generations ago. History has, for sure, thrown its share of good, bad and ugly upon us today, but rioting, protesting a…
In response to the story "Schools, NASA prepare for solar eclipse" (The Daily News, Aug. 17): Eclipse glasses or watching on TV are not the only options. You can safely view the eclipse with just a few simple supplies.
Amazing how certain Americans are outraged and want to put to death Colin Kaepernick for exercising his constitutional rights; however, these same people close their eyes and brains when it comes to the activities of Trump, skinheads, the KKK and other hate groups who are exercising their co…
Cut the baby in half. Remember when King Solomon mediated between two prostitutes (1 Kings Chapter 4)? He would have cut the baby in half, had the true mother not loved the baby enough to give it up in order to spare its life. The other woman would have seen the baby killed just so she could…
I have to respond to the "Weber: Let insurance companies fix health care system” (The Daily News, Aug. 14) article: Randy Weber’s answer to fixing the Affordable Care Act is to fully repeal the Affordable Care Act and let insurance companies find solutions for America’s health care system.
Ann Coulter praised President’s Trump’s proposal restricting immigration to people needed for skills for which no U.S. citizen can be found ("Trump got your tongue, media?," The Daily News, Aug. 14). I am in total agreement with this just as it was when I came here.
In reference to the column by Paul Newberry ("Cutler has a job, Kaepernick doesn't," The Daily News, Aug. 9): I believe the whole hubbub that Colin Kaepernick has brought to the table changes just about everybody’s take on football. It used to be a family game, but now, of course — politics …
Cathy Gillentine's column ("Don't fall for the scam that I was a victim of," The Daily News, Aug. 15) reminded me of the same thing that happened to my husband a few years ago. The crooks, however, have changed their tactics a little.
My family lived in Galveston for two years, before moving to League City in 2007. When we first arrived in League City, I could see large trees and dense emerald green forests. As I look outside my car 10 years later, all I see are a plethora of restaurants and superstores. I understand that…
Judge Mark Henry is correct about not removing statues of veterans that serve their country ("Henry says 'no' to removing Confederate statue," The Daily News, Aug. 17).
Galveston should get rid of half addresses. My address is Avenue X 1/2 and am trying to clear an identity theft case. A slash (/) is not recognized by many official agencies. Thus, they have my address as Avenue X 12, or Avenue X, Apt 12 and this is an entirely different street than Avenue X 1/2.
In response to the column in the sports section by Paul Newberry ("Cutler has a job, Kaepernick doesn't," The Daily News, Aug. 9): For me, it's a no-brainer that a team owner would not sign someone when the team's own fans would probably boo him off the field. Not to mention the other team's fans.
I read where the state's windstorm insurer of the last resort on Tuesday (Aug. 1) will consider raising next year's rates ("Windstorm insurer to consider rate hike," The Daily News, July 31).
Texas-New Mexico Power Co. needs to be held accountable. I have lived in my home in Dickinson for over five years; I could have purchased a home anywhere in the county, but I chose to live in the thriving city of Dickinson.
In response to the guest column by Alvin Sallee ("Attacking transgender people an alt-right tactic," The Daily News, Aug. 1): There he goes again throwing out the same old stale liberal bait: if you don't agree with me you are a hateful bigot.
American Rosie the Riveter Association seeks women who worked on the home front during World War II. Thousands of women worked to support the war effort as riveters, welders, electricians, inspectors and in many other jobs.
The abuse of the so-called medical passes that allow local citizens to cut in line onto ferry services is shameful. There is a need for this law, but when it's abused in such a manner, shameful.
The GOP-controlled Congress and administration tell us that the Affordable Care Act is imploding due to exorbitant premiums and deductibles; and the withdrawal of insurers from 30 percent of U.S. counties. In 2016, 2 percent of the insured under the ACA were in counties having only one healt…
We own a beach house on the West End, and I pass numerous signs saying "No Vehicles on Beach." While I was taking a morning walk, I also passed a golf cart of a family taking a morning ride with their dog. This is not my first encounter with a golf cart; however, they were driving slowly.
I walk three miles, three days a week on the seawall, and I drive the seawall almost every day. I’m very pleased with the updates that have taken place, especially the additions of the trolley stops and the restrooms (even though the time between creating a hole in the pavement and completin…
Lowering the speed limit on the seawall seems to be a waste of time and money, i.e. changing all speed limit signs ("City council might lower seawall speed limit," The Daily News, July 25).
An old saying goes, “if you don’t learn from the past, you’re doomed to repeat it.” When looking at public pensions in Texas, we would all be served to see what we can learn from the past. Turns out, it’s a history we should want to repeat.
Do you know why terrorists do the things they do? They do terrible things to groups of innocent non-combatants, in the hopes that the citizenry will try to avoid future attacks by complaining to — and possibly rising up against — their own government. Get it? It is a form of blackmail.
The 46th annual Hitchcock Good Ole Days Festival and Bar-B-Q Cook-off will be Aug. 11-12. Hitchcock girls between the ages of 6-18 are invited to be a part of the annual pageant contest.
While I was very glad to hear the crime rate is nearly flat in Galveston over the past few years, that doesn't tell the complete story. Ike washed away all public housing in 2008. Crime plummeted 50 percent over the next decade.
Kudos and thanks are due to The Daily News for your coverage of the news. Yes, you are a reputable “news” paper and cover the news as it is actually happening.
The Three Musketeers did a good hatchet job on the Democrats; however, they failed to include a few of the Republicans shortcomings ("Americans need to work together," The Daily News, July 17).
“Texans pay the sixth-highest property tax in the nation and Texans have told us loud and clear that common-sense property tax reform legislation is long overdue,” Dan Patrick says. (In a statement in November after Sen. Paul Bettencourt, R-Houston, filed Senate Bill 2, which limits property…
I have researched this area in League City where our homes are located and there is no record of a storm that would require us to have Texas Windstorm Insurance.
I would like to offer an opinion in reference to the police community problem in La Marque ("Council: Department to focus on community policing," The Daily News, July 11).
The article ("Study: Galveston faces 'chronic inundation' in coming decades," The Daily News, July 13) highlights the island’s future due to rising sea levels. Street flooding will become a more constant problem with heavy rains since there will be higher tides and nowhere for the water to d…
The Constitution gives the president the power to grant a pardon to anyone, including himself, for offenses against the United States; therefore, the current investigation is a waste of time and taxpayer's money.
The gist of Michael Gaertner's column ("Here's how to make Broadway beautiful," The Daily News, July 11) was to rub out automotive services. Cars are people, people are cars. Ninety-nine percent of us arrive in your fair city by car. You also drive used cars, work trucks, Jeeps. The Auto Zon…
Myself and many others were disappointed by the lack of advertising for the new Houston Texans, Texas City's own D'Onta Foreman's parade and pep rally.
