As a former Hitchcock mayor favoring zoning, I later supported Commissioner Sharon Enge's diligence in bringing zoning to Hitchcock in 2002, in the best interest of orderly growth within the city. Rezoning brings about change and change often brings resistance, understandably so. There is a …

Someone stole a Planned Parenthood sign from my front yard. I assume that the thief was a particular male who has no idea that Planned Parenthood provides for 15 male procedures. One of these is free vasectomies.

It seems that political polarization and partisan antipathy is deeper and more extensive today within this nation. Based upon political, social and racial ethnicity, citizens are verbally insulting and hating on other citizens that disagree with their political and social ideology.

Since our prescriptions were changed to Medicare Part D, some of our meds have gone up 1,000 percent from $2 or $3 to a minimum of $20. That just shows the hold the drug and insurance companies have over Congress.

Thank you, Leonard Woolsey, for your editorial ("Journalists are under fire," The Daily News, March 5). I have read and watched with growing concern the attacks Mr. Trump has made on the press. He doesn't seem to understand that "freedom of the press" means that others have the same right to…

Mr. President says the enemy of the people is lurking somewhere out there near the newsstand or the postoffice, the restaurant or your front yard. Compound sentences are no longer safe.
