In response to the article ("Mother charged after probe of malnourished triplets," The Daily News, Feb. 14): When the eight weeks premature infants were brought to the hospital in October 2017, it is unclear how old they were then. Even full-term triplets might be overwhelming for a new or n…

Red flags. Why don’t we always heed to the warning signs? The mortgage crisis of the 2000s; The Great Depression of 1929; the 1981 Recession; and in 2017-18 the three candidates that felt it was necessary to run against a 20-year career politician, Ken Clark.

Shawn Phillips' guest column "Told you Lonnie Cox is a bad judge" (The Daily News, Feb. 1) says Cox is dishonest, corrupt, a bad judge and probably criminal. Wow. He is entitled to his opinion — but that does not make it true.

At the heart of every Texan is a strong work ethic, desire for independence, self-reliance, and helping neighbors in need. The Republican Party supports those same beliefs. In the upcoming election we will be choosing a party chair to lead us for the next two years.

Broadway is a hot mess. I am sorry to say that, but I live on the island and have to drive it for work; the design needs rethinking. The new design should be to remove all trees and bushes and put simple median lights, like on the causeway, with actual turn lanes. This zig-zag pattern starti…
