Ocean View book gets a strong review

Editor:

Congratulations on the Coastal Point’s amazing booklet on the history and culture of Ocean View.

It was very well-researched, well-written and held our interest from page one. It covered an amazing amount of history and had great photographs, as well.

Congratulations on a great job!

Reminder regarding Letters to the Editor

Per our policy, we will not run any letters to the editor the week before the Nov. 8 election. Therefore, our Oct. 28 issue will be the last time readers can promote any candidates for this year’s general election.

Also, and this is important, we expect our letters to be supportive of candidates, as opposed to bringing the conversation into the gutter.

I read with interest the article in the Sept. 23 issue of the Coastal Point encouraging residents to become informed and prepared in case of emergencies.

Reader takes issue with previous letter

Editor’s note: The following letter is a response to a recent letter to the editor by the Rev. Cameron Swain in support of the death penalty.

Editor:

Rev. Cameron Swain: Is the death penalty, as a fragment of historical practice, a Christian duty?

Letters to the Editor — September 2, 2016

Reader disagrees with previous letter

Editor:

In response to Rev. [Cameron] Swain’s letter supporting capital punishment [Pastor supports capital punishment, Aug. 26 issue], I must say I’m shocked. What kind of interpretation is that? Who are we humans to decide another man’s fate? We imperfect humans.

Reader not a fan of road project

Editor:

In a recent article published in the Coastal Point regarding the Route 26 widening project, it was stated that it is a “model” for future construction. This is a very scary thought.

If anything, the project has been one not-very-well-thought-out incident after another. Let’s look at the problems they left behind.

Reader talks bike, walking safety

Editor:

We are continually asked to watch out for bikers and pedestrians, but we never see anything about them being careful. By careful I mean obeying the rules. I often see bikers ride through a red light or stop sign.

Fenwick resident looks to new faces

Editor:

I feel I must respond to the letter “Reader discusses Fenwick issues.” It is a shame that this reader decided to make baseless claims against an unnamed candidate. All of us in Fenwick Island should be happy that we have a choice of candidates this year.

Letters to the Editor – July 8, 2016

Elling responds to previous letter

Editor:

Greetings, Sherry Brannon of West Fenwick: I liked your response to my letter regarding the IRSD ending their use of “Indian cartoon mascots.” I am not sure about the teacher from “Peanuts,” as I am not into another cartoon image you referred to? I try to connect to real people.

On behalf of the Bethany-Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, the Town of Selbyville and Chamber team, I would like to thank everyone who supported the 59th Annual Old Timer’s Day to make it a memorable occasion.

Reader responds to previous letter

Editor:

Regarding Mr. Elling’s letter in last week’s Coastal Point, “Will the Indian River School District apologize for slavery?” I must respond by saying, “Will the Coastal Point’s editor apologize for printing Mr. Elling’s negative letters about our community week after week?”

Letters to the Editor – June 3, 2016
