I want to thank the Cottage Café for hosting the Dine and Donate for the Southern Sussex Rotary Club this past Wednesday, April 11. Brent and Tom have always been such great supporters of local community organizations. Thank you, Melanie, for helping us to organize the event.

Reader: Facts support president’s policies
Editor:

In response to Mr. Keely’s critique of my Feb. 3 letter, “Grateful for hope and change,” he erroneously believes that Halliburton was rewarded with no-bid multi-billion-dollar contracts in the lead up to the Iraq invasion because they were the only company qualified to perform the required services.

Letters to the Editor -- April 5, 2012

Reader grateful for responders to fire
Editor:

It is with profound humbleness that I find myself writing this thank you note. As most of you are aware, I had a house fire on the first floor of my home on Feb. 14, 2012. Even though I lost personal belongings, my life and my dogs were saved.

Reader offers opinion on dog-chaining law
Editor:

It is the most heartbreaking thing to see. That is the cruelty of dogs being chained or penned 24/7.

Letters to the Editor -- February 24, 2012

Media sources promote bigotry
Editor:

This is in response to Mr. [Thomas M.] Keely’s critique of my Feb. 3 letter, “Grateful for hope and change.” He presents a very long litany of complaints about our president. They beg the question of what media sources he utilizes to obtain his dubious information.

Farmers’ market a hit, thanks to many
Editor:

The 2011 Bethany Beach Farmers’ Market had a great season. We had more visitors, more sales, more farm products, more volunteers and more space for shoppers to browse for their favorite fresh fruits, vegetables and other farm-related products – in the heart of downtown Bethany Beach.

Letters to t he Editor -- February 3, 2012

You can fight town hall, if you do try
Editor:

How many times do we read an article in the paper and become so infuriated we toss the paper across the room in disgust? “How can those idiots do that?” we say to no one in particular. Two minutes later, we start on the sports page. We forget what upset us and move on with our lives.

Letters to t he Editor -- January 13, 2012

Local news scene a wild ride
Editor:

My wife and I have been part-time Ocean View residents for the past couple of years, and we truly love it here, along with the surrounding towns of Bethany and Millville. I’m trying to convince my wife that we should consider retiring here.

In each donation, we are able to fund life-saving research, education and advocacy efforts to combat lung cancer, childhood asthma, tobacco use, secondhand smoke, air pollution and influenza.

Hudson thankful for support
Editor:

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their generosity. When an illness like Leukemia strikes we don’t know what our future will bring.

Spirit of Christmas gets ringing endorsement
Editor:

Christmas is upon us once again. We need to take the time to remind ourselves that Christmas is about love. It is a time of charity and giving, not of materialism and receiving. A new iPad or a flatscreen might keep you entertained for a time, but ultimately they are just empty objects.

Local doctor will be missed
Editor:

After reading the news article recently published regarding Dr. Brent Fox, pain-management physician, of Salisbury, Md., I felt compelled to write this letter.

Reader examines
Reader examines school districts
Editor:

Welcome to the real competition between the school districts of Sussex County. It is the competition for Indian River High School and Sussex Central High School students. It is about the money each school district receives per student and how they differ in their funding packages.

Reader responds to rep's statements

Editor:

I enjoyed reading a letter from Rep. Pete Schwartzkopf regarding the Oct. 26 incident involving Sheriff Jeff Christopher and Councilman Vance Philips. Certainly, my tongue-in-cheek idea to settle the incident by giving the sheriff what he needs was not a feasible solution and should never have been taken seriously.

Letters to the Editor -- October 28, 2011

Reader responds to Steele’s letter
Editor:

Harry Steele’s letter in last week’s Coastal Point exposed the Americans for Democratic Action as a liberal group that supports Obamacare, the concept of the wealthiest Americans paying their fair share of taxes, the continuation and expansion of unemployment benefits, and equality for all, including the LGBT.

We are so blessed. The Community Food Pantry housed at Salem United Methodist Church will begin its 19th year in November. During the 2010/2011 seasons, we served 987 families, which set a record. Just a few years ago, we averaged just 75 families for the nine-month distribution period.

Dorfman gets support in campaign
Editor:

Even before Jerry Dorfman had an official presence serving on the Bethany town council, he acted unofficially as a supporter and promoter of Bethany Beach. His interest in the town always entered his conversations, and he was always interested in the needs of the townspeople and how their ideas could be implemented.

PETA gets out its message on animals

Right now, all over the world, millions of cats and dogs are staring out from behind bars in animal shelters, longing for a friend, or scrounging for food, dodging traffic and struggling to survive on the streets.
