Memorial Day Opportunity

To The Editor: Folks ready to fire up their outdoor grill on Memorial Day face a deadly choice of inflicting food poisoning or cancer on family and friends: food poisoning by E. coli and Salmonella bacteria, if they undercook the meat; cancer, if they heat meat to the point of creating cancer-causing compounds. Luckily, a […]

Silver Celebration For Society

To The Editor: It is hard to believe, but 25 years have passed since the Douglaston and Little Neck Historical Society came into being. And yet, considering all that DLNHS has accomplished during that quarter-century, it is equally incredible that so much has been done in so little time. Just a few of its accomplishments […]

Remember The Sacrifices

To The Editor: As the nation approaches Memorial Day, we must remember all of the men and women, past and present, who have sacrificed their lives so that we here at home could be able to live in freedom. Our military is the greatest in the world, and we owe them all a debt of […]

A Good Deal For The City, And The Teachers

To The Editor: The new contract between the City and the UFT is a monumental achievement for all New Yorkers because it is a milestone of reconciliation between management and labor. People can argue the merits of its details, but what is indisputable is that the Bloomberg era of deliberate, almost sadistic impasse and union-busting […]

Too Much Faith In The Government?

To The Editor: The premise of the liberal progressive collectivist ideal is that man is selfish and uncharitable and must be guided by a group of enlightened well intentioned omniscient benefactors.

This is the moment to step off the grounds, too, and explore all of the other wonderful things that are happening […]

Some Real Brave Musicians

To The Editor: Well, looks like Real Brave Music School has once again provided our Fresh Meadows community with the most outstanding live music performance yet!

Lend A Helping Hand

To The Editor: I believe homelessness is a problem. During the cold winters I have seen over three homeless groups wandering around. I am glad to see people giving them blankets but sad to see the homeless still shivering. We can fix this problem by forcing the homeless people into shelters. If they refuse to […]

Thanking His Councilman

To The Editor: Open letter to Council Member Eric A. Ulrich I need to thank your staff for helping me resolve a problem. On Tuesday last week I called your office and spoke with Arlene Brown. Told her my problem and she asked me to come in  the next day. I did and Greg Mitchell […]

An Animal Hero In Queens

To The Editor: Unfortunately, this year my dog’s health has begun to deteriorate. And while I’ve visited a number of pet clinics in search of treatment, my experience with Dr. Ayman Hanna at Animal Empire Veterinary Clinic, located on Grand Avenue in Maspeth, has been unmatched. I am writing this letter to thank Dr. Hanna, […]
