Dear Editor:

So, it took over two days for PSEG to have an employee show up with a long metal pole to reset the "trip switch" on the transformer for my block (The entire procedure maybe took 60 seconds!)

Meanwhile, over twenty households on my block didn't have electricity for over two days because of the utility's incompetence and mismanagement. If they had used a triage methodology immediately after the storm, they could have made a quick physical inspection and immediately reset the trip switch on the transformer. But that would require PSEG to demonstrate common sense and "Make things work for the customer."

Dear Editor:

A few weeks ago, my husband and I witnessed an awful bicycle accident in front of our apartment house, which looks out on the boardwalk at Beach 117th Street. It illustrates an underlying issue—speeding cyclists—that has been facing pedestrians walking on the boardwalk over the entire summer. The following letter is one that I've sent to all community/local politicians and agencies. I heard back from Joseph Addabbo and Eric Peterson of Parks

Dear Editor:

Thank you for the informative article on Rockaway Sailing. I took my grandchildren for a great experience on the bay. Captain Pete was awesome with the kids and gave us a day we will always remember! All three of my grandchildren were instructed about how to sail, the terms to use and we even had a swim in the bay when we dropped anchor. If you're looking for ways to make memories, I recommend a trip with Rockaway Sailing. Thanks Katie McFadden for the article and Rockaway Times

Dear Editor:

I’m a lifelong Rockaway resident. My father was born in the Rockaway hospital, I feel as though this is my place. There’s a lot of problems we’re having lately. Between the terrible roads we seem to be cursed to drive. Or the walking dead homeless that have been forced upon us. But another issue of mine is the extreme cyclists. I despise these people. They act like they have the right of way in every situation. All dressed up in their goofy skin tight bright yellow gear. All

Dear Editor:

When I turned to page 3 of the July 20th edition of your paper and looked at the photos of beach goers happily destroying the sand dunes meant to protect, as much as possible, the beach and inland property from inundation the first thing that came to mind was Albert Einstein’s comment, “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.” Sadly, he is so correct.

If anything, these photos reveal an example of human stupidity that

Dear Editor:

I’m a 70-year-old Covid-19 survivor with underlying conditions who had to self-quarantine for 14 days while sick as hell.

The experience makes me look at matters differently these days. I listen to the “backyard happy hours” that go on too late, especially on weekends! Short walks in the early morning replace my beach time because of overcrowded, unmasked, flip floppers. My gourmet skills are getting better because some bars/restaurants do not follow all proper safety
