Lock Your Doors

Dear Editor:

Please make sure you lock your automobile at night.

A week ago, Thursday, I inadvertently left my car door open overnight (on Beach 126th Street).

The next morning I found that someone had ransacked through the car and stole two pairs of sunglasses.

You cannot tell if my car doors were locked from the outside, so they must have been walking down the street in the middle of the night, checking car doors to see if they were open!

Dear Editor:

I have enjoyed The Rockaway Times and Peter Mahon’s Between The Bridges column for a long time. But what is it lately with his column? His snide comments with a far right bias is getting too much to take. I thought the column was

Storm Protection Needed

Dear Editor:

Last Friday I was invited by Congressman Meeks, as a representative of Rockaway Women for Progress, to participate in an unprecedented event regarding storm protection in Rockaway. With so many different needs from east to west and bay to ocean, it seems our disparate requests, demands, and wishes have made for a perfect environment of confusion and, perhaps, delay. 

We, as a peninsula, have both completely different storm protection needs every few

Reassign Troopers

Dear Editor:

Aren't the motorists of NY State and NYC hit hard enough with gas tax, parking tickets, tolls, registration fees, moving violations, etc. to satisfy the appetites of these insatiably greedy politicians that seem to hold cradle to grave appointments? Do we really need to have the double jeopardy of Highway Patrol and State Police patrolling the same stretches of roadway?

Can't Cuomo find a more deserving county in NYS that can use a greater police presence? It's

 Dear Editor:

I am a recent transplant to the area nearly two years ago now, having moved from the north of Ireland. I enjoy reading The Times  every week and getting a bit of the local flavor and viewpoints from Between the Bridges and Boyleing Points.

I was struck by the recent article, "The Hallmark Cure."  I too feel the same dismay at the current political climate in the country that I have been proud to call my new home. I moved from a bitterly divided country to where I had thought the

Good Old Broad Channel

Dear Editor,

Why, I could walk down the boulevard, then Jamaica Bay Boulevard, all sand, and say hello to everyone. Now? Forget it. All new people, or perhaps grandchildren or great-grandchildren of the people I remember. Some of them even have the same names. Regardless, I’m still here in the old homestead or “Boathouse,” my dad, William, and his two brothers, Charles and Arthur, built on the boulevard in 1898 and completed in 1900.

I was baptized, confirmed and

 Dear Editor:

The disaster in Texas is seriously Superstorm Sandy times 10. Think about that. And all I see is people of all stripes and colors helping and saving each other. We are all Americans. Before this happened the media was trying to make us believe we were at the brink of a civil war. Nazis and Antifa are literally one percent of our population. I believe that. Find some common ground.

Thank you to all the amazing people doing incredible things for these Americans. They have such a

 Dear Editor:

This is correspondence between Matthew Peres and Build It Back:
