I am a homesteaded resident of Ocean Ridge living on Old Ocean Boulevard. In the summer I live in the resort community of Ogunquit, Maine. On an average weekend in our 10-week summer season, 60,000 people come to town to enjoy the baby-powder-sanRead more…
I agree with you that public funding for sand replacement on beaches should allow access to public beaches.
In Ocean Ridge we have four public parks either within or adjacent to the town. Three of these parks front the ocean. The town also has aRead more…
I just want to thank you for the quality newspaper that you produce. The layout, coverage and accuracy are a work of art. I’ve never seen a better boutique local paper.
In my opinion, most of the once-great newspapers are creating their own demi
I enjoyed Paula Detwiller’s article on the new Galaxy Elementary School, and also the follow-up story on teacher LaDeshia Brooks, once a student at the old Galaxy school.
As one of the architects working on the project, from my perspective I h
At SAFE’s urging, the Atlantic Plaza redeveloper agreed to the following:
1. Minimize traffic on Atlantic Avenue, particularly at the Atlantic Avenue Bridge, and north of Northeast First Street on Seventh Avenue;
2. Encourage the city to use it
Thank you so much to Arden Moore for helping to publicize the new law passed by Boynton Beach city commissioners, welcoming well-mannered dogs to be a part of the dining experience.
At long last, we are following the European example, where pets d
I read the article written by Ron Hayes in the September issue of The Coastal Star. Although I always enjoy your newspaper, the article about Gumbo Limbo and the rescue of Cindy by Ryan Butts and his colleagues was of particular interest.
I have repeatedly asked the mayor and city commissioners in public forums to describe how they distinguish between essential and non-essential services, and I can’t get an answer. When money is tight, taxpayers deserve to know which budget items areRead more…
Cities around the country are experiencing budgetary crunches that show no signs of easing. Delray Beach is no exception, but has an opportunity to save its residents money and increase transparency. Unfortunately, city management and elected officRead more…
Your newspaper and others keep preaching about the rights of bicyclists. I go out of my way, especially on weekends, for them. But until law enforcement does something, they continue to ride three or four abreast and continue not to respect the tRead more…
We moved to Ocean Ridge (twice) for several reasons: the unique character of the town compared to other barrier island communities, the small-town atmosphere and, most importantly, the availability of a local police and (in the past) fire/rescue forcRead more…
In our home we joke that newspapers have a 15-minute lifespan.
They are perused cover to cover as soon as they enter the house and then put into the recycling bin before they can get dispersed all over the house.
The Coastal Star is the except
Your editorial on town bullying was quite insightful [February 2012]. It’s obvious that bullying goes way beyond interactions between kids.
Interesting that our coastal towns are, for the most part, smaller communities whose residents have a wide
Although the Delray police said that the driver was not at fault, and that the “bicyclist was totally at fault,”the finding may not be that simple. [Police clear driver in fatal bike collision, February edition]
SAFE believes that the circumstance
As a specialist of the Autistic Unit at Lantana Middle School, I am asking for your help. There are 10 autistic children who need your help as well. These children struggle with their communication skills and language skills.

I, too, share your concern for litter on our beaches and waters. Litterbugs obviously feel no shame about trashing our beautiful coastal region, so I doubt lecturing their irresponsible behavior will have any effect.
However, we residents who walk t
