Once again we are talking about beach sand and how what one town does affects others. There is no doubt at all that the groins South Palm wants to build will prevent some sand from reaching points south. Not being a lawyer, I have no clue whether
I am addressing the Editor’s Note, “Extra drive time a necessary nuisance this time of year,” that appeared in the June 2017 issue of The Coastal Star.
Upfront, I totally agree with the opinion that most construction projects on the barrier i
I want to thank the residents of Ocean Ridge for all the kindnesses shared with me during my campaign as your town commissioner. I learned so much from the experience.
The campaign was a positive, constructive event and I appreciated all of th
For many years, until approximately two years ago, the city had encouraged donations to establish benches with commemorative plaques that would help upgrade the appearance of the beach walk. Frankly, with more encouragement from the city, all of
In 2014 and early 2015, the town of Gulf Stream found itself under assault from Martin O’Boyle and Christopher O’Hare, two residents who overwhelmed the town with thousands of public records requests and dozens of lawsuits. Town Hall became virtu

Buffeted by thousands of public records requests and dozens of lawsuits, mostly from two town residents, Gulf Stream now has a full-time staff attorney to handle the workload.

Our “Village by the Sea” is being placed at risk by Delray Resolution 71-015, unanimously adopted by the City Commission in December.
The resolution commits the city to a 3,000-mile “urban Appalachian Trail” that connects 15 states along the
The good people of Boca Raton are in position to build the first homeless kibbutz in the USA. The United States’ shelter system for homeless people is a failed system. It makes nothing better, it only makes the situation worse.
It is time to
As an architect and urban planner, I would like to amplify my comments on Mizner 200, published in The Coastal Star last June. This is the proposed replacement for Mizner on the Green in Boca Raton.

Congratulations to Jane Smith on her comprehensive reporting on the plans for redevelopment of Boynton Beach’s Riverwalk Plaza.
As an original owner for 10 years at Marina Village, I found it wonderful when the new Publix opened at Sunshine Sq
I have been a resident of Palm Beach County since 1973, from West Palm Beach to Boca Raton, and in that time I have seen dozens of smaller newspapers come and go.
I would like to give you a compliment: You and your team are doing a great job
This is a pivotal time in Delray Beach history, so I want to make a few comments on the Atlantic Crossing project, which the city sent back to the Site Plan Review and Appearance Board on March 1.
I want to thank Commissioners Shelly Petrolia
Is Delray Beach sure it wants an “Urban Appalachian Trail”?
If you have ever been on the actual Appalachian Trail, you would find that the users are hardy, backpacking, great folks who live in tents/sleeping bags, dig holes for latrines, eat p
Thank you for the article published in January describing the dilemma of regulating addiction treatment services in our state. We applaud the efforts of all concerned.
As our company enters into the arena of addiction treatment for alcohol a
Picture an ink-drawn political cartoon where a pleading-eyed man rapaciously shovels piles of “taxpayer dollars” into a blazing furnace. The furnace has a fresh sign labeled “Taxpayer Mandate,” which lies above an older sign, scratched away and b
In your last issue, I read a letter submitted by Ed Harris of the National Humane Society. In it he suggests that the collection of ivory is a barbaric, horrendous and shameful hobby that should be ended.
It is well-known that his group is at
As a co-defendant in the town of Gulf Stream’s recent RICO lawsuit, I would like to set the record straight. The town initiated this action for one purpose — to censor, intimidate and silence its critics.
I have been very careful to make sure
In mid-July, Lantana town crews began working on a water problem along Dixie Highway, near the northern town limits. I understand it had to do with a nonfunctioning fire hydrant.
As a result, East View Street experienced diminished water servi
The recent article, “City/CRA shared-goals meeting takes a turn toward showdown” was more gossip-like than the journalistic quality your readers have come to expect.
First, a made-up “rift” (between city and CRA) that does not exist cannot “c
