The June Coastal Star cover story on the infamous Chillingworth murders took me back to my childhood, when I vividly remember reading an account of this horrific crime in “The Justice Story” of the New York Daily News. As an impressionable youngs
Thank you to Lona O’Connor for writing the piece, “Bathroom is flush with creative campaign for colon health,” about Wendy and Jamie Greenhut and their efforts to raise awareness regarding inflammatory bowel diseases.

I have followed with interest the planned development around the Mizner on the Green site in Boca Raton, where the owner, El Ad National Properties, has proposed to replace this outdated 244-unit project and reportedly seek discretionary height i
The public is rightly concerned about how much more freight traffic there will be on the Florida East Coast Railway tracks with the opening of a deeper port in Miami and the widening of the Panama Canal.

While I have always found Rich Pollack to be a very competent reporter, I take issue with his article, “Manager steps down after negative IG report.” It is misleading and doesn’t address reasons for Kathleen Weiser’s departure. Many Highland Beac
Your editorial and article on waste plastics in the ocean and on the beaches were very interesting and do not reflect well on our stewardship of the beaches and the oceans.
Many people would argue that these materials will last “forever,” howe
The December issue of The Coastal Star told a terrible tale about the acrid racial segregation that ruled in Florida throughout the 1950s. A lot of us are old enough to remember how vicious the hold of bigotry was in those years. We certainly do.
iPic’s present plan for an eight-screen cinema and a 279-space parking garage with 43,000 feet of office and 8,000 feet of retail is too much building, squeezed into too small a space, near the busy intersection of Federal Highway and Atlantic Av
Your articles are great (“Airport project can benefit wildlife as well as human life” and “Gumbo Limbo thawing out stressed turtles”), but to me they highlight the ridiculous waste of my grandchildren’s money as they are the ones that will either
Regarding your December article “Ocean Ridge closer to beach enforcement plan”:
No one has an issue with protecting property owners’ rights and that should include the dunes and sand. Since the commission is choosing to literally draw a line
“Tragedy on beach sparked change” in the December issue reminds me why The Coastal Star is such an asset to our community. Growing up in this area, I well remember this tragedy, and the ensuing events.
“All our moves and acts are aimed at ge
In the Dec. 17 Palm Beach Post it was reported that two Boynton women in the Marina Village condominium’s penthouse apartment were arrested on charges relating to illegal drugs and prostitution.
I am very disappointed in the lack of openness
In a story in December’s Coastal Star regarding building heights in downtown Delray Beach, Mayor Cary Glickstein is quoted as saying the Community Redevelopment Agency’s support of a fifth-floor bonus program can be attributed to the CRA looking
Who is Marty O’Boyle? A jerk? A bully? A white knight? He’s right, or he’s the village idiot? He’s an egomaniac having a tantrum, or he’s a genius, as the city paid him nearly $200,000?
Who is Sheila O’Boyle? A wonderful woman. A
One of the greatest privileges we enjoy as Americans is the right to vote, and thereby to choose our government. On Nov. 4, the voters of District 34 exercised this most important privilege to re-elect me as their state senator. I want to sincere
I have lived in Ocean Ridge since 1988. Those years have been eventful. Once I opened my mail box to come face to face with a large red snake about twice the diameter of my wrist. With my heart pounding out of my chest, I slammed the door shut an
I am writing in hopes that you will be interested in the other side of the story you recently printed about Manalapan police grievances.
The union was accepted in Manalapan as the result of poor management that was evident by the huge turnover
Previously suspended City Manager Louie Chapman cost the residents of Delray Beach $15,000 a month due to the current requirement of at least four commissioners voting in favor of a city manager’s termination. As of the settlement, with Chapman a
How often I see an elderly person struggling to navigate what used to be a familiar and comfortable world. Whether a trip to the bank, grocery shopping, a doctor appointment, all have become such a struggle and risk.

Twelve years ago, SAFE (Safety As Floridians Expect) led a successful effort in persuading FDOT to build bike lanes and fill in sidewalk gaps in Delray Beach.
