Dear Editor:

While stuck at home during the pandemic, I developed a bad habit. I watch the ABC evening local and national news. Conservatives like the late Rush Limbaugh have long accused the mainstream media of being biased toward the left. I often hear the ABC reporters inject editorializing comments like "outrageous," and recognizing this bias, I ignore it. But this past Monday evening, ABC crossed the line, in my opinion. They led with a story that the Johnson & Johnson Covid vaccine may be linked with 100 cases of Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) in those who received the J&J vaccine. That is, 100 cases out of 13,000,000 vaccines given. The CDC is investigating the cases as possibly linked to the vaccination, but even if there

 

 Dear Editor:

Projects that will make our community more resilient to storms and more accessible to the disabled are vital, but their planning must be an inclusive process with input from all those affected. The concrete path and ramps proposed by the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers (USACE) must be reconsidered.

It is an outrage that The Rockaway Civic Association, Belle Harbor Property Owners Association and the Neponsit Property Owners Association were excluded from the foundational steps of

On July 4th, I went to the end of the boardwalk on Beach 126th St, expecting to see some simple rockets and fireworks—only to be treated to more than two hours of the most beautiful and complex fireworks coming from the beach—from clusters of people, who must have chipped in quite a bit of money to put on a display of fireworks the likes of which I've never before experienced.

In my mind it singled out that, yes, Covid has almost been vanquished—and, also, yes, we are living in a

Dear Editor:

What are we, chopped liver?!  When will our beloved Seaside Library reopen to the public? Children, adults, students; all miss its services. This vital Queens connection should be used for more than the occasional election. All presently serving elected Democratic politicians in this Queens District: Get on board and make this happen!

I can't be the only avid reader, taxpayer and voter in the district, can I?

Dear Editor:

I along with many any others enjoy your Boyleing Points and the whole paper and still recall the uphill battle you had in the early days. You have the perfect blend ... a great staff and friend support. Wishing you many, many more happy days ahead. Go and continue to do great things!

Dear Editor:

On the evening of June 23, a very disturbing incident occurred on Beach 137 St. My sister and I and our two dogs were attacked by an unfit neighbor's known vicious pit bull, who has attacked others before, only three houses away from home. My sister was bitten on the face, and I sprained my wrist trying to save our dogs. We both had to go to the ER and our dogs needed emergency vet care.

Many thanks to the courageous neighbors and our husbands who were able to force the pitbull
