Dear Editor:

I am Teagan O’Rourke, the goalie for the SFDS 5th grade girls soccer team. I am writing you to talk about the recent article with the title 5th Grade SFDS Champions! The first thing I want to say is thank you for putting my team’s picture in The Times. But there is one thing that I wanted to bring to your attention. I do not completely understand why the boys’ season was mentioned, but not the girls. The boys team got a shout out for the win and a shutout game, but there was no acknowledgment of the girls’ season.

I would have liked to have seen an acknowledgment of my team’s undefeated season, 6-0-2. The girls also had a shutout championship game.  We won 3-0 against Blessed Trinity.  It would have been nice to see a more

I commend Susan Lavin for all she does for our community. She worked quietly for the libraries, even through the early stages of this pandemic, tirelessly for the elders' needs, and furthering educational options throughout Queens and Brooklyn.

My Father, Emil R. Lucev, Sr. (Rockaway's Historian) and Lew Simon were long time buddies. They shared a lot of the same political views and much different ones. They both had one common passion, the LOVE for the entire Rockaway Peninsula. When my father passed away, Lew did not hesitate to write up a nice memorial for my Dad. RIP Lew and my condolences to his family.

If you follow sports, I’m sure you have scratched your head a few times in the past few years

 Dear Editor:

I propose that our local elected officials submit to the NYC city council, a bill to rename a main Rockaway thoroughfare after our most dedicated Rockaway advocate, Lew Simon. Thank You.

 Dear Editor:

Our community has suffered through enough. We have been neglected by our city and state Governments for far too long. Something as simple as available and reliable transportation is not available for our community. Our community is already a ‘transportation desert’ and it will get worse, unless we act. According to Census ACS data 52% of Queens’ commuters travel via the MTA. That means the majority of our borough, especially many residents of our community, rely on unreliable

 Dear Editor:

Dr. Galvin (Ask The Doc, 11/4/21) gave a precise and concise discussion of the increasing prevalence of pancreatic cancer.
