Dear Editor:

The Minson girls, Emma and Caroline, and their brother, Patrick, would like to thank all those in the community who supported their lemonade stand including their family and friends but, especially, their wonderful neighbors on Beach 146th.

 Dear Editor:

I’ve just read the recent article, “Rockaway Memories: The 1940s and Summer’s End,” by Jean Caligiuri McKenna. But to call it an article does it a lyrical injustice. No mere assortment of facts, the author, who certainly knows how to write, beautifully narrates her memories, touched by the magic of childhood’s sentiment, of the turn of the season as summer so quickly transitioned into autumn after Labor Day during the mid-twentieth century.

Dear Editor:

As a general surgeon, I was trained to perform carotid endarterectomies, and I had the good fortune to assist an excellent vascular surgeon on several hundred such cases. In those capacities, I must say that Dr. Galvin’s column was both accurate and extremely educational. However, there was one correction/typo. HDL cholesterol was defined as “bad cholesterol,” but it is the LDL cholesterol that’s “bad,” while the HDL cholesterol is “good.”

 Dear Editor:

 We live on a barrier beach. At mean high water, our streets are at best, three to four feet above sea level. Anyone who has lived here for a while knows that we get street flooding at times of unusually high tides. NYC in its infinite wisdom is re-doing Beach Channel Drive. What I just found out, and what many residents may not know, is that they are LOWERING BCD by seven to 10 inches! The project engineer knocked on my door a few days ago to tell me this. I told her that
