Editor's Note: Hoping to see kindness in the new year

    Basking in the glow of twinkling lights, delicious food, friends and family, I’ve been reflecting a lot lately on the meaning of gratitude.     That’s the theme at Gulf Stream School this academic year and it seems to me to be an excellent topic for study.     What is gratitude? According to online dictionaries, it is “the quality of being thankful; a readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.”     “Kindness.” That’s the word I hope will guide our coastal communities in…See More

Letter to the Editor: Sheila O’Boyle has earned respect

Posted on December 4, 2014 at 1:05pm 0 Comments

    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 knows?

    Who is Sheila O’Boyle? A wonderful woman. A kind and generous person. A wonderful mother, friend and neighbor. A person who has contributed thousands of hours and dollars to local charities and causes. A model citizen.

    Oh, Marty O’Boyle’s wife!

Posted on December 4, 2014 at 1:04pm 0 Comments

    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 sincerely thank you for this privilege.
