Cover art questioned

To the Editor: With almost 30 out of the 68 profiled businesses with women as sole-owners or quoted directors, your cover illustration shows only male images. In 2014. Really? Lynne Gronefeld Creve Coeur Email this page

In favor of the Lafayette greenhouse

To the Editor:  Speaking as a soon-to-be senior at Lafayette this fall, I approve of any plans to institute a greenhouse. Such a resource would be fully utilized to enrich the entire Lafayette community. I, myself, have learned many skills and gained experience in various areas via practical arts courses offered at Lafayette. I would appreciate the availability of even ...

Responding to ‘Border Madness’

To the Editor: Here he goes again. Thomas Sowell in “Bordering on Madness” (West Newsmagazine, July 30) bemoans our lack of immigration policy and yet Republicans have refused to bring immigration reform to the table. They have blocked every effort to do so. President Obama has greatly increased border security but it takes money and the House has refused again ...

Regarding ‘Applauding Gov. Perry’

To the Editor: The border madness is without a doubt a national disgrace. It is a moral failure that belies belief!! Children sent by desperate parents hundreds of miles alone with no food, money or an adult. We have to make some hard choices, painful as they might be. However Mr. Stoeffler’s solution (“Letters to the Editor,” West Newsmagazine, July ...

Regarding Ellisville development

To the Editor: Wonder how much money it would take to entice enough businesses, and subsidize them if necessary, to revitalize the core business district of Ellisville? I am guessing that $10 million would be only a drop in the bucket. We now are treated to the election celebration of  how “We stuck it to Walmart.” We denied those rich ...

Thomas Sowell – Cease the Cease-Fires

Many years ago, on my first trip around the world, I was struck by how the children in the Middle East — Arab and Israeli alike — were among the nicest looking little children I had seen anywhere. It was painful to think that they were going to grow up killing each other. But that is exactly what happened. It ...

Voices from newsmagazinenetwork.com

In reply to “ Enacting Article V of the U.S. Constitution,” Letters to the Editor, West Newsmagazine, July 9, Bill Walker wrote: “Mr. Mareing gives excellent reasons to hold a convention. However, his information is incorrect. For example he suggests only a few states have filed applications for a convention call by Congress. You can read the 746 applications from ...

Responding to “Ellisville Development”

To the Editor:  I was not surprised by the response about the Ellisville development and Walmart, by Mary Dust and apparently every other Ellisville resident (Letter to the Editor, West Newsmagazine, July 23). But I must correct the misconceptions about the TIF. Walmart was not going to receive a dime of the TIF. I would like to enlighten the anti-Walmart ...

Dog days of summer

To the Editor: If you have covered this, it probably still bears repeating. Dogs cannot be left in cars in warm weather. Recently I parked next to a black SUV with a dog left in it while the owners ate breakfast. Every time I go to Manchester Walmart I find at least one dog in a car. People in West ...
