Kudos to City Manager Sammy Rich and a quorum of City Commissioners. When residents of Between the Rivers expressed concern over recent car break-ins, the administration of Rome quickly arranged a “listening meeting” with the citizens. They gave every person who wished a chance to speak alon…

Good morning, I thank you for the opportunity to comment on Friday’s Sun Sentinel editorial regarding recent political activities along our Southern border.

I want to express my appreciation to the administration, faculty and staff at Cave Spring Elementary School for a most enjoyable Pinto Bean Luncheon on March 23. The smiles and warm greetings of Elizabeth, Danny, Allan and so many others made us feel more than welcome. In fact they made us t…
