Your carrier is special
Editor: Many of us take for granted every day that there is a paper waiting at our doorstep for us to read with our morning cup of coffee. Many on Anastasia Island don’t realize that their copy of The Record was delivered by a special lady. Her name is Susan Starling and she has been delivering papers for over 31 years. In all that time she has taken only 11 days off … quite a record (pun intended). Like the mailman, she delivers in all kinds of weather, and this past week must have been one of the worst. A big thank you, Susan for a job well done.
Tis good for the soul
Editor: Boy, is Mr. Lescroart upset with Bob Tis. As a fan of Mr. Tis’ words, I see them as food for my soul each week. My guess is that Mr. Lescroat is so upset because he has no soul. Just a guess…
A stinky Zinke plan
Editor: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
The article in the Jan. 10 The Record regarding no drilling off Florida’s coast failed to mention that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke said seismic testing would still be allowed, but there would be no new oil drilling or platforms.
Really? If there is to be no oil drilling or platforms, why is seismic testing to be allowed?
It doesn’t make sense. Sen. Bill Nelson doesn’t believe it either. According to Nelson, “this is a political stunt orchestrated by the Trump administration to help Rick Scott, who has wanted to drill off Florida’s coast his entire career.
We shouldn’t be playing politics with the future of Florida.”
It is way too soon to get excited about Rick Scott’s latest ploy as he prepares for a Senate run.
We must be prepared to stand firm yet again.
