Letters: Where is commission's courage in housing project debate?

Commission lacks courage

Hours after rejecting money for a housing project in Zephyrhills, county commissioners reversed their decision after the developer threatened to sue the county.

What's up with this?

Does the commission roll over whenever a lawsuit is threatened?

Do we not have a county attorney competent to handle such matters?

Speaking of the county attorney, according to the article, Jeff Steinsnyder appears to be giving legal advice contrary to recorded history.

This whole issue was a dead deal as of 2011 and was killed again Tuesday morning.

Then, all of a sudden, the county attorney recommends commissioners have to approve something or (shudder) they'll sue us!

Is the problem here a lack of courage? Was someone suddenly stunned with a juicy offer?

Or is this just Pasco politics as usual and we should forget about it?

Keep paragliders away from homes

To those launching and flying noisy paragliders above our homes in Meadow Pointe, Wesley Chapel, please consider how you are imposing upon our peace and quiet.

What is fun for you is very annoying to us due to the noise the motor creates.

We want to enjoy our neighborhood and homes when we are there, and your toys are loud and disruptive.

Please have some consideration.

Go out into the country somewhere and fly over pasture land, not over our homes.

Sharon Cardona, Wesley Chapel

Postal Service toy drive needs help

I saw the story regarding not many toys in the Postal Service drive for the Toys for Tots. I wanted to let someone know that this year our letter carrier did not put a notice or plastic bag in our mailbox.

Every year I hit the Black Friday sales so I can afford to get extra toys then I hold them, waiting for the mail carrier to tell me when the toy drive is. But this year, nothing. I kept telling my father it usually is the first weekend of December, but no notice came.

My father found the article about the need for toys thanks to Megan Hussey. Now I can take them to a drop in west Pasco where I live.

But here is my question: If I didn't get a notice from the letter carriers, who else didn't? Not everyone gets the newspaper, and for some people leaving a toy in the mailbox is easier than getting to a drop-off box.
