Sudbury letters: Laurentian needs foundation to secure donations, and other thoughts
The board of governors for a university or college has similar responsibilities to a board of directors in a not-for-profit corporation. The board is responsible to manage the organization efficiently and effectively within the organization’s operating budgets.
Sudbury letter: City council far too content to pass on tax and user fee increases (updated)
The headline in The Star indicating that Sudbury councillors are facing a $14 million dilemma is misleading. Sudbury is facing a $620 million dilemma and they aren’t willing or have the guts to examine what makes up this grossly inflated figure. They can’t even agree to freezing their bloated salaries to save $500,000 while other people or businesses are losing their livelihoods.

Sudbury letter: Facility dog an unneeded distraction
It is an oxymoron to have emergency services called a community safety department when they have allowed, and in some cases driven, the number of volunteers to a level where the city is now short by 100 volunteers, equivalent to five volunteer stations, and our fire stations are allowed to continually deteriorate from lack of maintenance. That does not indicate community safety as any part of the mandate implied by the name.
Letter: Winter carnival would be a good thing for Greater Sudbury
I have a cold dream. In my dream, we have a winter carnival in the city at our beautiful Bell Park. There are many different functions to participate in, for all ages. There are snowman-building competitions for different ages, and ice sculptures. There are horse-drawn sleigh rides at the park, ice skating on the path on the lake, and ice skating races for the kids, with different heats, depending on what grade the kids are in. There is cross-country skiing on the lake and racing in different heats for the kids. There is a snowmobile poker run, and a three-man ball hockey tournament, as well as hockey tournaments and curling tournaments at the local arenas.
Sudbury letter: Sudbury needs what the Kingsway Entertainment District can bring
To city councillors and critics of the KED: I am writing to you concerning the Kingsway Entertainment District. I am so tired of hearing you spending our money on renewing something old downtown (the existing Sudbury Arena).
Sudbury letter: Keeping area downtown would make area safer
Kudos to letter writer Richard Anderson for his excellent views on why the new arena should stay downtown (‘To succeed, new arena must be downtown,’ Feb. 10), and to architect Tim James and his ProjectNow team for their efforts devoted to the same purpose.
