Calling For Resignation

Dear Editor, My husband and I are so happy that someone finally put Peter Sammon in his place. He and his wife are two of the most sarcastic people we have ever come across in Rockaway. More...

Rockaway Memories

Dear Editor, The Ramones' popular hit song "Rockaway Beach" was written by Dee Dee Ramone, who spent an ample amount of time at the Queens beach. Aside from being a phenomenal song, it is also about the place where I grew up. More...

Adopting Pets

Dear Editor, I would like to thank The Wave and Ms. Ash Mills for introducing my family to our dog Rocky five years ago. Rocky died on August 5. He was a great dog—loving, fun, protective, and great with all the children on our block. More...

Alert And Cautious Bus Drivers

Obama's Healthcare Reform

Dear Editor, It is deplorable, the degree to which the major media has been derelict in its duty to report on what may be the greatest socio-economic shift this nation will face in our lifetime. More...

Underage Drinking

Dear Editor, I would like to know why underage drinking is overlooked so massively in the Rockaway area. More...

Men Don't Get It
