It happens every year; the media shows video or photos of Philadelphia children running through the spray of an open fire hydrant. I’m writing to urge you not to do so because unauthorized use of hydrants is illegal and can result in injury and even death, not to mention property damage or loss.
want to thank Gloria Endres (“Resourceful times,” July 17) for her kind comments on my nostalgic letter “Reflection of the good ol’ days,” (July 10).

In response to Warren Zeith’s letter (“Civil response,” July 3), I was compelled to write “The end of innocence,” (June 26) after hearing about so many vicious crimes that have been committed by minors.
