The Gold and Silver Mine: Lowly cent costs a fortune to mint The Gold and Silver Mine: Lowly cent costs a fortune to mint This week’s column was intended to be me putting in my 2 cents worth of opinion about the lowly 1 cent coin, but a timely article in the Wall Street Journal added some additional statistics, so I have incorporated them here. An interesting note, the author of that WSJ article interchanged the terms cent and penny, even though the American coin is a “cent,” one-one hundredth of a dollar, not a penny, which is a British monetary unit.

Letter: Appalled by recent letter

To the editor:

It was most disheartening to read Rita D’Armi’s recent letter to the editor questioning the integrity of honest, hardworking, caring citizens of our island, and their right to be heard.
