Letter to the Editor: Extraordinary proof has not been given

November 21st, 2014

I have no doubt about the sincerity of letter writer Kitty Martz’s beliefs but she cannot use circular logic by quoting the Bible to prove it is inspired by God. There is no credible evidence that backs that claim. To be valid, such extraordinary claims must be backed by extraordinary proof and extraordinary proof has not been given. If such proof does ever come to light backed by plausible scientific explanations, I will be more than happy to change my opinion on the matter of gay marriage. Until then, one must not use the Bible to support legislation to oppose the right of people to marry the one they love.

Letter to the Editor: Kudos to town workers in Front Royal

October 31st, 2014

I would like to compliment the town of Front Royal work force for the fine job that they do — especially the beautification department. From the hanging flower baskets in the spring, summer and fall to the beautiful holiday decorations in the winter.

Letter to the Editor: Kmart’s closure and a bit of grandstanding

October 28th, 2014

The ongoing demise of Sears Holding Corp. and recent announcement that the Front Royal Kmart will be closed seems to have given the Town Council and those wishing to retain their seats an opportunity to do a little bit of “grandstanding.” Certainly a letter to the organization’s CEO can’t hurt, but why beg to postpone the inevitable?
