Letter to the Editor: Haters can’t stand that Obama won – twice

March 29th, 2015

It wasn’t long ago that Rudy Giuliani, ex-mayor of New York and failed presidential candidate, voiced doubts about whether President Obama loves America. Nearly every Republican I heard on the media denounced that statement as vicious slander. Surprising, therefore, that in a recent commentary in the Daily, one of our neighbors repeated this smear. Maybe not!

Letter to the Editor: Warren County beware: Development costs

March 26th, 2015

It is a well-known fact, backed up by studies in Loudoun and Clarke counties, that development costs money. Warren County should be prepared for this when making land-use decisions that affect residents who have to pay forward for infrastructure and services that development requires.

Letter to the Editor: No excuse for 1815 behavior in 2015

March 24th, 2015

I had to think long and carefully about your story in March 16, in which you did not just discuss the incident at University of Oklahoma, but also included a list of similar incidents at 11 other universities in 2013 and 2014.

Letter to the Editor: Kudos to the community for aiding with benefit

March 13th, 2015

Once again we are reminded how proud we should all feel living in a small, supportive community. The Hope for Roy Boyles benefit was a great success, not only by the amount of money that was raised, but by the support and encouragement that we were shown before, during, and still now after the event is over.

Letter to the Editor: A beating heart denotes life

March 7th, 2015

Who would have thought we would come to a time in America when someone would write an opinion piece in our local paper arguing that the murder of 56 million innocent unborn babies is a good thing?

Letter to the Editor: Berg to host town hall meeting

March 4th, 2015

On Saturday, Del. Mark Berg is hosting his second town hall of 2015. This is a great opportunity to hear first hand about bills that were submitted, passed out of the House and Senate and sent to the governor awaiting his approval or veto. It is also a chance for constituents to ask questions or share concerns about issues.

Letter to the Editor: A big thank you to road, safety crews

March 3rd, 2015

Each winter valley residents wait in anticipation and sometimes, trepidation, for the defining forecast: will we get snow? We have seen a lot of snow in the past couple months here in the valley, resulting in school and business closings, rescheduled events, and disrupted routines, all because snow inhibits our travel. While thankful for a few days off to spend with family, sledding and sipping hot chocolate, I am all the more thankful for cleared roadways which allow me to make it home safely, and back out to work or school.

Letter to the Editor: Faith, prayer will defeat ISIL

February 28th, 2015

Only by faith in the one true God and prayer will ISIL be defeated, but we have become an ungodly nation with no prayer in our schools, no “In God We Trust” and no crosses that may offend, no baby Jesus in a manger that may be offensive.

Letter to the Editor: Some politicians may need a new career

February 28th, 2015

The theory is that our Supreme Court justices are safe and secure for life, well paid and protected by the Secret Service so that they can concentrate their considerable knowledge and experience on what is best for our nation. Unfortunately, in the case of Citizens United, they opened a can of worms, thus permitting rich people and corporations to spend unlimited funds on political campaigns, and the justices probably had no idea the harm they started.
