Letters to the Editor

Letter to the Editor: Taxpayers also deserve respect

Editor: Recently Shenandoah County had two events juxtaposed that I think are worth highlighting. One event was National Teacher Appreciation week. I suspect that we can all remember some great teachers. Two years ago, I visited my old elementary school and high school. Yes, they are still ...

Letter to the Editor: Why repeat the info?

Editor: Someone, please explain to me why: when your vehicle has high mileage, you get a discount on your taxes. But once you get the discount, you must notify the county every year after that before Feb.  1  in order to get the discount each year. I don't know about you, but common sense ...

Letter to the Editor: Pompeo not worthy of job

Editor: Mike Pompeo is the 70th secretary of state in American history. Is he a worthy successor to Thomas Jefferson, the first secretary of state, or James Madison, or Gen.  George C. Marshall, the 50th – and also winner of the Nobel Peace Prize? No, he is not. Mr. Pompeo was appointed ...

Letter to the Editor: Why I subscribe to Daily

Editor: I moved from Shenandoah County to the Virginia Mennonite Retirement Community in Harrisonburg two years ago. I thought I should continue to subscribe to the Northern Virginia Daily because I liked its balanced approach to national and local news and it helped me keep up with ...

Letter to the Editor: Shop at small businesses

Editor: On behalf of the Shenandoah County Chamber of Commerce, I joined our many small businesses in Shenandoah County in celebrating Small Business Week last week. This week of celebration and recognition was led by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). According to the SBA, more ...

Letter to the Editor: Old woman cares about town

Editor: Once again I talked to the old woman who is concerned about Strasburg, her hometown. She tells me things I’d like to share with you. She said: “Did you read the Northern Virginia Daily Thursday, April 12. Why would someone complain about the sign in that window?” Oh, yes the ...

Letter to the Editor: Shields’ column is petty

Editor: I thought the Mark Shields article, “It's called the Democratic Party,” was somewhat petty. Really? Is this what we waste space in the newspaper to write about? Nitpicking about the name “Democrat” vs. “Member of the “Democratic Party” seems like a silly complaint. In ...

Letter to the Editor: We have work to do

Editor: Here's what we know about our president. He says his philosophy of life is revenge. He called those who turned the other cheek fools or idiots. He is racist through and through. He has been found guilty by the courts of discrimination against nonwhites in housing and employment. He is ...

Letter to the Editor: Center’s closing end of an era

Editor: After steadfastly serving this community for nearly 70 years, Valley Health Warren Memorial Hospital’s Women’s Care Center welcomed its last patient this week. The decision to transition labor and delivery services from Warren to Winchester Medical Center was more than just ...

Letter to the Editor: Say ‘no’ to King Amendment

Editor: The King Amendment is back and being considered as part of the Farm Bill. I oppose this Amendment and am urging Bob Goodlatte and anyone who will listen to oppose this amendment. There is such an array of reasons that almost everyone can agree it shouldn't be approved.This is why ...

Letter to the editor: A gracious thank you

Editor: On Feb. 13, we had a fire in our home in Woodstock. The local fire company was the initial responder but due to the nature of the fire the response quickly escalated. County EMS and at least eight companies from the area came to check on us and help to save our home. We would like to ...

Letter to the Editor: Stop kicking can down the road

Editor: It is time to stop "kicking the can down the road" over budget issues. There are many issues about what is needed for Shenandoah County. First, we must make the county competitive for economic development. Quality education that is available for personnel and families of any ...

Letter to the Editor: Congratulations to our vineyards

Editor: On behalf of the Shenandoah County Chamber of Commerce, I congratulate the vineyards mentioned in your March 21st article for awards granted as part of the 2018 Virginia Governor's Cup Awards. Wine produced from grapes grown in Shenandoah County has been recognized as outstanding for ...

Letter to the Editor: Quotes left out of news story

Editor: The April 4 Board of Supervisors public hearing on the tax rate and budget was one of the most important meetings of the year. I was disappointed that the brief article about the hearing was not published in print until April 9, and included no quotes from the many speakers. My ...

Letter to the Editor: School funding no laughing matter

Editor: How disappointing it was to read that Mr. Richard Walker is continuing what I hoped was an outgoing trend of disrespect for our educational professionals. The challenges our schools are faced with are certainly no laughing matter. Belittling the public comments of a constituent in a ...

Letter to the Editor: Parking lot potholes need to be fixed

Editor: Have you been to Woodstock Square shopping center lately?  If you have, you probably noticed the large potholes all over the parking lot. Maybe you have even had the misfortune to hit one! They are pretty hard to miss when they are everywhere. Recently I contacted the Woodstock ...

Letter to the Editor: Melania may be sending a message

Editor: My appreciation for Melania Trump has increased over time. As most people probably know, Melania has taken on the issue of cyber-bullying as a focus for her role as first lady. It’s an important issue, one that she seems to genuinely care about. But it seems that every liberal ...

Letter to the Editor: Reign in Trump

Editor: We are in perilous times requiring bold courageous actions on the part of U.S. Rep. Barbara Comstock and U.S. Senators Tim Kaine and Mark R. Warner. We must protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller at all costs. Failing to do so opens the door wide for the decline of our democracy and ...

Letter to the Editor: Goodlatte’s predictable response

Editor: Representative Goodlatte recently supported the firing of yet another FBI official on questionable grounds. How very convenient that Rep. Goodlatte's response echoes the Trump administration so closely. It must be a relief not to have to question his party's leader. As head of the ...

Letter to the Editor: Our president is out of control

Editor: For our president of the United States to call and congratulate Vladimir Putin for winning a sham election is indefensible. How on earth can the president of the United States abandon American values in such a call? In addition, he did not even mention the situation in England let ...
