Letter to the Editor: Teachers are not disposable commodities

In seeking to respond to Supervisor Cindy Bailey's April 12 letter to the edito, "Teachers Don't Leave Because of Money," I am reminded of the conundrum of the mosquito in the nudist colony: I know what to do; I just don't know where to start.

Letter to the Editor: Stop bashing our children's teachers

We now have Sunday hunting along with open season on school teachers and Shenandoah County employees it seems.

Letter to the Editor: It's time to add funds to the school system

In regards to Saturday's letter, "Teachers don't leave because of money" -- they leave because inadequate compensation is the very last straw. As a county, we want good jobs for our citizens. We should be praising a job that rewards education and provides living wages and benefits. We should be looking for businesses and industries that will provide similar excellent jobs. Let's emotionally support all our citizens instead of tearing each other down.

Although difficult to imagine the end result of this capitulation from the left, I'm sure it will be a far cry from freedom.

Letter to the Editor: Make last wishes known through advance directive

Health care surveys routinely show that given the choice most people would prefer to spend their final days at home. Yet that choice, and others critical to your own healthcare decisions, are often taken away when a person's last wishes are not documented and expressed to family, loved ones, and physicians.

Letter to the Editor: Encourage others to remember days gone by

One day in November 2010, I went to visit my 94½-year-old brother. He mentioned an event that had occurred in July 1945 when he visited me in Manila. I wasn't interested because it was old. That was the only conversation we had.

Letter to the Editor: I say 'no' to Purchase Development Rights

The Virginia State Conservation Easement program began as an excellent way to "save the farm" of struggling land rich, cash poor farmers. I strongly believe in landowner/farmer decisions to place a conservation easement on his property.

Letter to the Editor: We need to change Virginia's election laws

Five justices on our Supreme Court just made it possible for those with the most money to have the most say in all of our elections -- federal, state and local.
