Letters to the Editor

Letter to the Editor: Get to know Democratic candidate

Editor: On Tuesday, Democrats in our 6th Congressional District nominated a young woman who deserves the serious consideration of all Virginians interested in a better future. She is Jennifer Lewis from Waynesboro. Jennifer grew up on a family farm and understands the importance of ...

Letter to the Editor: Stormy vs. Justify?

Editor: Why did we have to look at a large color picture of Stormy Daniels and that mayor somewhere in Hollywood, California, and you all did not have a picture of Justify after winning the Preakness horse race two weeks ago? I think you have your priorities mixed up for sure. Enough ...

Letter to the Editor: Kudos to Woodstock town employees

Editor: Thanks to the Woodstock employees for the installation of the unique LOVE sign on Route 11 in Woodstock. I understand it was designed and constructed by the town employees, who did a fantastic job with this project. It is unique to Woodstock and will be a conversation piece for ...

Letter to the Editor: Put new income to good use

Editor: The Woodstock Town Council made a good monetary move by increasing the meals tax by 20 percent. Most of the increase will come from tourists stopping to grab a bite at "Hamburger Alley." Hopefully, some of this new income will be put to use to fix the numerous, 39 at last count, sewer ...

Letter to the Editor: Kudos to Goodlatte

Editor: Recently, the sugar cartels won in their latest attempt to enrich themselves at the cost of the American consumer. Fortunately, not every member of Congress acted like a puppet!  Congressman Bob Goodlatte voted for reform and continues to be hero for sugar reform.  He is a stalwart ...

Letter to the Editor: A positive choice

Editor: Headlines in a recent Northern Virginia Daily tell us that Republicans vying for the 6th Congressional District nomination resorted to threats and personal attacks. This is familiar to many who have engaged in cross party discussions in recent years. What should be a rational ...

Letter to the Editor: Four Democrats in race for Goodlatte’s seat

Editor: On June 12 there will be a primary election to select the Democratic Party candidate for the 6th Congressional District, Bob Goodlatte's old seat (he is retiring this year). Four very good candidates will be on the ballot, but I would like to mention one in particular, Peter Volosin. ...

Letter to the Editor: The race for Kaine’s seat

Editor: Contemplating the race to beat Sen. Kaine this November, I realize simply having an "R" next to your name gives you no claim to Virginia's seat in the U.S. Senate. It's been nearly 18 months since the election of our president, Donald Trump; yet, obstruction to the agenda voters ...

We welcome letters and opinion essays that are well written. Letters must be 350 or fewer words and must not include website addresses, phone numbers or physical addresses, or material pulled from another source without attribution. Letters must not include personal attacks, hate language or ...

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 ...
