Letters to the Editor

Letter to the Editor: National Night Out

Editor: On Aug. 7, the Lord Fairfax Community College Police Department hosted its first National Night Out in partnership with the police departments of Middletown and Stephens City. The southern end of Frederick County has not had its own event, so this gave all of us who live in the region ...

Letter to the Editor: Mount Jackson business district must remain commercial

Editor: At the Mount Jackson Town Council meeting on July 7, the developer of 5935 King St., Todd Holtzman, was granted special approval to convert two of three street-level commercial spaces into apartments. The intent of the B-1 historic downtown district is the economic and social ...

Letter to the Editor: Let’s not forget, families are still separated!

Editor: While President Trump’s policy of separating families at the border has since been abandoned – he signed an executive order reversing this policy after international outcry demanded families be kept together—we haven’t been stressing the fact that hundreds of immigrant children ...

Letter to the Editor: The choice is clear

Editor: I am writing this letter on behalf of Ben Cline, who is running for Virginia's 6th Congressional District. I have known Ben for many years, and he is a stand-up guy who has been a leader in the House of Delegates for many years. Ben ran the House of Delegates Conservative Caucus and ...

Letter to the Editor: Transparency in government needed

Editor: As a nation, we see that transparency in government is almost nonexistent. Many politicians claim to be transparent in their actions, but recent events prove otherwise. Regardless of political party, we must demand accountability from our elected officials. We must have each person we ...

Letter to the Editor: Let’s have a Trumpless news day

Editor: As we are all painfully aware, we are being bombarded in the news media by the word "Trump." Trump did this; Trump did that.  Trump twittered. Trump, Trump, Trump! I know he is the president of the United States and thus makes news, but must we be subjected to the word Trump ad ...

Letter to the Editor: Here’s why Christians are loyal to Trump

Editor: I would like to answer a question that was asked recently in a letter to the editor: “How can Christians be loyal to Trump?” I believe it is because he is loyal to so many things that are very important to the great majority of Christians – life, love for America, the ...

Letter to the Editor: Having no code hurts town’s renters

Editor: The Front Royal Town Council voted down the proposed Property Maintenance Code months ago because of the training and employment costs to have an inspector. The existence of other high-dollar projects was also an alleged deterrent to funding the Property Maintenance Code. The estimated ...

Letter to the Editor: We have nowhere to go but up

Editor: During America's history we have, from time to time, had less-than-brilliant occupants at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.  We have also had scandals, whether great or small.  But in general the staff surrounding the president has done its best to prop up the president, and to cover up his ...

Letter to the Editor: How can Christians be loyal to Trump?

Editor: It seems rather perplexing to me how the conservative Christian – or the liberal Christian – or any Christian - can feel any loyalty or connection to the spoiled child who currently lives in the White House. It seems perplexing because this spoiled child represents EVERYTHING ...

Letter to the Editor: Do we really want a dictator?

Editor: So Donald Trump thinks a president should be above the law: No investigation, and no prosecution, while in office. He also thinks the Chinese are pretty smart to have elected a "president for life." He also thinks we ought to "try it sometime." What do we call a ruler who is there ...

Letter to Editor: The cruelty of Donald Trump

Editor: In November of last year, a 39-year-old mother and her 6-yea-old daughter arrived in the United States after fleeing the Democratic Republic of the Congo. A few days later immigration officials transferred the child to a Chicago facility and locked up the mother in San Diego. At a ...

Letter to the Editor: An apology for disgraceful actions

Editor: I would like to send my sincere apology to the entire Hispanic/Latino community of the Northern Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and to the many descendants of immigrants who have come to America – Native Americans included. I want to apologize for the disgraceful actions taken by Mr. ...

Letter to the Editor: School officials should apologize

Editor: The column by Leonard Pitts on June 6, "Petaluma High learns censorship doesn't work" – has been nagging me. "Freedom of Speech" is the first article in our Bill of Rights but seems the easiest to be impinged or outright ignored.  It troubles me (and I'm sure it troubles others) ...

Letter to the Editor: What is Trump hiding?

Editor: Back around the 1880s another Republican president of the United States and his associates decided to impose large tariffs on imported goods. The result was a depression, and that is what Trump is going to bring about here in the 21st century with his idiotic tariffs. Ask yourself: ...

Letter to the Editor: A rebuttal to Scripture quote

Editor: If Attorney General Jeff Sessions is going to quote Scripture, i.e. Romans 13, to support the separation of immigrant families at our borders, then I will issue a rebuttal from a more relevant passage.  King Herod was in power in Jerusalem at the time of the birth of Jesus in ...

Letter to the Editor: The gift that keeps on giving

Editor: Most obvious conclusions of President Trump's first 18 months in office: 1) He is a determined effective leader and most concerned about what is best for America, 2) He is challenged by an opposition resistance movement determined to undermine his decisions and sabotage his presidency ...

Letter to the Editor: County should consider these benchmarks

Editor: Our Shenandoah County Board of Supervisors was elected primarily on a call for economic and educational development. However, we have not heard real plans for change or how it will be measured. This is not a novice board – where has the economic development been over the last 30 ...

Letter to the Editor: Kudos to Woodstock officials

Editor: My husband and I moved from Pennsylvania to the Woodstock area some 20 years ago. Through the years, we have watched the appearance of Woodstock immensely improve. Today, we are so proud to take out-of-town visitors on a tour of our historic town with its beautiful landscaping, ...

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 ...
