Letters to the Editor

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 ...

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 ...

Letters to Editor submissions policy

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 ...
