Letter to the Editor: Hob Nob: personal politics at its best

Editor: Last Friday evening, the Top of Virginia Chamber of Commerce held its 19th Annual Hob Nob. It was a good event attended by about 230 people. The Hob Nob has been a unique political event because it offers a venue where chamber members and their guests can discuss issues one-on-one, ...

Letter to the Editor: Safety a priority at park entrance

Letter to the Editor: The choice this fall

Letter to the Editor: Keep your word, express gratitude

Editor: Sometime around the first part of June, while having lunch at the Apple House restaurant in Linden, I met a gentleman who had sold dictionaries door to door some years ago. I said I'd love to have one and he offered to give me one. He took my name and address and sure enough, a couple ...

Letter to the Editor: We may need write-in campaign

Editor: Where can one hear simplistic questions,  ambiguous to erroneous answers, and see an event contrary to the Town Charter stating town elections are non-partisan?  Check into the Republican Party interview of Front Royal council candidates. “Shared services” means consolidate town ...

Letter to the Editor: Is column author for real?

Editor: I could not help but comment on Andy Schmookler’s article “Bob Goodlatte, worse than I thought.” Boy, Mr. Schmookler sounded like a “leftist” with his descriptions of Virginia’s Congressman Bob Goodlatte and the Repubican Party. I laughed when I read the Biblical/Christian ...

Letter to the Editor: Regarding the Kavanaugh hearing

Editor: I've been watching Judge Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing.  Since I already know his position on women's rights to reproductive care, I have just one question: where should I send the coat hanger? Marilyn Lott, Front Royal

Letter to the Editor: GOP fair signs show where party stands

Letter to the Editor: GOP hypocrisy is overwhelming

Editor: Bob Goodlatte spoke before the House Judiciary Committee in 1998, saying that it was his constitutional duty to follow the truth wherever it may lead. He added that our Founding Fathers established this nation on a fundamental idea that a nation should be governed not by the whims of ...

Letter to the Editor: Hateful rhetoric from GOP at fair

Editor: How has our county (and country) gotten to where we are today? As I worked a fair booth last week, I was shocked at the hateful rhetoric I was hearing from the Republican booth. Not knowing what "Q" meant, a friend went to investigate and discovered a very "knowledgeable" man there ...

Letter to the Editor: What Republicans believe

Editor: There's a divide between the two major parties – you don't need to be told that contrary to numerous opinion pieces written prior to this one. I'd rather write in defense of fundamental Republican beliefs in lieu of berating its opponents. The underpinning of our platform is ...

Letter to the Editor: Access concerns for Blue Ridge Shadows development

Editor: I read with interest the front-page article "Cedar Valley Entrance Concerns Voiced" in the Aug. 24 issue of the Northern Virginia Daily. Large housing developments like Cedar Valley and Blue Ridge Shadows in Warren County that are dependent on one way in/one way out and no alternate ...

Letter to the Editor: Stop Trump at the polls

Editor: I have only hated two people in my life. The first was Adolph Hitler. I was 9 years old when World War II started. I would go to a local theater and they would show a newsreel called "News of the Day." That is how I kept up on news of the war. I saw pictures of dead bodies of Jews ...

Letter to the Editor: There’s only one way to get a Congress that will act

Editor: Jennifer Lewis and Tim Kaine will work for all of us.  Sen. Kaine has an admirable and well-documented legislative and personal history. Jennifer Lewis will bring principled, open and intelligent representation to us in the 6th Congressional District. Jennifer has spent decades ...

Letter to the Editor: Does exceptionalism include immigrant kids?

Editor: In his recent letter to the editor, Leroy Donald touts the "cultural and economical exceptionalism that America has proven to the world." I must question whether the exceptionalism to which he refers includes our treatment of immigrant children at our southern border. Perhaps he refers ...

Letter to the Editor: Goodlatte has had a positive impact on district

Editor: As a resident of the 6th District, I feel it is my obligation to regard the work that Congressman Bob Goodlatte has accomplished in serving the people of the district throughout the years of his service in Congress. Bob Goodlatte's passion for the 6th District and its residents is ...

Letter to the Editor: Trump is calling out shills of far left

Editor: Your editorial of Aug. 16, "Mr. Trump, end the rhetoric," is understandable. In my view, your paper does its best to present both sides of the issues in your editorials, guest columns and news stories. It is too bad that Mr. Trump's rhetoric is perceived as an attack on all media. ...

Letter to the Editor: Scanner encryption raises concerns

Editor: Although, I am not a scanner listener, I am concerned and disturbed by Warren County Sheriff Daniel McEathron and Front Royal Chief of Police Kahle Magalis' decision to encrypt all local police communications, citing safety as the primary reason. Chief Magalis states that they are all ...
