Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor:  The speeding on Pennsylvania Avenue in Onley during daytime hours is ongoing, serious, and a particular danger to walkers.  We have lodged numerous complaints at Onley Town Council meetings, to no avail. Both our present and past chiefs of police admitted in meetings that the speeding is a problem.  Allow...
Dear Editor: We have all heard the refrain that the Eastern Shore of Virginia is often “50 years behind the times,” which is an overstatement but not necessarily all that bad in the opinion of many who call the ESVA home. Indeed, lagging behind the over-populated, dense, highly taxed, and...
Dear Editor: The Onley Town Council met Dec. 27 to hold a public hearing on the proposed changes to the town charter. I checked the Onley town website to get a copy of the proposed changes and found that copies were only available at the town office. The Onley town office is...

Dear Editor:  The Northampton County Salvation Army and the Department of Social Services greatly appreciates the many, many gifts that our community provided to families in Northampton County.  This year Salvation Army volunteers rang bells at the Food Lions in Exmore and Cape Charles, and the CBBT Welcome Center. We thank...
Dear Editor:  In “Eggs and Issues Takes Political Pulse” (Dec. 10 issue), Del. Robert Bloxom explained, inadvertently, what is wrong with government at all levels.  He explained about half of the grocery tax, currently 2.5%, benefits localities. No doubt these political deals are done to get support, but each government should...
Dear Editor: One can search to see how your donation will be spent, but, also, whether or not your info will be shared with other charities or organizations. You can request that it not be shared. I used to donate through Dining For Women to local or global causes, but COVID-19...
