Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor: The Northampton County Department of Social Services would like to recognize our 2019 volunteers, donors from the many civic organizations, local churches, and the community at whole for another extremely successful Toys for Tots/Angel Tree. Special thanks to Richard Sterrett of Northampton County Salvation Army, the Salvation Army...
Dear Editor: Is there a dire need for the Hampton Roads Sanitation District’s expensive sewer pipeline plan? Priorities for the Eastern Shore of Virginia just might be cell phone service that is reliable and affordable, as well as electronics-protective, surge-free electricity! Is raw sewage devastating our aquaculture industry? Are our current...
Dear Editor: Rumors abounded around the Hernandez campaign; that he was from California and sent here by a wealthy  “environmentalist, socialist.” He, in fact, was born and raised in Hampton Roads, won a scholarship to William and Mary, studied at Oxford and attended law school in California.

Dear Editor: In light of the “2nd Amendment sanctuary cities” movement, a few observations from what I hope is the sensible center. Why would any law-abiding responsible gun owner or would-be owner feel impacted by universal background checks? The 2nd amendment starts with the words “a well-regulated militia.” Shouldn’t that imply...
