Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor: I just wanted to say there are some really good people left in the world and we met one of them recently on our ride through Accomack County. We suffered a flat tire near Keller in the rainstorm and a Mr. Marshall Parks, from Parksley, stopped to help us. He...
Dear Editor: As a teenager and an adult, I have lived a life associated with the military. I learned a lot about integrity, honesty, and ethics. After 30-plus years in the Navy, I could not think of a better career that I can look back at for insights into our...
Dear Editor: During this season of graduations and other school celebrations, I would like to thank Northampton County Public Schools for the great job they did with our two sons, Forest and Liam. From Kiptopeke Elementary to Northampton High, they had teachers, coaches, staff, and administrators encourage them, nurture them, and...

Dear Editor: Some of your readers may have heard of the Little Farm Rescue and Sanctuary in Machipongo, but they may not know of the wonderful things that happen there. It was just a year ago that the founders of the rescue, Katie and Les Cook, moved their family along with...
Dear Editor: The April 19 school board meeting failed to address several questions that those of us who support preservation and restoration came to ask. The only “conversation” was between school board member Paul Bull, demolition proponent, and Donald Booth, of DJG engineering and planning firm, of Williamsburg. The two men...
