Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor: I was pleased to see the article in last week’s Post about the pair trying to save the railroad. I hope these two men are successful in their effort. Three years ago when the supervisors wanted to abandon the rails, I went to all of the meetings. At the...
Dear Editor: Your article states “The ESVBA currently provides the fastest internet speed on the Shore, according to the BroadbandNow website, as stated in the application.” The BroadbandNow website does indeed say ESVBA offers speeds up to 2,000 Mbps in my area (https:// broadbandnow.com/Virginia/CapeCharles?zip=23310), but when you click on the ESVBA...
Dear Editor: As much good as the Northampton Board of Supervisors does, after looking at the online documents and listening to the voice recording, they badly fumbled a simple citizens safety request at their Sept. 14 meeting. The citizens of a waterfront neighborhood at the very end of a branch of...
Dear Editor: Of the river of discarded books that flow past our door, one of the most interesting of late has been “What Is It About Virginia,” by Guy Friddell, and in particular, his chapter “Honey In The Horse,” about the statue of General Lee on Monument Avenue in Richmond. People...
Dear Editor: Please accept my last letter on this subject. My problem with most — if not all — of the Confederate memorials is that their actual effect is to glorify and exalt a “cause” whose only apology is naked greed, and whose only descriptive title is: evil. Their actual...

Dear Editor: First, I want to thank all the teachers, administrators, and parents who have been supportive of me in my work on the school board. I am doing my best to educate myself on matters of our public school system. If I called on you for your input and...
Dear Editor: This is in response to Brian Bloedel’s letter of Sept. 10 in which he called for the removal of all Confederate memorials. Mr. Bloedel’s comments blatantly contradict one another. He chooses to reject, deny, and remove any memory or semblance of the Confederate States of America, while at the...
Dear Editor: Reading an article in the Crisfield-Somerset County Times of July 14, taken from the Bay Journal News Service, written by Jeremy Cox, I was astonished to read that Deal Island, Md., has a problem with marshes sinking into open water. How many areas that have tributaries flowing into the...
Dear Editor: I would like to respond to Mr. Joechel's op-ed piece published in the Oct. 1 issue of the Eastern Shore Post regarding the HRSD and the Town of Wachapreague. I am Fred Janci, Mayor, Town of Wachapreague, and this response has been reviewed and approved by the entire Wachapreague Town...
