Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor: If you look at Trump’s life and what he stood for in the past everyone liked him including most of the Democrats. He often donated to their election campaigns and everything was fine until that day he came down the escalator in 2015 and announced that he was...
Dear Editor: I would like to extend my gratitude and appreciation for all who helped bring the MLK Jr. Community Unity Day Celebration to WESR-FM. It was a wonderful hour with so many local voices contributing to the message of Unity here on the Shore. I know from personal experience how it...
Dear Editor: I submitted the following letter to the Accomack County School Board for the Jan. 19, 2021, meeting. Dear Board Members: I spoke at the Dec. 15, 2020, meeting in favor of high school sports. I presented data from a University of Wisconsin study that concluded there is low risk...
