Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor: I, among many others, especially our senior citizens, am constantly receiving unsolicited telephone calls, sometimes on an hourly basis. This practice is annoying, if not harassing. For example, my sister recently received a call showing our deceased mother’s name as the caller and displaying her personal phone number. On March...
Dear Editor: It occurs to me that, assuming we have access to a vehicle, we can get out for a drive in the beautiful country. I find, however, all the “ditch garbage” depresses me more. What is it? Accidents happen when something flies out the window, but with the best convenience...
Dear Editor: The General Assembly has completed its session and once again the citizens of the Eastern Shore were well represented. There was the usual plethora of bills and issues as well as the push and pull for budget dollars. As always, Sen. Lewis and Del. Bloxom fought for our teachers,...
Dear Editor: I would like to address recent letters to the editor regarding the unsolicited proposals Cape Charles has received that seek to potentially acquire the town’s water and wastewater utilities. First, I would like to thank the writer for expressing a genuine interest; and second, to apologize for not...

In my statement read into the record before this deliberation, I...
Dear Editor: I listened recently to the “Wi-Fi Update” provided by Accomack County Administrator Mike Mason at the January Board of Supervisors meeting. The responsiveness of local entities has been significant in addressing expansion of internet services into areas of high concentrations of school children, such as in the three recently targeted...
Dear Editor: The cartoon in the Feb. 5 edition implied something that’s just not true — that we can act differently once we’ve been vaccinated. Unfortunately, we can’t let our guard down yet. According to Jon Richardson, chief operating officer for the Eastern Shore Health District, “Receiving the vaccine for COVID-19...
Dear Editor: Toward the end of the Feb. 12 article on Page 7 (“CVS Begins Vaccination Rollout, Shore Locations Not Yet Included”), it says to contact your physician’s office for the vaccination. What if the emergency room is your primary care physician? Is it “Too bad, you’re not in the loop?” Does...
Dear Editor: The Salvation Army of Northampton County greatly appreciates the many, many gifts that our community has provided to families in Northampton County. This year Salvation Army volunteers rang bells at the Food Lions in Exmore and Cape Charles, CBBT Welcome Center and Walmart in Onley. We thank the...
