Dear Editor: Unquestionably, the proposed G3 (Get Skilled, Get a Job, Give Back) program’s affordable path to higher wage, high demand jobs will satisfy a major need in Northampton County and is a step in the right direction for the Eastern Shore. The program levels the playing field for both low-...
Dear Editor: This is a response to the lengthy article in the Jan.24 issue on the recent pro-Second Amendment rally in Richmond (“Thousands Descend on Richmond to Protest Proposed Gun Laws”), and the reports from the legislature by Sen. Linwood Lewis and Del. Robert Bloxom. The concern by Virginia gun...
Dear Editor: I read with dismay about the widening of T’s Corner into a four-lane divided highway (“Supervisors Ask VDOT for Improvements to Chincoteague Road,” Jan. 24). I have two concerns: 1. Widening to a four-lane highway from T’s Corner to Atlantic will only cause a bottleneck at Atlantic. A similar...
Dear Editor: There are currently 758 students in Accomack County Public Schools who receive special education services. As required by the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA), they are entitled to a free, appropriate, public education which meets their individual needs. Special education students, like their non-disabled peers, have the right...

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. He does have an...
Dear Editor: Please see the speech below by Rep. Clay Higgins. It is so on-target; Democrats have been talking impeachment ever since President Trump was elected. They thought Clinton had the election in the bag. “Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I have descended into the belly of the beast. I have witnessed...
Dear Editor: The Northampton High School Homecoming Committee would like to thank all our community members and leaders for supporting the transportation efforts of Virginia State University’s marching band for our homecoming Sept. 27. We are truly thankful to Cape Charles Rotary, Mrs. Maxine Rasmussen, Mrs. Darlene Burton, Mrs. Jo...
