Dear Editor: I read your story about attorney Paul Watson IV (“State Bar Revokes Eastville Attorney Paul Watson’s License to Practice Law,” March 6, 2020) and wish that you can publish my comments about him. Mr. Watson provided desperately needed representation to my nephew that certainly saved my nephew’s life when...
Dear Editor: In response to the “ditch garbage” letter to the editor (“Trash Pollutes Our Treasure,” March 12), the previous sheriff offered a trash cleanup work detail for inmates. I was fortunate to be part of that program in which we averaged 600-1,000 pounds of roadside garbage a day. I look...
Dear Editor: The Eastern Shore of Virginia Broadband Authority, Spectrum, and Neubeam are steadily improving our access to highspeed broadband, defined by the FCC as 25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload speeds. Some of the hookup costs can be pricey, but most broadband monthly service costs are affordable. But the...
Dear Editor: Regarding the March 5 article, “Exmore Residents Exasperated With Repeated Flooding,” I found laughable the manner in which the Exmore Town Council kicked the can down the road. Councilman Adkins’ account of his cellar flooding was a pathetic attempt to show “we’re all in this together.” Not everyone in...
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...
Dear Editor: On Thursday, Feb. 18, the Cape Charles Town Council considered a request to advance the two conceptual proposals (AQUA and Virginia American Water) to the detailed stage of the town’s PPEA (Public-Private Education and Infrastructure Act) guidelines. 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...
