Today's Opinions

  • AHCA would lower healthcare costs

    By Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-Salem)

    This month, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the American Health Care Act to repeal Obamacare and start a health care reform process to return power to the states, drive down costs, and offer options to American families.

  • Media gives congressional Republicans a pass

    Pundits are hammering President Trump for his bizarre behavior and his attacks on the Constitution. However, I believe the media is largely giving congressional Republicans a pass by ignoring their dubious involvement in Trump’s agenda. By their actions and sometimes by their silence, they are complicit in Trump’s scorched earth policies.

  • Russian connections deserve investigation

    James Comey’s clumsy handling of the Clinton email investigation won him no friends among Democrats, but they generally recognized that his investigation of Russian meddling in our election had to continue.
    They also recognized that his abrasive independence might be critical to finding the truth in the absence of an independent special counsel.
    Democrats, and some Republicans, are not angry about Mr. Comey’s firing because they liked him. They are angry because his investigation has been compromised.

  • Pet owners can prevent dog attacks

    In April, the United States Postal Service promoted National Dog Bite Prevention Week. I am writing to ask our customers to extend their efforts and help make this “National Dog Bite Prevention Year.”
    Pet owners’ efforts are critical when you consider the number of Postal Service employees attacked by dogs last year reached 6,755 — more than 200 higher than the year before. Within the Galax Post Office, there have been no dog attacks since the beginning of the year.

  • Pray for country as it enters dark days

    Strike up the band and release the balloons for the first 100 days of this government.
    Before, during and after the election it has embarked on a path of self-destruction.
    A war with the news media and federal judges. Fiction is for novels. The truth is real.
    The banner this government continues to display is fake news. I’m right, the rest is all wrong and From Russia With Love.

  • How do you obtain a copy of a fire report?

    What is the exact protocol for obtaining a copy of one’s fire report?
    I asked for a copy almost two years ago, but did not receive it.

  • Stick to scripture in sermons, not opinions

    If all preachers and Sunday school teachers would stick to God’s specific Word instead of basing their sermons and lesson on their personal opinions, motives and biases, they would be effective without offending.
    The effect would be what God intended between His Holy Spirit and the listener. The need wouldn’t exist for others to come behind those preachers and teachers to try to help fix the damage they do.
