Today's Opinions

  • Galax postmaster thanks customers for patronage

    Employees at the Galax Post Office take great pride in serving the community of Galax and surrounding areas.
    It is because we love what we do and Galax is such a great place to live and work. Mostly, it is because we serve wonderful customers every day.
    I’ve worked in Galax for 14 years delivering mail and managing delivery. As the postmaster of Galax it is important to me that I communicate to our customers that their concerns are my concerns.

  • Airstream group enjoyed Galax rally

    As co-directors of the 15th annual Airstream Special Events Rally for the Wally Byam Caravan Club International, we want to extend sincere appreciation to the citizens of Galax.
    Our Airstream group was warmly welcomed by everyone during the week of the Old Fiddlers’ Convention.
    Special thanks go to Ray Kohl, who arranged for our use of the Rex Theatre during inclement weather, to Wayne Henderson for his continued friendship and to the young musicians who so generously shared their talent with our Airstreamers.

  • Who was really behind 9/11 attacks?

    Consider the implications of the 9/11 attacks in the light of scientific, empirical evidence, that the Twin Towers in New York were not brought down as we suppose they were, but by satellite-based direct energy weapons.

  • We count on the mail

    Chip Hutcheson is president of the National Newspaper Association and publisher of The Times Leader in Princeton, Ky.

    I got the mail today.

    A couple of bills. A greeting card. Some catalogs. A newspaper. One package that my wife grabbed right away. (Wonder what that was?)

    Lately, it occurs to me how completely I take for granted that I will get the mail tomorrow.

  • Don't let political correctness taint debate

    I was glad to see the report on the discussion in the Aug. 10 Gazette about the transgender situation in Grayson County Schools, but that is not the reason for this letter, as I am not stating a position.
    One of the speakers made the comment that they were offended by the opposition to transgendered students being allowed to use the bathroom of their choice.
    The woman making this statement is a well-educated and very nice person, but in this case I believe that political correctness has again reared its ugly head.

  • Voters, educate yourselves

    It is now official: we have our nominees for what could easily be called one of the most controversial presidential elections in our history; and the “Race for the White House,” as CNN so eloquently puts it, has begun.

    What the candidates do between now and November will be crucial in determining who better earns the trust of the majority of the country; that is, if we pay close enough attention.

  • Taking time to thank the community

    In my opinion, thank you Grayson County.
    Recent events have made me conscious of our time here and I want to say thanks to friends, neighbors and hard-working people of Grayson County, Briarpatch Metal Works, Paul’s and Quik Check, which survived a fire and came back.

  • Faith community's mission is to be more inclusive

    Editor’s note: This letter from the Carroll County Ministerial Association was read by the Rev. Amanda Hatfield Moore at a prayer vigil in Galax on July 24 held by Hearts United, which seeks to break down barriers between people and promote unity and peace. The movement began locally, in the wake of police shootings of black suspects around the country, and recent attacks on police officers.

    To the People of Carroll County:
