Today's Opinions

  • Nursing home thanks donors

    Grayson Nursing and Rehabilitation Center thanks all in the community who donated gifts, cards, wreaths, money and a generous amount of their time with our residents during Christmas season.
    It occurred to me while decorating tree after tree in the facility (as well as dealing with lights that do not work, ornaments that break and the occasional tree that falls over), that this is not what it is all about.

  • Don't undo county progress with zoning repeal

    To the Grayson County Supervisors:
    I have lately been a bit concerned with the actions and attitudes of you, our county representatives. There seems to be a divide between you that mirrors some of the same syndromes we see on both a state and national level, politically.
    The two views that seem to be on display are:
    1. That government is too big and needs to be downsized by any means possible. 2. Government is how we, by majority, design and implement courses of action that never please everyone, but serve to do the most good for the most people.  

  • A power play in Grayson?

    Are Grayson County supervisors John Brewer and David Sexton backing the wrong horse in siding with Supervisor Rosenbaum?
    Are they digging themselves a hole that will be impossible to climb out of? Time will tell for sure.
    Seems these three men are causing a lot of hard feelings among citizens of Grayson County. I don’t have a horse in this race, but I do have a feeling Brewer and Sexton are not helping themselves.
    These are two very good men, but I feel are going down the wrong path in this instance. They jumped too quick in the things they voted out!

  • Why Virginia needs a farm bill now

    By J. Calvin Parrish, state executive director for the USDA Farm Service Agency; and Ellen Davis, state director for USDA Rural Development

  • 2013 EDITORIAL AWARDS

    There’s a lot of national “news” we’d like to forget about 2013 — Obamacare debates, the “fiscal cliff,” Honey Boo Boo, twerking, “selfie” pics and state election ads on TV.
    However, we could watch footage of Miley Cyrus and Honey Boo Boo snapping a selfie pic and twerking as they drove a car off the fiscal cliff over, and over and over. But, with our luck, Obamacare would cover their recovery and then they’d be back.

  • Despite steep cost, curvy road at least needs warning signs

    As Grayson County citizens sign a petition to get the Virginia Department of Transportation to erect better warning signs for unsuspecting truckers traveling on Comers Rock Road, people in Carroll County are no doubt feeling a little déjà vu.

  • IRS 'scandal' lacks proof, is politically motivated

    A recent news flash stated, “The IRS has been caught targeting conservative groups!”
    If our media had substituted the word “accused” for “caught,” their “news flash” would have been true.
    To make matters worse, CNN reporter Candy Crowley, asked Rep. Darrell Issa, the Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee, “what is your gut feeling?”

  • Hope House thanks youth for supply drive

    The Galax Hope House expresses appreciation to Dylan Bedwell for sharing such wonderful birthday blessings.
    The much-needed supplies came to us in two truckloads of food items, supplies and many other items.
    They were delivered by Dylan, his family and friends after his birthday party. They helped us to get all the items unloaded and inside.
