Grudge suit, pure and simple

Are you kidding me with this lawsuit that citizens, i.e., us the taxpayers will have to pay for? Schools need funding. Washington needs to pay for that sewer treatment plant that helps the Inn [at Little Washington] provide enormous tax revenue to this county. Our community services need funding. This is a frivolous suit. […]

Vote for Webert

Mike has been an excellent representative for the people of Rappahannock County over the past six years. As a farmer, Mike is the only candidate in this race that knows the challenges that we face in this agricultural area of the state. […]

‘No-cost’ benefit to county?

We didn’t see a “bike path deficit” as one of Foothills Forum’s findings regarding needs for Rappahannock County. The county is divided enough today. Does the county want to invest in something that over the next five or more years is unlikely to become less divisive? […]

Get real, people

The suit’s other claims strike me as equally strained. Together, they take the term frivolous to new depths of absurdity. But to pursue the suit’s proposed remedies, a special prosecutor and Mr. Lesinski’s removal from office, would turn the county’s judicial process into a travesty. […]

‘Right man for the job’

I read with interest your recent article describing the upcoming Culpeper Candidate Forum for the 18th District. As a Marine Veteran, to me, there is only one choice in the coming election for Delegate in the 18th District, and that choice is Will King, the Independent candidate. […]

‘Overlooking the land he loved’

Dick was one of Virginia’s early advocates for sensible and managed growth. He saw the link between ecology and economy, the value of farmland and open space, the worth of preserving and protecting natural resources. He wrote and implemented local ordinances to advance those goals. […]

Thank you, supervisors

The best part about the project is that, through the VDOT Transportation Alternatives Program, funding is available to cover up to 80 percent of the construction costs, and local foundations and individuals are stepping up to cover the rest. […]

The Land of What Ifs?

With so many of today’s youth hunkered down inside with their tech devices, the new opportunity we here in Rappahannock County have with the RappTrails proposal is, in my opinion, a welcome addition and outdoor opportunity for many. […]

Trail hazards?

Bill Freitag raises important questions. Who will be liable when bad things happen on the trail? Who is legally responsible? What is the taxpayers’ exposure and how much of the county really supports this long term undertaking with numerous unknowns? […]

Rappahannock not welcoming

I love Rappahannock Co. — and it’s the birthplace of both my parents, but you are not very friendly to those of us who don’t live there. It’s very difficult to find a good, reasonable priced restaurant for [a] meal or some place to grab a burger. […]

When best intentions go awry

A bicycle trail is imposed upon the land. It requires more of the land to be buried under tons of concrete. Furthermore, the proposed right of ways in effect create a widening of Route 211, visually and aesthetically imposing the same result as if lanes had been added. […]

Phantom driver of Whorton Hollow

I’d like to thank the reckless driver in the white pickup who going way over the speed limit coming over a hill in the middle of a narrow gravel section of Whorton Hollow Road, did NOT hit me head on. You did force me to swerve into a ditch that is about a foot deep, 25 feet long and filled with sharp rocks. […]
