The findings in your article about population growth, or rather lack thereof, in Rappahannock County, really resonated with me.
Mr. Garrett may feel that the immigration ban proposed by President Trump is not a ban on Muslims, but the Ninth Circuit thought differently.
A year ago our store at Old Hollow Road was ripping along, with good food, fine times and a full parking lot. Folks were coming from all over and a good time was being had by all. Well, almost all.

I read the story in yesterday’s paper about the MacPhersons’ rezoning application withdrawal, and wanted to point out that VDOT did not make any formal determinations.
Al Henry is a great asset to Rappahannock County. He has been dedicated to our county for many years as a member of the planning commission. Al has the knowledge of the policies to guide our county safely.
As a participant in the march, I can assure you that there were great numbers of men as well as women at the rally. The concerns raised at the march are concerns of all genders, colors, religions and nationalities.
