So I can only gather from this that Congressman Garrett does not care about this constituent's concerns. He might do better to take a page out of Mark Sanford's book.
When did we become a country that kicks anyone out for no reason? My question is rhetorical. We abandoned all reason on November 8, 2016 for certain.
Last month, with the intention of introducing myself as the new editor of this newspaper, I paid my first visit to the RAWL shelter in Amissville. That's how I met Luna.
I have always enjoyed winters in the County, feeding the cows and seeing the look of appreciation on their faces as they chow down on fresh hay. I especially enjoy those sometimes necessary jobs associated with cows having calves.
I want to congratulate Rapp News for outstanding investigative reporting and Mrs. Knick for her courage to provide transparency, on the serious matter of rule of law.
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.
Unfortunately, we are now witnessing a surprising and disheartening lack of trust by a vocal minority in our community and between some elected and appointed officials in our local government.
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.
We read Congressman Garrett’s letter in last week’s paper and would like to discuss some points. Unfortunately he has not held nor has he committed to holding a live town hall meeting with his constituents during this recess week.
I love Rappahannock. It suits my soul....We stopped in Gainesville a few days ago. Amazing how fast that community developed. Blazing lights replace the stars; the American need for shopping and entertainment evidenced everywhere.
Mr. Garrett’s lack of willingness to address the questions sent to him via Facebook and his avoidance of real answers shows me that this type of town hall meeting is a cowardly way to address the issues of his constituents.
Will he compel Sheriff Connie Compton to harass law-abiding immigrants coming into our community? What is he doing about student debt crushing our families? Or the unfunded state mandates driving up our property taxes?
Our local hiking club, Boots n Beer hiked the trail last Saturday. I showed the others the trash site. We frequently use Shenandoah National Park and on President's Day, Feb. 20, we plan to collect the trash.
Finally if you do not have insurance YOU DON'T OWE ANYTHING! This can't be emphasized enough and please spread the word. Avoid unnecessary risk to life by calling 911 in a medical emergency.
I hear my Democrat friends saying that a “Muslim ban” will serve as a recruiting tool for ISIS. I agree. Talk of one will have those consequences but I would submit there is in fact no Muslim ban.
