Go figure

Since Route 29 North is to be closed for sometime starting July 8, VDOT in their usual brilliance has decided to pave Crest Hill Road starting July 8, which would be a way for us to access I-66, bypassing Warrenton and Route 17, alleviating some traffic issues through Warrenton. […]

Two thumbs — and more — up

Last night at Avon Hall, those impulses returned full force; it was all I could do not to march up and down, and did shed some tears, gulping down the sobs. What a splendid concert by Col. Bourgeois and his group! And some participation was welcomed, happily for me. […]

REC directors work to find right balance

The proxy allows members to vote for an individual candidate, designate another member to vote on their behalf, or provides for the Board of Directors to cast the vote as it deems appropriate. I am writing about the importance of returning the proxy and to provide some perspective on REC’s governance and direction. […]

When relief came to Old Hollow

As I recall, Cheryl Hart subsequently wrote a letter to the editor of the Rappahannock News, thanking law enforcement and the residents for their help with this awful tragedy. Interestingly, she noted that the local residents were lucky to have possessed family “watch” dogs, which discouraged the perpetrator from breaking and entering other homes in the neighborhood. […]

A cleaner Rappahannock County

I am proud to say that over 100 persons brought a variety of materials for disposal, including flammable liquids and fuels, waste aerosols, pesticides, herbicides, swimming pool chemicals, waste mercury, batteries, and oil-based paint. All items collected were shipped out of Rappahannock County that afternoon for final disposition at a facility in Pennsylvania. […]

Too tragic to recall in print

Photos of smiling snipers waiting it out make my heart ache. Not to mention the quotes you used to call the reader in. I suggest your writing skills and the book review could have been appreciated online rather than on the front page of the Rappahannock News. […]

Gifts of life by the gallons

Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood, and it can only come from volunteer blood donors. I would like to thank all of those who volunteered their valuable time to come to the Red Cross Bloodmobile on June 19 at the Washington Firehall. The Red Cross collected 22 pints of blood. […]

Quite the Garden Party

Supervisor Frazier ‘entitled to representation’

Your article of June 13, 2019, “Supervisor Frazier racks up hefty legal bill in suit he’s ‘not a party to’” showed a serious lack of diligence in seeking and fairly reporting the current state of events. Mr. Frazier is subject to the court’s jurisdiction because of a subpoena served on him by County Attorney Arthur Goff in connection with Bragg I. […]

RAWL around the world

Thanks for the beautiful story on Wesley. Your story has been read from California to Kauai. He’s been a great dog for us. He didn’t know how to sit when we first met him but he was an old soul. After a week of intense training, he was able to fly on a jet round trip in the cabin. He is lovin’ life on the West Coast. […]

Restoring county zoning integrity

The BZA has scheduled a public revocation hearing for the original three-bedroom permit on June 26. Henrickson has since filed an application for five bedrooms. To apply for five bedrooms, while conditions for the previous permits are unmet and subject to revocation, is audacious. […]

Thanks for faith and fun

I would like to take this time to thank my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ for an outstanding Coming Together Campmeeting. I can’t say enough thank you’s for the Flint Hill Fire and Rescue Department for allowing us to have this wonderful event on the carnival grounds. I want to thank every Pastor, Preacher and Evangelist that came. […]

For all you do . . .

Thanks to all the Rappahannock veterans who came together for our first annual Flag Day Veteran’s Beer Call. We had representatives from all ranks for the four major services, a WWII vet, and even representatives from Allied Forces. This year we had 31 veterans. Next year, let’s get 60! […]

I went to the Garden Party . . .

I am writing to express my deepest gratitude for the wonderful community participation at our Garden Party this past Saturday. It was a beautiful evening filled with good cheer and lively conversation and we could not have been more pleased with the results. […]

Thank you

The Rappahannock County Recreational Facilities Authority (RCRFA) would like to thank the organizations and volunteers who helped make the inaugural Rush River Conservation Day on Saturday, June 8, a great opportunity for youngsters and adults alike to have the opportunity to fish in the beautiful, clean Rush River.

Thanking many friends

I would love to give a BIG THANK YOU to all my supporters of both ECOW and the Sperryville Corner Store for all those years (19) of supporting me. I have left the Corner Store and plan on enjoying a summer of not working all the time. I am staying in the area and know I will be seeing most of you around the county. […]
