This past Sunday, my wife and I drove down to Washington, D.C., as it has been months since we were last down there. What we saw broke our hearts. The White House was completely fenced off from the public as was the Old and New Executive Office buildings, and you could no longer enter Lafaye…

Where is the outrage? Editorial writers, citizens, et. al. Our post offices and postal services, the best in the country, are being starved of the resources to do their job. Everyone must speak out. A group of rapacious Trump appointees is determined to carry out their agenda to break the po…

In December 2020 I wrote a letter to the editor of this newspaper about my frustrations getting my 95-year-old parents, who live independently in Loudoun County, on the list to be vaccinated. After much persistence on my part, I was able to get them scheduled for their first shot of the Mode…

As one who cries easily, last month’s inauguration festivities were a two box of tissues day for me. Of course, many of my tears were the result of watching the history-making vice president. How could I not be moved by watching a black-Asian woman become vice president of the United States?

Recently, I was asked to consider serving on LCPS’ equity committee. The committee’s representatives provided background information and reading materials to catch me up on the committee’s progress. It was very informative. Unfortunately, it was clear there is little room here for diverse op…

The Loudoun County Board of Supervisors’ resolution last week urging Delegate Dave LaRock to resign was a purely political stunt, a direct violation by the Democrats of their individually signed Ethics Policy, and two violations of their own Rules of Order, which each one of them agreed to a…

I am writing in response to a letter to the editor in the Jan. 22 edition. Mr. Troche asked Loudoun County Public Schools to take down a video shown to students at Harper Park Middle School. He wrote, “I was severely shocked when I watched the entire video and it is highly inappropriate on m…

I am so excited to be vaccinated, and for enough people to be vaccinated in Loudoun to reach herd immunity. I sometimes daydream about catching up with a friend indoors, maybe at a coffee shop or restaurant, or even going out to a crowded bar — not a scene I thought I would ever miss.

I am writing in regard to many of the recent changes that Loudoun County Public Schools have undergone. I have seen many negative responses to some of these actions, but I think some of them deserve support. As a recent graduate of Woodgrove, I saw many bad actions taken by LCPS, especially …

Like so many of Dave LaRock’s constituents, I was horrified but sadly not surprised to hear of his shameful participation in the insurrection at the Capitol. His statement that “paid provocateurs sent in to taint an otherwise orderly protest” is a dangerous, cynical lie which is insulting to…

The storming of the U.S. Capitol by seditious rioters on January 6th broke many, and we fervently pray that it was more than 82.3 million, American hearts. The imperfect yet grand American experiment in self-government is indeed fragile.
