When I recently saw Sheriff Mike Chapman on television starring in a campaign ad for Mr. Glenn Youngkin, I viewed it for what it was — a political ad for a candidate running for Governor of the State of Virginia. I never felt it was an attempt at news.

As college students in 2021, we have never known a government that truly works for us. Issues that matter to most people — our failing healthcare system, the climate crisis, the COVID pandemic — are rarely if ever addressed by our government, and the response, if there is any, is usually ina…

Growing up as a Muslim woman in post-9/11 America, I’m all too familiar with the kind of Islamophobia that plagues this country and the rest of the Western world. With the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan this past week, Muslims all over the world must prepare to face a new resurgence of Is…

Loudoun County is considering taking by condemnation a piece of historic Rockland Farm based on the premise that White’s Ferry is an essential aspect of our local transportation system. As a matter of fact, principle, and perhaps legality, the County taking private, historic land by eminent …

It’s too bad our Chamber of Commerce succumbed to the pressure of hiring a diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) assessment firm to evaluate their level of racial inclusivity. It will be a lose-lose-lose situation.

As a Loudoun County citizen and a former patron of White’s Ferry, I watched with interest the town meeting in Poolesville, Maryland on August 18 about the future of White’s Ferry. I had to wonder why the owners of the Ferry’s Virginia landing were not invited to an event that was addressing …

I was moved by the opinion by F. Fatemi that appeared in the August 13 edition of the Times-Mirror. It is indeed difficult not to be outraged at the irresponsible behavior of individuals regarding vaccinations, etc., yet my biggest outrage is not directed at any one individual, but at our ow…

I don’t think anyone is surprised by the Loudoun County School Board’s 7-2 vote that passed transgender policy. They have consistently demonstrated that they don't share the values of this county despite enormous attempts to communicate it to them.

It is amazing that in today’s society we seem to jump to conclusions and ignore a great deal of reality. For example, a great number of people want to impose today’s thinking regarding morality to people who lived 300–400 years ago. This is why some people want the names of schools changed, …

Living in the United States, especially Loudoun County, our privilege is so ingrained in our lives that we often don’t acknowledge it. However, living where we live, it has become increasingly more obvious to me how much of a role we have in fighting global poverty. It is no secret that the …

I don’t understand why today’s school children should be made to feel guilty for someone else’s grandfather’s and great grandfather’s sins, and particularly in Loudoun County. The fact that there were slaves in Loudoun County 150 years ago and Jim Crow laws here well over a half century ago …
