Opinion

With the understanding that I am only one out of 75.4 million American Millennials, I would kindly like to offer a differing opinion than that which Ms. Condon expressed in her recent piece, “Resurrecting Faith Requires Connecting with Nature.” Ms. Condon refers to a Pew Research Center survey, pointing out that Millennials are the least religious of all American generations...
Crozet, a small simple quaint town, destroyed by the greed of construction. Large builders who block other smaller builders from building in places like Old Trail. Landscaping destroyed by the insensitive greed of those that are selfish and fulfilled by money. Violations of traffic laws by persons who believe they are better than others.

If you had told me a year ago that my vivacious and energetic three-year-old would need open heart surgery, I wouldn’t have believed you. But at a routine cardiology appointment at U.Va. Children’s Hospital last October, my daughter’s doctors discovered that the heart defects we’d known about since her birth had changed and needed to be repaired. Our story has...

It is almost unbearable to ask this, but we must. Our country must never accept that our children may not return home from a day...
The cell phone tower proposed to loom over the home bleachers at Western Albemarle High School should not be permitted, or if allowed, should be moved to the most remote corner of the property possible. Federal Communications Commission rules prevent local governments from opposing cell towers over concerns about possible health risks, and Albemarle’s ordinances therefore are based on aesthetic...
I read Dr. Reiser’s article on immigrations trends with interest (“Crozet Annals of Medicine: Mother of Exiles,” Crozet Gazette, February 2018). He states the second problem is that far fewer babies are being born. I could not help thinking of the 60 million Americans that have been aborted since 1973. They would have contributed not just financially, but in...
