  • Trouble with Centurylink

    I am an older widow and maybe considered an outsider, but we have owned a cabin near Flatridge for 45 years. I don’t have any cell service, as I am behind the mountain from the tower. Therefore, I had to rely on a land line over the years.

  • Who should own your Congressional representative?

    Just who should own your representative in Congress — corporations, or you the voter?

  • Impressive show

    The July 15 presentation of “Completely Hollywood” at the Carol Jane Waddell Outdoor Galax Theater Guild stage was excellent.
    Presented by the Arts Council of the Twin Counties and directed by Stephanie Dees, the young and excellent performers were Wesley Harmon, 16, Molly Sullivan, 15, Daphne Utt, 18, and RJ Baber, 18 (sound and lights) of the Wandflower (Galax flower) Actors Group.
    The show was delightful, well done and funny with great humor, great props and impeccable timing. Bravo.

  • Saddened by state of country

    It is a very sad time in our country when people who really care about the community are gunned down and killed; from a 17 year veteran firefighter in California to five senior staff members of a newspaper in Maryland.
    Rejects of society who have a life of misery bring it upon innocent souls that cause pain and tears.
    If it’s not police officers, it’s firefighters or bystanders. Gun violence seems to be an everyday occurrence in our society, where losers run amok and who do not care for anything.

  • When good people do a bad thing
  • Restrictions to public road are unfair

    The following letter is a response to the submitted letter, “Community needs access to road,” which appeared in the June 6 edition of The Declaration.

  • Community needs access to road

    Our place is centered between Middle Fox and Grubb’s Chapel on the Old County Road. Maps dating back to the early 1900s show the road and home sites.  
    Two property owners put up two locked gates on the center portion of the road to end through travel. One continues to demand that gate stay in place. Mr Hash, on Grubb’s Chapel says he was threatened when crossing. Another risked the right to a spring that feeds their home for using the road.
    Henry Reed has horses and a carriage he rides often. He was told he could no longer use the road.

  • Remember to vote in the upcoming primary

    Guess what: before you or any of us can vote in November, we first have to have a June 12 primary. That’s where important choices are made about whose name gets listed on the November ballot.

  • Need help with phone service in Elk Creek

    What is happening to the phone service in Elk Creek? My phone has been dead for 26 days, as of May 16. There are phone trucks around, but when the drivers are spoken to, they claim to be contractors who do not do repairs.
    Without access to 911, I am in a critical situation as is a large percentage of Elk Creek residents living in a dead zone for cell service.

  • Grayson 4-H needs help for summer camp

    I am writing on behalf of Grayson County 4-H and the camping program. We are very excited to camp this year. We have many exciting programs planned and know that camp will teach participants many lifelong lessons.
    Each year, we have families who want to give their child an opportunity to enjoy camp, but experience financial hardship. This year, we have exhausted all of our in-house funds to support campers and still have families that are in need.
