  • Reader requests balance for Virginia voters

    Virginia is a biphasic state, actually a commonwealth, with Northern Virginia in the political and financial sphere of Washington, D.C.
    Truly, the population density and wealth of the commonwealth are mainly in the James River area northward, up until and abutting the Potomac River on the south of the Potomac.

  • Know what you’re being charged for

    As a self-pay patient I feel it’s my responsibility to spread the word so everyone is aware of something I feel is new in the wellness visit billing world.  
    I took my daughter for her wellness visit to a local doctor’s office. During the visit the doctor asked the traditional questions, which I answered truthfully.
    When the bill came I realized we had been billed for a wellness visit ($120) and a sick visit ($151). I called to explain that this must be a mistake, as it was one visit and my daughter was perfectly healthy.

  • Candidate’s negative comments unfair to opponent

    I find supervisor candidate Gesche Morley energetic and invigorating.
    One Sunday early this summer we traveled to Floyd to a training seminar. We were new acquaintances, so there was a lot to talk about.
    I was curious about her approach to problem solving and the areas she had talked about as her areas of focus for Grayson County.
    She talked about the foundation of agriculture in our county. She talked about the deep involvement of her sister, Charlotte, in grass-fed beef and the potential for growers here.

  • Morley is best choice for Wilson District

    As we approach Election Day, those of us in Grayson County’s Wilson District have two choices for the supervisor seat: Tom Revels and Gesche Morley.
    I have been assisting Ms. Morley. As we campaign around the district and talk with people, I am impressed by Ms. Morley’s willingness to listen to concerns, what matters most to voters, and discussions that follow.
    Ms. Morley is a retired teacher. Her hometown is Elkin, N.C. She moved here five years ago, built a house, and settled along the New River with her husband, Eric.

  • Candidate using divisive tactics against opponent

    The nation just endured the most divisive election since 1968.  There was a coarsening of political discourse.
    It is disturbing that this type of conduct has invaded our local election for county supervisor. Tom Revels, Republican candidate for the Wilson District, has characterized opponent Gesche Morley as a city person who does not hold rural folk in much regard, and he attributes this to her family ties to Charlotte Hanes.

  • Voter wants respectful fight in board race

    Listening to the candidates speak at the Grange Hall “Meet the Candidates” event September 28, I was impressed by the speeches made by both candidates for Wilson District Supervisor. Tom Revels and Gesche Morley gave fine speeches that addressed issues very important to their district, and Grayson County generally. I thought they were both well suited for the seat.

  • Goodness exists in Grayson County, world

    The recent tragedy in Las Vegas once again placed a horrific story on the front page of every newspaper and was the lead story on every TV news channel. The loss of so many innocent lives is an unthinkable act for most of us and may cause some individuals to think that all respect for life and humanity is a thing of the past. As the reality of the hurt and pain caused by one person started to consume me, I turned to memories of recent life experiences that prove to me there is reason for hope.
