Dear Editor,Area residents seem to be in an uproar over the city just doing its job. If you choose to own property in Vinton, you automatically sign up for Vinton's own "Homeowners Association." The rules for living in Vinton are listed under the many ordinances found on the City's website There are 180 Chapters listing all the things you CANNOT DO on city property.
Dear Editor,I see the City once again entered private property and destroyed personal property. I also noticed that a trampoline and a kayak were left and later a boat that was removed during the abatement, that was full of "stuff" was returned minus the "stuff".Does anyone see this as a problem?Nosing around, because it is easy in "V town", people love to talk.
This Q was submitted July 16. I did not see it until this day July 26.Thus:Stiegelmeyer Failed to answer a simple question and that is shouldn't it be easy to vote? Again, we had the most successful elections ever and no v9ter fraud. Why the push to make voting more restrictive? Please answer that one! You're watching too much Fox News. Let logic be your guide.
I had already decided that I wasn't going to say very much more, but when my heart is so full, it kinda squishes out onto my keyboard. If I deem it "good enough" you get to read it. These past 7 weeks have been a marathon of trying to hurry and squeeze every last memory out of a man that we knew we were about to lose. The guy that for the most part was quiet.
Editor: A question for our many readers:Thus; when was the first time you heard of "Critical Race Theory"? For me, it was early this year. I had not ever heard of this concept before, in fact, I do not believe I have ever held any "discrimination" thought or theory ever. Do I discriminate based on race - no? I discriminate based on the character and integrity of the individual.
Dear Editor, I find it very interesting that Gould and Braden bring up objections that have no legitimacy. Name one person who has been denied their legal right to vote. I brought up two items that seem to have much contention that is an ID and requiring a person to vote in the precinct where they are registered. Again you have not discussed the issues I raised.
Dear Editor: With the action by various Governors signing laws redefining election laws -- just exactly who is deprived of their right to cast a legitimist vote? As I see it any U.S. citizen eighteen years or over can cast a vote in the precinct that they are registered in is this denying a legit vote? - Is the last statement untrue? Why then are the Democrats including our now President Joe Biden campaigning against these legitimate laws passed by legitimate State Legislatures and signed into law by the various Governors? Is it a repression of vote requiring an eligible person to vote in the Precinct they are registered in? If that is not required then they will be able to vote in numerous precincts without restriction.
Dear Editor, It was very interesting to read the history of the Vinton Lions Club. The help the club has given to the town of Vinton has been terrific. 100 years of projects helping the city and assistance in various forms to individuals and organizations has to be unmatched. The hours that have been donated to accomplish these programs have to be astronomical.
To the Editor This is my time, post 4th of July, to comment clearly about the mess us Americans, us proud, flag-waving Americans find ourselves in today. We have been shamed, criticized, canceled, boycotted and forced to yield in silence to others' 1st Amendment Rights at the expense of our own. We have watched in silence as National and State monuments have been defaced, removed or destroyed.
Editor: Isaiah 5,20They say that what is right is wrong, and what is wrong is right; that black is white and white is black; bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter. Isaiah 8th century BC his long ministry lasted almost sixty years and covered the reigns of four kings, the last one being Hezekiah, the reformer. How does one so ancient write what is so appropriate today? Washington Examiner Hugh Gurdon observes; not a day goes by without parents rebelling against left wing indoctrination of their children at school.
