    Letter: Lions and LEOs, a call to serve

    "Everyone can be great, because everyone can serve." From Martin Luther King, one of the most recognized and literal appeals to serve, but what does that really mean? Serving your community is perhaps the most satisfying and rewarding work you can accomplish, regardless of your age or station in...

  • Resident: Abingdon Business Park not ‘constituent-friendly’

    Resident: Abingdon Business Park not ‘constituent-friendly’

    The citizens of Abingdon first learned about the Abingdon Woods project in January when a sign was posted along Abingdon Road about 100 feet from the parsonage of St. Francis DeSales.

  • Letter: Ma & Pa Trail tree removal poorly planned

    Letter: Ma & Pa Trail tree removal poorly planned

    The recent tree removal to create pedestrian access to the trail was absolutely poorly planned. Who was responsible for the design? They should be held liable for harming the land and the environment, and wildlife not to mention removing privacy from an existing development and ruining that section...
