The following notice will appear in the Virginian Leader this Wednesday:

Giles County Citizens:
It has come to the attention of both the Democratic and Republican Parties of Giles County that there have been numerous incidents of vandalism in regard to political party signs.  We, as chairs, of both political parties ask that you be respectful of each other's property. We can agree to disagree on the issues but we ask that you do not destroy political signs of either the Democratic or Republican parties.

9-11 Remembrance and Democracy

On this somber day, we should remember the victims of 9-11.  Osama bin Laden did not just attack our institutions of commerce, military and government but he also attacked democracy.    He is dead  thanks to our president and the military but we must never let those who want to destroy our freedom and democracy prevail.  We must renew our commitment to democracy by becoming informed on the issues and our candidates.
