    May I please inform President Biden that my husband and I keep paint cans, an old step ladder, a work bench, and items that we no longer use in our garage.

      When it comes to "protecting classified information," people who call for enforcing the law to the maximum extent possible should be careful what they ask for.

        Thank you, John Fees for your bold and patriotic letter of Jan. 12, “Protecting classified information”, especially your statement, “Anyone who cannot handle classified information should not hold a security clearance without exception.” Including presidents both past and present.

          'This is classified': These words have been used over many years to identify our most important secrets that protect our country. There is deep meaning behind these words, including the basis for the classification, but further, the hard work and blood shed to protect our nation.

            Tonight [Tuesday], Mayor [Stephanie] Reed’s new Council majority passed a resolution to declare that Lynchburg will not expend public funds to “restrict the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens... or to aid federal or state agencies in the restriction of such rights.”

            Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives, Republicans on Lynchburg’s City Council: Both seem more interested in performance art than actual governance, although there is little art to either performance.

            During the holidays, peace is everywhere: “peace on earth” ... “wishing you peace” ... “the Prince of Peace.” Yet every new year, peace is forgotten again until after Thanksgiving. Since everyone claims to value peace, why does each year bring little progress in creating peace?

            The revealing "youth sports" article ["In youth sports, money rules," Dec. 25] was disappointing to me. The entire paradigm of student athlete has been reversed, and in too many cases, "student" has been taken out of that equation altogether.

            Jubilee Family Development Center sincerely thanks our friends throughout Lynchburg and its surrounding counties for your support in the past year. Because of you, Jubilee’s Summer Enrichment Camp returned to full capacity post-pandemic, and we took dozens of local students on college field …

            To those in the former 24th House of Delegates District of Virginia: We are holding a special election to elect a replacement for our late respected delegate, Ronnie Campbell.

            Now that the Jan. 6 committee has wrapped up, I have this to say. I have encountered many people who claim that former President Trump is not complicit with the Jan. 6 riot because he said, "I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patrio…

            The recent editorial, “Intervention is needed to help clean the bay” [Dec. 1] was timely and informative. It shed light on the critical need to step up efforts to clean the bay.

            The news reported recently that the 100-plus police officers who guarded the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021 were awarded the Congressional Gold Medal. That included the families of some who died as a result of this riot.

            Those of us still heating our homes with #2 heating oil are receiving quite a shock as we receive the billings for this product.

            This month, in Colorado Springs we have seen three great dangers for the survival of our society come together. Loyalty to guns over innocent people, distrust of our educational system, and irrational fear of persons who appear different from us, whether gay or foreign or apparently of a dif…

            Once again [5th District U.S. Rep.] Bob Good enjoyed a week of "nay" votes on a seemingly benign legislative agenda.
