Letter: Residents Misunderstood

The Fairfield County Council meeting last night (1/13/20) was quite a good show. Neighbors from Center Creek Community misunderstood the Resolution. We voted to pass the Resolution so we could have money to purchase property in the Southeastern part of Fairfield County. It was not a vote to purchase the Syrup Mill Road property. We […]

Letter: WHS Pride Soars

I was really disappointed and hurt when I read the headline of the article about SAT scores (BHS shines, WHS lags on SAT,AP) in the Thursday, October 17 issue of The Voice. To see our school described in such a negative way made me sad for our kids and teachers who work so hard. My […]

Letter: Keep Voice of Citizens

I read recently in The Voice that our County Council has voted to revoke the (2nd) second citizen’s comment portion, of voicing their thoughts publicly. It appears to me that the voice of the people in Fairfield County no longer counts. I’ve lived in this county my entire life. My family has been here generations. […]

Letters: Replace the Solicitor

I thank you for having the guts to report this horrible animal abuse!  Many people are not aware unless the news media reports these abuses.  This solicitor needs to be replaced, he has allowed animal abuse to continue without punishment to the owners!  Hopefully, the people of Fairfield County will not be silent and get […]

Letters: “It Wasn’t A Circus”

Letter: Why Meadow Died

I urge everyone to purchase and read Andrew Pollack’s just-released book, Why Meadow Died: The People and Policies That Created The Parkland Shooter and Endanger America’s Students. Pollack’s daughter, Meadow, was one of the students murdered at Marjory Stoneman Douglas H.S. in Parkland, Fla. I immediately bought the Kindle version and will now buy the […]

Letter: Two Wrongs Don’t Make a Right

On August 2, 2019, the Ridgeway Zoning Administrator made a recommendation approving the rezoning of the property on Main Street at the intersection of Hwy 34 and Hwy 21 from R-1 to C-1. On September 16, 2019, the Ridgeway Board of Zoning Appeals rescinded that decision due to a technicality based on the procedure (or […]

L&J has managed […]
