• Hospice helped me to keep my husband at home

    To the editor,

    November is Hospice Awareness Month.

    Having recently experienced their help with my beloved husband, Jimmy Airington, I would like to thank Hospice of Chesterfield County and each one of them for their dedication to their work.

    I could never have kept my husband at home without their help. He had pulmonary fibrosis, as well as bladder cancer. After the cancer surgery, he developed MRSA in the hospital as well as pneumonia.

  • Honoring our vets by providing improving their health care

    To the editor,

    The 11th hour of the 11th day in the 11th month of 1918 is a day in history that marked the end of major conflicts for those who had served during World War 1. 

    Since that day of Armistice, which ended the hostilities between the allied nations and Germany in 1918, veterans from all services have found themselves face-to-face with enemies while protecting our nation and our allies. 

  • Treasurer Loftis warned us about pension plan

    To the editor,

    In the past few weeks, our state’s pension plan has finally been in the news.

    We are being told that it is in terrible shape and that there is a debt of over $22 billion, and it is growing by $1 billion every year.

    This information is not new.

    State Treasurer Curtis Loftis has been saying for years that our state’s pension plan was in trouble. Treasurer Loftis warned that we were paying extremely high fees and making risky investments.

    No one listened.

  • Hospice helps patients, families focus on living at their best

    To the editor,

    No one likes to think about death and dying, but it’s something everyone has to face eventually.

    There’s an incredible resource in our community that provides comfort, dignity and respect to all those coping with a serious or life-limiting illness. It’s Hospice of Chesterfield County.

    November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Month, a time to reach out to our community to raise awareness about the compassionate care that hospice provides.

  • Letter to the Editor

    In a debate on Obamacare, the law was called a failure due to high premiums, deductibles, failed promises and plans loaded with unnecessary provisions, such as maternity care for nuns and senior adults.
    Other problems include the fact that it is a forced government program with hidden taxes and costs and it appears the only people who can afford coverage are those being subsidized.

     Dear Editor: 

    It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Chesterfield County residents are decking the halls and trimming the trees. The Chesterfield County Fire Fighters Association’s (CCFFA) wish is for a fire-safe holiday season. While our primary goal is to keep every home fire safe, we know that this isn’t always realistic. This holiday season, we want you and yours to know when to go should fire strike your home.
