    The issue confronting Greystar’s application to build 500-plus apartments along Old Ivy Road is not about density, traffic reconfiguration, or property values. It’s about only one, very important, thing: the safety of the people who depend on Old Ivy Road to get to and from work, school, and home.

      I and many other Republicans in my area truly regret voting for Congressman Bob Good to represent us. He has in such a short time become Liz Chaney in men's clothing. At a time when unity is so sorely needed to overcome so many enacted left-learning policies, he represents everything Republi…

        Last Wednesday, I read that “Swift Ticket Trouble Could Drive Political Engagement” (https://dailyprogress.com/entertainment/music/taylor-swift-ticket-trouble-could-drive-political-engagement/article_38cb489c-428b-5340-8a3f-915c2bb082f6.html). The same morning I woke up to news of yet anothe…

          Ukraine could create a lot of future good will if they did a DNA identification of ALL Russian dead (and placed each in a separate grave). A lot of work to be sure, but should pay off in the long run.

          Thanks to the Daily Progress for its excellent editorial on the horrible shootings at UVa on Sunday night that took three innocent lives and injured two others. However, I’m tired of pretending that there is a social solution (like counseling) to gun violence in the US.  Since virtually anyo…

          I am writing in response to the Editorial “Gun Allegations Demand Deeper Investigations,” which faults the University of Virginia for not acting soon enough to prevent Christopher Darnell Jones from killing members of the football team. I do not think this is primarily the fault of UVA, as i…

          Inflation: It hurts just about everyone. It's in the news every evening. During the recent election campaigns, it was the top topic for candidates who wanted to replace exiting Democratic office holders. I certainly understand that because it's on everyone' mind, and pocketbook. And who is g…

          In reference to the UVa shooting, the media will not report on the gun and where it was purchased or acquired. You will not report on Canada's recent handgun ban. You enable next shootings and are part of the problem.

          My hearts are with the loved ones, friends, and the University of Virginia community. Gun violence continues as a senseless, preventable epidemic. We must do more to end this scourge.

          Today was an incredibly sad day for the University community, and I believe everyone shares in the fog of grief that is beginning to roll out across the Grounds and beyond as the impact of the loss of these three students becomes reality. I remember too well the emotional toll such a tragedy…

          How wonderful it is to live in Charlottesville. Sunday's performance at the Martin Luther King Jr. Performing Arts Center by the Charlottesville Symphony with the UVA University Singers, "Masterworks 2: Songs of Destiny," featuring works by Arvo Pärt and Johannes Brahms was world class. Bravo.

          All the pro gunners blame mass shootings on mental problems. But if there were no semi-automatic AR-15s available, how many would be murdered? It seems to me if all weapons were single shot, then fewer people would be kille3d. It is hard to shoot so many with a bow and arrow from half a foot…

          I feel and hope that Josh Throneburg takes pride in a campaign run with integrity and concern for the constituents of Congressional District 5. I did my small part as I feel our district needs someone with his commitment to the needs of the citizens - someone who would represent us fairly an…

          On Oct. 11 at UVa’s Old Cabell Hall, the audience was transported back in time when a young Russian pianist displayed abilities more associated with the 19th century than that of the last or the present.  

          A Nov. 8 editorial referenced The Cavalier Daily where UVa physicians present information identifying how maternal death rates from illegal abortions compared to the death rates from legal abortions, miscarriages, and routine childbirth. The physicians stress the importance of minimizing wom…
