TVS And Free Rein

Free Rein, a wonderful therapeutic riding program in our community, recently held its annual fundraiser, the Mane Event, which included both a silent and a live auction. As I reviewed the offerings for the live auction, I was drawn to a beautiful...

 

A Coup, Not Impeachment

I would like to respond to Gerald Kilpatrick’s letter in last Monday’s Nov. 4 Transylvania Times. The main thing that he omitted is the simple matter of fact. The fact is that Bill Clinton was not impeached for having sex. He was correct in that...

 

Congratulations, BHS Volleyball

We would like to congratulate the BHS volleyball team on their great season and being ranked as the second best team in class 2A division in North Carolina. The team played well together and were a joy to watch. The team finished with a record of 26...

 

Becoming Self-Sufficient

In pondering the possibilities available to us as a county to make us more self-sufficient and productive without endangering our futures by destroying the environment, I have come up with the following possibilities: We could as a group agree to...

 

Meadows' Antics

I recommend to readers the editorial in the N.Y. Times of July 27, 2018. It recounts the antics of a group of Republican congressmen seeking to impeach Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, a Republican by the way, for despite turning over...

 

Which Is Impeachable?

President Clinton was impeached for having sexual contact with an intern and lying about it, hence perjury. President Trump has withheld authorized money, our tax dollars, from a country in order to compel that country to help find “dirt” on his...

 

Fortunate To Have Paper

As Robin J. Phillips stated on Oct. 21, I agree wholeheartedly that I’m willing to pay $49.95 for a year’s subscription to The Times. Although I have no background in journalism, I’ve been an avid reader of newspapers for decades. As a...

 

Brevard Hemp Is Not A Vape Shop

Imperative to the success of a business is the elimination of false rumors. As the co-founder of Brevard Hemp on Caldwell and Main, I must shed light on the falsities portrayed in a recent Opinion of the Reader comment. Brevard Hemp is not a vape...

 

Unrelenting

It becomes more clear every day that the Democrats will never, and I mean never, relent in their quest to bring down the president. It started on the November night when he was elected and has never stopped no matter what Trump has accomplished. He...

 

Vote For Jones

I am voting for Kevin Jones as a city of Brevard councilman due to a pragmatic rule I have to never vote for a person (write-in) as I don’t want an elected official that is late for the dance! Richard Hingle Brevard...

 

America, We Can Do Much Better

Another day, another sad example of unethical behavior from our president. While one could write a letter a day commenting on the latest from the White House, President Trump’s obvious attempts to take the lion’s share of credit in the wake of...

 

Businesses Should Recycle

A recent column by Willow Walker is reminiscent of the series The Transylvania Times ran last year. That series educated readers about our landfill. It was a wake-up call, and perhaps it worked since the life of our landfill has been somewhat...

 

Dinkins Deserves Write-In

Brevard residents who are seeing signs around town for the election of Geraldine Dinkins to city council may have initially wondered, “Who’s that?” The Transylvania Times candidates’ questions and answers article in the Oct. 17 paper...

 

Transylvania Times Is A Vital Asset

Within the pages of The Transylvania Times each week is recorded a spectrum of events, concerns, needs and celebrations of life beginning with announcing our entrances into this world to the quiet closure of our lifespans. If The Transylvania Times...

 

Fortunate To Have Hospital

I am most appreciative for the care given me on my recent visits to Transylvania Regional Hospital Emergency Room. Dr. Hunt, nurses and all attendants involved in my care were very kind and understanding in my treatment for the issues at hand....

 

Too Much Pressure On President

I worry about too much pressure being placed on President Donald Trump. He is in a position of great responsibility and when one considers that he exercises this responsibility with little input from our traditional group of experts that our...

 

Free To Fail

There was a letter to the editor published in the Oct. 21 Transylvania Times that shows how much the socialist perspective has already crept into the thinking of the American citizenry. In a legitimate observation about seemingly poor business...

 

Ignoring Citizen Input

Driving home last week I took a shortcut on a back street and passed the biggest waste of money, the reconstructed train depot! How many “venues” can a city this size use or need? We already have the Rogow Room at the library, the Music Center,...

 

Surprising Mr. Trump

Like most Americans, I’m always surprised by Mr. Trump. He surprised American farmers by getting into a pointless dispute with China that took away the farmers’ markets in Asia. He surprised business owners with his tariffs on Chinese goods...

 

Get ALDI

I just finished reading the article regarding new business coming to Brevard. I am only one of many who are disheartened by what’s happening. We do not need another fast food chain, another car wash, another Starbucks, etc. What we “do” need...

 

More Support For ALDI

I read Helen Coomer’s opinion article in the Oct. 13, 2019 issue of The Times and couldn’t agree more with her urging the city to do whatever they can to move forward quickly to bring an ALDI store to our community. I also drive to Arden to do...

 

What We Don't Need

Who in their right mind in the Brevard city permitting and business license departments approved a new car wash across from the White Squirrel Car Wash on Highway 280? What we don’t need in Brevard is another vape shop, beauty parlor, Mexican...

 

Barr Is Destroying Moral Order

Last week the Attorney General of the United States told an audience at the University of Notre Dame’s Law School that “militant secularists” are conspiring to “destroy the traditional moral order” of this country. William Barr should be...

 

Trump's War

In 1983, Israel appointed the Kahan Commission to investigate the incident at Sabra and Shatila where Christian Phalangists slaughtered Palestinian and Lebanese Muslims the previous year. The commission found that Israeli military personnel, aware th...

 

No Interest In Supporting Depot

I am in total agreement with Charles Owen’s in his letter published Oct. 10 concerning the condition of our streets. I understand the Depot is being built with private donations and grants. I also feel it might be better to look at other...
