Opinion

Girls 7, Boys 1

By Valerie Close · October 24th, 2018
It finally happened. It's been a long time in coming. For years we heard, "Well, not this time..." There were funny Facebook posts that led us to believe for a second that we MIGHT have this happen, only to have a twist at the end that said, " but not this time!" Each time, I didn't really care, because I was still thrilled.

JUST LIGHT MY FOOD ON FIRE AND CALL IT DONE

By Valerie Close · October 16th, 2018
I grew up at a time, when kids in other countries were starving. This was always the reason why I was never allowed to waste food. At least that was the story, and my dad was sticking to it! He was also a firm believer in “waste not, want not”. It wasn’t until after we had been married a while and we had gone out on a date that I said to Dean, “This tastes awful!” He looked at me and said, “You don’t have to eat it.

Fiber cables are all over Vinton. Any one of those lines can connect us with the outside world. There are lots of possible configurations, but here is the one that might be the best for Vinton. If we connect to two lines in town, coming from different providers, we would have redundant communications service.

iVinton: Why it matters

By Vinton Today · September 10th, 2018
By Dean Close, Editor Have you ever wondered what kind of informal awards you would receive, if they gave out random awards based on your habits, personality or actions? For example, I may receive a “Most Likely To Burn Down My Neighborhood Award,” somethng my neighbors and two fire departments can attest to.

Letter to the Editor: NY Times and the President

By Vinton Today · September 6th, 2018
Editor, The latest anonymous piece published in the NY Times does not warrant the ink necessary to print.  Your paper would not publish any opinion piece written by me if I stipulated that my name not be attached.  Only a coward would write a critical piece and withhold his signature. I have read the article -- so what – he has a temper – he gets frustrated – things don’t go as fast as he would like  -- he changes his mind.

Letter to the Editor

By Vinton Today · September 3rd, 2018
Editor: Many have written about the disappearance and murder of Mollie Tibbetts. It was tragic and an outrage. This brutal act was carried out by an individual illegally in country for many years. He had forged State ID and Social Security numbers a serious crime in itself.  Those of us who believe that Mollie and others killed by illegals are somehow bigoted and prejudiced against people of color is an attempt by the left to stop debate.
