    To the Editor: On a recent Saturday morning I picked up the Sports Section as I always do and noted the Caroline High School football team had lost…again. A perfect season…no wins.

They went to every practice.

    To the Editor: Years ago I had a friend that said, “Tell the truth and shame the devil.” Obviously, someone in our school system is not “shaming the devil.” I have worked with both Mary Anderson and Jeff Sili on behalf of the community and I have found both of them to be people that care for the community and are very honest.

    Posted on November 24, 2014 at 4:00 pm

    To the Editor: I sent a letter to our district Supervisor, a member of the Caroline County Board of Supervisors, to point out and make abundantly clear that the promotional “Support for Chaney Enterprises” petition presented to this Board was in fact a fraudulent and illegal document. This questionable falsified document included my name and forged signature along with the names and signatures of deceased persons and numerous others that
