Letters to Editor


This letter is in response to an article in last week’s True Citizen, which falsely identified our 15-year-old daughter Henrietta Maria Crumbley as the writer. The above mentioned letter about the Lady Bears softball team was not written by Henrietta or any member of our family. We do not know who wrote it, but whoever did should have been bold enough to put their own name to it. It is a shame that we have people in Burke County, Waynesboro, who would stoop to this level. My child is innocent and we stand behind her. Those were obviously the words of a disgruntled person (child or adult), who was not happy with the Burke County High School (BCHS) softball program and the problems that surrounded it this year. If we had wanted to say something, we would have said it. We are not afraid. We will not tolerate the slandering of our child’s name by anyone. Leave our child alone. Our family’s world does not revolve around BCHS softball.

Henry and Martha G. Crumbley


This is Jennifer Dixon, and I would like to thank the woman that returned my wallet. She had found it near Dairy Queen. You are a very respectful and honest person.
Thank you.

We Welcome Your Letters

Letters to the editor of The True Citizen are welcomed and encouraged. These are pages of opinion, yours and ours.

 The unsigned editorials generally appearing on the left side of the editorial page represent the opinion of the newspaper and not that of any one person on our staff. Personal columns represent the opinions of the writers whose names appear on them and are not to be considered the opinion of this newspaper, its management or owners. Letters to the editor voice the opinions of the newspaper's readers.


  • “Letters to the Editor” will be limited to 400 words per letter.
  • “Letters to the Editor” column will no be used to fight personal battles, political or otherwise, and we reserve the right to cut off continuous letters on the same subject.
  • The True Citizen reserves the right to edit any and all portions of a letter, but we prefer not to do this and except for changing misspelled words, have not done so.
  • We prefer that all letters be typewritten and double spaced, but realize not everyone has access to a typewriter or a computer. Neatly printed or handwritten letters will be acceptable if they are legible.
  • All letters must be signed and contain the address and telephone number of the letter writer. This is important to assure that, if necessary, our staff can authenticate its origin.
  • Some newspapers limit the number of times a letter writer can submit their views on a particular subject. The True Citizen has not done this and, at this time, does not plan to initiate such a policy.
Deadline for letters to the editor is Tuesday noon.
