Does anyone else think the virginian leader has turned into one big school newspaper? On every page this week there is some school event/cub scout meeting/lunch menu. I remember the day when Burger King in Narrows opened and that made front page news. Enough to make me laugh but now with all the school events its time to save my money and get my giles county news elsewhere.

The Virginian Leader doesn't do any real reporting. Any "news" they get is straight from the police blotters, without any effort or double checking of information on their own. It's a "feel good" journal, and serves no real purpose. The publisher should be ashamed that he doesnt actually try to do something worthwhile with that so called "newspaper."

I am glad it is a feel good paper. No one else dwells on good news, it is all bad news. It is a community paper and I do enjoy looking at what our youth does. I remember being a kid and how excited I was of I was in the paper! That's big to a kid!
Also it is hard for them to report the latest news as it just a weekly paper.
However as I stated before, I enjoy the kids news and I also enjoy the happy news in our community. Sorry you guys don't and I understand what you are saying, I just like to be happy!

I don't know who you are, and don't care to know but I also work at the Virginian Leader and you are way out of line. I love my job, the people I work with and the people in charge. They run a very good business and treat their employess with respect. And obviously the business isn't failing or it wouldn't still be here.

Look, you stated your opinion and I stated mine. I'm not going to get into a immature argument over something this ridiculous, I have much better things to do with my time, as I would hope you do. As for the houses and etc, that is his PERSONAL life, which has to be keep separate from a business.

I luv the comments of the VA Leader. They don't treat everyone the same. They have their pics. They hired a druggy, then fired him. They hired that Dave guy after he once quit. They let that elderly man go because of age I guess, and fired many others that was good workers. But they didn't suck up the way they wanted, so "go figure", they're gone too. Now someone said they let that other guy, Doug, go, and they said he'd been there for, gosh, 20 some years. Again, that David guy was sucking up. Hey people, don't apply for a job there. I worked there a long time ago, and it's not changed any. Stay away if you want treated fairly. If you like being treated dirty, that's a job for U!

People I come in contact don't generally have a lot of nice things to say about the paper, or the publisher. One guy told me it's nicknamed the Virginia Cheerleader because it doesn't really report any news, and just sucks up to those in power.

I also heard that an employer at the post office wanted to put something in the paper telling people about the different services offered at the post office, and good ole' Ken wanted to hit her with an advertising fee

I heard that the new guy, Dave I think is his name, is a back stabber. I heard he's the reason that other guy got laid off. I was told he would tell him to do certain stuff or a certain way, then lie to the boss about it. I don't think that's right. That other man had been there for many, many years. Dave just wanted it all. It's all over that all mighty dollar. Who don't need a dollar? When someone tells you to do something and then stabbs you in the back, I guess we can all get the picture. I don't think the Virginia Leader paper dis fair, and it sure don't treat the employees fair either. How many more agree with me? Go ahead and fess up!

I've read many of the comments about this newspaper. It sure doesn't sound like that Rakes man and that Dave guy is liked very much? We all know they buy their way around at that place. All I can say is if you want a good reputation, I sure would not want to work there. It started out as a good little paper, but no more. Shoot, you can't even buy a paper anymore. I also heard many stores say they are going to stop selling them.
