Our county leaders are the stupidest bunch of no knowings I have ever seen. Just keep sticking it to the farmers and ex-farm families who are trying to keep their land in their families. Its all many have left of their heritage. You and the federal government have destroyed the tobacco heritage of this region and most of the markets closed --- ah, but now we have a Japanese tobacco market coming to the area and you go ape-poop over the thought. If you'd give incentives (less restrictions & economic penalties) to the farmers of this country they could feed this nation and all the third world nations of the world. Talk about a boost to the nation's economy!! But no --- you are too short-sighted to look that far ahead. It is always tax more and restrict more freedoms.

Time to smack some sense in the Commissioner of Revenue and remove him from office.

I agree that this county could feed all of Virginia and much of the nation if the farms could produce crops. I do not understand why they do not? Tobacco is gone and grapes are for few so why not grow food??? Please explain it to me!!!! As far as the politicians go they are all looking for attention and are doing nothing. You make no gain by taxing people that have no money. You make no gain by hiring illegals (government subsided ) as you just create more unemployment. Also people I have run into do not want to work at jobs that are so called "menial". Get your hands dirty for a change and not with crime.
