"What VDOT told us they were going to do, and what they actually did were entirely different. We are being told now that since we signed their papers there is nothing we can do. We understand that eminent domain is necessary, but after dealing with VDOT we realize how uninformed and naive we were to think we would get fair market value for our land."

"Why do you educated people pronounce Botetourt as "Botetot" and Staunton as "Stanton?" A visitor from Pennsylvania asked me why did we pronounce those words incorrectly. I told her it started back in early days when there was very little education. But there's no excuse with the educational system we have today."
