((A viewer from Troutville (Karen Clark) who's had some dealings with state transportation officials over land for a road project praised our recent series on eminent domain, and had some advice for others in the same situation:
"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."
Pronunciation of certain places in Virginia irked another viewer (Grace Layne/Glasgow).
"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."
And a piece in one of our newscasts brought sharp words from a Collinsville viewer (Jim Maxwell).
"Why did you waste those few last moments of your newscast with the story on "Pregnant Bikini Contest"! Isn't there something that's more newsworthy than this kind of "contest"? In the future, please, use some common sense when making decisions on what to broadcast."
