Your Views: Community does care about Douglass Cemetery

There is much recent history that was not mentioned in the article about Douglass Cemetery, “The fight to preserve Douglass Cemetery,” in the Nov. 25 Alexandria Times and I feel compelled to fill in this glaring gap.

Editorial: A few centuries later, Barbados and Charleston get yet another link

Those less familiar with Charleston's history might not understand our strong links with the Caribbean's easternmost island, a small nation that marked a major milestone Tuesday. During the day's earliest hours, while most of us were still in bed, Barbados held a formal ceremony to become a republic, officially cutting its ties with Queen Elizabeth II and casting off one of the last remaining vestiges of its colonial past.
