Letters To Editor

Trump was right

Dear Editor Trump was right when he said, “the system is rigged.” The United States citizen who resides in a state with a small population compared to a citizen residing in a state with a large population is basically overrepresented in the United States Senate, e.g. South Dakota ...

In appreciation

Dear Editor, This one goes out for the kind soul who found my cell phone floating in the Allegheny River on Sunday, August 4th. My wallet was also in the floatation pouch and I wanted to thank the person for turning it into the Sheriff’s office. I asked for a name to give a proper thanks ...

For the betterment

Dear Editor, In response to a particular letter to the editor in last Saturday’s Review-Journal, the writer compares our President to leaders in both the military and civilian milieu. I have had the opportunity and privilege to serve this country for 25 years in 2 different branches of ...

Hail, comrades!

Dear Editor, Let me start out by bragging about my credentials: I am a fundamentalist Christian, I am not a vet, and I am very pro-life (sorry, the murder of children doesn’t really fit my idea of ‘virtue,’ that sounds more like something the ancient Canaanites did, not a ...

Again!

Dear Editor, El Paso, TX, and Dayton, OH, are the latest gun-related tragedies for our society. Not only is it a national tragedy, it’s a national disgrace. Innocent people who were enjoying their lives were KILLED and injured. Their families and loved ones are suffering, not only today ...

Come together

Dear Editor, I keep pondering the senseless shootings of this past weekend. I know there are strong reasons among our friends as to why our nation does not deserve gun control. But, I cannot help but feel there are overwhelming similarities among one another — not just the way we look or ...

‘Look in the mirror of God’s word’

Dear Editor, Jesus Christ came into His world — He had spoken it into existence — and His own knew Him not. Many people have been tripping over their opinion about the reality of our former reality star president. Why? “He doesn’t sound presidential.” Do you forget? We ...

A good leader

Dear Editor, In both the military and the workplace, a good leader will bring people together to achieve a common objective. He will instill confidence in his subordinates and encourage them to pull together. He will listen to advice and make an informed decision. He will earn their ...

‘Enjoy your feast’

Dear Editor, Trump is absolutely correct about his criticism of these cities. After using 2 different search venues, each proved everything he said about the liberals ownership of these disastrous cities. Governors, members of Congress, Mayors, & local politicians are all Democratic ...

Trees

Dear Editor, This week, I watched as two trees were taken down on 4th Avenue. It was not a surprise to me as they have been clearly marked for some time now. Not one of my friends said thank goodness that old tree is gone. Not one said a negative thing about those trees. But, I did hear ...

A gentleman

Dear Editor, A current press interview with former Vice President Joe Biden was refreshing in that he was a gentleman in answering challenging questions from reporters. His demeanor was pleasant and he did not ostracize his fellow Democratic challengers. Trump, on the other hand, is no ...

Where I came from

Dear Editor, It hurts to love a place when it’s clear that it doesn’t always love you back. Growing up in Warren, I can remember strangers leaning out of their pickup truck windows to yell “go back to where you came from” at me. It happened a lot. They’d turn their heads to see ...

Economy

Dear Editor, I need a little help in understanding the economy! I keep hearing from Donnie supporters and him that the economy is the greatest ever, stock markets the highest ever, (which is true by the way, a rare moment from him based in fact for a change!) Black unemployment and Latino ...

Road work

Dear Editor, First of all, quit complaining. It takes a lot of preparation. And that’s the hard part. A lot of removable stuff. Drains — runoffs — raising castings. Go to Jamestown if you want to see how it should NOT be done. They don’t know anything about raising manhole ...

Send her back

Dear Editor, The bigot in chief whom has put down our country dozens of times since being in office leads a rally to send them back. You do not insult the country while I am president, but I can do it as much as I want. Stupid, dumb, third world, weak military to name a few; look it up. No ...

On property taxes

Dear Editor, This dreaded time of the year is upon us when property tax bills will be going out. This robs a lot of people of their savings accounts. It also causes a lot of people to lose their homes because of the high taxes. The school district allows people to pay them in ...

Nature needs heroes

Dear Editor, Professional storyteller Jim Weiss has said that “a hero is not someone who reaches a goal easily. Instead, a hero is someone who decides to pursue a worthwhile goal, knowing that the effort will be difficult or even dangerous... Human progress is built upon a step-by-step ...

America at a crossroads

Dear Editor, Watching Mr. Trump again engage in and gleefully escalate his shameful and dangerous pattern of stoking racism, hatred, and division at one of his “rallies” as he did just the other night, and watching his fervent red-hatted hardcore followers passionately follow his lead ...

Legal and illegal

Dear Editor, For the elucidation of some authors of letters to the editor, there are two distinct kinds of immigrants — legal and illegal. Legal immigrants respect our country and its people enough to follow our legal immigration procedures. Illegal immigrants demonstrate contempt for us ...

State road work

Dear Editor, I am writing this to ask about the state road work in this area? The state comes in and starts work on Pa. Ave. Then they leave it for about a month and we have to put up with all of the big bumps at the intersections. They did come back and fix some of them. Then I see in ...
