Letters To Editor

In response

Dear Editor, The letter of Mr. Jeffrey Carlson of 19 March cannot be allowed to stand without rebuttal. If the President is “the most patriotic leader” in this country’s history, I’m Rootie Kazootie. Mr. Trump has no ideology except his own advancement and material profit. He will ...

In response

Dear Editor, With regard to the 3/8/17 “Our Opinion” post, where it was stated that, “Overall, Obamacare has been bad for more people than it has helped,” several issues come to mind. This general issue, especially in light of the GOP’s current efforts to “repeal and ...

YHS football

Dear Editor, I am an alumnus of YHS, I played on the varsity football team for 3 of their worst seasons in the late 90’s (very few players and 2 winless seasons). My family was a large part of lighting up Mike Shine Field in the fall of 1997. I bleed red and white through and ...

Change is not good here

Dear Editor, Technology. Sometimes the very things that we think are helping us are in fact destroying us. Our kids no longer go out and play, instead they spend most of their time in front of their keyboard or smart phone, texting or gaming. They now lack social and interpersonal ...

‘Love of the game’

Dear Editor, In reference to the March 15 article by Andy Close, “For the Love of the Game,” may his article help all those affected by the school board’s decision to co-op the Youngsville football team with Warren. But now let’s talk about the elephant in the room. Many believe ...

Accusations

The Big Lie Machine is so busy lying and creating fake news that they are providing the clearest picture possible of who they are and what they represent, all intending to obstruct our new President’s attempts at repairing the nearly total destuction of our nation done by Barry and ...

‘Don’t make me change’

Dear Editor, They come by boats. Don’t make me change. They come by planes. Don’t make me change. They come by trains. Don’t make me change. They bring their customs. Don’t make me change. They bring their religion. Don’t make me change. We wear what we want. ...

‘True greatness’

Dear Editor, This past week’s events certainly got me thinking about what truly makes America “great.” Is it building walls and declaring bans to keep certain types of people form coming in, based on fears purposefully stoked by those in power while brushing the Constitution aside ...

Impanel a grand jury

Dear Editor, Jon Sitler, having been an outstanding sports editor and reporter, has become an even more outstanding editor of our newspaper. I would like to commend him and his staff for NOT being a part of the Big Lie Machine during the nomination and electoral processes in our most ...

A chance

Dear Editor, It has finally happened. I never thought I’d be writing a letter to the editor, but after reading Jules Witcover in Friday’s paper I can’t ignore it. In it he criticized President Trump for going to Florida and playing golf with Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. He ...

‘I’m sorry’

Dear Editor, This is not a rant. It is mostly an observation and, belatedly, an apology to the Sheriff’s Department. Let me explain. I went to the Court House yesterday (Friday). I always like to approach the building from the front. It is a beautiful edifice, reminiscent of days gone by ...

‘Unlock their doors’

Dear Editor, First, I wish President Trump God’s speed in putting together a coalition of nations to lower the boom on Iran and Isis before they turn their modern day version of The Crusades into a nuclear apocalyptic crusade. Secondly, I wish that all those who oppose the ban on ...

Possible N.Y. declawing ban

Dear Editor, In regards to recent news articles indicating that New York and New Jersey may institute bans on the declawing of cats, it would seem to me that the time and effort to enact these laws would be better spent working on legislation to protect other animals who suffer far worse ...

Township supervisor’s letter prompts questions, commissioner’s response

Dear Editor, As an elected township supervisor, I take offense at the commissioners comment concerning administration fees connected to the dispersement of liquid fuel funds. “Keep it.” Really? The percentage allowable for administration is sizable. To somehow suggest that these funds ...

United We Stand

Dear Editor, Regarding President Trump’s temporary ban on the selected countries, I for one agree with his decision. We, as true Americans, have the exclusive right to protect our country and its citizens from all people who are trying to destroy it and its people. When there are bad ...

In amazement

Dear Editor, I watch with amazement the response of those with a liberal mindset to President Trump’s actions as he starts his term. For the first time in modern history we have a President who actually does what he said he was going to do as he campaigned for the office. There are no ...

Evil empire

Dear Editor, Why do the nations rage and the people plot a vain thing? Events of the last year have assumed Biblical proportions. Governments and institutions ostenibly conceived to promote peace and prosperity have become destructive to those ends. Their mask has been torn off and their true ...

The people’s voice

Dear Editor, I am Tom, the American. I come as a messenger of the people. 2017 is the year of the people’s voice. In and during future years a change is about to occur. This is most likely the last chance that we as a people will have a voice. From this day forward, you are either a slave ...

Thoughts and questions

Dear Editor, 1) If you have ever moved from one state to another, did you “un-register” from the voter registration roll in the state you moved from?  No?  Then you may be (depending on the time frame involved) registered to vote in two states.  If you’ve had a family member pass, ...

An open letter

Dear Editor, We live in interesting times.  There are so many conflicting ideas out there so how are we able to decide what is right, what is true? We have to start with an open mind.  What exactly does that mean?  Dictionary.com describes it as: A mind receptive to different opinions ...
