Letters To Editor

Hunting

Dear Editor: I would like to give Mr. Cotton another viewpoint to his article. As an avid hunter/trapper for over 40 years, the “return on your investment” needs additional input. The hunter enters the woods before daybreak to get in position. From there, the hunter sees the frosty mist ...

Commentary

Dear Editor, The current Republician tax legislations reminds me of my subject matter. “Nathans Parable 1* The Lord sent Nathan to David, and when he came to him, he said: “ Judge this case for me! In a certain town there were two men, one rich,and the other poor. The rich man had ...

Tax bill/Thompson

Dear Editor, Here are my issues on the tax bill that Representative Glenn Thompson has voted on. Issue #1 -Representative Thompson has, in the past, been HUGE proponent of limiting increases in the Federal Deficit. Yet the bills that have been passed and waiting on reconciliation are ...

Give and take

Dear Editor, I was reading the December 6th article on Murray energy corp. and am wondering how the issue of 60 million dollars in taxes will devastate his company, and coal as a whole, considering they are already paying the tax and are flourishing financially. The new rules regarding ...

Tax cut: Shoulda, coulda, will it?

Dear Editor, Will the corporate tax cut benefit the middle class in some way? It SHOULD: 1. Decrease prices for cars,gasoline and lot of other stuff. 2. Make the Affordable Care Act affordable. Drug and health insurance companies will lower prices and premiums. With all that extra ...

A big win

... for some. Just not you. You people, you middle class. A provision was defeated, brought by two Republicans, to cover more low-income child tax credit recipients. It seems this would have increased the corporate tax from the new 20% to 20.94%, and we can’t have that. Other ...

New guiderails

Dear Editor, I watched new guiderail being installed in various locations in Warren County this past summer. Seems most if not all old guiderail is chopped up for scrap. Why can’t the rail be given or sold to county townships for roads that need guide rail? I have been told PA. law prevents ...

Today in History

Dear Editor, In your November 18th article Today in History it stated: “In 1966, U.S. Roman Catholic bishops issued a Pastoral Statement on Penance and Abstinence, which did away with the rule against eating meat on Fridays.” To clarify this, here is a quote from that Pastoral ...

Alabama election

Dear Editor, It’s a fools errand to trust the men in Alabama to do their civic duty, and betray Roy Moore, by rejecting him at the ballot box this coming election. Most men of integrity would have disqualified him even before the latest sexual accusations, that he pursued romantic ...

“Tax reform” plan?

Dear Editor, As the specifics of the GOP’s current “tax reform” plan emerge, it becomes clear that this plan would primarily benefit America’s wealthiest citizens and corporations at the expense of working Americans, the middle-class, and the poor, which seems to be a central and ...

Judge Moore

Dear Editor, Judge Roy Moore, the Alabama Republican candidate for the United States Senate, insists that his alleged sexual conduct with several women should not be believed. There is an old, universal adage taught to Archaeology 101 students that “Absence of evidence isn’t evidence of ...

Operation Christmas Child

Dear Editor, Watching the evening news, it’s all too easy to be discouraged by what is going on in this country and around the world. Then along comes National Collection Week for Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes and we receive 8,349 of boxes, 2,640 from the Warren area. ...

Veterans Day

Dear Editor, I want to thank your staff for their special coverage of Veterans Day in Warren County. May we always be grateful to our military for their sacrifice. With that in mind, it’s deeply troubling to see America, the designated leader of the free world, at war with itself. ...

Gun control debate

Dear Editor, In reply to Mr. Buonocore(’s recent letter to the editor): As I interpreted (the) letter about the lack of gun laws, I saw nothing rhetorical about what (he) implied. It read like we live in the wild west in anarchy with no rules, which is untrue. I pointed out a plethora of ...

Statues

Dear Editor, Was just thinking about the statues being taken down in the south because of racisim and how it bothered the black people that the statues were of people who were once slave owners. I was thinking about the north and how it may have all started in our own state of Pennsylvania. ...

Politics

Dear Editor, It is not very humanisitic for any medical facility to deny drugs to a person suffering from cancer. I do not believe in undue use of drugs without a reason. Riots and burning over Congress may be due to drugs and it could be a result of young people whose parents sent them off ...

‘Harder on Trump’

Dear Editor, I would like to make your readers aware of an interview which appeared in the October 21st edition of the New York Times. The interview was of former President Jimmy Carter, who stated in the interview that, “I think the media have been harder on Trump than any other ...

Swamp

Dear Editor, I was wondering who the recent letter writer was referring to when he stated that Trump did not realize that the swamp was full of crocodiles and poisonous snakes. Hopefully the writer is aware of all the swamp dwellers Trump has surrounded himself with. The short list inludes ...

For their service

Dear Editor, I wish to extend a sincere thank you to the sponsors, volunteers, and all who made possible the 3rd Annual 4 Paws 4 Veteran’s Dinner. It was well-organized, well-managed, and the dinner was outstanding. I had the opportunity to meet and talk with many veterans while I was ...

In response

Dear Editor, Many thanks to Mr. Reiff for his thoughtful and well written responses (10/19) to the series of rather rhetorical questions regarding gun control issues which I had posed a while back. His response beautifully exemplifies precisely the kind of civil and constructive discussion we ...
