Letters To Editor

Promoting Warren

Dear Editor, Warren County Chamber of Business and Industry recently released a great video of “Welcome to Warren.” We are fortunate to have some strong events that we rally around and celebrate with the broader region. Often, family and graduation reunions are in full swing when ...

Climate change

Dear Editor, Although I’m no climate change expert, actually far from it, I did some research and found some interesting things. One needs to go online and look up a map of the amount of aircraft, and ships, on the globe at “any instantaneous moment”. The quantities of each, on these ...

Power of the people

Dear Editor, As of 10/19, our rights as citizens have been violated on a consistent basis. Our government for we the people is and has been influenced by money that creates power. Therefore, our elected officials that govern our once great country is not and has not been us people since ...

The turning point?

Dear Editor, Although in January of 2017 Mr. Trump swore and oath to selflessly put his own interests aside in order to serve a greater cause — “to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” and to serve our great nation and all of its citizens — it has ...

A time for choosing

Dear Editor, After reading an op-ed by David Bossie of Citizens United, I agree with what he said: A Reagan speech 55 years ago titled “A Time for Choosing” compared big government v. individual liberty and capitalism v. socialism. He chided Democrats for claiming “they’re going ...

Impeachment

Dear Editor, I thoroughly disagree with the suggestions of the Opinion writer in the Friday, September 27th Times Observer! We live in a democracy where clandestine, backroom meetings and secret machinations are not allowed by law. I absolutely protest the turning upside down of the ...

The invisible

Dear Editor, What do these numbers mean to you 6-8, 10-12, 14-16, and 5, 6X, 7-8, 10-12? Go shopping at the local grocery store. Order a meal. Purchase the latest fashions at a nice store. Go about your normal life. There are no people living in poverty. Drive by a food pantry or a ...

Climate

Dear Editor, I do tend to write a letter now and then not flattering to the idiot in chief. Responses to those letters are usually ridiculed at local establishments from Trump fans, but I am a big boy and at least I do it publicly for all to see. Now I have a challenge to all Trump fans ...

Vote for someone else then

Dear Editor, I’m wondering why the letters to the editor in this newspaper seem to be so overwhelmingly anti-Trump. I believe President Trump won the 2016 election in Warren County by a substantial margin and yet the vast majority of the letters appear to be penned by very intelligent, ...

Ship of State

Dear Editor, The word “government” as we know it today is derived from the Greek word “kubern’o”; meaning to “steer” or “guide” as well as “drive” or “direct”. Regardless of specific opinions, I think it’s safe to say most people would agree that those ...

Enforcing the rules

Dear Editor, I read the 9/17 Times Observer article “Park & Lie” and just ended up very confused by the decision that was ultimately made. Chief Deppen is quoted as saying that the handheld units used by parking staff show which zone users select. If my vehicle is parked in the ...

Our Opinion: Why not? Adopting modern methods for voting

Even though it sometimes feels like it would have to move faster just to reach glacial pace, Pennsylvania’s election system is slowly moving into the 21st century. Beginning Monday, voters now have an online option to apply for an absentee ballot (www.votespa.com/applyabsentee). The ...

Readers Speak

NRA Dear Editor, I, for one, would be very appreciative if any news agency would publish a picture of the NRA membership card for any of the mass shooters. Even a picture of their hunting license might be sufficient. The NRA, with millions of members, is not the terrorist organization ...

Lies or delusions?

Dear Editor, So, Mr. Trump has reportedly made at least 12,000 demonstrably false or misleading claims during the course of his presidency thus far, which is truly quite an unprecedented achievement. In addition, he has never acknowledged the fallacy of any of these claims nor admitted to ...

Hurricane map

Dear Editor, What kind of a person, no less the President of our country, would manipulate a hurricane map to cover his ignorance with a blatant lie? Alabama was never threatened by Hurricane Dorian, according to the best scientific analysis at the hurricane center. As I recall, it does ...

Waterfront development

Dear Editor, This summer, I was talking with the mayor of a small town not far from here. We were talking about Warren and how much I love it here. We talked about everything Warren offers, what our possibilities are, and what I hope to accomplish. He said to me, “one thing that is so ...

Voter suppression is real

Dear Editor, The League of Women Voters of Warren County educational programs help citizen become aware of voter suppression which happens in many ways. One is the redistricting process across the US. In PA our Supreme Court ruled the Keystone State congressional maps unconstitutional and ...

Warren County Commissioners

Dear Editor, Being just one of all people who actually vote here and in the surrounding areas of the county, I think Tom Paquette has some very valid points regarding voting issues. The cost savings alone is a big one! Constitutionality of the system and paper being the gold standard for ...

Original ballot-marking device is best

Dear Editor, Warren County Commissioners are intent on buying new voting machines (ballot marking devices, or BMDs) that are praised for being “most similar to what we’ve been using” ["The results are in,” Times Observer, Aug 21]. They are too similar, unfortunately. These BMDs ...

‘Inept, unqualified’

Dear Editor, In addition to being a national embarrassment, there are many political, logical reasons to despise Donald Trump. But I despise him for his cruelty. He cares not about children getting an education or even food. He had to be ordered to provide soap and toothpaste to the ...
