Letters To Editor

Thank You, WTO

Dear Editor, I must take a moment to offer my deepest thanks and to laud you for standing up so courageously for journalism in your editorial of August 16 entitled “Abridging the Freedom” in the face of Donald Trump’s relentless attacks on the priceless work all journalists do for ...

Thank you

Dear Editor, ‘Dear Draft Horse Club Members, Thank you very much for your kindness in inviting me to show in the obstacle course in your Fun Show at the Warren Fair. It felt great to be invited, and my handler and I had a great time. If you think about inviting me next year, she says ...

Political correctness run amok

Dear Editor, Our beloved, once sacred, Constitution guarantees that all citizens have freedom of speech. Speech is to be limited only by the restriction of not harming others. Beyond this, people are permitted to say whatever they wish, including language that some consider offensive. Our ...

Patriotism

Dear Editor, Just curious, how does a draft dodging Putin puppet challenge the patriotism of NFL players or anyone else for that matter? Jack Landers, Sheffield

Leadership you deserve

Dear Editor, To be a great President, I fear a man cannot be his own mentor... He cannot live the Sermon on the Mount... He has to be a Machiavelli, a Borgia, a Caesar, an unctuous Religio, a liar, a what not to be successful. What’s more, the American people will accept a second-rate ...

Decisions

Dear Editor, Roundabout? Traffic light? Let me ask this... has there been any major accidents with just the stop sign that’s there now? Hotel? Do we really do we need it? Are there tourists that have no place to stay? Parking garage in need of repair? Is it filled to capacity? Or can we ...

Nuclear Security Project

Dear Editor, Thursday, August 9th, is the 73rd anniversary of the Atomic bombing of Nagasaki, Japan. The world has lived under a threat of nuclear annihilation ever since atomic bombs were detonated over Nagasaki and Hiroshima. Former United States Secretary of Defense William J. ...

Hiroshima bombing

Dear Editor, Monday mark(ed) the 73rd Anniversary of the detonation of an atomic bomb over Hiroshima, Japan. This was followed 3 days later with an atomic bomb attack on Nagasaki, Japan. This week many governments, church groups, and peace activists will hold memorial services to ...

The putrid swamp

Dear Editor, As we all too well recall, my president had/has several catchall phrases. One, in particular, has come back to haunt this Administration over and over again. “Drain the Swamp!..... Drain the Swamp!......” Seems we have one more ‘gator to add to the growing list, ...

‘Battle Over Socialism’ is fake news

Dear Editor, Rich Lowry’s opinion piece in the August 6, 2018 edition of the WTO is, at best, sloppy journalism or, at worst, intentionally misleading (lies!). His claim that proposals of “Medicare-for-All” amounts to socialism is simply untrue. Socialism requires government ...

‘Battle Over Socialism’

Dear Editor, Mr. Rich Lowry’s piece in the 8/6//18 WTO entitled “The Battle Over Socialism Is Joined” presents the idea of “Medicare-for-All” as “a fringy plank of a growing element of the Democratic Party” and “a completely batty, politically unserious idea” which would ...

Grateful (Bravo)

Dear Editor, Words cannot express the gratitude that Autumn and I have for the support, both emotionally and financially, that has been shown to us. We are both still in awe from the benefit. We are so grateful to all those people that helped make it possible. A special thank you is ...

Good deed (Bravo)

Dear Editor, This shout-out goes to the person who anonymously paid for lunch at Docksiders at July 20. I can only imagine the sight you saw as the young lady struggled to get the wheelchair to the top of the hill. I wanted to let you know the young lady was deemed lacking character by the ...

Immigration

Dear Editor, In 2014, PA had 180,000 illegal immigrants living here. By 2016, that number of illegals finding Sanctuary in PA grew to 860,000. Imagine how many more undocumented lawbreakers have entered our state by breaking into our country in the last two years. By the way, that is ...

Robbing Peter to pay Paul

Dear Editor, As is well documented and agreed upon many rational economic experts, my president’s tariff war with China will promote jobs and farming in China while making it tougher for American farmers to compete in World markets. They need to, as Americans don’t eat much in the ...

Amish

Dear Editor, I wonder if the people that go on tours of the Amish communities in Ohio are shown their horrible puppy mills; guess not, as they are well hidden. Mary Taylor, Warren

Outdoor burning

Dear Editor, No smoking or vaping in ALL areas of ALL city-owned parks, at ALL times and in ALL circumstances. “I just think it would be safe and best for everyone,” states council member Phil Gilbert. Let us revisit, once again, the outdoor burning in the city of Warren. Please ...

No borders, no country

Dear Editor, Recently, a Time magazine cover showed immigrant children in a detention center. This was intended to be evidence of President Trump’s hard-heartedness. But the photo was taken in 2014; Obama was president. Migrants can request asylum at specific stations on the border. ...

Milk

Dear Editor, This is a comment to the OUR OPINION: GOT MILK in the Warren Times Observer - July 21, 2018, regarding the Food and Drug Administration and labels titled "milk." Using my academic nutrition background and teaching experiences, consumers don?t read labels to know what they ...

Patriotism

Dear Editor, Trump said, “NO STAND, NO PLAY, AND NO PAY” to the NFL players exercising their right of expression (First Amendment) to focus attention on the need for improved social justice. Standing with all respect for the National Anthem is the expected patriotic behavior. In ...
