Letters To Editor

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 ...

Pheasant hunters

Dear Editor, Pheasant hunting in northwestern PA is on the verge of going away. Recently the Pennsylvania Game Commission announced the closing of the Western Game Farm in Crawford County and the Northcentral Game Farm in Lycoming County. The Western Game Farm supplies Warren and adjacent ...

Delay the DOL Fiduciary Rule

Dear Editor, Please ask President Trump to delay the DOL Fiduciary Rule.  The annuity industry is working hard to comply with the Rule by April 10th, but there are still hundreds of questions the Department has yet to answer.  The first DOL FAQ issued last October created even more ...

‘Injustice everywhere’

MLK once so wisely stated , “Injustice anywhere  threatens justice everywhere...” Why is it that 5 out of every 10  young men of color , 4 out of every 10 young men not of color , and 3 out of every 10 young women of any color are arrested before the age of 23 for Victimless and ...

Running short

Dear Editor: Reference to the lottery running short: Taxing retirements because the lottery is running short? Let us try something else first. Put a container next to all the lottery machines for people to feed into instead of playing. if the contents of this container went to the same ...

Don’t apply

Dear Editor, I read with great interest the article, City council opposition to sidewalk ordinance. In particular I refer to Mayor Cashman’s question as to who is liable if he were to trip on a sidewalk. The answer in the City of Warren is no one. To paraphrase a retired Warren County ...

Not from anyone

To the Editor, Speaking as one of a great many around here who were deeply disgusted at the outcome of the November elections, I no longer want to hear, “You lost, get over it,” or other equivalents. This was not a matter of losing an election; in fact we Democrats, living as we do ...

Gold

Dear Editor, So goes a country’s currency so goes a country. United States of American was most great in prosperity and global acclaim when on the gold standard, 1834 to 15 August 1971. Donald Trump, “Make America Great Again”, does not describe to failure, knows a class-act legacy ...

DeVos not what America needs in Public Education

To the Editor, Betsy DeVos, selected by the president-elect for Education Secretary of the USA, is unfit to serve. DeVos has actively tried to dismantle public education in her home state of Michigan. Neither she, nor her children attended public education. The DeVos family heavily funded ...
