Letters To Editor

Roundabout

To the Editor, I see the “investment in infrastructure” for the roundabout is moving forward. Experts tell us this will ensure a safer, more efficient flow of traffic. Are these the same experts who stood along Market Street with their clipboards a few years back, and determined that ...

Holidays

Dear Editor, The longer the backsight the more accurate the foresight. Civil matters, civilizations, holidays give direction: Halloween — All Souls Day, spooky spirits; Thanksgiving — the harvest, giving thanks; Christmas — the winter solstice; Easter — vernal equinox, spring, life ...

President Trump

Well, Donald, the party is just about over. Pretty soon, we will be hearing that familiar song – Lock him up, Lock him up, Lock him up. I think it goes like this – what goes around comes around. And your former trusted friends are singing like canaries! Semper Fi, Carl Rozelle, Russell

Block Party

Dear Editor, Heraclitus, Greek philosopher, 5th Century, B.C.E., “Asses would rather have hay than gold.” Is that why Democrats use a straw man for their lack of delivery (accountability)? When the “man” fails resort to the wicked, legal term, a bit of truth in every lie. Alarming, ...

Dave Byers

Dear Editor, The Borough of Tidioute lost a great friend last week. Dave Byers, a son and strong supporter of the town, passed away in Las Vegas, Nevada. Dave was a very successful man and a special guy. He used his wealth to support the town he grew up in and loved. For many years, he ...

Voting machines again?

Dear Editor, Regarding the article about new voting machines for Pennsylvania (12/3/18), I was surprised to read that it took a lawsuit for the Wolf administration to concede that elections are important enough to be verifiable. I thought that, as elections are the beating heart of a ...

Respect

Dear Editor, George Bush (#41) sadly passed away. Does not matter your party... he was a great president. He tried to unite our country instead of dividing it. He could have, I am sure, found a way like someone else to not enter the military, but volunteered to serve our country and did so ...

City council approves roundabout

Dear Editor, I was not surprised the roundabout was chosen. Mayor Cashman states everyone he talked to is in favor of the roundabout — it’s time to move into the 22nd Century, says the mayor. Who is the everyone who wants the roundabout? The trucking industry in Warren was for the ...

Something for every reader

Dear Editor, After reading this Saturday’s Forum articles, I wanted to express appreciation to those writers who contribute every week from light-hearted to serious to reminiscent. This week’s columns had something to please every reader. A special accolade to Ms. An Swanson, whom ...

Allegheny Valley school

Dear Editor, The school district has given away several schools for not much money. This is taxpayers’ money. If you want a facility for Clarendon VFW, start a fundraiser and donate. Be the chairman. Warren County people would donate. As for giving the school away, no. Jim Bailey, Warren

Brett Kavanaugh

Dear Editor, I wondered why the Democrats were so violently opposed to Brett Kavanaugh during his Senate hearings. It seemed, at least to me, that their opposition went well beyond the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford. Whether you do, or do not, support him or believe her, the story ...

Clarendon VFW

Dear Editor, There was a small fire in the HVAC unit at the Clarendon Veterans Club at 9:30 this morning (Thursday, Nov. 30), filling the club with smoke and soot. After the fire department gave the all-clear by 10:30, there was a large contingent of employees, members, veterans and not, ...

God’s prophet? Really?

Dear Editor, On Oct. 9, 1998, Rep. John Peterson voted to impeach President William Jefferson Clinton. He did have sexual relations with that woman, Miz Lewinski, and he lied about it. Looks like the congressman (and others) have changed their positions. He seems to think a lot about ...

Roundabout

Dear Editor, Blue Goose II. Warren (Worn) already is a roundabout. Everybody goes around it about his enterprise. Only business done here is in the toilet. The town square is a peg trying to fit into a round hole, whittling away far short of a well-rounded mark. To square the circle, not ...

Economic prosperity

Dear Editor, I found the op-ed by Mr. Nace in the November 21, 2018 edition of the TMO both intriguing and disingenuous — aka. a partial truth. Without a doubt, there is much good economic news across America, especially for the top 10% of holders of wealth. Clearly, unemployment levels ...

Surprise! NOT!

Dear Editor, Well, the (powers that be) have done it again! (Not as though we all didn’t know that was going to happen!) Unbelievable that even though it’s not needed, and the truckers don’t want it, and the general population that I have spoken to sees no need for it. Guess what? ...

Better nation?

Dear Editor, From my view, the foolishness of Democrats is killing our country. The first 5 socialist items on your list have a major indisputable math problem. They take more money to function than is available. Who is going to pay for those items? You decide someone has more than they ...

Congrats

Dear Editor, In this era of division from government, it took a group of young ladies from Warren to unite this small portion of our country. Thank you, Lady Dragons, for what you’ve accomplished — Without question, you had the support of the county, and I'm super proud of you ...

Puritanism

Dear Editor, H. L. Mencken’s words, “Puritanism: The haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy,” can easily be turned on its head to disparage another group such as people of a different political persuasion than you foster. This leads me to firstly say we need to ...

Bravo

Thank you Dear Editor, As board members of the Friends of the Warren Public Library, we thank the people who recently supported our Annual Book Sale. We sold many hardback, paperback, fiction, nonfiction, vintage, and children’s books. The money we earned from the sale goes directly to ...
