Letters To Editor

Readers Speak

Better students of our motives Dear Editor, I am grateful for this forum where readers can openly and freely share opinions, and find the variety interesting. There is also opportunity to respond in the paper or, if one knows the party, in person. Debating the points can be ...

Meritocracy-Not

Dear Editor, Talent is distributed evenly but opportunities are not. If an American inherited wealth, was Caucasian, was the product of generations of stable family life, and was male, he would — in the game of life — be born on base or perhaps have runs already on the scoreboard. Can ...

Readers Speak

Opportunities not even Dear Editor, Talent is distributed evenly but opportunities are not. If an American inherited wealth, was Caucasian, was the product of generations of stable family life, and was male, he would — in the game of life — be born or perhaps have runs already on the ...

Readers Speak

Entitled or rudeness? Dear Editor, Neither. On 3/21/18, I walked in to a local BBQ restaurant and paid for an order that I had called in earlier for pick up. I was a little early so I had to wait for my food when 3 vehicles pulled up with men from the Refinery that are here to work ...

In response

Dear Editor, First, I agree with Lou Dussia about another hotel in Warren. Another hotel is most likely not needed. And Warren County should not pay for another hotel; let the owners pay for their hotel! Also, about the prostitute who has been in the news lately. We should investigate how ...

Gettysburg

Dear Editor, I greatly appreciated Josh Cotton’s moving description of the historical sentiment that engulfs Gettysburg (Diversions, March 3). Though I don’t do detailed research, I have read Stars In Their Courses and wept profoundly at the movie, Gettysburg, both gifts from my son’s ...

Tracy Ridge

Dear Editor, In the 513,000 acres of the Allegheny National Forest (ANF), nearly 10,000 on Tracy Ridge are among the most suitable for wilderness designation by the U.S. Congress. A 2006 U.S. Forest Service study was completed confirming this. The proposed bicycle use for the Tracy Ridge ...

Priorities

Dear Editor, My President recently touted his desire to take care of our military...”Most importantly, got $700 Billion to rebuild our Military, $716 Billion next year...most ever. Had to waste money on Dem giveaways in order to take care of military pay increase and new equipment.” ...

Reclaiming our Democracy legislation

Dear Editor, Much has been in the media and minds of voters regarding the PA legislative redistricting. The PA and Warren County League of Women Voters continues to support House Bills 722 and Senate Bill 22 which amends the PA Constitution for a permanent change in how legislative ...

Hotel

Dear Editor, I think most of us know that taxes are too high and would love to see them lowered. We need the services that taxes provide, but too much is being funded by taxes. Does Warren truly need another hotel? If Warren could truly support another hotel, don’t you think that some hotel ...

Losing to Jamestown

Dear Editor, First, let me ask, wasn’t there already a “study” done about a hotel on Clark Street that said we didn’t have the capacity to fill it and it wouldn’t be a feasible project? Next, if we are (losing people to Jamestown), I would love to have someone go talk to ALL the ...

Judiciary impeachment

Dear Editor, To the GOP lawmakers who think trying to impeach judges is OK, because they made a decision with which you disagree: How dare you attack our democracy and the Constitution upon which it is based? We have three independent branches of government for a reason, not the least of ...

“Legacy?”

Dear Editor, What is your legacy, your slice of time in contribution to be remembered by? Well, Warren(Worn)’s continues downward with so-called remodeling, creating tin-can houses (metal roofs, aluminum-vinyl siding), mismatched to none millwork, stonework, image of graveyards, and ...

In response

Dear Editor, The conclusion expressed in the last paragraph of Walter Williams column of Wednesday, March 7, Times Observer, has been repeated thousands of times in numerous publications and uncounted times within minds of millions of people, but have you seen one basic solution offered or ...

Power grid vulnerability

Dear Editor, Approximately 8 years, ago my husband and I toured the Spy Museum during a visit to Washington, DC. We thought it would be kind of fun. However, it really was quite disturbing especially when we started into the last room before the exit. The exhibits in the room explored the ...

Hotel

Dear Editor, Is the proposed hotel on the waterfront a good idea? Can we fill a another one? Will the taxpayers see a return on the 1.4 million dollar investment the city wants to spend? Will the hotel public private investment become another debacle since one was proposed for the waterfront ...

On kids’ threats in school

Dear Editor, My only question to these kids that are either making threats in schools or are doing threatening actions is this: WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH YOU? You do not realize the damage that you are doing to yourselves, your family, your friendships, your class and your teachers. ...

Positive step for tourism

The Allegheny National Forest Visitors Bureau, the official Destination Marketing Organization for McKean County, Pennsylvania, recommends the 2017- Decision Notice for the Tracy Ridge Shared Use Trails and Forest Plan Amendment Project move forward to allow mountain biking on the 12.5-mile ...

Bravo!

Dear Editor, To the Eisenhower Percussion Ensemble, directed by Mr. Mark Napolitan and Mr. Kegan McCrea, for their amazing concert on Thursday, March 9th, 2018. Their practice of the past three months on Saturdays payed off in a big way. We enjoyed a truly entertaining showcase of talent ...

Allegheny Valley

Dear Editor, The attempt by Clarendon Borough to acquire the former Allegheny Valley School is a win-win for the entire area. The acquisition will prevent the building from falling into disrepair, but more important is the Borough’s plan to lease the property to the Clarendon VFW Post ...
