Letters To Editor

Volunteer instructors needed

Dear Editor, We know that NWPA residents believe in the importance of investing in the community, and they are generous with their time and efforts. We’d like to share information about volunteer instructor opportunities. Across Pennsylvania, there are organizations that help adults ...

President Trump: Let’s keep winning, don’t fire Mueller

Dear Editor, In many ways, President Donald J. Trump is the best thing to happen to the GOP in recent memory. He’s energized our base and brought new voters into the Republican fold. He’s advocated a bold agenda. Because of his policies, our economy is growing at a record pace. He ...

Breezing in and out

Dear Editor, It angers me once again to see a candidate (Scott Wagner) come to Warren, PA — unannounced, speak to his cronies in the Republican committee and breeze out again without any other citizens able to meet and greet him! This has happened with Toomey and Glenn Thompson over the ...

Character counts

Dear Editor, With these crucial mid-term elections looming, I wanted to take this opportunity to help all candidates running for public office to understand what they must do to earn my vote. First and foremost, you must demonstrate a solid understanding of the fact that if you are ...

United Nations

Dear Editor, Today revealed, not only the character but the personality of Donald J. Trump with his remarks to the United Nations. However, an opprobrious and self-delusion aspect, for which he has been noted — prior to his current reality show — shall eventually elevate him to one our ...

Sheffield Rod & Gun Club

Dear Editor, The Board of the Sheffield Rod and Gun Club held their monthly meeting on September 25th and chose to revoke the memberships of The Well-Armed Women. This decision may have been made solely by the President, but it became a collective decision of the board when other board ...

Tax ‘choice’

Dear Editor, “There is a choice of supporting public education, but it comes with the cost of the taxes and the possibility of losing a home for some.” — Governor Tom Wolf, Press Conference, May 2015 Tax “choice.” We the taxpayers can now choose! Invest in public education or ...

Fear and money

Dear Editor, My anger is making it very difficult to construct a coherent opening paragraph. I’m quite sure that after the letter is sent I will imagine the perfect way to express my plea to remove fear and money from the Catholic Church. The machine of the Catholic Church has been ...

In response

Dear Editor, I’ve been reflecting on the contents of Mr. Jeffery L. Carlson’s letter of September 19, and some of his points need comment. Of course, a lot has happened in the Kavanaugh case in the past week, and it is no longer possible to sustain the illusion that this is the ...

UN speech

Dear Editor, Much is being made about some laughter during the President’s speech at the UN on Tuesday. Watching the speech, I found the laughter to be in response to the immediate “in your face” nature of his opening, which accompanies most things Trump. The President boasted that ...

Northwest Bank

Dear Editor, I sincerely appreciate the wonderful coverage that the Warren Times Observer provided on my retirement from Northwest Bank after 34 years. However, I believe much more needs to be told about the Northwest story and the individuals who were instrumental in the success of our ...

Roundabout

Dear Editor, I would like to say “thank you” to James Foringer for writing the comprehensive article, “Why roundabouts? PennDOT says safety,” on today’s (Tuesday) editorial page. Mr. Foringer cited several features designed into a roundabout option that enhance pedestrian ...

Great Recession

Dear Editor, This week is the 10-year anniversary of the Great Recession. I am reviewing what has changed in the intervening years…thankfully President Obama chose a slow and steady approach to get America back to stability with TARP funds after many banks, mortgage and investment ...

#MeToo

Dear Editor, Me Too tactics have been used against Trump falsely over consensual relationships since before the creation of the organization. Now they are after Brett Kavanaugh over an anonymous letter, requesting no transparency as to who she is or what happened back in high school. ...

Roundabout in 2049

Dear Editor, Here are two possible scenarios from 30 years in the future regarding the future of the Market Street/Pennsylvania Avenue intersection. First scenario: It is the year 2049. You and a friend are standing at the intersection admiring the roundabout that was built in 2019. ...

In response

Dear Editor, This is in response to a letter published 9-12-18 in the editorial page, titled NFL players. It is a total fabrication and a falsehood that President Trump is somehow trampling on the Constitution by noting his disdain for kneeling NFL players. This is simply the bile of the ...

Job well done

Dear Editor, To all who took part in the safety fair at Lowes in Warren today... a job well done! Everyone who took the time to explain what they do and to demonstrate the equipment they use in their jobs. The demonstrations with the Hurst tool and letting the children put out the ...

‘Super band’

Dear Editor, I'm writing in response to your article about the marching band consolidation. My dad, Mark Napolitan, is the band director for Eisenhower's band. I've spent almost my entire life watching the evolution of these four different marching bands, and I, myself, have spent the last ...

Roundabout

Dear Editor, Thank you for informing the reader who missed the Wednesday meeting, as I, about the Pennsylvania and Market Street intersection study and proposals. I have had a sincere interest in the subject of the “roundabout” and want to let my thoughts be known. In my travels ...

Senator McCain

Dear Editor, A distinguished United States Senator, statesman, and Viet Nam war Naval fighter pilot, who suffered serious injury and subsequent torture at the hands of North Viet Nam passed into history, but his legacy remains. Donald J. Trump had the insolence to state that Senator ...
