Letters To Editor

Flood maps

Dear Editor, This letter concerns the article in the April 11th paper concerning the ANF and USACE agreements. I was absolutely shocked to read that the USACE flood inundation maps, showing the levels of flooding if there was a catastrophic failure of the Kinzua Dam, cannot be disclosed ...

‘Kudos’ to voting no

Dear Editor, Poor Bob Mueller! He’d shown such promise. He could’ve made the cover of Rolling Stone and Been New York Times ‘Man of the Year.’ Alas! He blew it. How? His investigation found no evidence of collusion. Trump haters are furious but still owe Muller some gratitude. ...

Global warming

Dear Editor, The Today Show on NBC recently aired a series with Al Roker in Alaska discussing global warming and its effect on indigenous populations. I wondered about Mr. Roker’s qualifications to promote this theory. It turns out that Mr. Roker does not have a degree in Meteorology or ...

Climate change analogies

Dear Editor, You’re walking down the street when you come upon a man lying before you bleeding profusely. You ask what happened and he says, “I’ve had an accident and I’ve cut myself, I fear I’m bleeding out!” Your response as you continue to stare down at the man is, “I see! ...

Dog Bite Prevention Week

Dear Editor, In April, the United States Postal Service annually promotes National Dog Bite Prevention Week. I am writing to ask our customers to take notice of this annual campaign to help the Postal Service eliminate dangerous and costly dog attacks. Pet owners’ efforts are critical ...

June 24, 1919 — 2019 — 3019

Dear Editor, Congress approved the 19th Amendment on June 24, 1919. The 19th Amendment guarantees to women the right to vote. The proposed Amendment thereafter had to be approved by 36 state legislatures. On August 18, 1920, the Tennessee State Legislature became the 36th state to ...

Child abuse prevention

Dear Editor, During National Child Abuse Prevention Month in April, CASA of Warren and Forest counties challenges our local residents to stand against child abuse and take action to support children who have been abused or neglected. From July 1, 2017, to June 30, 2018, 10 local children ...

Child abuse prevention

Dear Editor, During National Child Abuse Prevention Month in April, CASA of Warren and Forest counties challenges our local residents to stand against child abuse and take action to support children who have been abused or neglected. From July 1, 2017, to June 30, 2018, 10 local children ...

Religious intolerance

Dear Editor, Knowing full well that the first Muslim representative was being sworn into the PA House, Rep. Stephanie Borowicz (clearly not a “representative”) went off on an Evangelical Christian tirade during an opening prayer. She was immediately condemned by her colleagues for her ...

Presidential ‘pardon’

Dear Editor, Special Prosecutor Muellers’ report did not charge Donald J. Trump with collusion or conspiracy with a foreign government — thank God — nor did it exonerate him. The full report will be interesting to read. I’ve followed Trumps’ presidency with a laser focus. It ...

‘Anti-female votes’

Dear Editor, As Women’s History Month 2019 ends, I find it appalling that the final week of March saw Congresspersons Glenn Thompson and Mike Kelly voted against HR 7, which would expand federal laws from barring employers from paying women less than their male colleagues for the same ...

‘Round-a-bout’

Dear Editor, Now that Robert Mueller is done, couldn’t he be pulled in on the “Round-a-bout”? Maybe there is collusion someplace – and he could uncover it. It seems that – mainly - those against it are writing “Letters to the Editor” every day. That sure smells like ...

Gun violence

Dear Editor, Well there you go, people. New Zealand’s leaders just showed us how it’s done. Just days, [less than a week] after a mass shooting, in two places of worship, their leaders took action to stop future attacks. They banned all military grade weapons that were used in the ...

Electric bikes

Dear Editor, While I respect the efforts of wilderness groups to preserve nature, I find their arguments regarding the dangers of electric mountain bikes to be somewhat alarmist and incomplete. I have been hiking and mountain biking and motorcycling for over forty years, and invariably I ...

About the great wall!

Dear Editor, About the great wall! Forget it. By watching a documentary on YouTube of Ellis Island, its function and recent restoration for $165,000,000, let us think of inviting the Mexicans to cooperate on an ‘underground railroad’ system by use of cruise ships and immigration ...

Market Street Merry-Go-Round

Dear Editor, I have resisted, to this point, but can’t help adding my own thoughts on the controversial topic of the round- about to be constructed at Market St. and Penn Ave. This intersection was redesigned and rebuilt a number of years ago, primarily to accommodate truck traffic ...

I agree

Dear Editor, Barbara L. Boger’s letters about the roundabout could not have said it any better. I agree with everything she said. This roundabout is going to give our town a major traffic disaster! It alone with the Liberty and Pa. Ave. will send even more traffic over 3rd, 4th, and ...

Like Sand Through An Hour Glass

Dear Editor, For anyone following the saga of this Roundabout, it’s clear that it’s evoked a lot of emotion from the citizens of this community. We’ve got letters from citizens every day pointing out every conceivable reason why we shouldn’t have it. We’ve got council members ...

Roundabout

Dear Editor, It would appear that Warren County has reached the state of the union of the rest of the country. I don’t know about you, but lately when I’ve considered the chaotic condition of the country, I have always found solace in the solid workings of our county’s institutions, ...

Roundabout

Dear Editor, First of all, I am sorry for the loss of Phil Gilbert’s father. BUT he keeps comparing this roundabout to Waterford and there is no similarity at all. Waterford’s roundabout is not smack dab in the middle of the busiest intersection in town! Did he not listen to the ...
