Letters To Editor

Putin

Dear Editor, Marika. Smart. Successful business woman. Successful business owner. DJ’s wife. From Czechoslovakia. As a young girl, she watched the Soviet tanks roll into Prague in 1968. And the family wanted out. They feigned a vacation trip. Split up hoping at least 2 would ...

Roundabout: Ill-advised

Dear Editor, As a taxpaying citizen of Warren who navigates the intersection in question on a daily basis, I was appalled that the roundabout issue was “settled” by such a close vote. I had every hope that sanity would prevail. This issue most certainly should be submitted before the ...

Roundabout: Kudos to the Warren City Council

Dear Editor, I greatly appreciate the leadership and forethought that the Warren City Council put into their roundabout decision. I particularly commend Mayor Cashman for his ability to rise above the misinformation and hysteria surrounding this issue and help guide the community to a ...

PennDOT speed cameras

Dear Editor, The safety argument for speed cameras has been debunked. Studies have shown speed camera areas having an increase in crashes or the cameras had no effect. In the UK, a substantial increase in crashes was seen due to panic braking. Act 86 of 2018 puts speed cameras on ...

Roundabout

Dear Editor, With all the excitement circulating around Penna. Ave. and Market Street, I thought one more series of comments wouldn’t hurt a bit. I recently read in the WTO that a poll was conducted and a majority favored a roundabout over a traffic signal. Sorry, but I must have been ...

‘Hitting the nail’

Dear Editor, My hat is off to the readers that addressed the proposed round-a-bout in the Wednesday, February 20 edition of the Readers Speak. Talk about hitting the nail on the head. I especially admire Christian Zavinski for having the backbone to swing the hammer. My opinion has long ...

Trump

Dear Editor, Putin today threatened the US with nuclear repercussions; he had to protect his nation’s assets which are Donald Trump! By the way, the roundabout is a joke. Jack Landers, USN, Sheffield

Not so fast

Dear Editor, Whether it be those crazy liberal Blues or them insane conservative Reds, one would hope that where we inhabit, our Earth, would be one thing all could agree on. Seriously, everyone should want to keep it in good shape. Keep it running smoothly. Allowing it to provide us ...

And a-round we go

Dear Editor, Hey, Warren, it looks like another bad command decision has been made for the good residents of the Warren community by a council that listened to our concerns and three concerned ones voted no to having an unneeded roundabout in the middle of town, and three apparently deaf ...

Vote

Dear Editor, The will of the people has been ignored. Not only was it ignored, it was done so blatantly and arrogantly to our faces. We were told, in a round-about way, that we don’t know what we’re talking about. In typical government fashion, we were told that “they” know what ...

Roundabout decision

Dear Editor, It’s more clear now why the Christians were fed to the lions. This is not sour grapes, but wine gone sour. So, to drink or not to drink? Always a choice, John L. Erickson, Warren

In the headlines

Dear Editor, I wanted to comment on a few issues that have been in the headlines for several weeks. First, I am deeply troubled by the rise of socialism/Marxism in our country. Do we not remember the millions of people enslaved by the various forms of these totalitarian systems? Why ...

Be damned

Dear Editor, Common sense, people’s choice, recommendations of big businesses, aiding the walking population, a financial burden on the people, and just all around in my opinion the right thing to do be damned! The powers that be in this “city” really know how to rake us over the ...

Recreation

Dear Editor, Our highways are dangerous enough with all the distractions and substance abuse behind the wheel. To list a few: texting; dumb/smartphone; putting on make-up; driving while intoxicated; driving while under the influence; eating &/or drinking; speeding; road rage, and the ...

New York’s abortion law

Dear Editor, It’s official, in New York state a dog has more rights than a beating heart, fully developed, unborn baby. On January 22, 2019, New York passed a law which will allow abortion up to the ninth month of pregnancy. New York is now controlled by Democrats, and with a ...

A statistical analysis

Dear Editor, The decision is scheduled for next Warren City Council board meeting, Monday, February 18, 2019. at 7 p.m. I have no background to support any data found on the Internet and this is a personal opinion. This is a synopsis of; The Roundabout in Waterford, Pa., was one of their ...

Trucks & roundabouts

Dear Editor, There are very serious truck traffic considerations that must be included in the city of Warren’s roundabout discussion. 1. Building a roundabout so that trucks can just squeeze through is not acceptable. It must be large and it’s very obvious that unless an ...

Shaking things up

Dear Editor, Trump’s promises and policies reflect reactionary, economic nationalist, Steve Bannon, Trump’s campaign chief executive, August-November 2016, who wanted to “shake up the GOP” for years. “I want to crush down everything and destroy all of today’s establishment. ...

City and state officials

Dear Editor, Just like our present Administration and all of our federal government’s finances, our state and city leaders are out of touch with reality concerning the cost of this roundabout. We are not living in the ’70s. With the exception of the one percent of citizens, we only buy ...

Lessons to learn

Dear Editor, The partial government shutdown is over, at least temporarily. As it ended, Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said, “hopefully, now, the president has learned his lesson.” This ridiculous statement only shows why Schumer and house speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) are ...
