Letters To Editor

Warren Generating Station

Dear Editor, The Thursday, October 24 paper had two front-page articles about our Warren County environment. The column on the Trails at Jakes Rocks (TAJR) noted the trail is now rated the number one mountain bike trail in Pennsylvania. Warren County Visitors Bureau Executive Director Dave ...

‘Let the board do what it must’

Dear Editor, I attended the school board committee meeting on Monday, October 21 and the majority of the meeting was spent on sports and whether to consolidate or not. This issue arises each year, sometimes each season and it is always the same story. The district does not have enough ...

‘A virus’

Dear Editor, Aside from the current political discourse on divergent subjects, it’s evident that, for the past few years, a new virulent and insidious virus has permeated the oval office in Washington, DC. It’s described as untruthfulness and a certain degree of incompetence with ...

Generating station

Dear Editor, The comment period for the Warren Generating Station power discharge into the Allegheny River in Starbrick has been extended from October 14th to the 29th. I oppose permitting Warren Generating Station power plant on Route 6 in Conewango Township in Warren County the ...

‘Hallucinatory Economics’

Dear Editor, The September 4th editorial clearly identified the dangers of Bernie Sanders energy policies, if he won the presidency. The weakened economy would impose hardships on American households. It’d also weaken our ability to fund a strong military. That invites aggression from ...

Starbrick traffic light

Dear Editor, My letter to the editor is not one of complaint, but one of gratitude. Last month, I was training with my O&M instructor through Bureau of Blindness and Visual Services on trailing safely so that I may go fishing at the boat launch in Starbrick. As we approached the ...

Promoting Warren

Dear Editor, Warren County Chamber of Business and Industry recently released a great video of “Welcome to Warren.” We are fortunate to have some strong events that we rally around and celebrate with the broader region. Often, family and graduation reunions are in full swing when ...

Climate change

Dear Editor, Although I’m no climate change expert, actually far from it, I did some research and found some interesting things. One needs to go online and look up a map of the amount of aircraft, and ships, on the globe at “any instantaneous moment”. The quantities of each, on these ...

Power of the people

Dear Editor, As of 10/19, our rights as citizens have been violated on a consistent basis. Our government for we the people is and has been influenced by money that creates power. Therefore, our elected officials that govern our once great country is not and has not been us people since ...

The turning point?

Dear Editor, Although in January of 2017 Mr. Trump swore and oath to selflessly put his own interests aside in order to serve a greater cause — “to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” and to serve our great nation and all of its citizens — it has ...

A time for choosing

Dear Editor, After reading an op-ed by David Bossie of Citizens United, I agree with what he said: A Reagan speech 55 years ago titled “A Time for Choosing” compared big government v. individual liberty and capitalism v. socialism. He chided Democrats for claiming “they’re going ...

Impeachment

Dear Editor, I thoroughly disagree with the suggestions of the Opinion writer in the Friday, September 27th Times Observer! We live in a democracy where clandestine, backroom meetings and secret machinations are not allowed by law. I absolutely protest the turning upside down of the ...

The invisible

Dear Editor, What do these numbers mean to you 6-8, 10-12, 14-16, and 5, 6X, 7-8, 10-12? Go shopping at the local grocery store. Order a meal. Purchase the latest fashions at a nice store. Go about your normal life. There are no people living in poverty. Drive by a food pantry or a ...

Climate

Dear Editor, I do tend to write a letter now and then not flattering to the idiot in chief. Responses to those letters are usually ridiculed at local establishments from Trump fans, but I am a big boy and at least I do it publicly for all to see. Now I have a challenge to all Trump fans ...

Vote for someone else then

Dear Editor, I’m wondering why the letters to the editor in this newspaper seem to be so overwhelmingly anti-Trump. I believe President Trump won the 2016 election in Warren County by a substantial margin and yet the vast majority of the letters appear to be penned by very intelligent, ...

Ship of State

Dear Editor, The word “government” as we know it today is derived from the Greek word “kubern’o”; meaning to “steer” or “guide” as well as “drive” or “direct”. Regardless of specific opinions, I think it’s safe to say most people would agree that those ...

Enforcing the rules

Dear Editor, I read the 9/17 Times Observer article “Park & Lie” and just ended up very confused by the decision that was ultimately made. Chief Deppen is quoted as saying that the handheld units used by parking staff show which zone users select. If my vehicle is parked in the ...

Our Opinion: Why not? Adopting modern methods for voting

Even though it sometimes feels like it would have to move faster just to reach glacial pace, Pennsylvania’s election system is slowly moving into the 21st century. Beginning Monday, voters now have an online option to apply for an absentee ballot (www.votespa.com/applyabsentee). The ...

Readers Speak

NRA Dear Editor, I, for one, would be very appreciative if any news agency would publish a picture of the NRA membership card for any of the mass shooters. Even a picture of their hunting license might be sufficient. The NRA, with millions of members, is not the terrorist organization ...

Lies or delusions?

Dear Editor, So, Mr. Trump has reportedly made at least 12,000 demonstrably false or misleading claims during the course of his presidency thus far, which is truly quite an unprecedented achievement. In addition, he has never acknowledged the fallacy of any of these claims nor admitted to ...
