Letters To Editor

City council approves roundabout

Dear Editor, I was not surprised the roundabout was chosen. Mayor Cashman states everyone he talked to is in favor of the roundabout — it’s time to move into the 22nd Century, says the mayor. Who is the everyone who wants the roundabout? The trucking industry in Warren was for the ...

Something for every reader

Dear Editor, After reading this Saturday’s Forum articles, I wanted to express appreciation to those writers who contribute every week from light-hearted to serious to reminiscent. This week’s columns had something to please every reader. A special accolade to Ms. An Swanson, whom ...

Allegheny Valley school

Dear Editor, The school district has given away several schools for not much money. This is taxpayers’ money. If you want a facility for Clarendon VFW, start a fundraiser and donate. Be the chairman. Warren County people would donate. As for giving the school away, no. Jim Bailey, Warren

Brett Kavanaugh

Dear Editor, I wondered why the Democrats were so violently opposed to Brett Kavanaugh during his Senate hearings. It seemed, at least to me, that their opposition went well beyond the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford. Whether you do, or do not, support him or believe her, the story ...

Clarendon VFW

Dear Editor, There was a small fire in the HVAC unit at the Clarendon Veterans Club at 9:30 this morning (Thursday, Nov. 30), filling the club with smoke and soot. After the fire department gave the all-clear by 10:30, there was a large contingent of employees, members, veterans and not, ...

God’s prophet? Really?

Dear Editor, On Oct. 9, 1998, Rep. John Peterson voted to impeach President William Jefferson Clinton. He did have sexual relations with that woman, Miz Lewinski, and he lied about it. Looks like the congressman (and others) have changed their positions. He seems to think a lot about ...

Roundabout

Dear Editor, Blue Goose II. Warren (Worn) already is a roundabout. Everybody goes around it about his enterprise. Only business done here is in the toilet. The town square is a peg trying to fit into a round hole, whittling away far short of a well-rounded mark. To square the circle, not ...

Economic prosperity

Dear Editor, I found the op-ed by Mr. Nace in the November 21, 2018 edition of the TMO both intriguing and disingenuous — aka. a partial truth. Without a doubt, there is much good economic news across America, especially for the top 10% of holders of wealth. Clearly, unemployment levels ...

Surprise! NOT!

Dear Editor, Well, the (powers that be) have done it again! (Not as though we all didn’t know that was going to happen!) Unbelievable that even though it’s not needed, and the truckers don’t want it, and the general population that I have spoken to sees no need for it. Guess what? ...

Better nation?

Dear Editor, From my view, the foolishness of Democrats is killing our country. The first 5 socialist items on your list have a major indisputable math problem. They take more money to function than is available. Who is going to pay for those items? You decide someone has more than they ...

Congrats

Dear Editor, In this era of division from government, it took a group of young ladies from Warren to unite this small portion of our country. Thank you, Lady Dragons, for what you’ve accomplished — Without question, you had the support of the county, and I'm super proud of you ...

Puritanism

Dear Editor, H. L. Mencken’s words, “Puritanism: The haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy,” can easily be turned on its head to disparage another group such as people of a different political persuasion than you foster. This leads me to firstly say we need to ...

Bravo

Thank you Dear Editor, As board members of the Friends of the Warren Public Library, we thank the people who recently supported our Annual Book Sale. We sold many hardback, paperback, fiction, nonfiction, vintage, and children’s books. The money we earned from the sale goes directly to ...

Caravan

Dear Editor, The United States is being invaded. Think that 7,000 individuals of unknown history crossing our border uninvited is not an “Invasion”? My good old Websters Dictionary reads, “to invade is 1. To enter forcibly or hostilely. 2. To crowd into. 3. To intrude upon; infringe ...

Our amazing library

Dear Editor, I am writing this letter to say thank you to all of the employees of the Warren Public Library who make it such a fantastic and integral part of our community and also to ensure readers are aware of what a phenomenal resource we have in downtown Warren. I have participated ...

Borrowing philosophy

Dear Editor, After observing months of savaging President Donald Trump by the liberals, the “talking heads,” self-styled psycho-analysts (local and national), Pelosi, Biden, Cuomo, et. al., may I borrow some philosophy from one of America’s earlier distinguished humorists? Slightly ...

‘Ominous Historical Parallels’

Dear Editor, Why Donald Trump is often compared to Adolf Hitler: Hitler was a Nationalist. Donald Trump claims he is a Nationalist. Hitler came to power by constitutional means, elected under a democratic government. Trump came to power by constitutional means, elected under a ...

Hickory Street Bridge

Dear Editor, Being born in Warren and staying informed of what my hometown is doing, I would suggest that the renaming of the Hickory Street Bridge might include all sides of the name issue. There is a Veterans Memorial Statue on site. Renaming the bridge “The Hickory Street Veterans ...

Ash trees

To the editor, I am referring to the article in the Oct. 25 issue of the Warren Times Observer about the request of the Warren County School District to the U.S. Forest Service to cut all of the ash trees on the ANF before they die or are attacked by the emerald ash borer. It shouldn’t ...

Wake up!

Dear Editor, What just happened in our country on Oct. 24 and 25? Two former presidents, Trump’s presidential opponent, a former vice president, a former attorney general, a former head of the CIA, a current member of Congress and two civilian critics of the president were targeted for ...
