Letters To Editor

Roundabout vote

Dear Editor, Mr. Lewis was not alone in his protest. The article in the 3-18-2019 edition of the Times Observer, “Lewis cites conflict of interest in roundabout vote,” did not include the information that several citizens were present in the gallery during the meeting; some had come ...

Benefits of roundabout?

Dear Editor, What exactly are the benefits of this roundabout? Spending “free monty” on something unsafe for our city pedestrians? Councilman Phil Gilbert, sympathies in the loss of your father. Your view on the roundabout is understandable. But... please look at the broader picture ...

Turnabout & potholes

Dear Editor, When I first heard they want to put a turnabout in Warren, my initial reaction was they are crazy. Then I saw a picture of the proposed site and changed my mind to insane! You still have people in Warren that don’t know you can turn right on a red light, much less what a ...

Concerned citizen makes news

Dear Editor, A big hats off to Storm Sivak for dragging Warren County into some climate change awareness. Unfortunate Mr. Sivak had no company but he and others of his generation are now and will be, making decisions and taking action to address climate change. Most of us readily agree 1 ...

Climate change

Dear Editor, I respect the student protester’s right to state his view about climate change. But I disagree with your reporter that the student’s views were “well-researched.” 97% of NASA scientists do not agree that we have 12 years before the effects of climate change become ...

Roundabout vote

Dear Editor, It was bound to happen right? A letter to the editor from a council member who voted for the roundabout. Well, here it is. In late 2004 my dad was traveling through Waterford and was involved in a motorcycle accident. He died just minutes after impact. In fact, I met the ...

Climate change protest

Dear Editor, Bravo to Mr. Storm Sivak for taking a stand for something he believes in. Climate change is a real issue and something younger generations need to be aware of. They must speak out for a change in the way we are living our lives. Letters to the Editor have proven a majority of ...

Lock her up

Dear Editor, In response to the letter of Gary Widell in the Times Observer March 15. Bravo! Exactly the message of my previous letter. Pillory Hillary over that personal server. It was legal? Illegal? It was irresponsible. Dangerous. Stupid even. Was it four investigations into ...

Interesting times

Dear Editor, The recent (3/14) “Our Opinion” entitled “A Recipe for a Trump Reelection” stated that the “ultra-leftist fringe” within the Democratic Party is a threat to their prospects for regaining the presidency in 2020 due to their pursuit of policies which “could be ...

Time changes

Dear Editor, Once again, we just experienced the “spring forward” change to Daylight Savings Time. Unfortunately, the change also brings a slew of people whining about the change. More people probably whine about the spring change, where we “lose” one hour, than whine about the ...

In response

Dear Editor, Just after reading James Spangler’s letter in Wednesday’s Times Observer, I went online for the latest news, and what should come up but an article headed “Ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page admitted under oath Obama’s DOJ ordered no charges against Hillary.” This conflicts ...

Best voting system

Dear Editor, This Thursday is a very important day in Warren County. As the Times Observer noted a few weeks back, the County Commissioners’ Elections Office will be demonstrating election systems and wants your input on what the county should invest in (Warren Public Library’s ...

Beyond reality

Dear Editor, The greatest threat to this nation is the national debt, which is beyond reality. The next greatest threat is clearly the anti-American socialist racist obstructionist hating lying leaking liberals. To them, a wall is immoral, however, trimester abortions right up to birth are ...

‘E-bikes’

Dear Editor, A rapidly growing threat to public safety on our hiking trails — particularly for our vulnerable young children and elderly hikers — has emerged. Motorized mountain bikes, or “e-bikes,” have exploded in popularity in recent years. In 2016, Ken Miner, Director of ...

Roundabout

Dear Editor, No roundabout! A bad idea! Bad for pedestrians, bad for truckers, bad for taxpayers! There is not one person with whom I have spoken who thinks this is a good idea for the intersection of Market Street and Pennsylvania Ave. in Warren. Done deal or not — undo it! Please ...

First responders – health help

Dear Editor, I highly commend The Warren County Memorial Park “911 Memorial Service.” The field of flags, the upright Twin Towers steel beams, the oratorical tributes to our local first responders: policemen, fire fighting personnel (volunteers), et al, all part of a worthy tribute to ...

Auditor General

Dear Editor, In recent news stories, both in Erie and in the Warren Times Observer, our Elections Department was sighted in reference to a report by the Auditor General in which his office accused numerous elections departments in the state of receiving gifts from election companies and ...

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 ...
