Letters To Editor

Roundabout

Dear Editor, Will it benefit the future? Warren has had a decline in traffic count at most major intersections in the past five years. No matter where you drive, life is not perfect, there will always be an occasion that someone makes a dumb mistake, a close call, an accident. A fatal ...

History is watching

Dear Editor, Elections truly matter. And the importance of these upcoming mid-term elections cannot be overstated, as the results will determine America’s path forward and serve to define the kind of nation we are to become. With the beginning of the Trump administration and the support ...

Protecting children

Dear Editor, It was with great horror and sadness that I read the article on October 16 regarding an area resident charged with the abuse of his 2-year old daughter. It was with the equal feeling that I read the October 18 article regarding an area priest who pleads guilty to two felonies: ...

Unprecedented resistance

Dear Editor, Since the 2016 election, I have written dozens of letters to the Editor—in my head, that is. Why didn’t I submit those letters? I was upset when Obama was elected so I understood the Democrats’ disappointment. Now, I know they will never get over the fact that the ...

Socialism, really?

Dear Editor, Reading Mr. Gustafson’s letter published on October 17 about socialism, I really have to agree with his statement “All socialistic programs are paid for with tax dollars and are inherently unfair”. I am, however, offended and appalled at his examples of socialism in our ...

Midterm elections

Dear Editor, I have been watching and listening to the political ads and commentary on TV and I am becoming increasingly disappointed in the political discourse of both the democrat and republican views. It seems that trying to find any candidate who wants to bring people together is a ...

Socialism?

Dear Editor, I liked Dr. Karen Black’s very intelligent response in Friday’s Readers Speak, but being a Jeff Foxworthy fan, I’d like to add my two cents! If you are a veteran receiving VA benefits, you may already be a ‘Socialist!’ If you are on Medicare or Medicaid, you may ...

Why school lunch got better — A 6th-grader’s point of view

Dear Editor, I am a sixth grader at Beaty-Warren Middle School, and I want to talk about how school lunch recently got better. Our congressman, GT Thompson, co-sponsored a bill that would amend the law governing the national school lunch program. This law would allow schools that ...

Pray for our church

Dear Editor, I grew up in another religion and, at eighteen, I chose my life’s religion. Many objections from people and family – but I had the freedom to choose at eighteen-years-old. At nine-years-old, I visited the Roman Catholic church with a friend. I absolutely loved the ...

Free range chickens

Dear Editor, Yes, the baby chick that appeared in the Saturday, Oct. 6, paper was cute, and that’s great for people wanting eggs, but our experience as a neighbor is very negative! They aren’t confined to their yard and are always in our yard. They have destroyed our landscape, flowers ...

Immigration

Dear Editor, Syndicated columnist Dr. Walter Williams is an economics professor and distinguished affiliated scholar at George Mason University. In his column, “Immigrants and Disease,” he cited more facts opposing ‘open border’ advocacy. A few follow: The Immigration & ...

South Pacific

Dear Editor, The Warren Players presentation of South Pacific brings back wonderful memories. My wife and I met as cast members of the Players’ staging of South Pacific in 1967. Though our lives have taken us far from Warren and the Beaty School stage, our year with Warren Players ...

Volunteer instructors needed

Dear Editor, We know that NWPA residents believe in the importance of investing in the community, and they are generous with their time and efforts. We’d like to share information about volunteer instructor opportunities. Across Pennsylvania, there are organizations that help adults ...

President Trump: Let’s keep winning, don’t fire Mueller

Dear Editor, In many ways, President Donald J. Trump is the best thing to happen to the GOP in recent memory. He’s energized our base and brought new voters into the Republican fold. He’s advocated a bold agenda. Because of his policies, our economy is growing at a record pace. He ...

Breezing in and out

Dear Editor, It angers me once again to see a candidate (Scott Wagner) come to Warren, PA — unannounced, speak to his cronies in the Republican committee and breeze out again without any other citizens able to meet and greet him! This has happened with Toomey and Glenn Thompson over the ...

Character counts

Dear Editor, With these crucial mid-term elections looming, I wanted to take this opportunity to help all candidates running for public office to understand what they must do to earn my vote. First and foremost, you must demonstrate a solid understanding of the fact that if you are ...

United Nations

Dear Editor, Today revealed, not only the character but the personality of Donald J. Trump with his remarks to the United Nations. However, an opprobrious and self-delusion aspect, for which he has been noted — prior to his current reality show — shall eventually elevate him to one our ...

Sheffield Rod & Gun Club

Dear Editor, The Board of the Sheffield Rod and Gun Club held their monthly meeting on September 25th and chose to revoke the memberships of The Well-Armed Women. This decision may have been made solely by the President, but it became a collective decision of the board when other board ...

Tax ‘choice’

Dear Editor, “There is a choice of supporting public education, but it comes with the cost of the taxes and the possibility of losing a home for some.” — Governor Tom Wolf, Press Conference, May 2015 Tax “choice.” We the taxpayers can now choose! Invest in public education or ...

Fear and money

Dear Editor, My anger is making it very difficult to construct a coherent opening paragraph. I’m quite sure that after the letter is sent I will imagine the perfect way to express my plea to remove fear and money from the Catholic Church. The machine of the Catholic Church has been ...
