Letters To Editor

Support of a benefit

Dear Editor, We would like to thank all the businesses and individuals for the support in the benefit of Avaya Riel and family. Lori Steber, Russell

Reply

Dear Editor, In her letter of August 24, Karen Black misquoted me. She said I expressed my discomfort with the inability of the traditional media to control the narrative any longer. In fact, I said, “Many in the old-line media are frustrated by no longer being able to control the ...

In response

Dear Editor, I read with interest Gary Widell’s well-written letter of August 21 on the subject of free media. I agree that deciding what to believe nowadays is sometimes far from easy. We all need to set standards for what is believable. Mr. Widell’s first point is indisputable: We ...

Roundabout

Dear Editor, I attended the PA DOT public forum Wednesday evening regarding the 2 proposed options for the intersection of Market Street/PA Ave. and Market Street/Water Street: replacing the traffic signal and increasing the turning radii or the installation of a roundabout. There were ...

Politics at play?

Dear Editor, After reading the article regarding the proposed tax increase for the Hampton Inn in Conewango Township, one cannot help but wonder if perhaps the local politicians are beginning to mirror our national politicians in behavior. The City of Warren has for some time now been ...

Separation at the border

Dear Editor, I am a little confused as to what the issue is with children being separated from their “families” at the border when crossing into this country illegally. A couple of weeks ago I saw a group of people picketing outside the courthouse and it made me wonder. So, I have ...

Media freedom

Dear Editor, Free media are essential, but with freedom comes the obligation to be responsible and objective in reporting news. Yet today we find prominent “journalists” who openly state that their primary responsibility is to bring down President Trump. What an affront to the American ...

Thank You, WTO

Dear Editor, I must take a moment to offer my deepest thanks and to laud you for standing up so courageously for journalism in your editorial of August 16 entitled “Abridging the Freedom” in the face of Donald Trump’s relentless attacks on the priceless work all journalists do for ...

Thank you

Dear Editor, ‘Dear Draft Horse Club Members, Thank you very much for your kindness in inviting me to show in the obstacle course in your Fun Show at the Warren Fair. It felt great to be invited, and my handler and I had a great time. If you think about inviting me next year, she says ...

Political correctness run amok

Dear Editor, Our beloved, once sacred, Constitution guarantees that all citizens have freedom of speech. Speech is to be limited only by the restriction of not harming others. Beyond this, people are permitted to say whatever they wish, including language that some consider offensive. Our ...

Patriotism

Dear Editor, Just curious, how does a draft dodging Putin puppet challenge the patriotism of NFL players or anyone else for that matter? Jack Landers, Sheffield

Leadership you deserve

Dear Editor, To be a great President, I fear a man cannot be his own mentor... He cannot live the Sermon on the Mount... He has to be a Machiavelli, a Borgia, a Caesar, an unctuous Religio, a liar, a what not to be successful. What’s more, the American people will accept a second-rate ...

Decisions

Dear Editor, Roundabout? Traffic light? Let me ask this... has there been any major accidents with just the stop sign that’s there now? Hotel? Do we really do we need it? Are there tourists that have no place to stay? Parking garage in need of repair? Is it filled to capacity? Or can we ...

Nuclear Security Project

Dear Editor, Thursday, August 9th, is the 73rd anniversary of the Atomic bombing of Nagasaki, Japan. The world has lived under a threat of nuclear annihilation ever since atomic bombs were detonated over Nagasaki and Hiroshima. Former United States Secretary of Defense William J. ...

Hiroshima bombing

Dear Editor, Monday mark(ed) the 73rd Anniversary of the detonation of an atomic bomb over Hiroshima, Japan. This was followed 3 days later with an atomic bomb attack on Nagasaki, Japan. This week many governments, church groups, and peace activists will hold memorial services to ...

The putrid swamp

Dear Editor, As we all too well recall, my president had/has several catchall phrases. One, in particular, has come back to haunt this Administration over and over again. “Drain the Swamp!..... Drain the Swamp!......” Seems we have one more ‘gator to add to the growing list, ...

‘Battle Over Socialism’ is fake news

Dear Editor, Rich Lowry’s opinion piece in the August 6, 2018 edition of the WTO is, at best, sloppy journalism or, at worst, intentionally misleading (lies!). His claim that proposals of “Medicare-for-All” amounts to socialism is simply untrue. Socialism requires government ...

‘Battle Over Socialism’

Dear Editor, Mr. Rich Lowry’s piece in the 8/6//18 WTO entitled “The Battle Over Socialism Is Joined” presents the idea of “Medicare-for-All” as “a fringy plank of a growing element of the Democratic Party” and “a completely batty, politically unserious idea” which would ...

Grateful (Bravo)

Dear Editor, Words cannot express the gratitude that Autumn and I have for the support, both emotionally and financially, that has been shown to us. We are both still in awe from the benefit. We are so grateful to all those people that helped make it possible. A special thank you is ...

Good deed (Bravo)

Dear Editor, This shout-out goes to the person who anonymously paid for lunch at Docksiders at July 20. I can only imagine the sight you saw as the young lady struggled to get the wheelchair to the top of the hill. I wanted to let you know the young lady was deemed lacking character by the ...
