Letters To Editor

Immigration

Dear Editor, In 2014, PA had 180,000 illegal immigrants living here. By 2016, that number of illegals finding Sanctuary in PA grew to 860,000. Imagine how many more undocumented lawbreakers have entered our state by breaking into our country in the last two years. By the way, that is ...

Robbing Peter to pay Paul

Dear Editor, As is well documented and agreed upon many rational economic experts, my president’s tariff war with China will promote jobs and farming in China while making it tougher for American farmers to compete in World markets. They need to, as Americans don’t eat much in the ...

Amish

Dear Editor, I wonder if the people that go on tours of the Amish communities in Ohio are shown their horrible puppy mills; guess not, as they are well hidden. Mary Taylor, Warren

Outdoor burning

Dear Editor, No smoking or vaping in ALL areas of ALL city-owned parks, at ALL times and in ALL circumstances. “I just think it would be safe and best for everyone,” states council member Phil Gilbert. Let us revisit, once again, the outdoor burning in the city of Warren. Please ...

No borders, no country

Dear Editor, Recently, a Time magazine cover showed immigrant children in a detention center. This was intended to be evidence of President Trump’s hard-heartedness. But the photo was taken in 2014; Obama was president. Migrants can request asylum at specific stations on the border. ...

Milk

Dear Editor, This is a comment to the OUR OPINION: GOT MILK in the Warren Times Observer - July 21, 2018, regarding the Food and Drug Administration and labels titled "milk." Using my academic nutrition background and teaching experiences, consumers don?t read labels to know what they ...

Patriotism

Dear Editor, Trump said, “NO STAND, NO PLAY, AND NO PAY” to the NFL players exercising their right of expression (First Amendment) to focus attention on the need for improved social justice. Standing with all respect for the National Anthem is the expected patriotic behavior. In ...

A wolf in sheep’s clothing

Dear Editor, Consider this: what if, instead of the somewhat weak attempt at humor it appeared to be, the soccer ball that Vladimir Putin tossed to Donald Trump at Monday’s press conference in Helsinki was actually a message? A secret message between the two, much like the secret 2-1/2 ...

Immigration

Dear Editor, The religious moralist/economist, Adam Smith said society is best served by each individual pursuing self-interest, "the invisible hand theory." Sounds reasonable, doesn't it? Focus on the individual doing what is best for him/her and this society is well served. Too much ...

Enough is enough

Dear Editor, Enough of the Warren County School District ideology. Administrators and Board Members complain of running into a negative budget but yet on the same page in the newspaper they are placing out bids for work on the district buildings? If you don't have the fund you stop ...

In response

Dear Editor, I read a recent letter to the Readers Speak column (June 28: Jeremy M. Wyman) and was reminded of when I served on the board of the Warren County School District. From my seat on the school board I learned that what Mr. Wyman says in his letter is exactly true: That there ...

My question

Dear Editor, According to the Times Observer, dated June 22, 2018, there is a proposed revision of a section in the city's code dealing with smoking and vaping in the public parks and recreation areas. The proposal states that smoking and vaping will be prohibited in ALL areas of ALL ...

Migrant children and parents

Dear Editor, Every single person in this country should be outraged at what the current administration has done by separating children from their parents - no matter what nationality or where they come from - this shouldn’t be done to anyone - especially here in America! I cannot believe ...

Magical beans

Dear Editor, The uninformed electorate believes in my President’s tariffs, hoping in error, that they will MAGA. However, economic experts and a recent report prove what the informed American people know. Tariffs will hurt American producers and consumers by either making goods more ...

What have we become?

Dear Editor, So, now the President of the United States admires, praises and cozies up to brutal world dictators, while insulting and alienating our allies, and relentlessly attacking any here at home who dare to criticize or question him. We forcibly separate families fleeing horrific ...

Redistricting

Dear Editor, Thank you for your editorial earlier this spring supporting a constitutional amendment to improve the way Pennsylvania’s legislative and Congressional districts are drawn. This amendment suffered a confusing array of legislative tricks in the waning days of the most recent ...

Auto Sports Club

I was recently given a 6” x 16” painted sign and a 1958 membership card for Ronald Murray, signed Thos. Sheels(?) for the “Auto Sports Club, Inc. Warren, Pa.” Am interested in learning more about this group as have been involved with sports car racing and sports car history over 45+ ...

Property taxes

Dear Editor, I want to comment on the proposal to increase property taxes. This is one thing that should not be permitted. Property owners are taxed to death now and cannot take any more. The school district and the city should eliminate the words “tax increase” from their vocabulary ...

Relay For Life

Dear Editor, On behalf of the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Warren, I would like to sincerely thank our community for its generosity and support. 11 teams and 117 people participated in this year’s event on June 23 and 24. More than $47,000 was raised to support the ...

Eliminate divisiveness

Dear Editor, For those of you who cringe when you hear the word consolidate and want to keep your mascots, bands, sports teams, colors, etc., here’s a proposal that would rid the county of regional divisiveness and eliminate the need to consolidate. Dissolve the Warren County School ...
