Hotel

Dear Editor, I think most of us know that taxes are too high and would love to see them lowered. We need the services that taxes provide, but too much is being funded by taxes. Does Warren truly need another hotel? If Warren could truly support another hotel, don’t you think that some hotel ...

Losing to Jamestown

Dear Editor, First, let me ask, wasn’t there already a “study” done about a hotel on Clark Street that said we didn’t have the capacity to fill it and it wouldn’t be a feasible project? Next, if we are (losing people to Jamestown), I would love to have someone go talk to ALL the ...

Power grid vulnerability

Hotel

Dear Editor, Is the proposed hotel on the waterfront a good idea? Can we fill a another one? Will the taxpayers see a return on the 1.4 million dollar investment the city wants to spend? Will the hotel public private investment become another debacle since one was proposed for the waterfront ...

On kids’ threats in school

When will we stop it?
