Letters To Editor

Gun violence

Dear Editor, Well there you go, people. New Zealand’s leaders just showed us how it’s done. Just days, [less than a week] after a mass shooting, in two places of worship, their leaders took action to stop future attacks. They banned all military grade weapons that were used in the ...

Electric bikes

Dear Editor, While I respect the efforts of wilderness groups to preserve nature, I find their arguments regarding the dangers of electric mountain bikes to be somewhat alarmist and incomplete. I have been hiking and mountain biking and motorcycling for over forty years, and invariably I ...

About the great wall!

Dear Editor, About the great wall! Forget it. By watching a documentary on YouTube of Ellis Island, its function and recent restoration for $165,000,000, let us think of inviting the Mexicans to cooperate on an ‘underground railroad’ system by use of cruise ships and immigration ...

Market Street Merry-Go-Round

Dear Editor, I have resisted, to this point, but can’t help adding my own thoughts on the controversial topic of the round- about to be constructed at Market St. and Penn Ave. This intersection was redesigned and rebuilt a number of years ago, primarily to accommodate truck traffic ...

I agree

Dear Editor, Barbara L. Boger’s letters about the roundabout could not have said it any better. I agree with everything she said. This roundabout is going to give our town a major traffic disaster! It alone with the Liberty and Pa. Ave. will send even more traffic over 3rd, 4th, and ...

Like Sand Through An Hour Glass

Dear Editor, For anyone following the saga of this Roundabout, it’s clear that it’s evoked a lot of emotion from the citizens of this community. We’ve got letters from citizens every day pointing out every conceivable reason why we shouldn’t have it. We’ve got council members ...

Roundabout

Dear Editor, It would appear that Warren County has reached the state of the union of the rest of the country. I don’t know about you, but lately when I’ve considered the chaotic condition of the country, I have always found solace in the solid workings of our county’s institutions, ...

Roundabout

Dear Editor, First of all, I am sorry for the loss of Phil Gilbert’s father. BUT he keeps comparing this roundabout to Waterford and there is no similarity at all. Waterford’s roundabout is not smack dab in the middle of the busiest intersection in town! Did he not listen to the ...

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 ...
