Hospice grateful for heart

Letters To Editor

Dear Editor, Many things have changed for all of us since March. Hospice of Warren County understands the devotion of faithful followers during these trying times. Because our special recognition events were put on hold this year, we would like to take this alternative way to recognize all ...

A blessing to be an American

Our Opinion

There has been so much debate over recenty proposed limits regarding gatherings for today’s holiday that we may have forgotten the true spirit of Thanksgiving. And this year, if any, we really do need to be thankful for all that we have. In a year that no one would ever want to relive, ...

Threat to democracy

Letters To Editor

Dear Editor, I see that a local resident again has been given a large space for commentary in your paper, and that again he has spewed vitriolic, distorted information through his public platform, much of which I responded to in an earlier letter. It would be comical were such things not ...

Bad omen for country

Letters To Editor

Dear Editor: Don’t give up the ship, keep the faith. Most worry is unfounded as long as one stays in motion — having a plan. First of all mistrust the obvious, take a hard look at the least likely and, if losing, do so on your own terms. Application: stolen, U.S. Presidential 2020 ...

Enemies not here at home

Letters To Editor

Dear Editor, There’s a saying in German: where two are fighting, a third party profits. Presently in the United States Democrats and Republicans are constantly fighting, seeking to demonize the other side for their own advantage. Who is winning? Every enemy of the United States. ...

Opportunities abound for Council

Our Opinion

It is encouraging to see the Warren Council Council of Governments taking a hard look at how the group can help solve some of the county’s most pressing issues. Of course, fire and EMS services are the impetus for these talks, and we hope that the Council of Governments’ strategic ...

Our opinion: ‘Serious discussion,’ open mind

Our Opinion

John Wortman makes some sense when he talks about Warren’s pending 2022 budget. Warren can’t simply tax its way out of a looming $1.6 million structural deficit in 2022. A big tax increase to balance that big a deficit will simply send on-the-fence homeowners and businesses running for the ...

Vote probe a ‘disgrace’

Letters To Editor

Dear Editor: Republican State Rep. Kathy Rapp of Warren is on the wrong side of history, and more importantly on the wrong side of democracy in supporting ongoing “investigations” into Pennsylvania’s recent election. In doing so, she and her extreme right-wing political colleagues ...

Time to unite, heal

Letters To Editor

Dear Editor, Well, there you have it ladies and gentlemen. Like it or not, the fat lady has sung. Finally! The people have spoken. Maybe now, we can get over this nightmare that has wracked our nation for the last four years. It’s time to rebuild, reunite and heal our country, our souls, ...

Don’t let ‘our guard down’ with COVID-19

Local Commentaries

Dear Editor, The recent rise in COVID-19 cases across the United States is a serious reminder of the strength and longevity of this pandemic. Western Pennsylvania is not immune to the increased number of cases. There have been more than 1,000 deaths and over 45,000 in our 14-county region ...

River memories frozen in time

Local Commentaries

I have spent a rather long life mostly in the communities of Erie, Youngstown and Warren which if joined by straight lines would create a rough triangle. I have traveled between the points of this triangle countless times. And I have witnessed marked environmental changes at all three of ...

Our opinion: Trump’s actions may hurt U.S.

Our Opinion

American presidents need to hit the ground running, especially when it comes to national security. We have too many enemies in the world to let our guard down for even a few hours. President Donald Trump continues to challenge results of the Nov. 3 election through court challenges. That is ...

Thanksgiving is family

Local Commentaries

I found a poem written by Edgar A. Guest at the beginning of the twentieth century. He began his career at the age of 14 in 1895. His column was syndicated in over three hundred newspapers. He became known as “The Poet of the People.” Thanksgiving ‘Twas this the mother always ...

A native’s significant speech

Our Opinion

Saturday marks the 75th anniversary of Robert H. Jackson’s opening statement before the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg. Jackson, a native of Warren County, Pa., and Chautauqua County who by 1945 had already made his mark on the national stage as U.S. Attorney General and a ...

Election of Biden is a step in wrong direction for U.S.

Local Commentaries

To all my liberal leftist friends and to all those others on the left that feel I am a deplorable, racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, bigot and a sub-species of humanity that is irredeemable, be prepared for that is exactly what you get with China Joe Hiddin Sleepy Biden! ...

A distorted image

Letters To Editor

Dear Editor, It is what it is . . . until it isn’t . . . DAFFY. Lying, Cheating, Stealing, Godless, Gutless, Gritless, Clueless, Shiftless, Chauvinist . . . Racist, Sexist, Fascist . . . Twisted Twittering Twit . . . and Ranting, Raving, Lunatic. Silence Gives Consent. Tony ...

Our opinion: Survey is path for park’s future

Our Opinion

There is nothing wrong with having a conceptual plan for Washington Park if and when funding is available. Kicking the tires on a Washington Park project is fine. There should be no worries about time on such a project. COVID-19 is drying up the tax dollars that would pay for a project, after ...

Votes an edict on virus

Letters To Editor

Dear Editor, COVID has affected so much of our lives. One thing was being able to vote by mail. This did two things. It increased the numbers of people who voted and brought something to our attention that most of us never thought about. The vast number of Americans who selflessly ...

Strange interpretations

Letters To Editor

It seems that a recent writer took umbrage that his “facts” are called into question ... and well they should have been. His original letter stated that only 6% of reported covid deaths were actually due to covid according the the CDC website, and claims that ‘the media’ has inflated ...
