Don’t just stand there Dear Editor, The wrong statues are coming down. The ones to take down should be the walking, zombie-like Democrats. Today’s DNC and supporters are nothing but divisive, communist thugs. They do not like the United States of America and their ideology of hate is ...

Help our schools open Dear Editor, To reopen our schools safely, Pennsylvania needs Congress’ help Pennsylvania educators and administrators are putting plans in place to reopen our schools to students in the new school year. We still have a lot of work to do, but one thing is clear: ...

Readers Speak

Kneeling implications Dear Editor, I read something incredulous. It stated that President Donald Trump would win the upcoming election just on sports figures kneeling. I can’t recall any extreme reaction to this until Trump told people what they were supposed to think. Now, he again, ...

Readers Speak

Masks a new arsenal Dear Editor, Some folks may think of Patriots with muskets near July Fourth. Defiant words penned to delicate paper were backed up by iron, gunpowder, lead and the blood of Patriots. Cloth masks and sanitizer seem wimpy weaponry compared to iron and gunpowder. But those ...

Readers Speak

No secrecy in loans Dear Editor, I take exception to the Times Observer editorial and Treasury Secretary Mnuchin’s assertion that getting a COVID loan is proprietary information. When a business applies for a public loan that is funded by taxpayer money there should not be an expectation ...

Readers Speak

Flying off the handle Dear Editor, It’s interesting that with the racial, biological, and political turmoil that all of us are recently exposed to on a daily basis that an elected official in the Oval Office has yet to come forward to allay our concerns. Rather, supercilious tweets ...

Readers Speak

Get going on brakes Dear Editor, I have noticed many skid marks on only one side of a vehicle. Why? Because apparently brakes are not working or are out of adjustment. What happened to the PennDOT or federal DOT? How about the police? Someone is not doing maintenance. I maintained a ...

Readers Speak

All lives need values Dear Editor, Black lives matter. White lives matter. All lives matter. But lives are a combination of body for action, mind for knowledge, and spirit for direction. It is becoming more evident that the spiritual dimension of our lives is much less significant than ...

Readers Speak

Important point missing Dear Editor, I read a recent editorial (June 10), while scratching my head. You mentioned the primary turnout of 30% Republicans and 27% Democrats as low, and prognosticated that fall turnout will have far more persons voting. As I recall, your newspaper had many ...

Sociopathic behavior continues Dear Editor, Quoting again from my college Abnormal Psychology textbook — and previous letters to the editor: The most incredible trait of a sociopath is his complete lack of conscience, lack of empathy, remorse, guilt or shame, moral emotion. He can ...

Praise for Rouse Estates Dear Editor, During this time of stress and challenges in Warren County, one thing has not changed and that is the ongoing exemplary work and care that takes place every day at the Rouse Estates of Warren County. There, the children, adults and our valued senior ...

COVID-19 takes away ‘Warren’s Mardi Gras’

The year was 1947 and a number of young men had just returned from World War II. Filled with pride and a new sense of patriotism they formed an organization later to become the Warren Jaycees. This group included Roy Schneck, Chuck Tranter and several other future community leaders and for ...

Readers Speak

Is our country promoting division? Dear Editor, Yes, black lives do matter. History is eloquent with slavery and lynching. The precious lives of innocent school children matter. The lives of Hispanics who are detained and murdered matter. The lives of white people who are killed matter. ...

‘Truth shall make you free’

Dear Editor, The inscription on the Liberty Bell says “Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof.” This is a direct quotation from the book of Leviticus in the Bible. Another place in the Bible that shows the virtues of liberty is 2 Corinthians 3:17 ...

Truth does not always come from government Dear Editor: We have heard it before, during the Vietnam War, the distortions, the outright lies, and misinformation from our politicians and generals about winning the war, number counts and inundating the American people with skewed statistics: ...

Children must use caution in park

Dear Editor, It was good to see the kids enjoying the Beaty playground, which opened up last week. I pray they will be safe as they have fun this summer. However, I did see something that disturbed me. A girl about 9 or 10 was walking inside the overflow fence of the Conewango Creek on the ...

We can open up quicker

Dear Editor, In regards to "Going green" (May 23), I think it is terrible that all of these businesses were closed in the first place. They would know how to control distancing so they should have been able to stay open. I think it is time that all of the businesses in our town open ...

Getting our attention?

Dear Editor, I am not a pastor, priest, lay person, etc. I am just a person who knows we are in trouble—I’m a sinner saved by grace. I know who is in charge and has the answer. That is God Almighty; Jesus, His Son; and Holy Spirit, the Comforter. In the bible there was Pharaoh who ...
