Letters To Editor

Minimum still too small

Dear Editor, There are several good reasons to raise the minimum wage to $16 per hour! It would decrease the number of people living in poverty. It would increase the number of people employed and decrease the number relying on Government assistance. It would improve the economy, giving ...

Bitter displays

Dear Editor, It is with great sadness that I drive around town and view the remnants of our last election. No matter which side of the isle you supported, it’s time to move on and accept the results of what was determined in November of last year. The signs from those who supported the ...

A worthy recipient

Dear Editor, First, let me say that I’m a firm believer that people have the right to spend their money any way they want. Having said that, I looked over the “Warren Gives” data, online for 2020. There were (18) Volunteer Fire Departments listed among the recipients. In total, those ...

Media and guns

Dear Editor, Recently, while President Joe Biden was exposing his executive orders on gun control, two mass shootings were underway in Texas and South Carolina. Nothing Biden was doing would slow the epidemic. Starting in the ’70s the conditioning of youth to use guns in movies, TV and ...

Blurring the lines

Dear Editor, Recently I read about this athlete “Hannah” Mouncey who now competes with women in Australian rules football. When we guys wrestled on the playground at recess time at the Starbrick school we had a name for those who could not cut it with the guys and went to play with the ...

Simple solution

Dear Editor, I believe the answer to police violence is simple: don’t break the laws and follow the instructions of the officer. Lee Borger Jr., Clarendon

Dangerous path

Dear Editor, As we watch this debacle on the border and the other blunders in Washington less than 100 days into the administration, I wonder how many President Joe Biden voters have changed their minds about “Mr. Nice Guy?” He changed the immigration laws, not because of their ...

Workers miss support

Dear Editor, Nearly 60 million people may say they would join a union today, if they could. The problem? Big business and woefully outdated laws continue to undermine the right to collectively bargain. Just take the “Right To Work” Laws, for example; Across the country, anti-worker ...

School of thought

Dear Editor, A San Francisco news item of March 19 states that “as America reels from its latest spate of deadly hate crimes and racism, educators and civil rights leaders in California called on the state Board of Education to approve the nation’s first state-wide model ethnic studies ...

How many phone numbers are there?

Dear Editor: I would like to address the issue of bringing in another area code. It seems like technology is going backwards. When I was a kid, we had a short number like 859J. Then it got longer and went to RA3-4209 and then to 723-4209. Now they want to make it longer yet. Why ...

Morning in America

Dear Editor: At the instant it is mourning. If it can happen, it will happen. At the moment no one knows the point of inflection when it occurs, but it does. What will happen, by year end, 2021, Joe Biden, et al. will be removed from offices. One knows such to be true via three levels of ...

Speed is a major factor in car crashes

Dear Editor, Many people use statistics to prove a point favorable to their position on a topic, but some fact-checking can shed more light on those statistics. A case in point is the letter from Tom McCarey, writing as a representative of the National Motorists Association in the March ...

Vote no on bill

Dear Editor: Contact your Representative and tell them to vote no on House Bill 606, RADAR for municipal police. RADAR is only for money, not safety: this bill is a tax on every driver. What is the motivation for giving municipal police RADAR? The RADAR lobby says in order to make it ...

U.S. falling behind

Dear Editor, America’s Constitution used to help ensure that we were the land of fair play. One team of players in the game, however, has gained the upper hand. Instead of playing fairly, they have decided to break the rules with such bills as H.R. 1 (For the People Act) and S. 51 ...
