Letters To Editor

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 ...

Readers Speak

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 ...

Kudos to golf courses

Dear Editor, Kudos and thanks to the owners and management of Blueberry and Jackson Valley golf courses for their adhering to the CDC guidance during this very troubling time. We must all be cognizant of the consequences that may occur if we don’t remain vigilant. Keeping the social ...

Wearing masks

Dear Editor, I would like to thank the people who don’t wear masks when going into stores that require them. Thank you to the stores that don’t enforce mask wearing. Thank you to the people that wear a mask to enter a store and then remove it while shopping. Thank you to the families ...

City additions

We wanted to send a big Thank You to all involved for the beautiful new playground at Beaty. Our two-year-old son woke up every morning wanting to go watch the construction and will enjoy using it for years to come. Just another great addition to a family-friendly community. And we wanted to ...

Population would benefit from opening businesses

Dear Editor, When the Coronavirus problem first became apparent I was terrified. New data has come out that has changed that thinking. I am concerned that in most cases, isolation may not be necessary. It may also create a bigger problem because you can’t gain immunity isolating at ...

The path forward

Dear Editor, Certainly America walks a very fine line between effectively managing this pandemic and getting our economy up and running once again. It is crucial to realize that this is not a choice between one or the other, and that efforts to achieve both of these intertwined goals must ...

Freedom of choice

Dear Editor, People are free to use their freedom of choice to go where they want to. But, at this time, people don’t know if they have the virus or not. There has not been enough testing. When people choose to use a business and not social distance or wear masks, they can infect other ...

‘FAQ-3’

Dear Editor, I appreciate the “COVID-19 FAQ 3” recurring series answering questions about COVID-19 and coronavirus. The practical information given by Dr. Keith Price, Michele Welker RN, Beth Anderson RN, and Joe Akif is insightful and concise. The questions and advice are especially ...

‘What we wanted’

Dear Editor, Many people seem to think that we here in the U.S. are the only ones struggling with COVID-19. This is a worldwide problem and every country is dealing with it by “shutting down.” It is apparent that many of us aren’t cut from the same cloth as our parents and ...

Littering

Dear Editor, I wanted to comment on the litter that goes on in this county. I saw the article in the paper in regard to trash at Jake’s Rocks. I know Don and Kate Reed and I commend them for participating in trying to clean up our county. Ironically, we were up at Jake’s Rocks last ...

‘Devastating’

Dear Editor, “Devastating, worst jobs report ever” is how the media reports unemployment numbers released today. Just what did these morons think would happen after the governors shut down the economy. Now the politicians can see the effects of their ill conceived actions to ...

Perspective

Dear Editor, We need some perspective. My parents were members of the generation that lived through the Great Depression; an economic catastrophe that lasted years, not weeks or months. It bothers me that we are complaining and protesting about having to stay at home when these people ...

Selfishness

Dear Editor, Not only is Covid-19 creating havoc with the health of our nation, but with the fabric of our society. Our medical, first responders, and scientific women and men are giving their body and soul to mitigate the devastation of this world wide epidemic. Yet some people are not ...

Dems offer hope?

Dear Editor, Americans should recall the message of hope the Democrats have offered when it’s time to vote in November. For nearly four years, the Democrats along with their Chinese propaganda media machine have relentlessly bombarded us with their message of hope. Hope that we are ...
