Letters To Editor

‘For the record’

Dear Editor, This is not the letter I wanted to write, but it is the one that I feel obligated to write. A few weeks ago, WTO published a letter of mine titled “Cheap Shots.” Two days later, another concerned citizen challenged one of my examples of literary cheap shots. I wrote, ...

A safe distance

Dear Editor, The United States Postal Service is committed to delivering your mail and packages throughout the current pandemic. We are proud of our role in providing an essential service to every community. The one constant throughout this crisis has been our commitment to fulfilling the ...

NOT real simple

Dear Editor, The Covid 19 testing is not as easy as testing your backyard pool water. Pool water test kits have been available probably 60 or more years and the chemicals and chemistry is relatively simple. If we needed MILLIONS of these kits, production would probably meet demand. A CDC ...

Trump

Dear Editor, I can’t believe Dr. Fauci is putting up with Trump’s stupid thinking on COVID-19. I notice Dr. Fauci is talking in circles at times, and is not sure of himself. I think it won’t be long before they will be parting ways. And then Dr. Fauci will tell it like it really ...

The front lines

Dear Editor, You’re in the front line! In this anxiety provoking pandemic times, people are sometimes complacent and think the frontline in the war against the COVID-19 is in the hospitals and emergency rooms and urgent care centers and with the doctors, nurses, health care workers and ...

Socialism

Dear Editor, Socialism’s in the news as Bernie Sanders runs for president, backed by radical congresswomen Omar and Ocasio-Cortez. News items reported Bernie promising 1) No one making under $29K would pay income tax and that 2) All others would pay increased taxes. You correctly ...

Patriotism knocking at our back door

Dear Editor, We don’t hear the word patriotism today. However, I do think it is poking its head up as we learn of people stepping forward to make surgical masks, garments and more, to assist our teams of care givers around the country. It’s shown in the folks of Warren who are doing just ...

‘THAT’ party

Dear Editor, Isn’t it sad? Millions of dollars for the left’s wishes, that have nothing to do with helping citizens through this crisis. Thousands of families could use that money to sustain their lives. Strange? No more than what “THAT” party has been doing for years. Selfish, ...

Support the front lines

Dear Editor, One of the struggles of self-isolation is how hard it is to say thanks. Many of us have seen reports of communities in different locations that are picking a common time to go outside and make some noise in support of our brave brothers and sisters on the front lines of this ...

Saying thank you

Dear Editor, The world has certainly changed suddenly and quite dramatically as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are all doing the best we can to adjust to and deal with this new reality now facing us, especially with all of the major changes, worries, and stresses it has brought ...

Imagine

Dear Editor, Let’s imagine what truly good leadership would look like under the extraordinary crisis now facing us. So imagine a leader with a genuine capacity for empathy, compassion, and selflessness who puts his own ego aside and focuses fully on doing everything possible to help ...

Current crisis

Dear Editor, I want to comment on the current crisis facing our nation. Needless to say, the coronavirus dominates headlines all over the world. Despite the strong response from our government, including travel bans and pushing hard to create a vaccine; many citizens are still panic buying ...

Thank you, volunteers

Dear Editor Once again I would like to thank our volunteers for helping to make our 2nd Harvest Food Bank for Veterans a success. We had the most participants getting food, as we have ever had, also the most thank yous. Everyone was smiling and enjoying the day. Isn’t it so nice to see ...

The Coronavirus battlefield

Dear Editor, Soon, Warren County will be the site of a battlefield. The enemy will be the Coronavirus, the pandemic that has swept across the world and has now reached our shores. This has become a World War-level event, with every nation fighting on several fronts. Each one of us will ...

Concern

Dear Editor, I live in town and walk all the time enduring those who will not stop at designated crosswalks, but the new signage on Market Street has created more problems than it has solved. Unlike the crosswalks on Liberty Street where the walk signal coincides with the lights, you must ...

The virus

Dear Editor, Finally, the Governor of New York State and not Donald Trump expressed today a relevant and coherent policy for his state and the rest of us which was objective and truthful to help all of us combat the Coronavirus on a local, state and federal level. It was refreshing to hear ...

Lemonade from lemons

Dear Editor, As we deal with the corona virus in the best way possible for our families and community members here are 20 suggestions for Warren County and City activities — if not done in groups of more than 10 — which are relatively safe and cost little except for some gas in the ...

Closing libraries

Dear Editor, Closing libraries across the Commonwealth with NO ADVANCE WARNING is absolutely wrong. There are counties where it is reasonable, but all counties effective immediately? No, no, no. Schools will be closed for two weeks. Fine. Entertainment venues will be closed. Fine. ...

The correct choice

Dear Editor, Once again, we have a major election approaching. We read the same comments from the same people about Pres. Trump; everything is under scrutiny that he says or does. He has spoken things many wish had not been said, but when one gets to the nitty gritty of his term, ...

‘We can’t afford socialism’

Dear Editor, Neither Democrats nor Republicans can afford the socialism we already have. Adding more socialist spending is absurd. The National Debt (ND) is $23 trillion. This year: spending – revenue = $1 trillion added to the national debt. Spending must be cut not increased. In our ...
