Trump in turmoil Dear Editor, Have you heard that Mitt Romney called out President Donald Trump’s commutation of Trump’s old time political ally, Roger Stone, as being “historic, unprecedented corruption.” Stone had been convicted of seven felony crimes relating to the Russia link ...

Unhealthy advice Dear Editor, Reasonable people should be absolutely tired of Donald Trump’s refusal to accept the scientific knowledge of personnel who understand the significance and the deadly nature of COVID-19. He is a hindrance to the efforts of everyone who are trying their very ...

Respect heroes with mask Dear Editor, Sept. 11, 2001. Two hijacked planes crash into the World Trade Center. Firemen rush in, not out, to help rescue survivors. Which put them right at risk. Many died. Heroes. How could we help? What can we do? FDNY hats were worn everywhere. We now ...

Silver lining in support Dear Editor, On behalf of the coaching staff and the Little Eagles Wrestling Booster, I would like to thank those who stopped by our booth this past weekend during YABA days in Youngsville. Thank you so much to: the Brokenstraw Valley Winery who allowed us to ...

Freedoms at stake Dear Editor, For nearly four years the federal government has been in turmoil because the Democrats lost the 2016 election. Donald Trump ran on the “Drain the Swamp” agenda with many promises to “Make America Great Again.” He has accomplished some of those ...

Readers Speak

Cause and effect Dear Editor, Former officer Derek Chauvin brutally killed George Floyd. He’s in jail and charged with murder. His action was despicable. Going beyond peaceful protests, rioters committed arson, looting and assaults in numerous cities. Those actions are despicable. The ...

Readers Speak

No masking leadership Dear Editor, I hate wearing a mask. Hate it. But I rather like having a governor who does not want to see me bury friends and relatives. Rather than blaming the governor who is trying to keep us safe. How about putting the blame where it belongs? If Donald Trump ...

Readers Speak

‘Spectacular failure’ in U.S. Dear Editor, The way to effectively deal with a pandemic is actually quite well known: a coordinated nationwide effort including comprehensive testing, tracing, and isolation when needed to nip outbreaks in the bud; consistent physical distancing and ...

Readers Speak

No tributes to treason Dear Editor, Confederate monuments that include Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, John Bell Hood, James Longstreet, George Pickett and many more who fought against the United States are tributes to treasonous despots who exacted dominion over African Americans. Their ...

Readers Speak

Details are missing Dear Editor, Readers are not getting enough information about COVID-19 cases in Warren. We have a right to know the details. At the beginning, health officials said they wanted information. But once they get it, that information is not getting released to the ...

Readers Speak

Getting past privilege Dear Editor, In a recent edition (July 2) a reader writes, “If all lives don’t matter, then no lives matter. Anything less is racist.” This has become a frequently cited rebuttal to the peaceful protesters who chant “Black lives matter,” and the Black ...

Readers Speak

Voter fraud Dear Editor: The nearly 67 county suit brought by the Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. campaign with Congressmen Glenn Thompson and Mike Kelly is blatant proof of their disregard for the health and lives of the citizens of our Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and nation. It is ...

Leadership is failing Dear Editor, The way to effectively deal with a pandemic is actually quite well known: a coordinated nationwide effort including comprehensive testing, tracing, and isolation when needed to nip outbreaks in the bud; consistent physical distancing and mask-wearing in ...

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 ...
