Letters To Editor

Hurricane map

Dear Editor, What kind of a person, no less the President of our country, would manipulate a hurricane map to cover his ignorance with a blatant lie? Alabama was never threatened by Hurricane Dorian, according to the best scientific analysis at the hurricane center. As I recall, it does ...

Waterfront development

Dear Editor, This summer, I was talking with the mayor of a small town not far from here. We were talking about Warren and how much I love it here. We talked about everything Warren offers, what our possibilities are, and what I hope to accomplish. He said to me, “one thing that is so ...

Voter suppression is real

Dear Editor, The League of Women Voters of Warren County educational programs help citizen become aware of voter suppression which happens in many ways. One is the redistricting process across the US. In PA our Supreme Court ruled the Keystone State congressional maps unconstitutional and ...

Warren County Commissioners

Dear Editor, Being just one of all people who actually vote here and in the surrounding areas of the county, I think Tom Paquette has some very valid points regarding voting issues. The cost savings alone is a big one! Constitutionality of the system and paper being the gold standard for ...

Original ballot-marking device is best

Dear Editor, Warren County Commissioners are intent on buying new voting machines (ballot marking devices, or BMDs) that are praised for being “most similar to what we’ve been using” ["The results are in,” Times Observer, Aug 21]. They are too similar, unfortunately. These BMDs ...

‘Inept, unqualified’

Dear Editor, In addition to being a national embarrassment, there are many political, logical reasons to despise Donald Trump. But I despise him for his cruelty. He cares not about children getting an education or even food. He had to be ordered to provide soap and toothpaste to the ...

In response

To the Editor, I’ve been mulling over the letter of Mr. Terry D. Hallock (Times Observer, 19 August), and it contains some points I can’t leave without a response. The very first sentence reads, “... the ultra-long, expensive Mueller probe produced no evidence of collusion... ...

A walkable city

Dear Editor, I was walking last night and my path took me past the Crary Art Gallery. Along Sixth, the sidewalk has been replaced. It is a great-looking sidewalk that the Crary has had installed; it is easy to navigate and will add an extra assurance of safety to its patrons. I am ...

Improving America’s healthcare

Dear Editor, After reading your 8/26 editorial regarding perceived difficulties and concerns (some valid, others really not) regarding the possibility of our nation’s moving to a single-payer/“Medicare-for-All” system at some point, it occurred to me that such public discussion ...

It’s time…

Dear Editor, It’s time to officially change the acronym from POTUS to DOOFUS. Donald Of Our (in)Famous United States. (no longer) My president continues to embarrass himself, and therefore our country with his off-the-wall comments and tweets. To recap: DOOFUS states, while gazing ...

Trump was right

Dear Editor Trump was right when he said, “the system is rigged.” The United States citizen who resides in a state with a small population compared to a citizen residing in a state with a large population is basically overrepresented in the United States Senate, e.g. South Dakota ...

In appreciation

Dear Editor, This one goes out for the kind soul who found my cell phone floating in the Allegheny River on Sunday, August 4th. My wallet was also in the floatation pouch and I wanted to thank the person for turning it into the Sheriff’s office. I asked for a name to give a proper thanks ...

For the betterment

Dear Editor, In response to a particular letter to the editor in last Saturday’s Review-Journal, the writer compares our President to leaders in both the military and civilian milieu. I have had the opportunity and privilege to serve this country for 25 years in 2 different branches of ...

Hail, comrades!

Dear Editor, Let me start out by bragging about my credentials: I am a fundamentalist Christian, I am not a vet, and I am very pro-life (sorry, the murder of children doesn’t really fit my idea of ‘virtue,’ that sounds more like something the ancient Canaanites did, not a ...

Again!

Dear Editor, El Paso, TX, and Dayton, OH, are the latest gun-related tragedies for our society. Not only is it a national tragedy, it’s a national disgrace. Innocent people who were enjoying their lives were KILLED and injured. Their families and loved ones are suffering, not only today ...

Come together

Dear Editor, I keep pondering the senseless shootings of this past weekend. I know there are strong reasons among our friends as to why our nation does not deserve gun control. But, I cannot help but feel there are overwhelming similarities among one another — not just the way we look or ...

‘Look in the mirror of God’s word’

Dear Editor, Jesus Christ came into His world — He had spoken it into existence — and His own knew Him not. Many people have been tripping over their opinion about the reality of our former reality star president. Why? “He doesn’t sound presidential.” Do you forget? We ...

A good leader

Dear Editor, In both the military and the workplace, a good leader will bring people together to achieve a common objective. He will instill confidence in his subordinates and encourage them to pull together. He will listen to advice and make an informed decision. He will earn their ...

‘Enjoy your feast’

Dear Editor, Trump is absolutely correct about his criticism of these cities. After using 2 different search venues, each proved everything he said about the liberals ownership of these disastrous cities. Governors, members of Congress, Mayors, & local politicians are all Democratic ...

Trees

Dear Editor, This week, I watched as two trees were taken down on 4th Avenue. It was not a surprise to me as they have been clearly marked for some time now. Not one of my friends said thank goodness that old tree is gone. Not one said a negative thing about those trees. But, I did hear ...
