Letters To Editor

Bullies

Dear Editor, (A blustering, quarrelsome, overbearing person who habitually badgers and intimidates smaller or weaker humans.) “I’m agnostic, pro-choice and not a vet.” I’m told that we’re not born with racism, so that must mean bullies aren’t born bullies. Does that mean we ...

Let arts grow

Dear Editor, Thursday evening, the Warren Philharmonic and the Warren County Summer Music Program performed an exceptional community concert. This free outdoor concert brought out neighbors and friends to experience the charm of Warren and the pride we have in our community. There’s just ...

Humane society

Dear Editor, Sometimes it takes a special circumstance to prompt our actions; write a letter in support comes to mind. That circumstance is an abandoned dog in the neighborhood. After learning about the dog, a call was made to one of the PAWS’ board members, several hours before the ...

Unfavorable

Dear Editor, The June 25th Our Opinion gauges potential 2020 victory of Trump by crowd size at rallies and amount of money in campaign chests. I, on the other hand, go by the authentic 9 recent polls, including Reuters, Quinnipiac, and CNN where Trump averaged 43.8% Favorable and 52.2% ...

Trump’s 2020 platform?

Dear Editor, So let’s take a look at just a few issues which Mr. Trump probably won’t be focusing on in his efforts to rally enough voters to win re-election in 2020. A relentless disregard for truth and facts, with over 10,000 documented and demonstrably false statements over the ...

‘Pet Peeve’

Dear Editor, Hello, after reading your recent article about the Warren County Humane Society, I have some questions. I feel like the article was more fluff than anything. The humane society needs to start being more transparent like other shelters in the area. First of all, I understand ...

Farmers’ Market season

Dear Editor, It’s Farmers’ Market season in Warren, PA, and there are definitely many advantages to buying food at our farmers’ market. I have been encouraged to shop locally and support small local business. One way is supporting local farmers and small business owners. Local ...

‘Thank You’

Dear Editor, It is with great pleasure that we, the Board of Directors of the Tidioute Area Health & Dental Center, say “Thank You” to Robert E. Schwab, former President of the Board. Bob has stepped down from his position as President due to illness and we want him to know that ...

Iran

Dear Editor, “I want to know what it takes to remember when you know that you’ve heard it before, when a government lies to its people, and a country is drifting to war... I want to know who the men in the shadows are, I want to hear somebody asking them why, they can be counted on to ...

World Wide Web

Dear Editor, In today’s Times Observer, there is a front-page article on the state of Internet Service. Our area ranks the lowest in the region. We all know that Warren, PA is a quaint city that is difficult at times for visitors to come to. That is part of the charm of our city. We ...

Enantiodromia

Dear Editor, Washington noted that the two pillars upon which society rests are religion and morality, with each supporting the other. Widespread support of these pillars has changed into apathy within a large segment of our country. Many aspects of our culture including religion, ...

A.W.O.L.

Dear Editor, Representatives Thompson, Kelly, and Senator Toomey are AWOL. During the 2016 political campaign, they vied for photo-ops and news releases with the candidate and later newly elected Trump. Nowadays, they nervously await the daily tweets and Presidential distortions and keep a ...

The nation’s issues

Dear Editor, I wanted to comment on some of the issues confronting our nation at this time. To begin with, I think it’s dangerously naive to assume that the United States will continue to exist despite the escalating chaos inside our government and beyond. With various political factions ...

Name calling

Dear Editor, Years ago, and perhaps even today, children have a propensity to call one another with derogatory names. That is understandable for children, HOWEVER, for the president of the United States of America to resort to childish name-calling behavior is SHAMEFUL. Grow up, sir! ...

Corporate America

Dear Editor, Wal-Mart (Corp America) keeps taking away much-needed jobs. Now they are getting rid of the cashiers. They promise them other jobs. Those jobs will eventually dissolve. Wal-Mart says “it is the future.” If the jobs keep disappearing, there will be no future as no one will ...

Dr. No and the Revenge Party

Dear Editor, Once upon a time, a tiny county in a rundown state held an election for County Commissioner, where all three seats were up for grabs. However, since local election rules hearkened back to a time when those who wanted to lead the Democrat Party consisted of somewhat reasonable ...

Every child is worthy

Dear Editor, People usually think of law enforcement as the guys who put the bad people away for their crimes – and that’s partially true. In my more than four decades in the Warren County Sheriff’s office, I often see people at their lowest points, whether they’re facing a judge ...

Really think about this

Dear Editor, I was appalled to see the backlash against Brian Sims and his support of Planned Parenthood and the safety of the women who use the organization's services. While his language and aggressiveness were not in good taste, his heart was. The people he “attacked” do not simply ...

If not now, when?

Dear Editor, If not us, then who? Who imagined that Trump would demand the separation of thousands of immigrating children from their parents? Most of the families are still separated, for 12 months or more. Or Trump’s refusals to all requests for documents and staff interviews by the ...

Tax increase?

Dear Editor, Our school board is getting ready to vote yes or no to a property tax increase. I think that there is no question that the vote should be NO. People cannot take anymore. One of the school board members even mentioned about people living on a fixed income. Do they have no ...
