A proposal for Lake Placid parking

ADE echoes Democrats

To the editor: I agree with Mr. Spadaro that the Adirondack Daily Enterprise and, I will add, the mainstream news has turned into an arm of the Democratic Party. I have complained to this paper about the same thing before. I also saw the political sign at the parade. The left can’t ...

ADE has anti-Republican tone

To the editor: I do not know how content of the Adirondack Daily Enterprise is determined, but to a fair-minded person such as myself, it sure is a far cry from fair and balanced. Article after article in the ADE paints a negative impression of OUR president, Congresswoman Stefanik and the ...

Winter Carnival Ice Palace thanks

To the editor: This winter started off as crazy as last regarding the weather. I was in favor of starting the Ice Palace on our usual date so we would have two weekends for the build. At a meeting to lay out the base of the palace, more reasonable heads convinced me to wait a week. That was ...

Organ donors are needed

To the editor: Feb. 14 was National Donor Day, a day to celebrate all organ, eye and tissue donors who have said “yes” to giving the gift of life. In April 2016, I was fortunate to undergo a kidney transplant from a registered donor. This year here in New York, Feb. 14 had extra ...

State should revive support for pre-K kids with disabilities

To the editor: I am writing this letter because I want to bring to everyone’s attention an important issue that seems to be lost amid Gov. Cuomo’s proposed investments to our area’s tourism industry. What about our children, specifically the youngest and neediest of them, infants to ...

Supporting Planned Parenthood

To the editor: I stand in firm support of Planned Parenthood, which provides valuable medical care to women and men in our communities, and the federal funds it receives to provide that care (and NOT abortions). Like so many others, when I was young and poorly insured, I took advantage of ...
