Letters to the editor

My heart’s opinion

To the editor: It feels like every day there is more news about how the Trump administration is traumatizing immigrant children and families. Children are held in cages, sleeping on concrete floors and denied toothbrushes. These conditions are not due to a lack of resources; they are due ...

So much for the governor’s energy plan, part 2

To the editor: In an earlier to the editor (Adirondack Daily Enterprise, Aug. 31) I calculated what would be needed to build a solar-electric power plant (SPP) to replace the soon-to-be-closed 2,000 MWe Indian Point Energy Center in Westchester County. A consortium of foreign ...

The pool is warm

To the editor: A while ago, I mentioned to a friend that I was enjoying aqua aerobics at the North Country Community College pool. She responded, “Isn’t it cold?” I was happy to tell her that was ancient history! Years ago, the pool had a well-deserved reputation for frigid ...

Ingenuity inspires

To the editor: I love touring by bicycle. My old Cannondale puts me within reach of the people along the way. I’ll never forget the first time I bicycled down the Baja Peninsula back in the ’80s. The Federal Republic had built three or four new El Presidente hotels strategically placed ...

Latham man’s obituary sends strong message on smoking

To the editor: “If you’re a smoker — quit now.” These words ring out loud and clear in a powerful obituary written by Geoffrey Turner, a Latham man who passed away earlier this year. Instead of reflecting on his personal or career accomplishments, Turner used his obituary to send ...

Grateful for landowners who support public access

In regard to fire hydrants

To the editor: I own a home in the village and pay all my taxes. I had noticed that some fire hydrants in town don’t work. As a payer of village taxes, I feel that the village should prioritize fire hydrants so they are all operational. It would be a tragedy if someone’s house burned ...

Save America

To the editor: Tell me America are you ready to die? Yes, America, are you ready to die because of this so-called president? You know, the one who wants to become president again in 2020. The one who wants to start war with other people or countries like China or Korea. The one ...

Reunion helpers

To the editor: From Aug. 15 though 18, St. Pius X and Saranac Lake High School celebrated our 50th reunion. It was a wonderful time had by all, and we want to take the time to thank the businesses who supported our very successful four-day event. We would like to thank the following: ...

We can prevent suicide

To the editor: Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States, but it can be prevented! I had a personal experience with this myself, when I lost my mother to suicide in 1991 and my cousin only three weeks ago. During National Suicide Prevention Week, Sept. 8 to 14, ...

Thank you to Lindy Ellis

To the editor: Connection. Caring. Thoughtful. Personable. These are simple yet huge, meaningful words when it comes to Lindy Ellis. I see her visiting the Adult Center often. You can see her support in and around our community by just picking up the newspaper or checking her Facebook ...

Saying goodbye to Saranac Lake

To the editor: It is with mixed feelings of joy and sadness that I am announcing my retirement effective Sept. 25. It has been my pleasure and privilege to live in Saranac Lake for over 30 years. I have made more friends here than I can count, raised a family, and had a successful and ...

Many thanks from Northern Current

To the editor:  Hobofest: some pretty big shoes to fill. We, the organizers of Northern Current, were humbled at the task, and we are humbled at the overwhelming support from the community in carrying on the tradition of this very Saranac Lake event. It truly took a community to create ...

Enterprise misses Stefanik’s hypocrisy

To the editor: I am writing to express my dissatisfaction with your newspaper’s coverage of Rep. Elise Stefanik, which acts to promote her activities and positions while failing to point out her hypocrisy. The weekend’s latest mass shooting only highlights the pressure to hold Stefanik ...

Hamburg revisted

To the editor: Had many good comments to my Aug. 25 Guest Commentary. One was that it was too short. Here is the rest of the story. The elephant in the room with Germany is the Holocaust. Other countries, including ours, have oppressed and killed minorities. None has done it with such ...
