Letters to the editor

Our lawn sign

To the editor: Saranac Lake resident John Edelberg so disliked the multilingual “Hate Has No Home Here” sign he saw on private property overlooking Moody Pond that he wrote to this newspaper about it (“A militant sign,” Aug. 5). As one of several homeowners who display such signs at ...

Love has no political party

To the editor: What have we come to when proclaiming lack of hate has become political? Hate should have no home in either party! Holly Wolff Saranac Lake

21st District needs new representation

To the editor: The president’s incompetent handling of the COVID-19 threat, his denial of the pandemic’s severity, his blaming the Chinese for intentionally spreading the virus, his spreading false, dangerous “cures,” and his intentional denigrating of Dr. Fauci, the U.S. Centers ...

Endorsements prove Stefanik’s bipartisanship

To the editor: I am repeatedly in awe at Elise Stefanik’s bipartisanship. It is part of what makes her such a great representative. As a New York Republican, I believe first and foremost in electing a representative who will work across the aisle. In a blue state, it is important to ...

Reply to attack on Heartbeat International

To the editor: I read Sam Balzac’s letter to you of Aug. 5 with interest. In it, he decries the very presence of Heartbeat International in Saranac Lake as “an attack on women’s rights.” His position is an archetypical example of everything wrong with the agenda of the radical ...

America’s future in the balance

To the editor: I would like to urge you to support New York’s existing law calling for the election of the president by a national popular vote of the people in all 50 states. When we vote for every other office, the candidate who gets the most votes wins. It should be the same for ...

Town of Tupper Lake needs to stop speeders

To the editor: Regarding the article in the Tupper Lake (Free Press) paper as of July 22 about speeding complaints, I think the town needs to wake up. They should be able to respond better to taxpayers’ concerns before someone gets hurt by speeders. The supervisor of this town does ...

State troopers need anti-bias training

To the editor: I was very impressed by Peter Crowley’s front-page article, “Driving While Black.” I love that the Enterprise was liberal enough to report on the panel discussion put on by the Adirondack Diversity Intiative. I had heard the Dominick Boone story before. I found it ...

Not hate, but resolve against injustice

To the editor: John Edelberg’s letter, “A militant sign” (Adirondack Daily Enterprise, Aug. 4), offers a scathing critique of a neighbor and their sign that said, in multiple languages, “Hate has no home here.” Mr. Edelberg states, “It’s an icy reproof to persons supporting ...

A militant sign

To the editor: A property sign near Moody Pond reads (in several languages): “Hate Has No Home Here.” It’s an icy reproof to persons supporting immigration policies the owners disclaim as restrictive and hateful. “Hate” came into contemporary political parlance during the 2016 ...

Ol’ what’s-his-name

To the editor: Donald J. Trump is the president of the United States of America. Hillary Clinton is a washed-up wretch. Ol’ what’s-his-name is now running for president against Trump. Wait till Ol’ what’s-his-name begins to emerge from his basement bunker and speak. Ol’ ...

At least our area has ICU beds

To the editor: I read the poignant column by Kathryn Lamb in Lake Placid about the travails of her son suffering from vaping-related complications. One of the main concerns of the scientific and medical communities about the COVID-19 pandemic has not simply been the death rate of the virus ...

Let green groups buy Whitney Park

To the editor: To all you green groups that shut down the Tupper Lake project, why dont you buy the Whitney Park? You seem to have enough money. This state certainly doesn’t. We’re over $16 billion in debt thanks to the Trump virus. Ray Murray Saranac Lake

Keep Heartbeat International out of Saranac Lake

To the editor: “Thirty-five percent of suicidal behaviors among women may be attributable to abortion,” recites “Last Week Tonight”’s John Oliver. “Abortion also doubles the risk of breast cancer.” Oliver is reading out of a Heartbeat International handbook that the ...

Cobb cares about people over party

To the editor: In a time when each day brings more outrageous political news and policies that are developed based on perceptions rather than facts, one has to appreciate Tedra Cobb’s practical and rational approach to reopening schools. “We must listen to our teachers, local ...

DA explains her part in police investigation of off-duty officer

To the editor: In response to an article published July 28 by the (Albany) Times Union (and reprinted in the Enterprise July 29), regarding an investigation of an incident that occurred within Essex County at Lincoln Pond in Elizabethtown, titled “Off-duty Cohoes cop allegedly fired ...

I have the cleanest money (in verse)

  To the editor:  - They call me Mister President, the band plays when I enter. But I don’t lead the U.S.A.; I am its grand tormentor. -  I have great power, guns and ships, and missiles at the ready, but at the helm of leadership, my grip is not too ...

As people of faith …

To the editor: As people of faith, we are called to act in certain ways. We are exhorted to care for one another and the earth, to do justice, to refrain from hurting others, and to acknowledge the supremacy of our Creator. In the Christian tradition, as well as some others, we are also ...

Stefanik must go

To the editor: District 21 needs a congressional representative who works for us in Washington and tries to get some of the money our state pays into the federal budget back. Elise Stefanik is more loyal to Rand Paul, who brags about depriving New York state of its fair share in federal ...

Trump is a traitor

To the editor: During the past three-and-a-half years I have become convinced of one truth: Donald Trump is guilty of treason! I do not believe that any president is immune from a charge of treason. His actions as president have corrupted the administrative branch, led some in Congress ...
