Letters to the editor

Unbelievable

To the editor: Disgusting, disturbing, foul, gross, selfish, lazy are a few words that I use to describe what I saw in your community. While driving to Lake Placid last week, I stopped at the Tupper Lake Municipal Park at the north end of the village. I was shocked to find one bag of ...

2021 hope

To the editor: Looking outside today, I see a bright white winter day of hope. As Joe Biden said on the eve of his inauguration, while he was honoring and remembering the unimaginable number of people lost to COVID, “To heal, we must remember. It’s hard sometimes to remember, but ...

Shame on Elise

To the editor: My opinion is that Elise Stefanik knows better but has chosen to align herself with conspiracy theories in order to maintain her popularity with what’s left of the Trump base. I suspect his base will gradually come to grips with the reality of democracy, that being that ...

Who does Stefanik think she is?

To the editor: It recently dawned on me that Elise must think that she knows better than what the voters and public officials in the states she believes held a fraudulent election this past November. I do not see anyone from Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and Georgia joining in with her ...

NIMBY tries to stop a good marina

To the editor: In response to the article that appeared in today’s Enterprise regarding another delay for the Lower Saranac Marina, I say enough is enough. As covered by this paper, the project was seeking to develop and rejuvenate an old, dilapidated, previously established marina ...

Marina deserves to prevail

To the editor: I support the Saranac Lake Marina and all the great work it has undertaken to provide an environmentally sound place for the people of Tri-Lakes enjoy our great lakes. Mr. Jorling is once again attempting to disrupt the rightful use of the lake by not only the Saranac ...

We’re all like 12-year-olds

To the editor: When I was a college student, the most impressive thing that I ever learned took place in a philosophy course. The professor told us that a philosopher by the name of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin was well known for saying that, at present, humankind is at the emotional, ...

What happened, Rep. Stefanik?

To the editor: Ms. Stefanik: You have refused to impeach Donald Trump. If inciting a mob to violence against the people’s representatives and democratic process (and also trying to get the Georgia secretary of state to commit voter fraud) isn’t reason enough for impeachment, what ...

‘Profiles of cowardice’

To the editor: Speaking of Trump supporters who stormed the U.S. Capitol building, ultra-conservative congressional Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyoming, stated: “There is no question that the president formed the mob. The president incited the mob. The president addressed the mob.”  Former ...

Shame on Mr. Jorling

To the editor: We are in total agreement with the recent letter to the editor from Mr. Robert Schiller. Do Mr. Jorling and the Adirondack Park Agency not realize, apart from the pleasure enjoyed by the people who use the marina, they are hindering the growth of a wonderful business that ...

School district raises limit for senior exemption

To the editor: The Board of Education for the Lake Placid Central School District has just passed a resolution increasing its Senior Citizens’ Exemption limit to $36,400. This limit will go into effect on the 2021 tax roll, which will be published on July 1. Please keep in mind that this ...

JBL! statement on events at US Capitol

To the editor: John Brown Lives! is deeply troubled by the events that unfolded at the United States Capitol on Jan. 6 and strongly condemns the display of White supremacy and racist violence we witnessed in Washington, D.C., in an attempt to undermine our democratic system. The stark ...

Trump could stop it

To the editor: President Trump could stop any potential violence right now. He could stand up and say, “I lied! I didn’t want to admit defeat. It was hard for me.” After watching his brief remarks this morning (Tuesday) on the White House lawn, it is profoundly obvious that he is ...

Stefanik made first mistake of her career

To the editor: Until Wednesday afternoon, I thought Stefanik was bulletproof. I wouldn’t have put it all on the line to try and challenge her again. Even as she bet against her political roots and track record of level-headed decisions for a ride on the Trump 2024 train, it all seemed to ...

Embarrassed

To the editor: On Jan. 4, Rep. Stefanik released a video in which she stated, “I am committed to restoring the faith of the American people in our election — that they are free, fair, secure and according to the U.S. Constitution.” The video was flagged for her false statements about ...

Elise Stefanik — intelligence corrupted

To the editor: Many Adirondack Daily Enterprise readers have submitted insightful letters critical of NY-21 U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik for her defense of President Donald Trump. Let’s face it — many congressional Republicans are easily misled by a demagogue like Trump. However, Elise ...

Why, Elise?

To the editor: I just don’t get Rep. Elise Stefanik. To her credit, I called one of her offices two years ago asking for help with a portion of my health care coverage (I’m a retired veteran) and was very impressed with the results, for which I remain grateful. I just don’t ...

The shame of Stefanik

To the editor: Shame on you, Congresswoman Stefanik. You and your master, President Trump, have encouraged and fomented the division and hatred that culminated in the Jan. 6 attack by the executive branch on the legislative branch. Never before in our nation’s history has the executive ...

Non-shoreowners rely on Saranac Lake Marina

To the editor: On Sept. 14, 2020, the Adirondack Park Agency issued a determination granting a variance and wetland permit with conditions, authorizing Saranac Lake Marina to renovate and expand its marina, located in a hamlet area on Lower Saranac Lake. The agency found that the ...

GOP voter calls for new rep

To the editor: I am writing in reference to the controversy surrounding Rep. Stefanik and her support of the president, and his actions on the day of Jan. 6. I have been a supporter of the president and Rep. Stefanik in the past, and although not a registered Republican, I have voted ...
