Letters to the editor

Thank you from Operation Christmas Child

To the editor: Thank you to all the individuals, groups and churches that participated in assembling shoebox gifts for children around the world as part of Operation Christmas Child. The High Peaks Church drop-off location sent 1,294 shoeboxes to Plattsburgh as the next stop on their ...

No devils here

To the editor: Dear neighbor: Like you, I do not like to be lumped together in a group with a random label slapped on it by someone in the media, or by anyone, for that matter, who then explains to others what I believe and predicts how I will act. Like you, I voted, and like you, I ...

National Hospice Month

To the editor: High Peaks Hospice is a valuable service and a resource to everyone. In November, we are reminded during National Hospice Month of our opportunity to refresh our knowledge. It helps to be informed as, at any time, we may find we need hospice services for ourselves or a loved ...

Writer doesn’t know about Civil War

To the editor: I reply to the recent letter of Mr. Wayne Leonard (Adirondack Daily Enterprise, Nov. 11). Mr. Leonard, you express displeasure that your unqualified identification of the Army of the Potomac as a Confederate army (ADE, Oct. 15) drew my derision. But that’s loving ...

Cut believers a break

To the editor: Your Nov. 18 Opinion page delivers quite a one-two punch to religion, with a Guest Commentary documenting decline in belief, and breezily concluding that’s probably just fine, followed by a letter arguing against taking the whole freedom of religion thing too ...

It’s time to talk turkey

To the editor: It’s time to talk turkey, and I don’t mean Thanksgiving.  Many Americans have been lulled into believing that Facebook and the dark web provide reliable information. Yet these sources spread conspiracy theories and disinformation, which result in collective delusion. ...

Gratitude

To the editor: Of all the pats on the back and well wishes for serving my country, the thanks from all the Spadaros and the genuine love displayed by St. Bernard’s School give me hope in these troubled times. Many hugs and prayers to you by all. God bless, and thank you. Thomas W. ...

Confederate flags show much work to do

To the editor: This past October I read an article in the Adirondack Daily Enterprise that aired the issue of Confederate flags flying on the properties of residents of Tupper Lake. Even though the Tupper Lake town board has since condemned any form of racism in its community, I still feel ...

People make this region great

To the editor: To the citizens of Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties: I have spent nearly all my memorable life in the North Country, and I feel blessed to still call this region my home. For me, it is not the mountains, the beautiful lake, or the nearly perfect proximity to adventure ...

Wear a mask

To the editor: Wear your masks! People, what is the matter with you? Why can’t you just follow the rules? Wear your mask! I, for one, am sick and tired of seeing you people not wearing your masks. Don’t you care? Don’t you want your friends and family safe and well? Gov. Cuomo ...

Let Trump challenge

To the editor: Elections! Golden Rule ... Please give President Trump what anyone deserves in these circumstances ... what you would deserve: a fair count ... and the brief time to challenge, as allowed by the Constitution. Also important, Biden is not president-elect. Second, Gore ...

VFW Post 3357 raffle thanks

To the editor: The VFW Auxiliary Post 3357 would like thank Kinney Drugs and Coakley Home and Hardware for allowing us to sell our Money Raffle tickets at their stores. The winners of the money raffle are as follows: Two $50 prizes go to Ruth Mader and Wallace Gnaedinger, a $100 prize goes ...

Rebuttal on religious rights

To the editor: I feel compelled to respond to the letter to the editor by Ben Douglass dated Nov. 12, entitled “Reasons for concern about Democrats in charge.” In his letter, Mr. Douglass implies that Mr. Biden, Ms. Harris and Democrats in general are out to obliterate the First ...

Dems should stand up to Republicans

To the editor: I’m baffled by what I see and hear from the Democrats about this shameful Republican effort to steal the election from Biden ... NOTHING! Where are the protests about this immoral effort to steal the election? Where are the voices? I see and hear virtually ...

Sobering fact or fiction?

To the editor: I am writing this in response to an opinion piece in the Nov. 10 issue titled “Amid Democrats’ White house win, a sobering fact.” The piece laments that the Democratic Party has forgotten about white working-class nongraduates; the victims of globalization who lost ...

Open letter to Elise Stefanik

To the editor: Open letter to Rep. Elise Stefanik: Although I personally do not subscribe to Twitter, you do. Since Nov. 4 you have tweeted several times regarding the results of the election. You have touted the 32 seats that women won in the recent election and the right of the ...

Help United Way help others

To the editor: Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties are great places to live, work and raise a family. I have been fortunate to be welcomed like family here and couldn’t imagine a better place to live. Part of what makes this area such a great place is the people; there is a great sense ...

The real story

To the editor: When reviewing various newspaper articles, many disturbing events seem to be overlooked. Donald Trump has recently fired several people after the election. It has been noted in several articles that he has recently fired the persons in charge of the nuclear stockpile, ...

Reasons to save the Debar Pond Lodge

To the editor: To Steven Guglielmi, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation: My wife and I support the preservation of the Debar Pond Lodge. Here is an idea that might make it an active asset instead of a liability for New York state. Lease it out to a lodging company or ...
