Letters to the editor

Bike safety on our Adirondack roads

To the editor: While traveling this spring in northern Georgia on a cycling vacation, Karen and I encountered some of the best cycling roads and safety signage. We had a wonderful experience! Riding the Adirondack roads can have its challenges, but cyclists travel from all over the world ...

Bad air days

To the editor: Glynis Hart’s excellent story about smog and climate change (“Smog hits Whiteface: Adirondack Council sues EPA”) left two incorrect impressions with your readers. Both were entirely my fault. First: Not all of the smokestack pollution that causes ozone in the ...

Re: Supreme Court judge’s time at Albany Law School

To the editor: On June 9 you published a great column by Paul Herrmann titled “A charming Supreme Courtship.” I would like to clarify that Supreme Court Justice Robert Jackson did attend two semesters at Albany Law School and received a degree. Jackson’s path to legal practice and bar ...

Tedra Cobb for the 21st District

To the editor: As we watch as the current occupant of the White House, without consulting Congress, overturns critical regulations that protect the environment, consumers and workers, while at the same time claiming that he is above the rule of law and can pardon himself, and then as we ...

Questions for Lindy Ellis

To the editor: As a taxpayer in the town of Harrietstown as well as Franklin County, I find Ms. Ellis’ abstaining from voting on the issue facing North Country Community College unacceptable and deplorable. She stated, “I don’t know enough about this.” Well, Ms. Ellis, it is now your ...

Impressed by Emily Martz

To the editor: When I asked her where she stands on issues important to me — she did not ask me what I thought. She looked me straight in the eye and told me. No long, vague, convoluted answers. When I asked her about our president, she said she is not running against or for him; she is ...

Cobb is once-in-a-lifetime choice

To the editor: I have remained an independent voter for the past 40 years, but today I regret that because I am not registered as a Democrat I cannot vote for Tedra Cobb in the upcoming primary election on June 26. The only chance I might have to vote for this once-in-a-lifetime regional ...

Give employees cancer screens

To the editor: The Cancer Services Program of Clinton County would like to thank the Hospice of the North Country for adding a benefit for their employees, a policy which will give them paid time off for cancer screenings. Our program encourages businesses to participate in this statewide ...

Golf tournament helps football team

To the editor: The Saranac Lake 5th Quarter Club held its sixth annual Golf Tournament on Saturday June 2 at the Saranac Lake Golf Course. The 5th Quarter Club would like to say thank you to all who attended, Tony and the Saranac Lake Golf Club, and a thank-you to the following people and ...

L.P. Quinn helps hospice

To the editor and hospice supporters: On Tuesday, June 5, High Peaks Hospice held its 26th annual Radio Day. We’d like to thank the principal, Dr. Michele Pinard, and staff of L.P. Quinn Elementary School for hosting our event this year. Special thanks to the outstanding teachers and ...

Poem: ‘The Sun Shone Through the Glade’

To the editor: It was the part of the day when the sun shone more sideways through the glade where leaves take on an almost flourescent shade of green after a rain in the early tender days of spring. I looked to see a more worthy recipient of such beauty and grew more grateful as the cares ...

Cobb for a better NY-21

To the editor: I’ve observed our current congresswoman in NY-21 disingenuously bob, weave, smile, hide and otherwise skew and obfuscate the truth for far too long. She has done this while blatantly voting against her constituents’ best interest on important and even life-saving issues ...

Good faith and fair dealing by local gov’t?

To the editor: Recently, I was pretty astonished to read that Essex County has spent somewhere north of $20,000 over litigation over disclosure of voting records. It’s pretty clear that a pattern is coming to light were local government makes a bank shot (footnote 1) into its insurance to ...

Why vote for Ratigan?

To the editor: Mr. Ratigan’s candidacy for the Democratic nomination for the 21st Congressional District has brought surprising baggage to this contest. The incumbent Republican, Congresswoman Stefanik, has supported the president’s call and voted to rescind the Affordable Care Act, with ...

A veteran’s thanks

To the editor: Memorial Day 2018 has come and gone, and with it the ceremonies, speeches and remembrances that make it not only the unofficial beginning of summer but the yearly national check-up of our patriotic spirit. The Adirondack Daily Enterprise once again dedicated its front page to ...

In support of Lindy Ellis

To the editor: We, the undersigned, congratulate Lindy Ellis on her appointment to the Franklin County Legislature as representative for District 7. She is a capable and accomplished woman, with a record of service on the boards of directors of local development and community organizations. ...

Lindy Ellis will serve Franklin County

To the editor: I live on the fringe of Saranac Lake in Essex County, but I lived in Saranac Lake and Harrietstown for 13 years and worked in Franklin County for 30 years. Franklin County continues to hold my interest for the reason that the quality of living and working in our Adirondack ...

Support Tedra Cobb for Congress

To the editor: I’ve known Tedra Cobb for 18 years, when we met in Canton at the initial 21st Century Project session hosted by the Northern New York Community Foundation. During that day, I was awed and impressed by this North Country native’s knowledge of our region: its strengths, ...

Ratigan is right that ‘we can fix this’

To the editor: New York 21, the primary is June 26, and we have choices to make once again in the political arena. Dylan Ratigan is running in our district. Maybe you have seen him at one of his many stops around NY-21. Maybe you have checked out his website, DylanRatigan.com. At one ...

Amid broken politics, Martz seems like the right candidate

To the editor: I am continually trying to understand the underlying reasons as to why I am so disappointed in the failure of our federal elected officials to pass a balanced budget, to propose legislation that will make health care or food available to those who need it, to take seriously ...
