Letters to the editor

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 ...

Legion Post 326 golf tournament thanks

To the editor: The members of American Legion Post 326 extend a sincere “THANK YOU” to the 47 hole sponsors and 15 businesses that donated prizes and to the 80 golfers who participated in the Don Edgley Classic Golf Tournament Aug. 18; it was the best ever. The top golfers were Brad ...

Lindy Ellis should be re-elected

To the editor: This letter is written in support of Lindy Ellis to be re-elected to the Franklin County legislature. Lindy and I worked together as colleagues for over 35 years at Corning Inc. Over that time I found her to be a resourceful, rigorous and very sucessful problem solver, ...

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 ...

Keep Ellis as our strong voice in Malone

To the editor: Lindy Ellis is our strong voice in Malone. Since June 2018 she has served as Franklin County legislator for the towns of Franklin and Harrietstown. As such, Lindy advocated successfully for the Franklin County road repair schedule for road repairs: county routes 55 and ...

Support for Lindy Ellis

To the editor: Lindy Ellis has been our Franklin County legislator for the towns of Franklin and Harrietstown since June 2018, and I firmly believe Lindy has our back. She has stepped up not only for those of us who live in those towns but for Franklin County as a whole. She’s put a lot ...

Thanks for backing Back Pack Program

To the editor: The Lake Placid Back Pack Program would like to thank the American Legion Post 326 and all the individuals and businesses that donated money and school supplies to help less fortunate families be prepared for the up coming school year. We could not do this every year ...

More on gun control (with a ‘spin’)

To the editor: I, like many of my fellow Americans, are sickened by the latest rhetoric of Donald Trump where he no longer considers “universal background checks” that important. At an August rally in New Hampshire, he did not even mention UBCs as appropriate action — a 180-degree ...

Time to call out Trump’s hate

To the editor: Up until now, I have believed that the best way to defeat Donald Trump in 2020 has been to focus on advocating for the federal government to do more to help the lower and middle classes with their economic and financial struggles to survive and to pay their bills. So I have ...

So much for the governor’s energy plan

To the editor: Gov. Andrew Cuomo has called for 70% of New York’s energy to come from renewable sources by 2030 (see https://www.nyserda.ny.gov/All-Programs/Programs/Clean-Energy-Standard/Renewable-Portfolio-Standard/RPS-Documents) and Gov. Cuomo has touted solar power as a benign, ...

The legislature must restore election transparency

To the editor: This past June, the state’s highest court dealt a heavy blow to election transparency. For years, New Yorkers have been able to request, via the Freedom of Information Law, electronic copies of ballot scans from their local board of elections. These images have absolutely ...

Vote for River Drivers as name of baseball team

To the editor: The naming process for the proposed Tupper Lake semi-professional baseball team has taken on a life of its own. What should have been a fun and exciting occasion has become divisive and nasty. What we do agree on is that it will be a wonderful addition to our community to ...

Saranac Lake Lions Club thanks Fusion Market

To the editor: On Sunday, Aug. 8, the Saranac Lake Lions Club hosted a bottle and can drive to benefit the Adirondack Council (a conservation group that works to preserve our local water, air and wild lands). The fundraiser was held in the parking lot of Fusion Market at 111 River St., ...

Words matter

To the editor: I am not going back. Really. I’m an immigrant, and I love America. When I arrived in the U.S., I didn’t speak English. I was fluent in Hebrew and Polish. But I learned quickly. Just a little more than a year after my arrival, I won a $25 bond for an essay I wrote ...
