Signing up for a COVID vaccine

Columns

I want to start with the fact that I love my mother. Now everything else below will be a rant on how ill-prepared I am to take care of anyone. Don’t worry about elder abuse here. I’m fine. I felt the same way when I was handed over each of my children. How in the world does anyone feel ...

The QAnon conspiracy theory

Columns

Doomsday cults and peddlers of conspiracy theories can be traced back to the Middle Ages. The most recent “We’re on the eve of destruction” group is QAnon, supposedly from “Q,” an “anonymous” internet poster. QAnon claims there is an international cabal of Satan-worshiping, ...

Stec opposes election reform

Letters to the editor

To the editor: Dan Stec was recently elected as our New York state senator. One of his first actions was to oppose election reforms. That appears to align with the national Republican voter suppression strategy. I wanted to know why Mr. Stec voted NO on the following bills, so I contacted ...

Pay to protect environment

Letters to the editor

To the editor: The “Comptroller questions if DEC funding is enough” article indicates, maybe, elected government officials recognize the lack of capital resources available for environmental restoration of polluted land and water resources and preservation of our natural areas. The ...

To the editor: To you and the Enterprise staff involved in the editorial to stay home — thank you for having the courage to write the truth and make all of us in journalism look good. I own two weekly papers along Route 20 — Waterville Times and West Winfield Star. We have lost ...

Stefanik’s defense of M.T. Greene

Letters to the editor

To the editor: Rep Stefanik insults our intelligence with her manipulative nonsense about her defense of Rep. M.T. Greene. She attacks the Democrats by calling it a “power grab.” What? Greene was removed from, of all things, the Education Committee. There are two video clips of her ...

Stand up with Elise Stefanik

Letters to the editor

To the editor: Finally, someone is sticking up for the North Country and fighting back against King Cuomo and his bullies! Although this is long overdue, it is time for all of us to urge our New York state representatives to follow in Congresswoman Stefanik’s footsteps and stand up and ...

Black History Month is time for learning

Editorials

The past eight months, in many ways, have served as a new reckoning for our nation in dealing with race. The resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, and the anger and riots that followed, were a stark reminder to the nation that, more ...

Traffic crashes are not ‘accidents’

Columns

If you are a reader of these weekly articles on traffic law and traffic safety, you are aware that I never write about traffic accidents — I always refer to them as crashes or collisions. In fact, I have written full articles, the most recent one in May 2019, trying to get people and news ...

Cookies for Carnival!

Happy Carnival! It’s February — and time for Carnival! Saranac Lake’s Winter Carnival is a long tradition which begun in 1897 as a one-day event. It has become a 10-day celebration. But this year, the Carnival Committee is asking the tourists and visitors to stay home. The past ...

Be safe and smart for Super Bowl

Editorials

We can still watch the Super Bowl with friends and extended family on Sunday, even during the COVID-19 pandemic — we just have to do it with everyone at their own home. Many of us would be conversing with our friends anyway by social media, text or phone. Do it that way. Here’s what the ...

News of the Tri-Lakes, Sept. 2, 1948

Columns

Let me tell you, 72 years ago there was a lot of competition for the Adirondack Daily Enterprise. Never mind about the Plattsburgh and Malone newspapers that were on the newsstands in our three mountain villages, but there was also the Syracuse Post-Standard, with a full-time correspondent ...

Breathe easier about your baby’s bronchiolitis

See St. Gaudens’ work in Vermont

Letters to the editor

To the editor: Sir, your article on the (Will) Low, (Robert Louis) Stevenson, (Augustus) St. Gaudens relationship was most enjoyable (Feb. 4 Hunter’s Home column by Mike Delahant). You might want to add that there is a National Park with his work and history within an easy day’s ...

Please don’t come for Winter Carnival

Editorials

“Stay home.” That is what Winter Carnival Committee Chairman Jeff Branch has to say to people thinking of coming to Saranac Lake for our annual frigid festivities. He’s right. Please, if you are thinking of taking a drive up to Saranac Lake to see the Ice Palace and maybe the ...

Winter Carnival 2021

Columns

Ever since it was announced that Winter Carnival events were minimized this year, I’ve heard someone or other, either in person or on social media, carping about it. And every time their sad refrain reaches my jaded ears or eyes, my gorge rises. Dig this: The last thing anyone in My ...

Secret vote

Letters to the editor

To the editor: Elise Stefanik and her fellow cowardly Republican House members held a vote behind closed doors last night that left Rep. Liz Cheney in her leadership role. Amazingly, 61 members of the House voted to strip Rep. Cheney of her position. Were you one of them, Ms. Stefanik? ...

Why do we care about the whale but not the fish?

Letters to the editor

To the editor: January brought the shocking news that a group of fisherman off the coast of Taiji had drowned a minke whale. The whale had been trapped in their fishing nets 19 days prior, on Christmas Eve. The fishermen tied a rope around its tail fin and forced its head beneath the ...
