LGBTQ rights forum coming

Letters to the editor

To the editor: In the past several years, we have seen an outpouring of hate, attempts at overt discrimination, and attempted rollback of basic human rights protections on the federal level. We are facing a potential crisis in the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn issues previously deemed ...

Tupper Lake is peaceful, safe

Letters to the editor

To the editor: An individual bemoans constitutional freedom in his published letter to the editor. He’s mad at Confederate flags in Tupper Lake and “social skeletons.” Whatever he dreams they are. People really, really, really, really like Tupper Lake. It is peaceful, safe and ...

Stec wants his check

Letters to the editor

To the editor: I asked him to help find my car from the 1980 Winter Olympics. He didn’t. I asked him to move out of the county buildings to make way for the Essex County bar association. He won’t. I see him trying to find an issue with the voters to promote. He ...

Integrity matters

Letters to the editor

To the editor: Elise Stefanik does not deserve to represent NY-21. She has failed to show leadership but actively works to manipulate and misinform her constituents, as the president does. Stefanik approves of local Republicans soliciting, then paying a child to secretly ...

Loads of letters

Editorials

You might not know this if the Enterprise is the only newspaper you read, but there are papers all over this nation that don’t get many letters to the editor. Whether it’s due to politeness or apathy or disconnectedness, that’s a form of social distancing that does no good for ...

The Bloomingdale High School

Columns

Thanks to my cousin Nancy Howard Heath, I have a history treasure — a photo of all students attending the Bloomingdale High School and the Elementary School in 1931-1932, a photo of the high school and a pile of copies of the school’s monthly student newspaper. Nancy’s parents were ...

Clean water or safe roads? The Adirondacks shouldn’t have to choose

Columns

In today’s divisive political atmosphere, it’s surprising to find legislation that enjoys widespread bipartisan support. Here’s one: the Adirondack Road Salt Reduction Task Force and Pilot Program. If signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, this pilot program will set the course for clean water and ...

Take polls seriously, not literally

Letters to the editor

To the editor: There is always a tendency to disregard polls through motivated reasoning. When partisans are down in the polls, they invent excuses for why the numbers are wrong. When they are up in the polls, they try to downplay it. They want to avoid depressing their voter turnout. ...

Why to vote for Cobb and Biden

Letters to the editor

To the editor: On Tuesday, Nov. 3, we have a chance to vote for affordable available health care, a cleaner environment, the continuation of Social Security, and Medicare. There are politicians who divide us and try to block these important issues. Our current congresswoman and president ...

Seeing Trump from both sides

Letters to the editor

To the editor: Sometimes we look at a picture and see two different images, like the Rubin vase. I thought about how Trump has been viewed by Democrats and portrayed by the media. You see Trump as a racist; I see him helping Blacks with opportunity zones and criminal justice ...

Dems for Senate, Assembly

Letters to the editor

To the editor: In all the excitement over the presidential and congressional races, many people forget that we have very important New York state races happening now. Kimberly Davis is running for a seat in the state Senate vacated by Betty Little. Davis is the current treasurer for ...

You are not a Republican if you vote for Biden

Letters to the editor

To the editor: For too long I have listened to or read about Republicans who have stated that they will be voting for Joe Biden, and I’m fed up with them. The Democrats have threatened to destroy America’s representative democracy by eliminating the legislative filibuster, ...

Cobb will serve us with respect

Letters to the editor

To the editor: Thirty years ago I traveled to Washington, D.C., as a lobbyist for the National School Boards Association with my colleagues from around the nation. At the beginning of the second congressional term, we met with our representatives to discuss matters such as the Family and ...

Cobb has my vote

Letters to the editor

To the editor: Electing Tedra Cobb is key to moving us from surviving to thriving. Tedra has lived here in the North Country for 30 years. She has raised a family here with her husband Scott. A graduate of SUNY Potsdam, Tedra has worked in our communities, volunteered in our ...

Just to remind ourselves

Letters to the editor

To the editor: Just to remind ourselves: It is not normal for a sickness that has killed almost a quarter of a million people in America, and over a million people worldwide, to be labeled by anyone as “nothing to worry about.” It is not normal for experts — in medicine, ...

Stefanik has earned our vote

Letters to the editor

To the editor: Friends in the 21st Congressional District: If you are a veteran, a U.S. citizen trapped in another country trying to return home, if you or a member of your family requires Veterans Administration assistance, or if you are a corrections or police officer or EMT personnel: ...

Stefanik should apologize

Letters to the editor

To the editor: To Elise Stefanik: I read the article in the Oct. 14 Adirondack Daily Enterprise entitled “Stefanik pins Trump death wishes on Voters for Change, Cobb.” After your office was contacted with clarification and the facts regarding the Oct. 3 Adirondack Daily Enterprise ...

The 21st District deserves better

Letters to the editor

To the editor: As Election Day approaches and voters pay increased attention to the candidates, it’s a good time to consider their pedigrees and their records — beyond the self-aggrandizing advertisements that continually bombard voters. If consistency and adherence to principle are ...

Fresh air and fresh food

Columns

“Ample food is necessary to health.” This adage was a founding principle of the fresh-air cure for tuberculosis. The fresh-air cure had three tenets: fresh air, good food and plenty of rest. Saranac Lake was famous for its clear mountain air, but we also knew a thing or two about food. ...

The great escape

Columns

For years, my favorite coffee shop was Alice’s (previously named Betty’s, before that Bernie’s, and it’s now Cape Air). As far as I was concerned, it had everything going for it. The coffee was La Touraine’s highest octane — a sure way to either jump-start your heart (or send it ...
