Mountains & Valleys

November 5, 2012
Editorial by the Adirondack Daily Enterprise: Publisher Catherine Moore, Managing Editor Peter Crowley

Mountains of praise to Saranac Lake police for making the village's annual Downtown Trick or Treating safe by blocking off the roads. We also thank our downtown businesses that were generous, welcoming everyone inside and giving out tons of candy. It is a great community event that helps make Halloween safe for families with little children and older ones year after year.

Valleys of annoyance to the automated phone calls from politicians, which are extremely intrusive. While we expect to see political advertising in the traditional media, there is the choice to ignore if we chose. However, when we receive a phone call at home, we answer it expecting someone wants to talk with us, not an automated voice computer talking at us. Politicians might feel this is a good way of connecting with voters; we believe the opposite.

Mountains of help from the North Country are now pouring downstate to help victims of Hurricane Sandy. While our local fire departments are already come back from helping on Long Island, there are also other individuals, groups and organizations planning relief. To find out how you can help, watch for articles or ads in the coming days and weeks in the Enterprise.

Valleys to all the break-ins that have recently plagued our area. Even with the recent drug busts, there are still desperate people out looking for easy prey to support their habits. We remind everyone to take extra precautions by locking your house and even your car when running into the store. We encourage everyone to be vigilant and report anything suspicious to the police.

Mountains of applause go to the Tupper Lake girls soccer team, which advanced to the Section X, Class C championship game for the second straight year. The Lumberjacks weren't able to overcome Canton, but they had another strong season, and we're proud of them.

---

Mountains of praise also go to the Lake Placid boys soccer team, which won the Section VII, Class C title on Thursday - the school's first boys soccer title. The players and new coach Stuart Helmsley deserve a hearty pat on the back.

Mountains of cheering, finally, to the Red Storm football team for another win this weekend, this time over Ogdensburg. They are looking great, but so is the always-tough Hoosick Falls team, which the Red Storm plays Saturday. Hoosick Falls has been Saranac Lake's nemesis in past years, and the Panthers have crushed opponents this season. Thus, the Storm enters this match in the rare position of being the underdog. Let's cheer them all the way to the state championship!
