Letters to the Editor

Thanks for the horse rescue

To the editor: I would like to thank all the people on Averyville Road that helped rescue two of our horses that ventured out of our pasture. A few weeks ago, there were some moose sightings on Averyville. It turns out that the moose encountered our electric fence. Luckily the moose ...

Vote out Stefanik

To the editor: I drive River Road every day. Recently I saw Stefanik and Trump signs go up next to each other. The next day a Tedra Cobb sign went up next to Stefanik. Within 24 hours the Tedra Cobb sign was stolen, I assume by a Stefanik supporter. There it was, the only thing left was ...

Monitor Lake Placid’s busy crosswalks

To the editor: I am an individual who uses a seeing eye cane. On several occasions in Lake Placid, where I live, cars have not been stopping for me at designated crosswalks, despite having ample spatial notice. I have called the police a couple of times and have been told that the only thing ...

Time for younger citizens to get involved in local government positions

To the editor: The young generation in the Tri-Lakes is the future of our area and community. With many issues facing our region and few willing to publicly address the issues that could hinder the future potential of the young generation, most look to elders of the area to help the problems ...

Cultured-meat research needs more U.S. Senate support

To the editor: Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer should support government funding for cultured-meat research. For readers who aren’t aware, cultured meat is grown from cells, without slaughtering animals. It will benefit nonhuman welfare, public health and the ...

Stefanik weak on support for military

To the editor: As a United States Army veteran, I’m embarrassed being represented by Elise Stefanik in Congress. She shows a lack of concern about the military. She was with President Trump at Fort Drum when he was signing the John McCain National Defense Authorization Act. Neither she ...

Thank you from Lake Placid Elementary School

To the editor: The faculty and staff at the Lake Placid Elementary School are all so happy to be back at school with our students and seeing their smiling eyes every day. We have all been working very hard to ensure that the students are learning in a safe and happy environment, and it meant ...

Peduzzi will be missed in school’s kitchen

To the editor: It was with pleasure that we read your interview with retiring North Country School Head of Kitchen Paulette Peduzzi (Sept. 25 issue). Working at the school with Paulette for over 20 years was a valued experience for me. Paulette infused the North Country School kitchen ...

Vote for Tedra Cobb

To the editor: Here in Essex County we are living through a tragic and deadly situation as covid-19 infiltrated the Essex Center Nursing Home, formerly named Horace Nye. This facility was county-owned and run until 2014. It was highly regarded. I visited the facility prior to its sale with ...

ADK members, vote no to club giving you less of a voice

To the editor: I write regarding the proposed changes to the Adirondack Mountain Club (ADK) bylaws. Members have recently received ballots in order to vote for or against these new bylaws. I am a member of the Niagara Frontier Chapter. As a lawyer, I represented, for over 30 years, the ...

Receive free ‘Be Optimistic’ postcards

To the editor: Hello, I am a 17-year-old high school senior, and I’ve been making art cards for family and friends for years. I recently created Be Optimistic Postcards to help spread positivity through this pandemic. I understand that we all need something to look forward to in our lives. ...

People in mental health crisis need help

To the editor: Daniel Prude died during an arrest on March 30. He was in a mental health crisis (possibly drug-induced, but the cause is not the issue). He had been evaluated and released from an emergency room the previous day after a possible suicide attempt. Where was the 72-hour hold ...

United Way helps

To the citizens of Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties: Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties are great places to live and raise a family. I have said this for years and continue to believe it. Part of what makes this a great place to live is the people here. There is a great sense of ...

Cultured meat research

To the editor: Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden released a $2 trillion climate plan that won praise from the previously critical Sunrise Movement. Unfortunately, so far as I’m aware, the plan does not include funding for cultured-meat research. For those who don’t know, ...

Lawn sign removed

To the editor: To my North Country neighbors: During the night someone removed our Tedra Cobb lawn sign. We are deeply saddened and angered that someone finds this acceptable behavior. Yes, we may differ with you on the subject of our representative to Congress, but this is a country where ...

Trail usage

To the editor: People have inhabited the Adirondacks for hundreds of years, sharing land and properties, but when people are asked to share public trails, they are up in arms. While the trails belong to everybody, some people think that they belong to specific groups, such as only hikers ...

Great reporting

To the editor: I would like to thank Elizabeth Izzo for her great reporting. The most recent story of the COVID-19 outbreak at Essex Center was extremely well-written. A very professional and factual explanation of the situation. Being a news reporter is usually a thankless job and I know ...

Thanks for a great send-off at the paper

To the editor: The communities the Adirondack Daily Enterprise reaches and the individuals it engages are amazing. I discovered this when I retired. The outpouring of well wishes had taken me by surprise and left me so grateful to have had the opportunity to have met and known so many people ...

To the editor: In response to an article published July 28 by the (Albany) Times Union (and reprinted in the Enterprise July 29), regarding an investigation of an incident that occurred within Essex County at Lincoln Pond in Elizabethtown, titled “Off-duty Cohoes cop allegedly fired shots ...

Time for US to support cultured meat research
