The farmers market: Your source for local, pastured meat

2020欧洲杯体育投注官网You may have heard that reducing your consumption of meat is better both for your health and for our planet. This is true. But most Americans still eat meat. So which meat should you buy? It is best to buy local, sustainably raised meat products —like those sold at our winter farmers ...

Good music can make a film

Mixing media is an impressive feat, and finding the right song to match a film can be tough work. When it’s done right, you can really capture audiences. Here are a few of my favorite uses of popular songs in films. --- “All I Want for Christmas is You” --- I can’t help but ...

Contrary to popular belief, time does not fly by

Whether you are a new parent or an old parent, there is always a lot of advice floating around. So, I thought I'd chime in on some unwarranted and unasked instruction. Now that my children are older, I can become nostalgic for that child I used to cuddle. I want to recapture those times when we ...

‘The Black Arrow’

Chalet La Solitude seemed like a good name to give the next new home for Mr. and Mrs. Robert Louis Stevenson as they migrated through Europe in search of places conducive to the health of Mr. Stevenson, a certified invalid, even more so since he had returned from his year-long American ...

Meet your local weeds and wildflowers

2020欧洲杯体育投注官网 I can’t remember a book making me so eager for spring. Others may have given me the feel of that swift, sweet season, but none has given me so much to do when it arrives. Mind you, I love winter, but now I want things to sprout so I can go out in my yard — and into fields, bogs and ...

In defense of Rep. Elise Stefanik

2020欧洲杯体育投注官网 I can no longer sit idly by at the harsh criticisms of Congresswoman Elise Stefanik, such as the recent article by Ken Tingley of the Post-Star. Ken attacked her fundraising, as if that is not commonplace with political candidates. Is he kidding? I realize Democrats are very much the majority ...

Winter peaks for weekend warriors

2020欧洲杯体育投注官网Originally, my friend Darren came to the Adirondacks thinking we were going to hike Mount Marcy. He drove up from Manhattan with the gear he expected to carry him through, knowing full well I could acquire the rest. Here was the trouble: He’d never been on a winter hike before. Not only ...

Trump holds New Yorkers hostage

Many of us here in the North Country cross the Canadian border almost daily to do business or to visit relatives in Quebec, and we have joined our country’s Trusted Traveler Program so that we may cross back and forth into Canada without undue and unpredictable delay. We have gone to some ...

Chili: a concise and biased history

2020欧洲杯体育投注官网 I have followed Yvona Fast for decades, always insightful and an obviously talented chef, but her Feb. 20 Weekender article on chili seemed to miss the mark. She included beans, which requires comment and, perhaps, aprobation. Chile con carne is a stew of chile peppers (Capsicum annuum) and ...

Unacceptable!

2020欧洲杯体育投注官网On Friday, Feb. 7 there was a major snowstorm in much of upstate New York, with Franklin County getting around 15 to 20 inches. Most of that Friday saw intense snowfall, with accumulating snow on our roads despite constant plowing by the various highway departments. Although with all county ...

Adirondack winter vacations

2020欧洲杯体育投注官网 I could not believe my eyes as I stumbled across — er, I mean, went to my systematically, automatically prearranged, numbered files of old Enterprise copies and found this … An eight-page copy of the Enterprise, dated Jan. 2, 1954, a mere 66 years ago — a special edition with a ...

Big problem with bail reform

New York state’s new “bail reform law” is flawed in many respects; regardless, it went into effect Jan. 1. You may be asking yourself, what does this law entail, and how will it affect the criminal justice system? After serving 29 years in law enforcement, I felt compelled to share with ...

Playing safely with a dog

2020欧洲杯体育投注官网With children and dogs out and about as spring approaches, something is bound to happen when the two groups encounter each other, particularly if a child provokes a dog resulting in a dog provoking a child. Believe it or not, there are over 4.5 million dog bites that occur each year. If you ...

Now you see it …

If you ever decide to become a magician, you must learn The First Law of Magic, which is this: There’s no such thing as magic. Huh? What? No such thing as magic? Am I toying with you? Not at all. There’s a very good reason magicians never reveal a secret: namely, to spare ...

On psychology and education

2020欧洲杯体育投注官网 In 2009, seven years before the elections of 2016, Niall Bradley wrote about psychopaths in “From Truth to Power: Souless Psychopaths Rule Our World”: “While psychopaths promote vigorously certain ideologies, they are blatant liars and feel no attachment to the words they utter. ...

Please tell us: How has music impacted you?

I’ll admit it. I’m a real sucker for Instagram. As soon as I start scrolling through artsy photos and funny videos, it’s hard to stop. First, I’m checking out supermodel Ashley Graham and her new baby, next I’m watching two guys build a primitive swimming pool out of mud and palm ...

Getting back to your roots

2020欧洲杯体育投注官网There are many delicious root veggies at our winter farmers’ market. In addition to the ubiquitous potatoes, onions, carrots and sweet potatoes, there are long white parsnips, rough-skinned celeriac (celery root), smooth and shiny kohlrabi, turnips, leeks, several types of beets and four ...

Please wash your hands!

In a perfect world there would be no sickness, right? We would all be washing our hands with soap and water. We’d cough and sneeze into our elbow. Each doorstep would host a chemical shower so we could hose off after being coughed in the face by a total stranger. That is what utopia looks ...

France again

“We now leave Davos for good, I trust, Dr. Reudi giving me leave to live in France.” — RLS to his mother, April 1882 Robert Louis Stevenson had no problem about putting Davos, Switzerland, in his rear view forever, even though he may have saved his life by going there. The same ...

Tough lesson for ‘America’s Team’

2020欧洲杯体育投注官网 Forty years ago right here in Lake Placid, a group of United States Olympians achieved a feat that probably the entire world at the time would have deemed impossible. That, of course, was the “Miracle On Ice” hockey victory at the 1980 Winter Olympics. Some say the Americans’ 4-3 win ...
