Letters to the editor

Why socialism stinks

To the editor: Here are the top 10 reasons why socialism stinks: 1. Leads to wealth-stealing high taxes. 2. Inefficient government takes over production by nationalization of privately owned companies. 3. It reduces choice — business and personal. 4. Gun control leading to ...

Have to cap transient rental permits

To the editor: The recent letter and commentary on short-term rentals were amusing and of interest. (I hope that it was intended.) But I don’t think it really helps solve the problem. The one critical issue that no one seems to consider is that you desperately need to cap the number ...

Miracle on Ice in Vegas

To the editor, and Mike Eruzione: The captain didn’t know taking part in the rally, putting on the “Keep America Great” hat, being cheered by Trump’s base who were all there to show their support of his reelection would be considered “a disgrace” and would ignite controversy? ...

Quit whining about Trump

2020欧洲杯体育投注官网 To the editor: Lou (Reuter)’s whining about about President Trump because the ’80 Olympic hockey team appeared on stage with our “divisive” president is small grapes for a supposed sports journalist. Only liberals find him divisive. Trump has honored his running platform and will ...

From heroes to toads

2020欧洲杯体育投注官网 To the editor: Unfortunately what happened in Vegas didn’t stay in Vegas. One thoughtless decision can make heroes into toads, as the onstage performance of the 1980 Olympic hockey team disappointingly points out. Writer Lou Reuter said it eloquently and painfully in his opinion piece ...

Coronavirus to go away in spring?

2020欧洲杯体育投注官网 To the editor: When the president is universally known to espouse falsehoods large and small, his assurances that springtime will offer respite from the likely coronavirus outbreak predicted by Centers for Disease Control experts caused stock markets to tank. The markets know Trump, in a ...

Olympic 40th thanks

To the editor: I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who participated in our 40th Anniversary Celebration of the 1980 Winter Olympics. It does truly take a village to pull off an event like this, and it takes a village to embrace the endeavor and savor the experience. Thank you ...

Many thanks for Olympic 40th celebration

2020欧洲杯体育投注官网 To the editor: We would like to acknowledge the hard work and success of the 40th anniversary of the Lake Placid Olympics committee and all of the businesses, organizations and individuals that made this possible. Not only did this event highlight the 40th anniversary of the 1980 Olympic ...

We’re here, too!

To the editor: Your excellent editorials on Feb. 22 made the point that the state government loves to pour largesse on Lake Placid, while neglecting areas that are far more in need of a little attention, including us here in Tupper Lake. If any supporting evidence of Albany’s myopia ...

Short-term rental rules have problems

To the editor: We are Tom and Emily Rath, our family lives full time at 15 Maple St., Lake Placid. We have a lovely little cottage on our property that we rent to visiting guests. We’ve had hundreds of five-star reviews from those same travelers and have never had a complaint from our ...

Enterprise helps keep Senior Outlook going

To the editor: This is written in response to a recent editorial published in the Adirondack Daily Enterprise titled “Dark clouds hang over Senior Outlook.” It is true that we work hard at providing information, companionship and activities for our seniors. We are truly blessed that ...

Stefanik serves her true constituents well

2020欧洲杯体育投注官网 To the editor: You have to give Elise Stefanik credit for being loyal to her constituents. Her TRUE constituents, that is. The ones who chose her, who imported her into our district and who pay for her dishonest campaign ads: right-wing billionaires, vulture capitalists, Big Pharma and Big ...

Re: ‘For Cobb, health care is vital but cure is uncertain’

To the editor: Tedra Cobb is right on target with her idea for health insurance. Like Ms. Cobb, my position regarding health insurance has evolved in the past few years. I was formerly a supporter of single-payer health insurance, the “Medicare for All” promoted by Bernie Sanders. ...

On short-term rentals

To the editor: With regard to the forthcoming short-term rental restrictions, a few thoughts. Half of the houses in Lake Placid are second homes. Probably it can be safely assumed that many of these are the most expensive homes in the area, which certainly represents a lot of tax revenue ...

Sidewalk issue in Tupper Lake

To the editor: Following is Barbara Close’s address to the Tupper Lake town board on Feb. 13: It has been over two years since we first asked you about repairing the sidewalk across from Sunmount. At that time you told us there was no money in the budget. That was 2017. In 2018 you ...

Reward offered for murdered beagle

2020欧洲杯体育投注官网 To the editor: I am grief stricken that my beloved 12-year-old beagle Demon, whom I last saw alive on Jan. 7 in the Santanoni Preserve, is presumably dead. The Newcomb town supervisor, Robin DeLoria, assured me in mid January that “everyone in town” knew about my lost beagle. When ...

‘Miracle’ team

2020欧洲杯体育投注官网 To the editor: In 1980 I watched the USA hockey team beat the Russians in the “Miracle on Ice” game on our living room TV in Central New York. I can remember the pure jubilation and pride that win invoked. Today I am living in Lake Placid and on the 40th anniversary of that miracle ...

Trump didn’t know who the Miracle on Ice team was

2020欧洲杯体育投注官网 To the editor: I want to thank your paper for the informative article on Feb. 22 regarding Mr. Trump and his interactions with the 1980 Miracle on Ice team. Far from resembling anything but a paid appearance by this team (I know it’s the 40th anniversary, but still), your article painted ...

An open letter to Rep. Elise Stefanik

To the editor: I write this with great sadness, and deep fear for our nation. I have been a Republican my entire adult life, and have never before felt so embarrassed and angry at my party’s leadership. I spent three decades of my career as a judge, standing for the rule of law as a ...

Enough

To the editor: Last spring, Elise Stefanik, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, stated about Russian election interference: “It was stunning to read how systemic it was in the Mueller report. This wasn’t just Facebook ads, this wasn’t just disinformation campaigns; this was ...
