Letters to the editor

Song: ‘April’

To the editor: Over the last 35 years, my wife Peggy Lynn and I have been fortunate to make our living performing music as our living in central and northern New York, and traveling all over the country to perform at festivals and concert series. Since the COVID-19 crisis, my wife Peggy ...

Defunding WHO makes no sense

To the editor: An open letter to our congressperson: The World Health Organization sent out warnings in January! More than one! What more did Trump need? America is not an island. It needs to interact with other nations and be a good citizen of the community of nations. Cutting funding ...

Stand by your man

To the editor: Really? A letter from a Stefanik supporter and Rep. Elise Stefanik herself taking credit for recently being the “hero” who got the state to allow PPE masks for correctional officers? There was no mystery that prisons would be hotbeds with everyone at risk. Maybe the ...

Changing shop safety tips

To the editor: Response to Wednesday’s story, “Comparing precautions”: On Wednesday, the Think Tank, a new local group, began to distribute a “Best Practices Checklist for Retail” compiled from practices seen at local stores and from CDC (U.S. Centers for Disease Control and ...

Delay rate increase

365体育网站 To the editor: Regarding a letter written to this paper on April 13, I wholeheartedly agree with Mr. Weber that raising the Essex County “bed tax” from 3 to 5%, starting June 1, is unfair to the local lodging industry. It was passed by the county Board of Supervisors a few weeks ago ...

Thanks, Rotary

To the editor and the Rotary Club: This is a BIG thank-you for the wonderful check I received today in the mail from you folks! It couldn’t have come at a better time. Who would have thought an invisible virus would wreak such havoc on the entire world? So once again thank you! Your ...

Whom do we turn to in a national crisis? Government

To the editor: During these extraordinary times, I have been reaching out more than ever to my family, friends and neighbors to check on how they are doing and to also sustain connections that are now more important to me than ever. On a broader scale, I also have come to realize how ...

Stec delivers during outbreak

365体育网站 To the editor: Assemblyman Dan Stec has demonstrated leadership during the COVID-19 epidemic, which is exactly why he is the right choice to take over Sen. Betty Little’s seat in the 45th Senate District. Stec backed small business funding in the Assembly, which included $890 million ...

Apology to Fusion Market

To the editor: I owe the family and staff of Fusion Market my deepest apology. I passed on misinformation to Peter Crowley, managing editor of the Adirondack Daily Enterprise, about prisoners of the Ray Brook facilities waiting in the market for the buses. This had been shared with me, and ...

Exodus to the Adirondacks

365体育网站 To the editor: After 9/11 there was a spike in homes and land interest and sales in the Tri-Lakes area. Psychology was the driver. People from New York City wanted their “getaway place” in the Adirondacks. There is a good chance the same thing will happen when the current “virus ...

‘Shots’ fired

365体育网站 To the editor: With all the letters the Enterprise gets, I’m not sure why you’ve seen it fit to privilege in print such sketchy nonsense as was peddled by an anti-vaccine activist recently. At first I thought it was some sort of deep satire, though its poor form, reliance on ranting ...

From your local nonprofits

365体育网站 To the editor: We Saranac Lakers are facing difficult times with the coronavirus pandemic. We are all in this together, and it’s a time for cooperation. In that spirit, local nonprofit leaders met online last week to discuss ways we can help each other stay strong. As leaders of the ...

Not the time for short-term rentals

To the editor: My wife and I own a short-term vacation rental unit in Wilmington. We took our rental off the market in mid March and will not be back in the short-term vacation rental business until the global pandemic we are currently all living through is behind us. I read the ...

Stefanik backs COs as essential workers

To the editor: The correctional officers in the North Country are essential workers during the COVID-19 outbreak and, due to the nature of their work, are especially vulnerable. However, the correctional officers in the North Country prisons didn’t even have necessary precautionary ...

Cobb is more qualified for Congress

To the editor: I support Tedra Cobb, candidate for the House of Representatives, NY-21. I am a lifelong resident of Canton, St. Lawrence County, and worked in education my entire career. The qualities that my friends and relatives respect the most are the same characteristics I hope our ...

Dr. Trump gives bad advice

365体育网站 To the editor: When President Trump incorrectly announced that the Food and Drug Administration had fast-tracked approval of the drugs chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine for treatment of COVID-19, he added, “The nice part is, it’s been around for a long time, so we know that if it — ...

Correction on seasonal homeowners

365体育网站 To the editor: In my essay on the health care crisis and the need to improve Adirondack health care systems (“Don’t Let COVID-19 Divide Us,” April 3), I incorrectly stated the number of seasonal homeowners. The Adirondack Park Agency’s 2008 estimate was 45,252. Other sources ...

On recently passed bed tax, timing is everything

365体育网站 To the editor:  Petra Weber here, hoping this finds you all well. I am writing because on Monday the Essex County Board of Supervisors passed the additional 2% bed tax on all lodging, intended to go into effect June 1, if the article is correct. I was personally against the increase ...

Solidarity is needed

365体育网站 To the editor: Dear Citizen Advocates family and community: We all — the Citizen Advocates family and the world in general — are in uncharted territory, and it is important that we remain calm, show solidarity and stand by each other. This is a very difficult and uncertain time ...

Rational thinking better than emotion

To the editor: The Wuhan flu, or whatever term of art one chooses to assign to this most recent virus gifted to us by China, has most certainly upset the lives of millions. Indeed, some of our family members and neighbors may become ill from this disease. However, we as a society need ...
