Correctional officers’ union at FCI Ray Brook sounds the alarm

2020欧洲杯夺冠热门 Judging from the response of the leadership of the Federal Bureau of Prisons, we are grossly underprepared to properly react and reduce the affects of the COVID-19 pandemic at the Federal Correctional Institute at Ray Brook. The measures put in place are nothing more than an attempt to appear ...

Wear a mask

2020欧洲杯夺冠热门 In New York state, the authorities have been telling us that we don’t need to wear masks. That just doesn’t make logical sense. Although masks do not provide absolute prevention against the spread of COVID-19, they would reduce the spread. Reducing the spread is essential. If we all wear ...

The best business book I ever read

Back in 1999 I graduated with a business degree from Empire State College, one of the State University colleges in New York. Even though I'd been in business for many years, I somehow felt I should do this. Getting the degree turned out to be a good thing. And it started me doing something I'm ...

Women’s choice doesn’t seem to be pregnancy center’s priority

On March 17, The Adirondack Pregnancy Center introduced itself through a statement to the Adirondack Daily Enterprise. I was relieved to see this because, like many other community members, I have been concerned with the lack of transparency that has been surrounding this project thus far. ...

The Adirondack Pregnancy Center — an introduction

2020欧洲杯夺冠热门The Adirondack Pregnancy Center Board of Directors would like to thank the village of Saranac Lake for welcoming the APC to the community.

Reply re: new pregnancy center

2020欧洲杯夺冠热门 The article written by Carolyn (Koestner) was filled with slander, hate and discrimination against women in need. Have you ever been faced with a unplanned crisis pregnancy? Did you have nowhere to turn and no one to talk to? Were you scared, alone and hopeless, not knowing what to do? I ...

A green future

2020欧洲杯夺冠热门 I have driven through the countryside in many regions over the years, and have always been intrigued by the wonderful barns that farmers used to build. How was it, I would ask myself, that a single family unit had the resources and motivation to build such impressive buildings? Only later did ...

Political indigestion

There’s an old gag that goes something like this: “What’s worse than biting into an apple and finding a worm?” “I don’t know. What?” “Finding half a worm!” For millions of Americans, the last three years of Donald Trump’s presidency felt like they had taken a ...

Adirondacks need internet upgrade

As anyone who spends even just a few hours here knows all too well, getting reliable and comprehensive cellular coverage and internet service inside the Blue Line is a challenge. The Adirondack Park, well known as America’s largest state park, encompasses 6 million acres that include ...

Who will help animal rehab center?

2020欧洲杯夺冠热门 I’m writing today as a longtime lover of wildlife, a photographer of the same and a regular visitor to the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge. I have eagerly watched the facility grow and change to the unique facility it is today. Wendy and Steve Hall deserve our praise and admiration for their ...

Morally bankrupt bluster and bravado 

2020欧洲杯夺冠热门 Over the years, President Trump has repeatedly stated that Americans should “stand proudly” during the national anthem and has severely chastised individuals he considers disrespectful to the flag and American military personnel.  Trump has been especially critical of National Football ...

Protect reproductive rights; stop Adirondack Pregnancy Center

“You have a big mouth,” Saranac Lake Development Board member Elias Pelletieri spat at me during last week’s Development Board meeting. The comment came at the end of my public comment opposing the proposal for the Adirondack Pregnancy Center, which is seeking establishment at 20 Academy ...

Please fix our roads, governor

An open letter to Andrew Cuomo from an Adirondack Park resident: For as long as the Adirondack Park has existed, its existence has been based on tourism. The park itself was established because tourists wanted to see the region protected from the ravages of industry. From the Great Camps ...

You don’t own the ’80 hockey team

In a recent Enterprise opinion article, Senior Staff Writer Lou Reuter found it troubling that Olympic “Dream Team” hockey players appeared prominently at a Donald Trump political rally. His article’s first half wins our interest and appreciation as Lou enthusiastically recounts ...

Don’t change land use code

2020欧洲杯夺冠热门Re: Feb. 25 public hearing We the people — the voters and residents, owners, renters and commercial businesses — need to become more vocal and involved. We need to press both the town of North Elba and the village of Lake Placid boards to stop with this nonsense of changing our land use ...

In defense of Rep. Elise Stefanik

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 ...

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欧洲杯夺冠热门 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 ...

Big problem with bail reform

2020欧洲杯夺冠热门 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 ...
