Boys, girls teams Scholar Athletes

Congratulations to the Indian Lake/Long Lake Boys and Girls Varsity Basketball Teams for qualifying for the winter Scholar Athlete Teams.

Divided, puzzled

When it comes to gun safety laws I find myself divided about what’s right and what’s possible.

Editorial Missing the Point

I was saddened to read your recent Op-Ed in support of repeal of the SAFE Act, because it seemed to me that it quite clearly missed the point on what this legislation is trying to do and at the same time you seemingly glossed over the problem of gun violence in America today.

New report on smoking alarming

5.6 million children alive today will die prematurely from smoking related diseases unless smoking rates drop, says the latest Surgeon General’s Report.

ILCS Coaches vs. Cancer Game

With money still coming in, the 2nd Annual Indian Lake/Long Lake Coaches vs. Cancer game raised at last count $1,507 for the American Cancer Society.

Generosity appreciated

Tim Green and his family would like to thank everyone for all their support for his event during his time of need.

Reader agrees with editorial: ‘Common Core’ initiative is a disaster

I want to thank your editorial board for the article entitled “Common Core — The Wrong Choice” published in the Feb. 1 edition of the Adirondack Journal and other Denton Publications newspapers

I appreciate the editorial published in Denton Publications urging the public to examine the facts associated with proposals to legalize marijuana.

Don’t feed the deer

It’s 9:30 pm, it’s February, it’s dark, and you’re driving on State Route 28N in Minerva.

Disheartened by editorial

I was deeply disheartened to read your editorial on the proposed three strikes legislation.

No to Big Oil

As a consumer I have to be skeptical of Big Oil and what will happen once the Keystone Pipe Line is finished and oil is flowing to the gulf.

Thankful for support

The North Country Hardship Fund would like to extend a sincere thank you to all who came out to support our recent fundraiser the “3rd Annual Cabin Fever Party.”

Thanks rescuers

We would like to thank the Warrensburg Volunteer Fire Department, Warrensburg Rescue, the EMT’s and the North Warren Rescue Squad who aided us after a very serious vehicle accident on Jan. 14.

Joint Statement from towns

The Towns of Long Lake and North Hudson, two of the Five Towns that have joined together as the Upper Hudson Recreation Hub and located in both Essex and Hamilton Counties, are pleased to learn of the Governor’s new initiative to grow Upstate tourism by opening nearly 50 state properties for recreational activities.

Bad weed

I offer anecdotal evidence regarding the intoxication by marijuana and therefore suggest that people wait for properly prepared weed before imbibing.
