Mountains & Valleys

February 6, 2012
Editorial by the Adirondack Daily Enterprise: Publisher Catherine Moore, Managing Editor Peter Crowley

VALLEY - The death of Eli Drury in a Florida road collision at only 31 years of age sent a shockwave through Saranac Lake last week. Amid their grief, his father and brother's interviews with the Enterprise gave the community a full, real and emotional sense of this remarkable man's life.

-

MOUNTAIN - The Bloomingdale Volunteer Fire Department has dutifully served its community and the surrounding area for 100 years - exactly 100 years as of Thursday night, when a well attended celebration was held at the firehouse. The Enterprise, unfortunately, wasn't able to cover the event in person, but we are putting together a historical article on the fire department's century of service. If anyone has information or comments to contribute to that article, please contact Senior Staff Writer Chris Knight at cknight@adirondackdailyenterprise.com or 518-891-2600 ext. 24. Meanwhile, we offer the BVFD our heartiest congratulations and, more importantly, our thanks for protecting the community for a century.

MOUNTAIN - The Empire State Winter Games bring hundreds of young athletes to our area from around New York and give them the opportunity to compete in sports they've been training in all season. These games celebrate the joys of winter activity and further reinforce Lake Placid's reputation as the winter sports capital of the nation. We continue to be impressed and grateful to the local government agencies and private entities that kept these games going here when the state dropped them.

-

MOUNTAIN - Ice Palace workers and all other Saranac Lake Winter Carnival volunteers really do a fantastic job. Despite being run by so many people (hundreds?), Winter Carnival is very well organized. And it's a blast, too - our favorite time of year. If you're visiting the area, we welcome you warmly. Tell the world.

-

MOUNTAIN - We're excited to announce that the Enterprise will roll out some Winter Carnival-related slide show and video productions this week. If you liked our "Year of the Floods" slide show that came out at the begining of January, you'll love these.

-

MOUNTAIN - Don't forget, there's another Winter Carnival going on, too - at Lake Placid High School. It's not as publicly accessible as Saranac Lake's, but still, it's an age-old tradition reminding us to get out and enjoy the cold season rather than sit inside and get cabin fever. And that's a wonderful, important message.

-

VALLEY - Although this weekend was beautiful, weather-wise, as winters go, this one is fairly pitiful - almost on par with our 1932 and 1980 Olympic years. Big Tupper is closed due to a lack of snow, a terrible blow to those who bought season passes ...

-

MOUNTAIN - ... but thankfully, Titus Mountain Ski Area, which now shares manager Zach White with Big Tupper, is offering to help, letting Big Tupper season pass holders ski at Titus, south of Malone, for $10 a day for the rest of this season. Thanks, Titus. The good deed won't be forgotten.
