Speakout: Feb. 26, 2014

Rink

I think ORDA and the governor ought to take a look at the locker room of the 1932 Olympic skating rink when the governor visits Lake Placid. It looks and smells awful.

War

Another country dangling on the brink of a civil war; leave it up to the American government to stick their disheveled noses in the middle of it ... again.

Cauldron

Lake Placid lit the 1980s Olympic cauldron on Feb. 7, 2014, and kept it lit until the close of the Winter Olympics. It burns 62 gallons of propane an hour, which means that on Feb. 23, it would have burned 23,808 gallons. How many homes could have been heated with this?

Stolen

To the person who stole the items my boyfriend won at the CSEA party at Pecks in Altona: Apparently you needed the bottle of wine more than we did. Just remember what goes around comes around.

Frozen

The Great Lakes have completely frozen over for the first time in over a decade. Yet the Poles continue to melt?
