  • Letter: Falmouth intersection needs a traffic light

    I live on Woodville Road near the Falmouth schools. For the past 30 years I’ve had to leave for work at the same time as traffic gets busy on this road. I try to leave early every day so I won’t have to fight through the gridlock in front of my driveway. I believe some of this could b...

  • Letter: Bellows embodies traditional Maine ideals

    Hannibal Hamlin of Maine had the courage to oppose slavery. Margaret Chase Smith of Maine had the courage to speak out against McCarthyism. Until recently, U.S. Sen. Susan Collins was another voice for reason, moderation and even (gasp!), liberalism. No more. The leaders of the deeply conf...

    I write to urge South Portland voters not to fall for the Marijuana Policy Project's national line that marijuana is "less harmful than alcohol."

  • Letter: Send Costa to Portland council from District 4

    For the first time in 30 years, District 4 residents in Portland will choose a new city councilor.

That is why I am proud to support Just...
