    It’s always been inevitable that there’s a trail of sawdust from Greg’s shop into our house. These days, though, instead of sawdust, everywhere you look there are palm cards, spreadsheets, calendars, maps and mailers: we’re in campaign mode. Greg and I are months away from...

  • Letter: Leaving RSU 5 will put focus back on education

    As a mother, I am glad that there is an agreement in place that not only allows all children attending Freeport High School presently to graduate together, but for all kids to continue at FHS into the future. All available spots at FHS up to 500 students will be available to Pownal and Durham for...

In addition, she has earned the respect of legislators on both sides of the aisle for her understanding and leadershi...
