  • Letter: Beem misdiagnoses free-market ills

    It seems, from his recent column, that Edgar Allen Beem is gleefully pronouncing the death of capitalism by it's own hands. I suggest an alternative explanation: The free market in this great nation did not fall on it's own sword. Rather, it has been slowly, but steadily, strangled at the...

  • Letter: Send Strang Burgess back to Augusta

    I wish to urge voters of House District 108 (Cumberland, North Yarmouth, Chebeague Island and Long Island) to cast their votes on Nov. 2 for Meredith Strang Burgess. For decades the voters of this district have sent smart, qualified, hard-working people to represent them in Augusta. Meredith me...

  • Letter: Return Bliss to the Senate

    Sen. Larry Bliss states that his legislative aims, if re-elected, will be to balance the best interests of the individuals and families he represents with promotion of business and jobs and protection of the environment. What a difficult task to coordinate all this. Often, enhancement of o...

    I am writing in support of Kerry Corthell and Iver Carlsen for election to the Scarborough Town Council. I have had the opportunity to meet these two exceptional candidates and find them to be great listeners and thinkers who I believe will bring new perspectives to town government. Kerry and I...

  • Letter: Richard, Davis for Falmouth

    Liberal and conservative politicians have spent the last 12-plus months blaming each other for the economic woes our nation is currently facing. Overlapping power/majority rule gives each group the ability make the same general argument on a national level. This is not true in the state of Main...

  • Letter: SPHS students deserve better conditions

    Teenagers learn differently today and they need to be taught differently. I know this because I teach them every day. Quality education today focuses on teaching students how to be critical consumers of information and that often requires different types and sizes of classroom space. The South ...

  • Letter: Amorello, Beem on target

    Congratulations on the marvelous columns Sandy Amorello and Edgar Allen Beem. Amorello"s "The case of the shrinking Saltines" manifests a fine wit and a superior power of observation, a power so wanting in kept mass media journalism, which misses such obvious happenings as (a) our revenge ...

  • Letter: Cornell du Houx is true green

    I was surprised when Green Party candidate Fred Horch decided to run in House District 66 against Rep. Alex Cornell du Houx this year. After all, in just two years, Alex has not only led a variety of initiatives in the Legislature on weatherization and clean energy business, but has also shown i... 1
