  • Letter: Richard deserves support

    Mark Richard has such a positive outlook on life that I know it’s hard for him to see or speak the negative. I can only imagine the challenge Mark feels as he answers the call of our state. It’s a negative fact that our state finds itself in a bit of a mess and I cannot imagine a mor...

  • The Universal Notebook: The meat of the matter

    Are you a vegetarian? Neither am I, but we probably should be, both for the good of our bodies and of our souls. In a recent newspaper column entitled “How Will the Future Judge Us?,” Princeton University philosophy professor Kwame Anthony Appiah prophesizes that posterity will...

  • Superintendent's Notebook: Community donates generously for student eyeglasses

    OK, confession time. I felt scared as I prepared to address the Portland Regional Chamber for the first time at last month’s "Eggs & Issues” program. This wasn’t stage fright. I’ve done plenty of public speaking. But I’d never used my position as a scho...
