  • Letter: Beem on target about Arizona

    Thank you for publishing such a refreshing piece about Arizona's SB1070. Edgar Allen Beem provided a factual, intelligent, respectable explanation of the absurdity of SB1070.

  • The Universal Notebook: Train of thoughts

    The first night we slept in our new home in Yarmouth 28 years ago, I woke in the middle of the night to a roar and a flash of light coming through the trees outside our bedroom window.

  • Letter: Watson works for Brunswick

    I want to thank Byron Watson for representing my family on the Brunswick School Board. Mr. Watson has been the most dedicated member of that board and truly cares for the future of the town of Brunswick. What makes Byron's dedication and service to District 1 all the more impressive is th...

  • Letter: Woodbury for state Senate

    Concerns about health care are part of what motivates me to support Dick Woodbury in Senate District 11. As a physician who has practiced medicine for 35 years, I have witnessed the wonderful advances and benefits it has brought. Yet I also recognize its two most troubling aspects: the ever-in...

  • Letter: Richard for Falmouth rep

    I had the privilege of attending Mark Richard’s Campaign Rally at his home in Falmouth, on Sept. 12. Several individuals were asked to speak on Mark’s behalf, several of whom I know and respect. I know them for being sincere and honest individuals who care deeply about what happens...

  • Letter: Former state rep backs Davis

    As a resident of Maine Senate District 11, I am very pleased that Sen. Jerry Davis has again decided to offer his service to the citizens of the district. In his first term of office, Jerry demonstrated both fiscal prudence and political courage by resisting pressure and voted against a bloated ...
