  • Short Relief: Blink and there's bound to be another gubernatorial candidate

    Thirteen months to go before the 2010 election and it seems like there are as many people running for governor as will be voting. On the Republican side of the aisle, there are several attractive candidates worth considering already, and there is still time for others to jump into the r...

  • Letter: Questioning South Portland petitions

    I take issue with Gary Crosby's insistence that the 1,000 signatures on the referendum petitions to ban dogs from Willard Beach in South Portland represents 1,000 people supporting the referendum.

    It is with pleasure that I write to express my support of Frank Governali's candidacy for the Cape Elizabeth Town Council.

  • Letter: Re-elect Lennon in Cape Elizabeth

    I am writing to urge the voters of Cape Elizabeth to re-elect Sara Lennon to the Town Council. Sara has been a thoughtful, intelligent voice on the council during her first term. She is a good listener, open to hearing all sides, asks the right questions, and advocates effectively on the issues th...

    City Planner Jim Upham and the persevering group of Bath citizens who volunteered four years of meetings to compile public input and write up the community's long-term vision into a Comprehensive Plan deserve our praise for an outstanding piece of work.
