  • No Sugar Added: I admit it; I love boys

    Now, if you are privy to my dating history, you may be saying, “Duh.” But I’m not talking men here. I’m talking men in the making. Boys. I love listening to them talk. I love hearing them belly laughing down the hall and plotting and planning and scheming. This su... 1

  • Forecaster Forum: An elected mayor is 'just right' for Portland

    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 ...

  • Letter: Re-elect Davis in Falmouth

    I am writing to lend my support to Jerry Davis' campaign for state Senate. Jerry has done a great job for us in the past and I especially appreciate his periodic mailings that recap what is happening in the Legislature. He is very approachable and willing to listen to his constituents. O...

  • Letter: Falmouth wins with Davis

    History was a favorite subject during schools years – the ultimate non-fiction story. Politics have been a keen interest since high school. The two are inexplicably tied. History and politics weave the past, present and future. Who better to serve our interests in Augusta than a can...
