  • Letter: Chace for state representative in District 46

    This November, I hope you'll consider voting for Republican Paul Chace in House District 46. Paul will give a new voice to represent our community. We need someone with Paul's business experience, who will help advance common-sense, business friendly policies. We need a legislator who understands...

  • Letter: Library is a valuable Falmouth resource

    I am writing in support of the Falmouth Memorial Library expansion project. Falmouth has among the best schools in the state, wonderful athletic fields, modern hockey rinks, parks and open space. But while these facilities are used by specific pockets of our population, our library appeals to and...

  • Letter: Re-elect Graham in House District 46

    Of great importance to me is the spirit of cooperation between people of all political stripes as we work together to make our town a great place to live. Democratic state Rep. Anne Graham, running for re-election in North Yarmouth's House District 46, has been part of that community spiri...

  • Letter: Breen a worthy successor to Woodbury

    It’s not often that a candidate of Democrat Cathy Breen’s integrity and qualifications comes along; the toxic environment in Augusta and Washington has kept far too many good people on the political sidelines. I know: I covered the Maine Legislature many years ago for MPBN, the Bangor...

    I am writing to express my support for Democrat Teresa Pierce in Maine House District 44. Teresa demonstrated a practical, collaborative, empathic approach to key problems on the Falmouth Town Council. She understands that our budgets must be realistic while infrastructure is maintained an...

  • Letter: Denno has right background for Legislature

    As a Cumberland resident, I am grateful we have a candidate like Democrat Dale Denno prepared to represent our community in House District 45. Dale has the skills and experience to make our government more cost-effective and responsive to all Maine citizens. With an extensive business background,...

  • Letter: Denno for Cumberland state representative

    Democrat Dale Denno, a long time Cumberland resident, is getting my vote for state representative in House District 45. Dale has worked in the public and private sector, and contributed countless hours to public service. In his various roles, he has had the opportunity to successfully work with b...

  • The Universal Notebook: 'Now we are orphans'

    When my father died back in February an odd thing occurred to me as I sat at his deathbed with my two younger brothers. “Now we are orphans,” I said to them, our mother having passed away seven months earlier. We tend to think of orphans as young children whose parents h...

  • The Right View: NFL commissioner fails the character test

    The two-game suspension of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice – after he was seen on video dragging his unconscious fiancee, and now wife, Janay Palmer, out of an elevator in a hotel casino and dropping her on the floor, face first, in February – was ludicrous. It wasn’...
