  • Abby's Road: My hope for happiness

    She ran with a soft smile on her face, her footfalls quiet, her toes pointed. Every third step, she leaped off the ground, raising her hands above her head and extending her fingers with a dancer’s grace. Back and forth, back and forth, back and forth, her cadence seemed to be putting her i...

  • The Universal Notebook: The fine-art confidence game

    A Portland art gallery has the local art scene buzzing over the propriety of charging artists to exhibit their work. That battle was fought and largely won by the Union of Maine Visual Artists back in the 1980s, when artist-activist Carlo Pittore led the charge against museums and gallerie...

  • Letter: Denno continues Cumberland political tradition

    We are writing to support Dale Denno for Maine House District 45. Dale, a Democrat, was appointed by Gov. Paul LePage to a senior position with the Department of Health and Human Services, which speaks volumes about Dale’s ability to work with people of different political stripes. D...

  • Letter: Re-elect DeChant in Bath House District 52

    We are all fortunate to live in a beautiful state. But we also know that our state suffers from an economy that has yet to fully recover from the crash of 2008, and one that lags behind the rest of New England in job creation and economic opportunity. This election provides Mainers the cha...

  • Letter: Re-elect Daughtry in House District 49

    The citizens of Maine will be the big winners if the voters of House District 49 re-elect Democrat Mattie Daughtry to serve as their representative in Augusta. Daughtry has finished her first term in the Maine Legislature with an excellent record of activity and accomplishment. Notably, Ma...

  • Letter: Collins always votes, but not for Maine

    We see her marching through (strangely empty) halls of Congress, U.S. Sen. Susan Collins on her way to uphold her perfect record of casting votes. But is she marching for Maine, or for Republican leader Mitch McConnell? A look at her actual votes raises this question, especially compared with vot...

  • Letter: Give Falmouth the library it deserves

    We are writing to express our family’s support of the Falmouth Memorial Library expansion. Everyone we speak to loves libraries. We can’t think of any community place that is as inviting and open to everyone; that every citizen can go to for enjoyment, collaboration, meeting people, a...

  • Letter: Vote no, keep Freeport in RSU 5

    I urge you to vote no on Freeport’s withdrawal from Regional School Unit 5. Freeport residents trusted the town of Freeport to prepare objective data about the effects of withdrawal and this did not happen. This biased investigation was staffed by the very group of people who sought withdra...

  • Letter: Op-ed wrong about Falmouth library proposal

    As a trustee of Falmouth Memorial Library, I would like to point out some inaccuracies in M. Roberts Hunt’s op-ed last week (...

  • Letter: Re-elect Chipman in House District 40

    I am writing in support of state Rep. Ben Chipman's re-election to the Maine Legislature. As a member of the School Board, I follow our state officials' work in regard to education. Last spring, when students at the University of Southern Maine protested cuts to faculty and courses, Chipma...
