  • The Right View: Film raises the question of a world without 'America'

    Dinesh D'Souza's "America" was not what I was expecting. In the promotions for the documentary, D’Souza states, “America. Imagine what the world would be like without her.” It was a fascinating concept to me, to see one person’s interpretation of what the world woul...

  • The Universal Notebook: Confessions of a (recovering) soccer dad

    Our daughter Tess played soccer from the time she was a little girl until she got to college. Prior to her taking up the sport, I had little or no interest in the game. Then we lived the devoted lives of soccer moms and dads through travel team to premier and high school varsity soccer. It...

  • Letter: Barrett for Falmouth School Board

    I am excited to endorse Josh Barrett as a candidate for the Falmouth School Board. I have known Josh and his wife Wendy for over 15 years, and can attest to his qualifications to serve on the School Board.

    Many challenges await Maine’s next Legislature, among them investing and strengthening opportunities in education for students at all levels and providing the highest quality infrastructure to attract the new investment and employers necessary to secure our economic future. Cathy Breen, a D...

  • The Universal Notebook: Hillary Rodham Clinton in 2016

    Remember back in 1998, when then-first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton alleged that there was a “vast right-wing conspiracy” behind all the attacks on her husband? Whitewater, Travelgate, Filegate, Paula Jones, Gennifer Flowers, Monica Lewinsky – heck the dirt bags of the rig...

  • Letter: Vote Woods if you care about jobs, dollars

    I support Steve Woods in the Senate District 25 Democratic primary because he’s intelligent and independent-minded, with a respect for individual rights and a nonpartisan way of doing business. I like that Steve has entrepreneurial experience and has run a successful business, supports pay ...
