  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Letter: Skeptical about South Portland councilor's motive

    At the South Portland City Council meeting moments before the council voting to pass the Clear Skies Ordinance, Councilor Michael Pock proposed an amendment to exempt American crude oil from the ordinance. This was not done to support the USA, but to allow the export of one of the most hazardous ...

  • Letter: Praise for Cumberland beach access plan

    I applaud and support the town of Cumberland in its efforts to establish public land on the Atlantic Ocean. Currently, Cumberland is an oceanside community without any public/recreational access to the ocean, despite the fact it has over three miles of coastline. A park such as this will fill thi...

  • 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...

  • Letter: Vote for a compassionate bear hunt in Maine

    In November, voters can put an end to three heinous practices used to kill Maine's bears for recreation: baiting, trapping, and hounding. When passed, the ballot measure will end Maine's shameful distinction as the only state that sanctions all three of these particularly cruel practices. The mea...

  • Letter: Cumberland decision prompts repeal campaign

    I am disappointed with the Cumberland Town Council's vote for a contract zone agreement with J. Fletcher Inc. on July 14. This was after all of the public comments were against accepting this agreement, and not all were Harris Road residents. One of the outcomes of developer Fletcher's zon...

  • Letter: Harpswell Democrat launches campaign

    I am honored to have been nominated as the Democratic candidate in House District 51 (Harpswell, West Bath, part of Brunswick). I want to say thank you for the overwhelming support I have received from residents of all three towns. Our nominating caucus was held on June 14. We had 40 enthusiastic...

  • Letter: Beem plays fast, loose with facts

    I usually read Edgar Allen Beem's rants every week and most times I disagree with him. The July 10 rant got me wondering why Beem doesn't get his facts correct before he spews forth. First: House Republicans have put forward many bills to solve problems, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Re...
