  • 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: Watson will be a voice for clammers

    This Election Day our family is voting for the only local candidate in the House District 51 race, Republican Byron Watson. Byron will go to Augusta and represent our local marine needs and fight hard for the clammers. We aren’t going to find a better friend than Byron Watson.

  • Letter: Library project adds value to Falmouth

    I am writing in support of the Falmouth Memorial Library referendum on the ballot in the upcoming election. As a Realtor, I often get asked about the local library by families moving to the area. A strong library is a great resource for a community, adds value to the overall appeal of a town, and...

  • Letter: Withdrawal from RSU 5 is too big a gamble

    Please vote no to Freeport withdrawing from Regional School Unit 5. This is a big gamble for Freeport. The withdrawal committee found a best-case savings of $288,000, if every Durham and Pownal student stays in Freeport. If they go elsewhere, our taxes go up and our schools diminish. The ...

  • Letter: Return Gideon to the state Legislature

    I am writing to endorse Democratic state Rep. Sara Gideon in House District 48. As a Freeport resident, I have known Sara as a parent, Freeport town councilor and a state representative. Sara has done an exemplary job keeping us informed about the state’s progress by communicating through l...

  • Letter: House District 47 should elect Snow

    Rick Snow is an excellent and most competent candidate for state representative. I’ve known Rick for a number of years, and I’ve found him to be an honest, straightforward individual who’s a hard worker. Rick has proven himself as a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy in A...
