  • 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: Manchester in Maine Senate District 25

    Republican Cathy Manchester will make a very strong state senator from District 25. She listens to what you have to say and makes up her mind after she has heard all the facts. She will work for us, the citizens of her district and for the citizens of Maine. She cares for us, our property, our sp...

    I write to join other Brunswick residents in supporting Kathy Wilson for the at-large seat on the Brunswick Town Council.
