    I am concerned by the Martin’s Point proposal for the development of the Hamlin School property on Route 77, at the intersection with Sawyer Street, in South Portland. My daughter attends preschool at Casco Bay Montessori School on the corner of Parrot Street and Route 77. We often walk to ...

  • Capitol Notebook: No more help for immigrants? No more 'phantom ballots'?

    Lewiston Mayor Robert McDonald surprised some observers at a legislative hearing last week with a comment he made about Somali residents in his city. The combative mayor has in the past been critical of the influx of Somali refugees who have settled in Lewiston. But at the hearing, ...

  • Letter: Rousselle column surprises, enlightens

    The Forecaster Forum by the Scarborough native about her experiences while working at her summer job at Walmart was surprising. The usual weekly columns attack Gov. LePage and his administration. The following week’s edition ran more like your normal editing favoring the Democratic slant on... 1

  • Letter: Rousselle's view from the right is wrong

  • Short Relief: What about the other side of the story?

    Last month, Portland's major daily newspaper, The Portland Press Herald, reviewed its top stories of the year. Many of them were negative stories about Gov. Paul LePage (his remarks about the NAACP, his removal of the mural from the walls of the state Department of Labor, etc.). In the sa... 3
