  • Editor's Notebook: Twenty-two words, and 553 writers, to appreciate from 2014

    I don't usually have time to trade emails or chat with every reader who writes a letter to the editor. I'll write or call to confirm letters, but beyond that, unless a letter needs clarification, or if the writer asks a question about our policies for publishing letters, I don't usually fo...

  • The Right View: This Christmas, say a little prayer for us

    For me, Christmas is a time of reflection. A time to take stock of the year past, and things I’d like to see changed going forward. Nothing as schlocky as your typical New Year’s resolution, but rather, a refocusing on my family, and pondering what is happening to us as a nation. ...

  • Letter: Wentworth is a vote for Scarborough's future

    Scarborough's Wentworth Intermediate School is barely functional, much too small and – most importantly – not safe for students or for staff. To further delay its replacement would be a disservice. Asbestos, radon and mold are prevalent. Less than half of the building has spr...

  • Letter: Yes on 2 to protect jobs, heritage

    I urge the citizens of Maine to vote yes on Question 2. This referendum question allows Mainers to support economic development without having to approve additional borrowing through the issuance of bonds. Job opportunities will be created for the men and women in York and in Washington co...

    Please vote to re-elect Joe Migliaccio to the Freeport District 3 Town Council seat. Migliaccio brings a unique perspective to the council by balancing commercial economic interests with the preservation and protection of residential neighborhoods. He grew up in Freeport, is now raising hi...

  • Letter: Don't take Maine's beauty for granted

    There’s an ocean in our back yard. At any time during the day, we can see boats sailing past our windows as nonchalantly as other people observe cars passing by on the street. We’ve lived here three years now and we’re still enthralled by what we see every day. Large ships, smal...

  • Letter: Migliaccio deserves re-election in Freeport

    As a volunteer member of one of Freeport's advisory boards, I have had many opportunities to work with Town Councilor Joe Migliaccio. Joe is a hard working family man and has Freeport's best interest at heart. He puts in the time to research any matter that is presented to the council. He looks f...

  • Letter: Big on 'Joe Mig' in South Freeport

    It seems like a constant war in Freeport between those who always want more from local government and those who want to maintain a balance between services and property tax affordability. Many residents of South Freeport appreciate Joe Migliaccio's ongoing effort to counter costly and indu...

  • Letter: Question 2 is all about jobs

    We have two companies in Ocean Properties and Scarborough Downs that are ready to invest $120 million into a state-of-the-art entertainment complex in Biddeford. These companies already employ more than 1,000 Mainers, and they would employ hundreds more if we approve the Biddeford Downs racino by...
