  • Editorial: North Yarmouth sends the wrong message by pulling the plug

    If you're of a certain age, you probably remember the opening narration of the early 1960s sci-fi TV show, "The Outer Limits": "There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will brin...

  • The Universal Notebook: Art in my life

    For the most part, my life in art has remained pretty much out of these columns, except perhaps when I was inveighing against our benighted governor a few years ago for his political attack on the Maine Labor History Mural for being too pro-labor. But art has been a big part of my personal and pr...

  • Letter: Arno will bring quality to Freeport council

    Freeport’s election process is supposed to be a non-partisan exercise in selecting the candidate who best represents our own thoughts and ones who will participate in municipal government with clarity, integrity and maturity. Kate Arno, the senior manager/senior policy associate at ...

  • Letter: Arno for Freeport Town Council

    I am pleased to support Katherine “Kate” Arno for the District 2 seat on the Freeport Town Council. We are fortunate to have such a talented candidate at a time when key decisions affecting the town’s future will have to be made. Kate has lived in Freeport for over 20 years, and...

  • Letter: Freeport candidates must denounce vandalism

    I have been involved in the Freeport political scene since 1960 and have campaigned and been elected to office several times. I am appalled at the sign rage evidenced this year by supporters of some candidates in the Town Council races. The most egregious is the destruction of signs in the Distr...

  • Letter: Question 2 ensures Maine's future

    There's a scene in "Caddyshack" where Chevy Chase instructs a young golfer to “see your future, be your future.” On Nov. 8 I hope we follow that advice and vote yes on Question 2. Approving Question 2 will allow two well-established companies with strong Maine connections &ndas...

  • Letter: Yes on 2 to invest in Maine's future

    Question 2 on the Nov. 8 ballot is all about jobs. If the referendum is approved, it will bring about 800 construction jobs to Biddeford to build a new race track, slots facility, destination hotel and restaurants. The entertainment complex will employ roughly 500 people after it’s d...

  • Letter: Egan is the candidate Freeport needs

    We are writing to urge our friends and neighbors to vote for Kristina Egan to be our new town councilor representing Freeport District 3, which includes South Freeport. We met Kristina for the first time at the post office. She impressed us as thoughtful, smart and perhaps, most importantl...

  • The Universal Notebook: Back to the movies

    Lately, Carolyn and I have taken to going to the movies at the Nickelodeon in Portland on Tuesday nights when admission is only $5. We go with our good friends and fellow empty-nesters Don and Colleen. Even watching the latest hit films, there’s something very old-fashioned about actually g...
