  • Letter: Gideon deserves to be re-elected to House

    My husband and I set out to start a new business last fall, but it required legislation to make a go of it. Democratic Rep. Sara Gideon, our friend, worked tirelessly to write and pass the bill to open up a new market. I am inspired by her willingness to tackle big issues that prevent Mainers fro...

  • Letter: Re-elect Freeport's Gideon in House District 48

    Please join me in voting for Democrat Sara Gideon in her re-election to House District 48 (Freeport and Pownal). In her 2012 Maine House election, I drove Sara from door to door to meet and talk to what must have been thousands of residents. I was astounded at her commitment, her knowledge and he...

  • Letter: Beem bares society's problems

    Not only are Edgar Allen Beem's insights the most culturally literate published in Maine, but they demonstrate a capacity for articulating the most broad understanding of our desperate socio-economic situation at the hands of the international corporate commissariat. It is ironic that those who c... 2

  • The Universal Notebook: Reign of error in LePage's state of me

    Of all the things there are to be upset about when it comes to Gov. Paul LePage’s notorious order removing the Maine labor history mural from the Department of Labor, the thing that bothers me most is the state’s sick argument that taking down the mural is an act of constitutionally p... 48

  • Letter: South Portland leaves dog owners holding the bag

    The South Portland Dog Owners Group has been informed that, due to budget constraints, the city is likely to discontinue supplying dog waste bags at our parks and beaches in the next few weeks. Our group spoke out against this budget cut when it was first proposed last fall and we continue to opp...

  • Letter: Vote for Dill in Senate District 7

    Please join me in voting for Rep. Cynthia Dill for the state Senate District 7 seat recently vacated by Sen. Larry Bliss. Cynthia is in her third term in the House of Representatives and has a keen understanding of the legislative process. She is willing and eager to tackle issues that face our...

  • No Sugar Added: It's still a Barbie world

    A couple of weeks ago, my lovely mother, Louise, arrived for a visit. She brought with her a newspaper, with the front page of Section D boasting a Technicolor photograph of a middle-aged woman with a jaw-length hairdo, wire-frame glasses, and a disturbingly startled look upon her face. Ap...

  • Letter: Beem sees pension crisis through smoke, mirrors

    As typical of every spendthrift liberal, Edgar Allen Beem wants to slay Chicken Little. He disconnects himself with fiscal sanity and tries to reinvent Economics 101. In this spirit he refuses to recognize the fiscal insanity of his liberal icons. Does he remember Sen. Kennedy's bleating that S... 5

  • Letter: LePage fails the humility litmus test

    Gov. LePage's contempt for much of the population that differs from his point of view, is at once alarming and quite disturbing. A litmus test for any public servant that wants to lead and serve the common good should be love and tolerance for others. What we have here in Maine, is a governor ...

  • Letter: Vote for Maietta in Senate District 7

    We have a special election coming up May 10 and we will have two choices, a Democrat or a Republican. The last Democrat said he is moving away because he couldn’t find work here in Maine. How pathetic is that? If a sitting senator cannot find work here in Maine we are in trouble. I trul...
