  • Letter: Keep residential areas commerce-free in Freeport

    The Save Our Neighborhoods Coalition in Freeport is not opposed to Seacoast United’s indoor soccer arena being built in a suitable part of town, but we do oppose changing the zoning of a rural residential neighborhood to accommodate the building in its midst. This huge building for a pay-f...

    I just saw Edgar Allen Beem’s piece in The Forecaster ("The Universal Notebook: Just say no to growth") and wanted to mention a bumper sticker, “Question Growth&r...

  • Letter: OccupyMaine doesn't represent the 98%

    Just picked up the Portland edition. I can't tell you how totally disgusted I am seeing a picture of this so-called American burning the flag in Lincoln Park. Just where did these people get their brains, at the school of Numb-R-Us? Harry Brown states "(The flag) no longer stands for what ...

    At the risk of sounding glib or ghoulish, I must say I do enjoy a good funeral. And that’s a good thing because, by my own unreliable count, I attended at least eight over the past year.M y father-in-law and one of my brothers-in-law died last year, as did a family friend and five or six me... 1

  • The View From Away: Let's talk turkey (and fox, and moose ...)

    You don’t see a lot of wildlife in New York or Los Angeles. Well, a lot of the citizens are pretty feral, like the kid at Macy’s in Manhattan who shoved in between Carol and me to steal watches from the display case where we were standing. When I threw him across the store ais...
