  • Capitol Notebook: Trying to break Maine’s bottle bill

    A few weeks ago, several middle-school students holding a bottle drive arrived at my doorstep to raise money for their sports team. Fortunately, I had a full bag to give them. Bottle drives, redemption centers, and the bottles that are left out on trash pickup night for folks to take and r...

  • The Universal Notebook: A Portland Museum of Art Biennial beef

    The Portland Museum of Art Biennial has become an important exhibition of new Maine art. This year it will be held from Oct. 8 to Jan. 3, 2016, but it is already generating controversy because of the way the artists were selected. The exhibition is underwritten by a bequest from the estate...

  • Letter: Re-elect Migliaccio in Freeport

    I encourage my neighbors in District 3 to re-elect Joe Migliaccio to the Freeport Town Council.

  • Letter: Migliaccio in Freeport District 3

    I have followed Joe Migliaccio's voting record as councilor in Freeport District 3 for many years. Joe takes time to consider, research and weigh the issues that affect not only our district, but Freeport as a whole. He brings courage and integrity to the many hours he devotes to his work.

  • 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: Vote no on Question 1

    Please vote no on referendum Question 1. This law gives our town and city clerks the necessary time to verify the eligibility of our newly registered voters. We all know that we do not live in a fraud-free society. We also know that identity theft is on the rise. So let’s give our clerks ti...

  • Letter: Question 2 ensures Maine's future
