  • Forecaster Forum: Lost history, found awareness

    As this summer waned, the national hot topic once again concerned racism. In Ferguson, Missouri, a police officer shot and killed a black teenager named Michael Brown, whose hands were raised in surrender. We had the same conversation a summer ago after a Florida jury acquitted George Zimm...

  • Letter: Freeport should back expansion of bus service

  • Letter: Watson's background is right for state House

    House District 51 voters have the chance to send a local representative to Augusta this November. Republican Byron Watson is not only a native of our district, he’s active in our community, serving on a number of boards and committees, coaching basketball and soccer, and volunteering his ti...

  • Letter: State playing games with Brunswick train barn

    The Maine Department of Environmental Protection waited until the last minute to inform the Northern New England Passenger Rail Authority that they had issues with NNEPRA's storm-water permit application for the proposed Brunswick layover facility. Remember this is the same application that NNEPR...

  • Letter: Send Manchester, Payeur to the Legislature

    We rarely get the chance to vote for candidates like Republicans Cathy Manchester and Greg Payeur, with long records of real accomplishment. Cathy is running in state Senate District 25. Maine's first female chief of police, a trained professional, now a highly successful Realtor, Cathy wi...
