  • Letter: Denno has right background for Legislature

    As a Cumberland resident, I am grateful we have a candidate like Democrat Dale Denno prepared to represent our community in House District 45. Dale has the skills and experience to make our government more cost-effective and responsive to all Maine citizens. With an extensive business background,...

  • Letter: Denno for Cumberland state representative

    Democrat Dale Denno, a long time Cumberland resident, is getting my vote for state representative in House District 45. Dale has worked in the public and private sector, and contributed countless hours to public service. In his various roles, he has had the opportunity to successfully work with b...

  • Letter: Smart meters compound health problems

    I am one of many concerned citizens against wireless smart meters. I have had my sensitivity to electromagnetic frequency/radiation proved. In addition to the culmination of existing wireless technology, we are now forced with even greater amounts from wireless meters on every home, school and... 1

  • Short Relief: Now that the election dust has settled ...

    Nationally, I don’t think there is any other way to view the mid-term election than as a repudiation of the Obama administration and its allies in Congress. You can say that there was an element of irrationality to that repudiation, but then the same can be said of the wave of emotion that...

  • Letter: Say no to smart electric meters

    I called Central Maine Power and said, "Please remove my smart meter as soon as possible." They did. I know this is controversial and CMP is not happy with customers calling with this request. However, I encourage citizens to do this. We do not know enough yet, and as in many other instances, thi... 1

    I have seen a steady stream of bond issues appearing on our ballots, and as far as I can remember, I have not seen many that were defeated. I can’t help but wonder how many of those bonds would have been voted down if the people were asked to immediately start funding the repayment of those...

  • Letter: Beem provides little amusement

    Edgar Allen Beem's column of Nov. 17-19 ("Let's recap, shall we? … ") is not in the tradition of a mature political thinker confronted by adversity, as expressed in Mo Udall's response to his primary election loss to Jimmy Carter in 1976: "The people have spoken … the bastards!" Ud... 1

  • Letter: Higgins Beach is everyone's resource

    Higgins Beach is a public beach, parts owned (and taxpayer funded) by the town and the state, and the roads to Higgins Beach are public.  The streets at Higgins Beach are already restricted to parking for longer lengths of time than other Scarborough b...

  • Letter: Beem misplaces the blame

    Edgar Allen Beem's column, or should I say, "tirade" ("Mainers immune to tea party hysteria"), showcases his own, as-well-as the rest of the extreme left's, hysteria over the results of both the national mid-term elections, as well as Maine's gubernatorial and legislative elections – result...

  • Letter: Falmouth citizens should vote on buildings

    Falmouth’s Town Council is divided about what to do with the Lunt and Plummer-Motz schools after these historic buildings are vacated in June. Some councilors support letting residents vote on keeping the buildings and part of the surrounding acreage in civic use, as proposed by a committee...
