  • The Right View: Film raises the question of a world without 'America'

    Dinesh D'Souza's "America" was not what I was expecting. In the promotions for the documentary, D’Souza states, “America. Imagine what the world would be like without her.” It was a fascinating concept to me, to see one person’s interpretation of what the world woul...

  • The Universal Notebook: Confessions of a (recovering) soccer dad

    Our daughter Tess played soccer from the time she was a little girl until she got to college. Prior to her taking up the sport, I had little or no interest in the game. Then we lived the devoted lives of soccer moms and dads through travel team to premier and high school varsity soccer. It...

  • Letter: 'Wake up, South Portland'

    No matter what your politics or motivations, some decisions are a big "duh-uh" (as in “that’s so obvious”). Such is the decision to vote yes to renovate South Portland High School. Why? Because the cost of doing nothing is simply too high. South Portland is the only city ...

  • Letter: Re-elect Sen. Gerzofsky

    Following are the reasons I am glad to vote to re-elect Sen. Stan Gerzofsky: I know he has been actively involved in the complicated and sometimes sensitive negotiations during the BNAS closure. Specifically he has been instrumental in having Southern Maine Community College establish a l...

  • Letter: Send Dell'Olio to Augusta

    Scarborough voters have an exciting opportunity to elect a native son to the Legislature in District 128: Brian Dell'Olio. I have been fortunate to witness Brian's evolution from student to School Board chairman over the last several years. As a high school student he became involved with ...

  • Letter: Falmouth councilor backs Richard

    Mainers are suffering. Maine must go in a new direction. Complicated, it is not. Maine’s existing bureaucracy has ballooned, supporting programs of “wants” and not “needs.” It has ignored our current economic environment. No matter how well intended the legisla...
