  • The Universal Notebook: We are all illegal immigrants

    So President Barack Obama has finally decided to bypass Congress and enact sweeping immigration reforms himself. It's about time. House Republicans long ago forfeited the right to be considered anything other than obstructionist ideologues. They care more about winning than they do about s...

  • The Right View: Teach your children what it means to be an American

    On the occasion of America’s 238th birthday, I find myself wondering about our current state of affairs, and how we got here. I think I may have an idea. To the parents and grandparents out there, I ask this: Sit down with your children or grandchildren, and quiz them on the Constitu...

  • Letter: Falmouth wins with Davis

    Regarding your article about the possible or probable loss of the Narrow Gauge Railroad and Museum, such a loss might little affect Portland's cultural life, but if Portland and Maine's pasts are of any importance, the city should be doing everything it can to keep the railroad and museum in Port...

  • Letter: Re-elect Sen. Gerzofsky

    I am writing in support of Stan Gerzofsky continuing as our state senator. As a longtime small business owner in Brunswick, I know Stan to be a integral crucial and tireless part of our local delegation.

  • Letter: Falmouth should re-elect Nelson

    Rep. Mary Nelson has impressed me during her first term representing Falmouth in the state House and deserves to be elected again. She has been accessible to the public and to the Town Council to relay information and concerns back and forth so Falmouth’s voice can be heard in the Le...

  • The Universal Notebook: Cutler's anonymous critics keep the biggest secret

    Political campaigns have been doing opponent research and feeding unfavorable and unflattering tips to the news media for as long as I have been part of the media. But independent gubernatorial candidate Eliot Cutler is being targeted by a form of opposition research I have never seen befo...
