  • The Universal Notebook: Literary exiles in Maine

    Some of the most interesting writers who ever worked in Maine did not write about Maine. When it comes to Maine, I’m as chauvinistic as a native gets, a local yokel who never ventured very far afield, but for some reason I have rarely been interested in Maine writers, with the possible exce...

As a physician who has practiced medicine for 35 years, I have witnessed the wonderful advances and benefits it has brought. Yet I also recognize its two most troubling aspects: the ever-in...

  • Letter: Richard for Falmouth rep

    I had the privilege of attending Mark Richard’s Campaign Rally at his home in Falmouth, on Sept. 12. Several individuals were asked to speak on Mark’s behalf, several of whom I know and respect. I know them for being sincere and honest individuals who care deeply about what happens...

  • Letter: Former state rep backs Davis

    As a resident of Maine Senate District 11, I am very pleased that Sen. Jerry Davis has again decided to offer his service to the citizens of the district. In his first term of office, Jerry demonstrated both fiscal prudence and political courage by resisting pressure and voted against a bloated ...

  • Letter: Re-elect Davis in Falmouth

    I am writing to lend my support to Jerry Davis' campaign for state Senate. Jerry has done a great job for us in the past and I especially appreciate his periodic mailings that recap what is happening in the Legislature. He is very approachable and willing to listen to his constituents. O...
